    Looking toward the Future

    This month’s New Era has the following articles about looking toward the future:

    • “Look Forward to the Future with Faith.” President Russell M. Nelson talks about how the Church is moving forward now, as well as how each of us can move forward on the covenant path (page 2).

    • “Will Relief Society Be Boring?” A young woman describes going to Relief Society for the first time (page 6).

    • “My First Day in Elders Quorum.” A young man describes going to elders quorum for the first time (page 8).

    • “Helps for Being Your Happiest and Best Self.” Elder J. Devn Cornish of the Seventy counsels youth on how to avoid future heartache (page 12).

    Talk with Them

    Here are some questions you might ask:

    • How do you think what you’re doing now will relate to what you’ll be doing a few years from now?

    • When you think about the changes ahead for you, what does it make you want to do more of now?

    • Even though certain changes are inevitable, what are the things that you should try to always keep in your life?

    Teach Them

    In family home evening or other teaching settings, consider using something you saw in the New Era. For instance:

    • Share your own experience of going to Relief Society or elders quorum for the first time and what you learned about facing change with faith.

    • Talk about the person who was President of the Church when you were younger and how you felt when he passed away. Then bear your testimony of how the Lord leads His Church through prophets and apostles.
