“Comment,” Ensign, Apr. 2004, 79


He Was Teaching Me Directly

I want to thank the Ensign and Elder Henry B. Eyring for his article in the February 2004 issue. He must be a wonderful teacher because I learned so much from “The Book of Mormon Will Change Your Life.” I felt that he was teaching me directly. I am a recent convert to the Church, and what he said meant a lot to me.

“Joy in the Journey”

Since my baptism in 1969 I have read every issue of the Church’s magazines, but no article has impressed or uplifted me as much as “Joy in the Journey” (Ensign, January 2004). The fulfillment of the dream of temple marriage, the acknowledgement that we don’t have the wisdom to succeed in life without the Lord’s help, the understanding that “obedience is happiness,” the knowledge that “ordinary men and boys can bring such blessings into the lives of others in the Savior’s name” through the priesthood, and the “blessing and honor it is to be a Latter-day Saint” are just a few of the article’s gems of wisdom and inspiration that truly touched my heart and strengthened my soul.
