Friends by Mail


Colorful Cake

Christopher W., age 8, South Africa

When I saw the cake in the Friend that President Monson’s mother used to make (Aug. 2012), I came home and made it. It was fun and tasted really good. Here’s what it looked like.

Faith Like the Pioneers

Allie T., age 7, Washington, USA

I love part three of Sarah Ann’s story (Sept. 2012). She kept praying, and her crops grew. When I read the three stories, I felt the Holy Ghost. I want to have faith like Sarah Ann. Thank you for writing about her in the Friend!

Playing for Primary

Kennedy W., age 10, Texas, USA

A few years ago I read an article in the Friend called “Primary Pianists” (April 2010). It was about some children my age learning to play the piano so they could play during their Primary sacrament meeting program. I said to myself, “I can do that!” I started playing prelude music for Primary, and by the end of the year, I was able to play a song during the Primary program! I really love using my talent to serve the Lord.

How We Read the Friend

Graham W., Devin D., and Gavin M., all age 4, Georgia, USA

Graham, Devin, and Gavin like to get together and sing the songs out of the Friend. It brings them closer as friends and helps them to love one another.

Dear Friends,

Whenever you have a problem, you can find help in the scriptures.

On pages 25–26 we’ve put a set of scripture cards for you to cut out and place in your scriptures. When you have a problem, you can look for the card that matches your situation. Then turn the card over and look up the scriptures on the back.

Love,

The Friend
