I try to make a logo for the mutual theme every year, and this came to me the other day for the 2015 mutual theme, Embark in the Service of God from D&C 4:2. After a few sketches to design, I still love it. It’s better than the Church’s logo, and it’s perfect for a youth conference t-shirt, camp flag, or even an invite to New Beginnings. As always, you’re welcome to use this logo on items you will not sell for profit. Please don’t steal my work and pretend it’s yours or repackage it.
I’ve also included a version without the year in case you use this as a theme for another event. Normally I don’t include the year on my logos, so I’m trying a new thing this year….
Print a copy of the following release to your print shop if you’re going to use it to have something professionally printed: “I give my permission so you can use this logo, “Embark in the Service of God – boat logo” from MormonShare.com by Jenny Smith on any item that you will not sell for profit.”
This logo can be used on Youth Conference T shirts or whatever else for the 2015 mutual theme. You have my permission to use it on any item you will not sell for profit. It shows the #serveHim with a heart, lightning (might), head (mind), and buff arm (strength).
Please don’t remove my URL, and please don’t edit this file and pretend it’s yours.
My fabulous friend, Jaime, is a convert to the church and has always wanted to go to Temple Square in Salt Lake City. So, when she finally saw it for the first time her excitment couldn’t be contained. Luckily I captured it in this photo! When I see her jump for joy at merely the sight of the temple, I’m reminded of how I should feel EVERYTIME I see and/or go to the temple. This is a great reminder of the joy that comes from living a virtuous life going to the temple!
Here is a poster my husband and I put together for Young Women in Excellence. We are doing a “Bee” theme to honor some girls who earned their “Honor Bees.” Also fits in with the 2014 Youth Theme, Moroni 10:32. Enjoy! Print, download, change, whatever.
I have recently been asked to sing at the funeral of a dear friend, and I want to share the music and the experience with you. She was my visiting teaching companion and a wonderful example of service and temple work. She befriended me from the start when I moved into my new ward in Hawai’i, and I grew to admire and love her dearly.
She planned her whole funeral service herself before her passing and she asked for a groups of mothers dressed in white to sing prelude hymns in parts:
293: Each Life That Touches Ours for Good
316: The Lord is My Shepherd
301: I am a child of God
318: Love at Home
She then wanted the song “Who Can Find a Virtuous Woman” from Psalm 31, performed at the beginning of the program. With funerals everything is last minute, and there isn’t any time to order music online and wait two weeks for it to arrive. It took some searching, phone calls, alot of luck, and my mother finally found a copy of a piece by Wanda Palmer that I think is the one I need. My amazing pianist helped me learn it in one practice. It is a beautiful piece, I’m surprised I have never heard it before, and that I couldn’t find a recording of it anywhere online. It would make a lovely addition to any Young Women’s Value night, or Relief Society activity or presentation.
