I got all these by using http://scriptures.byu.edu/

Arise and Shine Forth Quotes

The Lord's people are a covenant people under solemn obligation to him so to live as he has declared to the Prophet Joseph to become a standard to all the nations, and if there was ever a time in the history of the world when it needed a people that would manifest in its lives all the principles of the gospel, that time is today. - Joseph L Wirthlin, 1946 General Conf.

Pioneer handcart treks for youth are a local option. Stake presidents and bishops decide whether handcart treks will be held in their area. The following guidelines are provided for stakes and wards that choose to hold a trek activity.

Handcart treks require significant planning and supervision to achieve meaningful purposes with minimal risks. Stake presidents and bishops should share these guidelines with all leaders who will be involved in the trek.

2010 Mutual Theme: Be strong and of a good courage

Posted August 27, 2009 -- first on the web! Visit MormonShare.com frequently for theme updates and more!

The 2010 LDS Mutual theme is "Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest" (Joshua 1:9).

Be strong and of a good courage theme items This year the church is releasing a DVD titled A Brand New Year: 2010 Youth Celebration that is to be used to introduce the new mutual theme and help youth focus on living the standards found in For the Strength of Youth. From the Church's site: "Local priesthood and auxiliary leaders should review the DVD as soon as it arrives and plan to use it to introduce the annual Mutual theme in New Year’s Eve activities or other special events where the theme is presented." The DVD will be mailed to all stakes, districts, wards, and branches worldwide in November 2009.

My Stuff

Downloads

  • Download the 2010 Mutual Theme Videos at youth.LDS.org - scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the new stuff.
  • T-Shirt iron-ons - The church has made some free t-shirt graphics to iron on for youth conference! (Unfortunately, the PDF from the Church only has one iron on per page, so I stole it and created one with multiples per page so that you don't waste so much expensive iron on transfer paper.) I think mine is better (naturally), but the official one does a good job pointing out that we're an international church.
  • Download FTSOY commitment cards from LDS.org - These seem to be 3x5 inch size. Sorry -- it's again a print 1 per page thing.

Music

  • Download the music for this year's theme. This page also has the Be Strong and Of a Good Courage CD cover art so that you can make your own professional looking music CDs for youth conferences, new beginnings, and other activities.
