I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful stories and messages the magazine gives. I’ve been a member of the Church for three years and can tell you that I have found a lot of answers from reading the New Era. I love the story “Chapter and Verse” (Mar. 2001). It’s a great story that helped me answer my friend’s questions. I am going to continue reading because I love the New Era.
I just want to thank you for the New Era. It’s really been a great help to me. I enjoy reading it, and I love to read about other people. Thank you so much for taking time to help youth like me.

I need to write and thank you for “Master Your Anger” in the August 2000 issue. I have a hard time finding ways to avoid my anger, and this article helped me deal with it a lot better. I also need to thank you for the magazine. It gives me such inspiration in all I do. It’s great to have a magazine just for youth.
Being one of the few members of the Church in our place in the Philippines, I really find living the gospel hard because I am surrounded by many worldly things. The Word of Wisdom and law of chastity are two big problems. The article “The Long and Short of It” in the March 2000 issue really did strike me because I know I have clothes that are too revealing. That article helped me overcome my habit of wearing clothes like that. I’m hoping that many young women will read and ponder the message in the article.

I’m writing about a story that appeared in March 1997. Thank you for the article “The Temple: The Place for You.” I recently attended the London England Temple for my endowment, and now I visit the temple once a month. The temple is a very important place.
I just want to say how much I enjoy reading the New Era. It helps me with my problems and makes me smile when I’m upset. Keep up the good work.

I love the New Era. The magazine always seems to be written just for me. I love all of the articles, and each time I get the magazine, it has answers that help me.
I wanted to say how very much I appreciated the song “He Is There” in the September 2000 issue. All of the music you print seems to be just what I need to hear. Please print more music in future issues.
