“Friends by Mail,” Friend, April 2018
It’s something to cheer
When life seems so blue.
It’s a safe place from my fears;
Funstuff’s in there too.
When life seems it’s broken,
I know there is hope.
You don’t need a token—
No need to mope.
Don’t worry, there’s no limit
To how old you can be.
The Friend is for everyone.
It’s for you; it’s for me.

We like to go on walks and family adventures with the Friend!
Alma, Linda, and Emily S., ages 10, 8, and 6, New York, USA
During general conference, we used art from old Friend magazines to make creative pictures.

April is a special month because we celebrate Easter. It’s also when we celebrate the Church being organized—188 years ago! On page 24 you can learn what that means to us today. Then you can read about a boy who got a priesthood blessing (page 8) and learn how we can all help the work of the priesthood (pages 32–34). We hope you’ll also like the new song, on page 11!
