Mormon youth, 12-18-year olds, are at least as mobile as any Milennial, and as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they now have access to a new iPhone app, LDS Youth, that allows them to view video messages from peers worldwide, access stories, thoughts, articles, and inspirational messages through their portable devices. With each amenity, is the share-feature, enabling youth to spread encouragement by phone among their peers and families.
This app comes in conjunction with a newly updated LDS/Mormon website, Youth.lds.org (“Mormon” is a nickname for members of the Savior’s restored Church named in full above, that comes from a prophet by that name who lived anciently on this continent, abridging scriptures we are now privileged to have in our hands today).
Friends and youth of all faiths are welcome to visit the site, which contains statements of values, information regarding seminary instruction for youth (the objective of seminary, as mentioned on the site, is to help youth understand and rely on the teachings and Atonement of Jesus Christ, qualify for the blessings of the temple, and prepare themselves, their families, and others for eternal life with their Father in Heaven. All youth in the world can benefit from similar instruction. Please ask about this if you are interested and of another faith), pamphlets that guide youth in their daily interactions (dating, media consumption, friendships, commitments, etc.), and more.
There are venues for downloading free music, sharing faith witnesses through video or listening to others from around the world, places to ask an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ questions, and to learn doctrine, memorize scriptures and otherwise fortify oneself to walk in the world but not be of it.
We encourage all Mormon youth and friends of all faiths with youth 12-18 to visit the resources on this site and feel the Spirit of materials generated to address the specific needs of this growing generation whom we love and whom the Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, the 12 apostles who lead with him, and other leaders and parents also love greatly.
