I love reading the New Era. It is always cool that I can find something useful in there, and something that applies to me. I really like the special issues—for example, the October 2004 issue on eternal marriage. I think it would be good if there could be one on education. Kinga W., New Zealand
I was interested in the article “The Perfect Comeback” (Apr. 2006) because I have sometimes been in a situation where someone picks on another person, and I felt like I needed to do something. This article shows how other people in the same situations have done the right thing, and it makes me want to do right. I thank you for putting this article in your magazine. Joseph A., California
Modesty for Guys
I would like to thank you for putting articles in your magazine regarding modesty and dating. However, I feel that you are too lenient on the guys. I would appreciate it if there were articles on dating and modesty that included that a guy should also dress modestly. We shouldn’t have to avert our eyes because of the way they dress, either. I would like an article about how modesty and grooming for guys affects young women. Kourtney W., Texas
I just wanted to thank you for the article “Time to Listen.” Jeremy Pownall is a good example to a 13-year-old boy like me. He has goals for his future and is a good example to other people. He is willing to give up body-boarding to serve a mission. He is willing to listen to those a few years ahead of him in life and take their advice. I like to hear stories about other LDS young men. It helps me to focus on my goal of serving a mission and being a good example to those around me. It also helps me focus on keeping myself worthy and not following the crowd. Jeremy P., Utah
Wanted to Read More
I enjoyed reading the July 2006 New Era very much. For our fifth Sunday of July we were all in class together and played a quiz game with the July New Era stories. The stories were very appealing to me; there was a feeling of spirituality because it was the first time I really read the whole magazine. One story I really liked was “Do You Want to Copy My Homework?” It was about principles and self-control to do the right thing. When I was done, I wanted to read more! Eric G., Texas
