“No matter what you face, you can find peace. ... You can feel the quiet assurance that things will work out.” —Young Men and Young Women General Presidencies
Resources for teaching the 2018 Mutual theme for the youth of the Church—which focuses on finding peace in Christ—are now live on ChurchofJesusChrist.org.
2018 Mutual theme
Throughout 2018, youth will have the opportunity to memorize and apply the teachings found in Doctrine and Covenants 19:23: “Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me” (emphasis added).
“We testify that is true,” the General Presidencies of the Young Women and the Young Men said in a joint statement. “We have seen it in our own lives, and if you follow this pattern, God will fulfill His promise of peace in your life as well.
“No matter what you face, you can find peace. That doesn’t mean all those questions or concerns will immediately vanish, but you can feel the quiet assurance that things will work out.”
