Friends by Mail


Learning to Do Better

Mary B., age 9, Nebraska

I’m glad I get the Friend. Whenever I get in trouble or forget something, I want to do better. The Friend helps me learn. Sometimes I like to get on the Friend website and play games and color online.

Understanding Modesty

Victoria M., age 9, Georgia

I loved the story about the girl who got clothes from her friend, but only kept the modest clothing (“Modest at Any Age,” May 2010). My family and I used that story to learn that our bodies are temples and that we should keep them sacred and be modest. Now we all dress modestly. I would love to see more stories about modesty in the Friend so I can learn more about it. I want to share the stories with my friends to help them learn too.

A Reliable Friend

Cordigan S., age 12, Idaho

I really like the Friend. I usually read it a couple times each month. Sometimes I read the really old ones too. I think it is cool how pretty much all the stories are about children. I like how the stories are about important things, but are still very interesting. I hope the Friend is around for a long time.

Dear Friends,

Were you ever nervous to ask a question? Maybe it’s because you didn’t know that other people had the exact same question too!

Asking questions is a great way to learn. That’s why we’ve created a new feature called Question Corner. It’s a place where you can ask questions and share your ideas.

Look on page 47 for our first Question Corner. Then write to let us know your question.

Keep asking!
