What’s in It for You

Personal Progress or Duty to God

• Read D&C 20:38–67 and make a chart listing the duties of the deacons, teachers, and priests in the Aaronic Priesthood as explained in these scriptures. (See page 31 of this issue for a quiz.) Be aware of ways you can help Aaronic Priesthood members fulfill their duties.

Mutual Activity Idea

• Organize a service project and include your nonmember friends. Also include them in the planning. You might look to the community as a focus for your service.

• For a joint activity, invite the priest serving as the first assistant to the bishop to read aloud “A Note to the Good Guys” on page 22. Have everybody add to the list of things they have noticed about boys who make good choices. Invite the Laurel president to read “A Note to the Good Girls” and again add to the list. You might also invite the bishop or another ward leader to give some concluding remarks about the importance of good choices.

Family Home Evening Idea

• To answer President Henry B. Eyring’s question “Why the Book of Mormon?” on page 6, have your family read together the title page of the Book of Mormon and the first three paragraphs of the Introduction. Then read together 2 Nephi 25:26. And finally, read the whole chapter of 3 Nephi 11. If you have young children in your family, use art or illustration when you read in 3 Nephi about Christ’s appearance in the New World.
