“That’s How I’ll Be” is just one song from the 2016 Mutual theme album!
The 2016 Mutual theme album is a collection of songs written by Latter-day Saint youth about staying true to our beliefs in today’s ever-changing world.
Teens Malorie Ward and Kylee Schaffer teamed up for “That’s How I’ll Be,” which Malorie says is about “staying strong in what you believe in even when the world changes so much around you.” (How can you stay strong? Check out “NOT of the World.”)
“It’s about not being afraid to stand up for what you believe in and following Christ’s example and setting that example for other,” Kylee adds. “At our age, it’s hard to sometimes remember who we are and why we’re here. And that is to come unto Christ and make it back to Him every day.” (Check out “How to Come unto Christ.”)
As Malorie explains, sometimes life can get busy, and all that busyness can lead to us forgetting to work on our connection with Heavenly Father.
“That’s why I wanted to write this song,” she says. “I wanted to be better. I want to be more mindful of the gospel and the beauty, miracles, and blessings it brings to my life. There are so many temptations and things around that distract us, but we need to remember what’s truly important. The only way to find true peace and happiness in this world is by following Christ.”
