The New Era
Preparing for Missionary Service
President Thomas S. Monson has said that the Lord needs more missionaries (Ensign, November 2010). Help your children answer the prophet’s call for more missionaries by talking to them about the “I Will Prepare” certificate on page 11 of the March Friend. Children can sign the certificate and cut it out to remind them that the Lord wants them to be prepared to be missionaries.
Know Your Friend Better
Have you ever wondered how Friend editors choose which stories to publish or how Friend designers find the right art? What about how the magazines are printed? Matt and Mandy will help you and your children find the answers to these questions and learn several other tidbits in “Behind the Scenes of the Friend” on pages 24–25.
While I am a lifelong subscriber of the magazines, I’m somewhat frustrated that the newer printing fonts are lighter and much smaller than the previous magazines, especially the sidebar notes. I’m hoping that this may not be a permanent thing.
What an incredible
Thank you! What a way to inspire us. This Ensign will be kept forever. Great work to those who put it all together.
Somebody had a wonderful idea. I love it.
