Preparing for Baptism with the Friend

Cherish C., age 7, California

I can’t wait until the Friend comes each month. When I see it, I immediately open it and start to read. I am going to be baptized in a couple of months. One of the ways I am preparing for my baptism is by reading the Friend.

A Good Decision

Logan R., age 11, Utah

I loved the story “A Day to Decide” (Friend, November 2010). One Sunday during general conference I went to my grandparents’ house. General conference was going to start in 10 minutes, but I wanted to play on the computer. I had a feeling I shouldn’t turn on the computer, but I did anyway. After a few moments, I decided to turn off the computer and watch conference instead. After conference, my mom asked us questions about what we heard. I got every question right! I’m glad I decided to listen to conference.

The Friend Needs You!

The Friend needs your help as we start a new section in the magazine next year called Question Corner. You can help us answer questions about getting along with friends, being a missionary, strengthening testimonies, and more. Here are two questions you can answer to help us get started. (Look for a special Question Corner sneak peek this November!)

I don’t know anyone I can invite to church. What are other ways I can be a missionary now?

My brother and I argue a lot. I want to be nicer, but it’s hard. What are some things I can do to get along better?
