    Do You Have a Story to Tell?

    The Ensign welcomes submissions that show the gospel of Jesus Christ at work in the lives of Latter-day Saints, especially articles with personal experiences and gospel insights. This month, we are especially interested in how you or others have adapted Church programs and materials to fit the needs of those with mental or emotional disabilities. We invite you to share your experience in a 500-word narrative labeled “Adapting 2” and send it by February 16.

    Send to: or Ensign Editorial, 50 E. North Temple Street, Room 2420, Salt Lake City, UT 84150-3220, USA. Include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and ward and stake (or branch and district).

    Writers’ guidelines: Visit the link in the lower-right corner of the Gospel Library page at Due to the volume of submissions, we cannot acknowledge receipt. Authors whose work is selected for publication will be notified. If you would like your manuscript, photos, art, or other material returned, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

    Using This Issue

    Teaching about meaningful worship. After reading “Teaching Children to Worship” (p. 24), talk with your children about how they feel when they behave reverently. How are your meetings different for them—and for you—when everyone participates in worship?

    Remembering President Spencer W. Kimball. After reading “Spencer W. Kimball: Man of Action” (p. 46), have you identified ways that you can become a man or woman of action? Learn more about the twelfth President of the Church by typing “Spencer W. Kimball” in the “Quick search” field of the Gospel Library. From select Gospel Library, and then click on HTML (Text) under Church Publications.

    Feeling the Holy Ghost through music. After reading “Taking Courage in the Hymns” (p. 60), consider ways you can benefit from the hymns more often. Consider memorizing the words of your favorite hymn.

    Coming in February

    Look for articles on:

    • Finding hope and strength in the gospel as the only Church member in your family.

    • Restoring peace and unity through “turning the other cheek.”

    • Choosing to follow the wisdom of God instead of the wisdom of men—even when it doesn’t seem to make sense to do so.
