Wow! It’s almost a new year and a new Mutual theme. Does time fly—or what? And what a great message our leaders have chosen in 1 Timothy 4:12?”Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” In these times when the world is crazy all around us, we can find strength in these and other great words the prophets have given us.

I hope your girls (and guys) enjoy singing these simple, yet beautiful words in "Be Thou an Example of the Believers." My aim is always to ...

use the scripture word-for-word with a few lines of embellishment. Sheet music for this song is available in unison (solo) or SSA. It is appropriate for YWYM sacrament meeting presentations, but please remember that all music should be approved by your bishop before using in sacrament meeting.

"Hold High Your Light," a lighter song for camp and other occasions, is also based on the 1 Timothy verse and is written in two parts. I envision goofy actions and dance steps. ? You don’t have to go that far—just let loose and enjoy it.

What awesome youth we have in the Church today. Best wishes to you in your programs this year!
