James 1: 5-6
For our New Beginnings we decided to use this year’s Mutual Theme. The logo and other resources provided by the church started us thinking…
The balloon quote with ask in it made us think of the artist Roy Lichtenstein and his art that has a comic book feel to it and he often uses balloon quotes
We took pictures of all the Young Women and using an app converted their pictures to a more “cartoon look”. They all wrote down questions. These were used in decorating the walls. We also used the question mark (?) and the building silhouette throughout the decor.

For refreshments we had cookies and milk….the cookies each had a surprise inside that was the mystery another ?.
We used rectangular vases with the building silhouette for a candy bar.
Each girl received a folder of information, a bracelet with the mutual theme and a framed picture of the Kansas City Temple.

We viewed the “Ask of God” Mutual theme video
We had a remarkable speaker, Evy Tanner a Laurel in our Stake. We asked her to speak on “Asking” our Heavenly Father and to tell of her personal experiences…She spoke of how when she was four she prayed to be turned into a chicken but was thankful that prayer was answered. She also shared how her family experienced a miracle this past June when their prayers (and thousands of others) were answered when her father was rescued after being lost at sea off of Honduras (see Fox news).
Evy delivered a powerful talk.
And our event:
