“Comment,” Liahona, Aug. 2012, 77
When I was about 13 years old, I lived with my grandmother. One day I found some abandoned magazines and began to read them. They contained stories from people all over the world, telling of miracles that had happened in their lives. These magazines were the Liahona; my aunt, who was a member of the Church, had left the magazines in my grandmother’s house.
The stories captivated me, and I felt something special telling me they were true. A year later I was baptized, and since then I have had my own subscription. The magazine has been a guide and a blessing. To me it is proof that God loves us and continues to reveal His secrets unto His servants the prophets (see Amos 3:7).

I love reading the Liahona magazine—it helps me both temporally and spiritually. It strengthens my faith, enhances my talents and abilities, and cleanses my mind and thoughts through the uplifting counsel of members of the Church and our living prophets.
