Mutual Activity Idea
It might be fun to hold a skit night. Use the New Era posters from past issues as a place to start for ideas then build a skit around a poster’s theme. Give each group about half an hour to plan and practice. If your Mutual is too small, pass out large sheets of paper and create your own posters. Send the best in to the New Era.
Personal Progress or Duty to God Idea
Try creating a work of art that captures how you feel about testimony. Even though you may not have a refined ability, take the challenge. Try writing a poem, drawing a picture, taking a photo, composing a song, or choreographing a dance. Use these experiences to fill a Duty to God goal in Educational, Personal, and Career Development or a Personal Progress goal as a Faith project.
Family Home Evening Idea
page 12 of this issue and read through some ideas on using the New Era. Create a file with some of your family’s favorite stories, poems, photos, or art from the New Era. When a family member needs to give a lesson or talk, your file may be of help. If you don’t want to tear up your back copies, you can print off articles or artwork from the magazine online at newera.lds.org.
