Intellectual Reserve, Inc.

The Young Women and Young Men General Presidencies of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have announced that the 2023 Youth Theme is “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

The youth theme corresponds with the 2023 course of study for seminary and Come, Follow Me, which will be the New Testament, and goes hand in hand with the Children and Youth program.

The notice dated September 5 encourages parents and youth leaders to teach principles from the theme scripture at home and at church throughout the year. The theme can be used as a topic for youth sacrament meeting talks and to provide focus for youth activities, including camps, youth conferences, and devotionals. The theme also will be emphasized during FSY conferences worldwide.

Resources—including music, videos, and art—will be available in the coming months on, on social media channels, and in the For the Strength of Youth magazine.

“We commend you for your diligent efforts in helping the youth embrace this year’s theme from Proverbs 3:5–6,” the General Officers stated in the notice. “Youth in your stewardships are being blessed by your teachings and leadership at home, in Church meetings, and at activities based on this theme.”
