What’s in It for You


Mutual Activity Idea

  • As a group, plan and assemble 72-hour kits to use in case of a natural disaster or other emergency in your area. With the permission of your bishop and leaders, ask the emergency preparedness specialist in your ward or stake to give you some advice on what kind of things should go in your kits.

Personal Progress or Duty to God

  • To fulfill one of the Knowledge experiences in Personal Progress, try reading a book written by a General Authority. Arrange to tell your parents or Young Women leader about the book.

Family Home Evening Ideas

  • In the family home evening before Easter, read the scripture and look at the artwork illustrating each day of the last week of the Savior’s life on earth. You can find the scriptures and artwork starting on page 22.

  • Learn the song “When the Holy Spirit Speaks” on page 21. Discuss the meaning of the words.
