Liahona Has Blessed Our Lives

We are so grateful that we can receive the Liahona here in Vanuatu. It is wonderful to read about people in different places and how the Church is prospering across the world. We have learned so much from the magazine. It has blessed our lives, and we will never be the same because of it.

A Pipe into a Well of Pure Waters

As the Gospel Doctrine teacher in my ward, I am deeply grateful for the great work you have done with LDS.org. Permission to own and access Church materials is extremely limited in our area. Having access to the scriptures and Church materials over the Internet is like having our own pipe into a well of pure waters. Please know that your efforts make a very real difference in the daily lives of our members. What a miracle it is for them to have our Heavenly Father’s message in their own languages.

Words That Can Help All People

How grateful I am to have the Liahona in my life! In it I find inspired words that can help all people, whether members of the Church or not. The messages from the First Presidency express their love for us, and the Latter-day Saint Voices section is full of good examples to follow. I read the magazine from the first page to the last because I know the Spirit will touch me and strengthen me as I do. I know that through this magazine the Light of Christ touches people, and I thank all of you who make it possible.

Liahona Is a Friend

When I read the Liahona, I know how fortunate I am to be part of this great work of the Lord. The Liahona helps me be a good member of the Church. I know the Liahona can be a great tool for missionary work. As members we can use it to help others come unto Christ. The Liahona is one of my best friends.

We Have Brothers and Sisters

I am so grateful that Heavenly Father helped me find His Church and become a member. I have learned great truths, become a better person, and am preparing for eternal life. It makes me so happy that my family is part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and that we are not alone—that we have brothers and sisters. The Church has been our strength in difficult years. We are grateful to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and also to the prophet and the apostles, who serve us.

Include your full name, home address, and ward and stake (or branch and district).

As you write, please consider the following guidelines: (1) Show, don’t tell. As often as possible, show a child discovering truth for himself or herself. (2) Write from a child’s perspective. For example, the story may convey what a child is thinking but should not describe a parent’s thoughts unless the parent is speaking. (3) Write about real children discovering or applying gospel truths in overcoming temptations and conflicts. See page F10 in this issue for an example.
