What’s in It for You


Mutual Activity Idea

  • Have the group create a list of questions similar to those answered in To the Point on page 34. Ask the bishop if he, or someone he recommends, would be willing to come to Mutual to discuss the questions he feels are appropriate. Submit the list of questions in advance.

Personal Progress or Duty to God

  • Use one or more of the suggestions for scripture study in the Idea List on page 15. Set a goal to read a certain number of chapters, and use your study to fulfill one of the Personal Progress or Duty to God requirements.

Family Home Evening Idea

  • As a family, create a plan in case of emergencies. Figure out an escape route from each room in your house in case of fire and practice these escape routes together. In addition, get a container, and place copies of family photos and other important documents inside. Put the container in a place where it will be easy to grab and take with the family. In addition, make sure each member of the family has telephone numbers to call and a place to meet if an emergency should happen while away from the home.
