The New Era
Developing Christlike Attributes
This month’s Come, Follow Me lessons for youth focus on becoming more Christlike. One of the lesson outlines for Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women asks, “How can I become more Christlike?” Find ways to develop Christlike attributes using key teachings from Preach My Gospel in “Follow in His Footsteps” on page 40.
Real Mission Life
Youth often wonder what it’s like to be a full-time missionary. In “Mission Life” on page 18, see what missionaries do in a typical week as they strive to bring souls unto Christ.
Be a Missionary!
Stories in the October Friend show how anyone can be a missionary—even in unexpected ways. “Prayers on the Pitcher’s Mound” (page 10) tells about a team who used baseball to share the gospel. You can read accounts from children on how they have been missionaries in “I Can Be a Missionary Now” (page 24). In “Family MTC” (page 26), a young boy prepares to go on a mission—even though it’s still eight years away. Read more about the Primary theme, “I Will Share the Gospel with All of God’s Children,” on page 28.
I would like to express my appreciation for the photography in the most recent conference issue of the Ensign (May 2013). It was artistic, creative, and focused on the family. I couldn’t put the magazine down until I saw all the photos!
