December DVD

Thank you to everyone who has any part in the joy we receive each month from the Ensign and the New Era. But especially we are thankful for the insert DVD that went to every home on your subscription lists. What a wonderful gift!

How blessed is anyone who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or who receives the truth each month as we do.

Clam Chowder

Thank you for the article about clam chowder and Christmas traditions in the December 2005 Ensign. It is always inspiring to read about real-life, personal experiences that are modern-day miracles. The Lundbergs’ wonderful Christmas story demonstrates not only that Heavenly Father is present, even for the smallest details, but how family faith fosters love and hope.

Incomplete Understanding of Mental Illness

Thank you so much for your article “Myths about Mental Illness” by Elder Alexander B. Morrison in the October 2005 issue of the Ensign. As one who has experienced bouts of depression over the years, I am grateful for this clear explanation of false beliefs about mental illness among members of the Church and the offering of helpful, correct information. Some of my family members have harbored similarly incomplete understandings, which have created complications during my times of distress. I appreciate that this difficult topic was addressed in such a compassionate manner.
