Using This Issue

Celebrate Easter. President Gordon B. Hinckley taught that “There would be no Christmas if there were no Easter” (see “The Things of Which I Know,” Ensign, May 2007, 84). As you review pp. 40–62, think about ways in which the Savior’s Atonement and Resurrection blesses your life.

Teach with the Spirit. The articles on p. 4 and p. 10 both discuss powerful teaching. How can you improve your ability to teach by the power of the Holy Ghost in your home, in callings, and in sharing the gospel? Teaching: No Greater Call (available at under Serving in the Church > Sunday School > Teacher Improvement) offers additional helps.

Pursue education. This issue contains several articles on the importance of education (see pp. 14–35). What can you be doing now to pursue additional education, formally or informally? How can you encourage others to take advantage of their opportunities? See and the employment section on for ideas and resources.
