What’s in It for You
Mutual Activity Idea
• As a class or quorum, select a ward member or two who have consistently contributed and served other ward members. Make a card and a treat to take to them to thank them for their good works.
• Share thoughts about the value of each individual and how they contribute to the class. Discuss how our thinking can be uplifted when we search for the good in each other. Write a list of positive things about each class member.
Personal Progress or Duty to God
• Read the article “Meeting Your Goliath” by President Thomas S. Monson. Memorize one of the two poems quoted in President Monson’s article. Recite the poem to your parents or to your youth leaders. Explain the meaning and counsel of the poem.
Family Home Evening Idea
• As a family, look through the recent general conference talks to find counsel from the prophet. Talk about how you and your family can apply this counsel. Report back in next week’s family home evening about what you’ve noticed personally and as a family.
