“What’s New in the Friend,” Ensign, January 2016, 72–73
Are you looking for ways to help children feel the Spirit and grow in the gospel? The Friend (the Church’s magazine for children) just got even more helpful!
Flip the Friend upside down to read the Friend Junior, beginning from the back cover. It’s a brand-new section just for pre- and early readers. Check out “For Parents of Little Ones,” a page of teaching tips on a variety of topics.
Make this life-changing book a part of your children’s lives. To help with that, you’ll find a new Book of Mormon hero card, reading chart coloring page, and simplified Book of Mormon story each month in the magazine.
Children can help plan family night! Each month, look for “Family Night Fun” to find an activity, recipe, and other easy family home evening ideas based on stories out of “their” magazine.
Every issue of the Friend has support for the monthly sharing time theme and Primary lessons. Just look in the table of contents for the diamond-shaped “Primary Connection” icon.
