“Contents,” Ensign, Sept. 2007, 1–3
Volume 37, Number 9
The Ensign invites women to share experiences in making the transition—or helping someone else make the transition—from the Young Women program to Relief Society. What have you learned? Please label your submission “Joining Relief Society” and send it by October 19.
We also welcome other submissions that show the gospel of Jesus Christ at work in your life. Ensign Magazine Writers’ Guidelines are posted at http://ensign.lds.org under Resources.
Send submissions 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, ward (or branch), and stake (or district). Because of 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.
Finding humor. In “The Power of Laughter” (p. 32), Gary K. Palmer points out that humor is “an attitude, not an event.” How are your family relationships different when you use humor in your home? Together, you might want to remember funny moments you’ve shared or discuss ways you can find humor in everyday situations.
Using agency. After reading “Priesthood, Agency, and Black Powder” (p. 56), list some of the “black powder” we face today. Share with a friend or family member your thoughts about how the gospel helps you avoid these dangers.
Managing your resources. This month’s issue contains several helps for financial management (see p. 36 and p. 40 and the insert on family finances). To find additional information and tools to help you better manage your finances, including online financial calculators, visit www.providentliving.org and click on Family Finances.
