Each time I open one of the Church magazines, the smiles begin. I am amazed, excited, shedding tears, or a combination of the above. I want to read every single article and to keep most of them in my head or accessible. I advertise the magazines at church and to my family and friends.
I’m thrilled by the new eye-catching format. I marvel that nearly every theme or message is presented in an exciting, inviting manner. Seeing the Lord’s hand in all this, I marvel at the prayers and dedication of your staff as you respond in this season to the greater needs and challenges of Church members.
You have added references to articles and additional resources in the other magazines: games, songs, videos, and other ways to learn and build testimonies. I discover sources of joy, humor, encouragement, and unification for our youth and their families and leaders as they seek strength and hope. Our young people are rising to the challenge, becoming a lighthouse to those seeking a safe journey.
What great inspiration, resources, preparation, and courage you offer to Church members in this new version of the Church magazines. They are road maps to incredible blessings for members throughout the world.
