The Young Men general presidency — President Steven J. Lund, Brother Bradley R. Wilcox and Brother Michael T. Nelson — recited the Aaronic Priesthood theme saying they “love it because it’s true and because we’ve made it our own.” They added that it can help young men know what to prioritize in their lives.

“As we remember the theme, it can be a source of strength and help us to be courageous as we make important decisions,” the presidency wrote.

Sister Andrea Muñoz Spannaus, second counselor in the Young Women general presidency, was joined by Young Women general advisory council member Lía Baez Vidal to offer some tips to help young people get into the habit of reading their scriptures.

  1. Put your scriptures on top of your pillow to remind you to read before you go to bed.
  2. Pick a topic of something you’re interested in learning about, and then pick a color to make notes for that specific topic.

Sister Amy A. Wright, first counselor in the Primary general presidency, posted a quote from Preach My Gospel that defines what virtue is.
