Come Unto Christ
The 2014 Mutual Theme for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is "Come Unto Christ." The theme is based on the scripture: “Come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness” (Moroni 10:32).
My stake is focusing on "Hastening the Work" this year, and one of the things they continually mention is that they want each member in our stake to have a missionary experience. The experience doesn't have to be baptizing someone, or even having a friend take discussions; they want each person to help someone come unto Christ. I am going to focus on helping the women I visit teach to come closer to Christ this month.
The youth theme this year is focusing on helping the youth to develop relationships with their Savior, and this includes helping friends and family to do the same. I am excited to see the youth in my ward and stake grow closer to Christ as they learn more about Him, obey the commandments, and deny themselves of all ungodliness and embrace lives of happiness, purity, and faithful living.
These two printables are more for the Young Women than the Young Men (probably a little too girly for those Deacons...), but they highlight the beauty and serenity that each Young Woman can feel as they come closer to the Savior of the world. I know that coming unto Christ is the best thing that each person can do, and I am grateful for the personal relationship I have with Him.
What are you doing this year to come unto Christ?
Diamonds in the Rough
Invitations were hand delivered in a simple black envelope, tied with black ribbon. Each name was written in metallic silver on the front of the envelope.
The Relief Society room was transformed into our Young Women's Diamond Boutique
Décor included: black and white table coverings and drapes, black tulle, topiaries, lighting, large acrylic crystals, and a simple vase filled with faux beautiful soft pink roses (which were given to our new and incoming Beehives during the program).
The Young Women Medallion was displayed on a black velvet neck display. And the new Personal Progress booklet, Strength of Youth pamphlet and Guidebook for Parents and Leaders of Youth, each received a "bling, bling makeover", using clear rhinestone stickers. the YW values were also displayed.
My daughter's dress form was transformed into our daughter of a king, complete with a few of the large acrylic crystals around the neck and a sparkly "Diamonds in the Rough" sash, which I made using a piece of black scrap material and felt letters stickers I found at a local fabric store (simple, yet adorable!).
Along with the bling was a large piece of coal, a simple rock we found at the lake recently, spray painted black.
Brie sang her first solo in public. She and one of our beehives sang "Daughter of a King", by Jenny Phillips. They each sang a verse on their own and sang the chorus together. Brie was so nervous, but she did wonderful.
After the program, the Young Women were directed to the back of the room. There they found two tables which were set-up with supplies for each of them to make their own "Be Strong and of Good Courage" tiles - because that was the mutual theme for 2010. (supplies: 4x4 tiles, prepared vinyl lettering, and Pampered Chef scrapers)
We served up Chocolate Mousse Parfaits with Brownies and Caramel Sauce, Amy's creation.
