The theme this year for mutual is:

“O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day” (D&C 4:2).

We decided to use this theme for our New Beginnings.

We decided we would “Embark” upon a quest.  This quest would take us to the

“Island of Love (Heart)”

The Region of Might”

“The Wilderness of Mind”

and

“The Country of Strength”

We started in the Relief Society Room with opening exercises and then we used four classrooms; one for each of the “quests”.  The refreshments were set up in the Young Women’s room.

As each quest was accomplished they received a reward:  A box of conversation hearts for the Island of Love (Heart), Lip Balm for the Region of Might, a sailor hat for the Wilderness of Mind, and an anchor charm for the Country of Strength.

The Young Women did a “Heart Attack”

First the book, “Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch” was read to the Young Women.

Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch

And then each girl planned who they would give “hearts” to:

Heart Attack on the Island of Love (Heart)

Region of Might

Some of the Mightiest Women are found in the Scriptures or in our church history.  We played a game of “Who Is It?”

Each girl gave clues as to their favorite Scripture or church history woman and everyone tried to guess who it was.

Women in the scriptures and church history are some of the best examples of a person (women) of might.

Region of Might "Who Am I"

Wilderness of Mind

The ability to know is not always an easy thing.  Yet Joseph Smith stated:

“I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it;”

The Young Women watched a clip of the Joseph Smith First Vision and then wrote their testimony on paper.

For the movie clip we used the first 8 minutes of

Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration

found on youtube here:

After watching the  clip of the Joseph Smith First Vision the Young Women wrote down their testimony.

Country of Strength

For the Country of Strength we used FOR THE STRENGTH OF YOUTH.  In preparation for one Mutual Activity before New Beginnings we had each Young Woman make her own Mormonad.  These were put up around the room along with Mormonads from the church.  Each YW class prepared either a commercial or news broadcast or music video or cheer that had to do with FOR THE STRENGTH OF YOUTH.
