“Contents,” Ensign, Feb. 2007, 1–3
Volume 37 Number 2
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 invite you to share with us narratives about how your life is influenced by your testimony of the Savior. How do you live because you believe in Christ? Please limit submissions to 500 words, and label them “Testimony.”
Send them by March 16 to email@example.com 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 www.lds.org. 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.
Recognizing blessings. Read “Prayer of Thanks” (p. 63), and then listen to or read the words of “Count Your Blessings” (Hymns, no. 241). How do you experience the Lord’s hand in your life? How might you express more gratitude?
Replacing strife with service. Consider the story of the missionaries in “Turning the Other Cheek” (p. 48). In family home evening, identify situations in which you might ask, “What can I do for you?” Follow up the next week to find out whether the question came up, and discuss how you felt as a result.
Feeling more peace. Have you felt emotions similar to those described in “Sweet Is the Peace the Temple Brings” (p. 18)? How has attending the temple or preparing to do so strengthened you?
Look for articles on:
Forgiving “all men”—including yourself.
Preparing prospective missionaries physically and mentally.
Finding confidence in the Lord’s timeline for you—whether you’re single or married.
