The Exact Answer

When I have a question, the New Era the next month answers my exact question. Everything in the whole issue is just for me. This has happened every month for more than a year. Thank you for including everything you do. Reading the New Era helps me be closer to Heavenly Father. Kari Avery, Johnstown Ward, Greeley Colorado Stake

Great Ideas

I’d like to thank you so much for the March 2005 Idea List: “Practically Prepared.” It has helped me become more determined to serve a mission and know how to take care of myself. I want to be able to learn all the things that my mother helps me with and does for me. I want to be able to say that I was the first person to serve a mission in my family. Thank you again for caring enough to teach us to be more Christlike. Cassie Solis, Bourbonnais Ward, Joliet Illinois Stake

Gratitude for the Atonement

The “Now There Is Hope” poster in the April 2005 New Era made me realize something. Even though what Christ had to do was almost unbearable for Him, it had to happen anyway. It had to be done for us to have a chance to return to Heavenly Father. I am glad that Jesus volunteered to atone for our sins. Liesl Coyne, North Shores Ward, Bloomfield Hills Michigan Stake

Poster Fan

I want to thank you for the New Era Posters. They bring a bigger understanding of a topic. I hear of topics over and over again, and I am bored of it, but when I see the picture, it brings new thoughts and understanding. The poster is the first thing I look for when I get the New Era. Rebecca Varner, Vista Third Ward, Vista California Stake

Sunday Paper

I love to read the New Era on Sunday mornings. It helps me get ready for the day. I seem to be happier during the day, after I read it. I have almost all of the posters enlarged and framed on my wall. My room is a better place to be, instead of having pictures of guys. I don’t know what I would do if the Church stopped printing the New Era! Lindsey Davis, Battle Creek Second Ward, Pleasant Grove Utah East Stake

Filters

I enjoyed reading the article “Internet Café” in the March 2005 issue of the New Era. I liked the way this article taught me about Internet safety. Even though many people think Internet filters are safe, some filters aren’t as good as you think. A few weeks ago at school some people pulled up inappropriate things on the “filtered” school computers. I’m glad I can protect myself on the Internet.
