Each month, LDS youth around the world study a different doctrinal principle that is coordinated across Young Men, Young Women, and youth Sunday School classes.

The topic for November is Spiritual and Temporal Self-Reliance. The youth will develop skills they need to become spiritually self-reliant. They will also learn what it means to be temporally self-reliant. To overcome the temptations they face every day, they will need to have their own testimonies—they will not always be able to rely on the testimonies of others. They will learn how to find answers to gospel questions and gain their own testimonies of the truth. As they become self-reliant, they will be better prepared to serve and care for others in need.

Parents, grandparents, siblings, and leaders can help the youth learn these doctrines if they will study the doctrines themselves and regularly discuss the doctrines with the youth during the month. Below is a list of the lessons that may be taught during the month.  Quorum and class presidencies and leaders will use the Spirit to determine what is taught.

The  instructional resources and videos referenced in the lesson outlines are available on LDS.org and also in the Gospel Library mobile app for convenient offline use on Sunday. The youth teaching sections Getting Started, Teaching the Gospel in the Savior’s Way, and Learning and Teaching Ideas are also available on the mobile app.
