In the references, Duty to God stands for the Aaronic Priesthood: Fulfilling Our Duty to God guidebooks. Personal Progress stands for the Young Women Personal Progress booklet. Some Duty to God and Personal Progress activities listed in the guides may be worked on during lesson time, or you may encourage quorum or class members to complete them at home.
