The Friend

Learn to Play

The August 2010 Friend includes a feature on pages 24 and 25 that gives you and your children ideas about how you can put on a play in your home. You’ll get a chance to test your newfound knowledge by performing the play included on pages 26–27, “Naaman Learns to Obey.”

Faith in God

The Friend includes a “Faith in God Challenge” on page 23 that invites children to use their scriptures to learn more about King Benjamin’s address in Mosiah 2:1–6:2. Completing the activity will help children move closer to completing their Faith in God requirements.
