“ARISE, ARISE, ARISE…” If you have seen the youth video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the 2012 Youth Theme Song, you will recognize this graphic of a mountain below, with an arrow. Each year, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chooses a Youth theme.
and the 2012 youth theme is…
2012: ARISE AND SHINE FORTH…
”Arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations.” (D&C 115:5).(You can find a LOVELY printable by BROOKE HERE.)
Since this was the youth theme for 2012, they created a VIDEO for the theme song with these graphics in it (below).
Also….drum roll please…with a QR code on the graphic that takes you right to the video link. I love this video because it reminds us and our teens to “arise” and be their best selves that we can be. With so much crap in the world today, it’s a much-needed reminder for all of us, right?! The great thing about this printable, is that you can easily print them and hand them out if you would like. I am a leader of the youth group in my area and we have handed these out secretly to the girls for the to find (like in the video), to remind them to “ARISE”.
I don’t know about you, but it seems that any reminders to look to GOD, is much-appreciated in my day to day routine. Life is awesome, but it is tough and we have to kick and push and scramble our way through our trials to survive, so bring on the inspiration, I need it!
Here are a couple themes that have been chosen in the past…
2009: BE THOU AN EXAMPLE OF THE BELIEVERS…
“Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity’ (1 Timothy 4:12).
2010: BE STRONG AND OF A GOOD COURAGE…
“Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest” (Joshua 1:9).
2011: WE BELIEVE…
“”We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul – We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all
things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.”
