Using This Issue

Prepare for and participate in temple worship. This issue is replete with articles about the power of the temple in members’ lives (see pages 12, 46, 50, and 52). What key principles and doctrines can you identify in these articles? You might consider making these doctrines part of your personal study to enhance your temple preparation or worship.

Minister and administer. Two articles in this issue talk about the importance of ministering to each other’s needs (see pages 30 and 34). In what ways have you been ministered to? In what ways can you be a shepherd to other people?

Use gospel art. The Gospel Art Book, newly available from Distribution Services (www.ldscatalog.com), can enhance your teaching in the home and Church. (See page 28 for ideas.) You can find the same art online at gospelart.lds.org.
