Making the Most of This Issue


For Your Book of Mormon Studies

  • Yes, the Book of Mormon was written for the Lamanite, the Jew, and the Gentile. But it was also written specifically for Bill, and Mary, and you. See “Power in Principles,” page 10.

  • Lehi spoke of the sweet fruits of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In “Joy in the Journey,” page 48, author S. Michael Wilcox tells of some of the times he has personally tasted that fruit.

Heber J. Grant

Known for his persistence, President Grant presided over the Church during some of his century’s most difficult years. Learn more about the life of the man whose teachings we will be studying in priesthood and Relief Society lessons this year. See page 56.

Finding Time for Eternity

The temple is a wonderful haven from the hectic rush of everyday life—if only you can get away from that rush in the first place. Find helpful suggestions in “Making Time for the Temple,” page 68.

Especially for Singles

  • What does “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” have to do with single adults? See page 32.

  • Parenthood is challenging even for a father and mother working together. How do single parents meet the challenges? See “The Gospel and the Single Parent,” page 62.

Blessed from a Distance

Stricken with a rare illness, a young Brazilian Saint had been helped many times by priesthood blessings. Then came the day when an Apostle pronounced a healing blessing from the pulpit. See “He Restoreth My Soul,” page 72.
