Friends by Mail


A Trip to the Sacred Grove

Brianna J., age 10, Iowa

My family took a trip to Palmyra, New York. We took a tour of Joseph Smith’s home, and we visited the Sacred Grove. While we were in the Sacred Grove, I felt the Spirit and I knew that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus live.

Thanks for the Web Site and Magazine

Eliza L., age 9, New York

I really enjoy the Friend magazine’s Web site. It is the perfect thing to do on Sundays because it helps me keep the Sabbath day holy. I love the puzzles online and am so glad there are so many things I can print out. I also love the interactive coloring pages. I love the Friend magazine too. I especially liked the “Help to Heal” and “Maria’s Medal” stories in the February 2009 issue. I also like Friends by Mail. Thanks for everything!

Fun with Friend Games

Taylor D., age 11, California

What I especially like about the Friend are the games, such as the “Scripture Picture Game” in the November 2008 issue. My family had a fun time playing it for family home evening! I like the games because they offer a fun learning experience.
