“Contents,” Ensign, Apr. 2007, 1–3
Volume 37 Number 4
The Ensign welcomes submissions that show the gospel of Jesus Christ at work in the lives of Latter-day Saints. This month we invite you to share what you have learned about the spiritual and physical benefits of living the Word of Wisdom. How have you been blessed by eating right, exercising, and taking care of your body?
Please label submissions “Word of Wisdom” and send them by May 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org or Ensign Editorial, 50 E. North Temple St., Rm. 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: Information about publication criteria is located online. From www.lds.org, select “Gospel Library,” then “Magazines,” then “Ensign.” Under “Resources,” click on Ensign Magazine Writers’ Guidelines. 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.
Expanding family history research. After reading about descendancy research (p. 44), visit www.familysearch.org and click on the Search tab. Resources listed in the left navigation pane of this page are useful in ancestry research; they also provide information to help find descendants in other branches of your family.
Teaching through living. Several articles in this month’s issue deal with the power of example. In the last paragraph on page 64, Elder Bruce L. Hafen pleads with members to introduce someone to the Church. Prayerfully consider ways you might share your beliefs with someone you know, keeping in mind the power of example.
Carrying others’ burdens. Read “The Letter I Didn’t Receive” (p. 54), and reflect on a time you have been genuinely comforted by someone who was willing to share your pain. Consider various ways to “mourn with those that mourn” when you encounter someone who is suffering (Mosiah 18:9).
