Follow in the footsteps of our Savior, whose example and teachings define the path for every follower of Jesus Christ.

Your Covenant to Always Remember Christ(click to view larger)
This month, your Sunday lessons will focus on ordinances and covenants (see lds.org/youth/learn). Each week as you partake of the sacrament, you renew your baptismal covenants and promise to “always remember Him” (see D&C 20:77, 79). But how can you always remember Christ when you have so many other things to think about throughout the week, such as your homework or activities with family or friends? Is He supposed to be in your thoughts every moment?
Well, the answer has a lot less to do with whether you can concentrate on your algebra equations and your baptismal covenants at the same time and a lot more to do with how you live. Are the choices you’re making ones that Christ would make? Are you following His example in your everyday life? As you strive to live as a follower of Christ, that’s one way you can honor your covenant to “always remember Him.”
So, what can you do to live more fully as a follower of Christ, to always remember Him in your actions? You’ll find lots of inspired ideas as you prayerfully study these talks from the most recent general conference:
“A Sure Foundation” by Bishop Dean M. Davies (lds.org/go/73Sure)
As you read or watch these talks, study what they teach about the ordinances and covenants you’re discussing in your Sunday lessons. Are there stories you can share in your classes or quorums or with your family? Are there things you can do to help others make and keep sacred covenants? What can you do to better keep your covenants? As you seek Christ, the Spirit will guide you in your study and help you know how you can fulfill your covenants and always remember the Savior.
