    WOW! You guys sent us a TON of ideas for helping our friend Audrey after her baptism. And many of you had the same great ideas.

    Every new member needs friends so they won’t feel lost or alone.

    “It would be hard for Audrey to be alone in church, so offer her a ride and sit by her during church.”

    Sadie S., age 8, Washington, USA

    “Invite Audrey and her mom to sit with your family in sacrament meeting.”

    Julian M., age 6, Utah, USA

    New members are still learning about Church standards like keeping the Sabbath day holy.

    “Invite Audrey and her family over for Sunday dinner. Share a spiritual thought or maybe a nice Sunday activity like family history.”

    Landry T., age 11, Texas, USA

    “Help Audrey find the right kinds of clothes to wear for church.”

    Mark D., age 7, Utah, USA

    Lots of things are new to people who have just joined the Church, things we take for granted.

    “When Audrey goes to Primary, make sure she understands everything.”

    Maren R., age 10, Iowa, USA

    “There are a lot of scripture stories Audrey needs to know. Help her by sharing your favorite scripture heroes.”

    Cameron G., age 7, Utah, USA

    Lots and lots of you reminded us to pray for Audrey.

    And to help her by making sure she has her own copy of the scriptures and by inviting her to read them with us.

    Thanks, everyone! These are good reminders for all of us.
