Cover: Christ and Mary at the Tomb, by Joseph Brickey

Inside front cover: Bless Them in His Name, by Walter Rane. Babies are given a priesthood blessing for the special purpose of having their name conferred upon them. Then the Melchizedek Priesthood holder giving the blessing bestows promises as directed by the spiritual impressions he receives.

Inside back cover: A Test of Faith and Ice, by Larry Winborg. In February 1846 a snowstorm in Nauvoo was followed by falling temperatures that, in a rare occurrence, left the Mississippi River frozen over. Though Latter-day Saints had been crossing by ferry, hundreds now hastened to cross the wide river while it was frozen.
