Though we may walk different paths, speak different languages, and experience different trials, we can find unity in our love for and desire to be like the Savior.

The Wisdom of God

Countless voices battle for our attention day in and day out. It’s no surprise, then, that Paul asked, “Where is the wise?” (1 Corinthians 1:20). Regardless of the direction we seek, the Lord can share His wisdom with us through the gift of the Holy Ghost.


  • Seek Ye Out of the Best Books.” In this general conference address, Elder Ian S. Ardern of the Seventy discusses the Lord’s command to Joseph Smith to seek “out of the best books words of wisdom” (Doctrine and Covenants 88:118).

  • Uncommon Sense: How Christ’s Teachings Changed Everything.” In this Ensign article, Hank R. Smith explains that the Savior’s teachings were unconventional and that “many people today still see His teachings as foolish. But in truth, the opposite is true.”

  • Real-Life Education.” In this New Era article, President Henry B. Eyring discusses why our education matters—now and in the eternities.

  • Multiplication Master.” In this illustrated story from the Friend, Luca learns that he can’t just pray for answers to his school test—he also has to study.


1 Corinthians 6:13–20

The Body Is Sacred

Paul taught that we should think of our bodies as temples of the Holy Ghost (see 1 Corinthians 6:19). The Friend, New Era, and Ensign magazines for August 2019 all have articles and activities related to the subject of the body, including those listed below.



  • Your Body Is a Temple.” Use this game from the Friend to help family members understand how our bodies are like temples.
