What’s in It for You


Mutual Activity Idea

  • Have a “Display Your Hobby” night in Mutual. Invite youth with unusual hobbies, collections, or crafts to make a short presentation explaining, sharing, or demonstrating them. For example, Jamie Lessie in the article “Right on Track,” on page 24, could bring some of her awards and explain how she and her family participate in racing. Learning more about each other’s interests can help bring unity to your Mutual.

Personal Progress or Duty to God

  • Read the Q&A on page 14. Write your testimony and place it in a copy of the Book of Mormon to give away. Pray about a person you could give the book to. Follow through by giving the book to that person.

Family Home Evening Idea

  • Challenge all your family members to go through their music CDs (or even all your family’s DVDs) and determine if there are any they should not be listening to or watching. Have each family member take a turn playing a favorite song and explaining why they enjoy it. This can help the family appreciate and understand one another’s tastes.
