Thanks a lot for publishing the story “A Day in the Life of a Superstar” (June 2001). I feel the same way Mike does. I feel there is no one to talk to about the way I feel about the Church and things. Lots of kids I know make fun of the Church. I live in Utah, so I know there are a lot more Mormons at my school than in other places. I just wish they would hold their standards high and act like examples instead of giving in to peer pressure.
I would like to thank you all so much for all you do with this magazine. For a long time I could barely get myself to read the scriptures, but I could read the New Era. After a while the magazine became a sort of a warm-up for me, making me want to read the scriptures to gain even more from them. The stories have impacted my life so much, and I am forever indebted to the work put into this magazine.

I just want to say that your articles and stories are so good. You can always learn something from them. I especially loved the story “Just Hanging Out” (Aug. 2001). It taught me about dating and stuff. Thanks so much for making me excited to get the New Era every month.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your magazine. Questions and Answers always help me because they are questions I have, and the youth give great answers. The stories are awesome. I love reading them because they are a large help in dealing with problems I have. Thank you so much!

Thank you for writing the article “My Terrible, Horrible Day” (Sept. 2001). I know exactly how that girl felt because there are days when I feel the same. And I know the power of the priesthood can help us in our daily activities. When I have really bad problems, a blessing is all it takes to put me back on my feet again. I really like this story.

I want to thank you so much for “My Terrible, Horrible Day” (Sept. 2001). I read that story right before school started, and I was so nervous because I had three super-tough classes. It reminded me of the wonderful gift of the priesthood. I am so grateful I am a member of the Church, and that I have a worthy priesthood holder for my father.
I just want to thank you for “Open Your Mouth” in the October 2000 issue. As a missionary this article helped me understand the importance of opening my mouth. I love the New Era and will continue reading and pondering the messages in the articles.
