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 invite you to describe how you make Easter a Christ-centered season.

Limit submissions to 500 words, and label them “Easter.” Send them by April 13 to ensign@ldschurch.org 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.

Using This Issue

Trusting the hand of the Lord. Think about an event in your life that didn’t happen as you thought it would—or when you thought it would. Read “Having Faith in God’s Timeline” (p. 22), and consider times you have recognized the hand of the Lord in your life.

Being self-reliant in emergencies. After reading “Storming Back” (p. 46), think about emergencies you might face. Go to the Food Storage and Preparedness link on www.providentliving.org, and click on Emergency Preparation to learn how you might be more self-reliant in an emergency.

Preparing for missionary work. After reading “Missionary Health Preparation” (p. 62), discuss the reasons that physical and mental preparation for missionary service are just as vital as spiritual preparation. In family home evening, talk about ways your family might make these kinds of preparations.

Coming in April

Look for articles on:

  • How feeling joy and feeling the Holy Ghost are interrelated.

  • One woman’s decision to place motherhood before her career.

  • The power of example.
