A Special Message to Youth

This month’s New Era comes with the messages from the special worldwide devotional for youth by President Russell M. Nelson and his wife, Wendy Nelson, in June.

Sharing the Gospel

In addition, the August issue features articles about sharing the gospel:

Talk with Them

Here are some questions you might ask:

  • Why do you think President Nelson wanted to share that particular message with you?

  • When you heard President Nelson’s message, what did it make you want to do differently?

  • How confident do you feel about sharing the gospel? What could help you feel more confident?

Teach Them

In family home evening or other teaching settings, consider using something you saw in the New Era. For instance:

  • Read “Two Strokes for Integrity” (page 18), and share how you made a decision to be honest and upright even when nobody else was watching.

  • Read “Our Plan to Beat the Odds” (page 10), and share your feelings about the blessings of eternal marriage.

  • Read “Lock-Screen Scriptures” (page 7), and talk about some other things we can do to keep our minds focused on spiritual things each day.
