• Pray. Try to pray on your knees morning and night. And remember—you can offer a silent prayer to Heavenly Father anytime, anywhere.

  • Read the scriptures. Pray to understand them, and try to follow the righteous examples you find there.

  • Read the Friend. In this magazine you can read stories, do activities, find family home evening ideas, and look for the hidden CTR ring!

  • Show love for your family. And don’t forget to join in family home evening each week. This is a time you and your family can grow closer, learn about the gospel, play games, and share a great treat.

  • Keep the commandments. They are recorded in the scriptures and given to us by modern prophets, who speak for Heavenly Father.

  • Learn and live My Gospel Standards (printed in the Faith in God booklet; see also Friend, June 2006, 36). They will help you choose the right.

  • Keep your covenants— the promises you made when you were baptized (see Mosiah 18:8–9). Attend church so you can renew your covenants, learn, and build friendships.

  • Treat others kindly and serve them. You will feel the Savior’s Spirit with you when you follow His example.

  • Be happy! Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love you and have a plan for you. That’s something to smile about!
