Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women

Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women

In 2017, Aaronic Priesthood quorum advisers and Young Women instructors will teach from Come, Follow Me: Learning Resources for Youth.

The Mutual theme for 2017 is “If any of you lack wisdom, let him  ask of God , that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him  ask in faith , nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed” ( James 1:5–6 ; emphasis added).
