Ideas for the 2017 mutual theme will be posted here beginning in October 2016.
Yes, I’ll be doing a theme bracelet again this year for Young Women. Incredibly, it is even more awesome than last year’s, with suede cord and charms! You’re going to love it! And due to popular demand, I’ll be offering mutual theme bracelet kits for girls camp leaders as well. Pre-orders will begin in October. Stay tuned!
2017 Mutual theme
The Church has announced that the Mutual theme for 2017 is “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed” (James 1:5–6; emphasis added).
As usual, “The purpose of the yearly theme is to provide opportunities for youth worldwide to learn about, study, internalize, and apply the principles taught in the scripture. Youth are encouraged to memorize the scripture, study its doctrine, and act on the principles learned throughout the year.
“In addition, the theme can be used to enrich Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for sacrament meeting talks given by youth, and to provide focus for youth activities—including camps, youth conferences, and devotionals.
“Resources—including videos, music, and suggestions for using the theme throughout the year—will be available to leaders at http://youth.lds.org and in Church magazines at the end of 2016 and throughout 2017. An email will be sent to leaders later this year when these resources become available.”
