Answers:

Be a Friend

Elder Marvin J. Ashton

“A friend is a priceless possession because a true friend is one who not only is willing to love us the way we are, but is able to leave us better than he found us. …

“A person is poor when he is friendless, but even poorer when he ceases being a friend.” Elder Marvin J. Ashton (1915–94) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “It’s No Fun Being Poor,” Ensign, Sept. 1982, 73.

Modest Wedding Dresses

Flipping through a bridal magazine probably won’t help you find something modest and temple appropriate to wear on your wedding day. But if you shop carefully, you can find a modest, beautiful wedding dress. You could also make your own dress. Find a pattern and white fabric you like, and go to work.
