Shine Your Light!

Thanks for sending in your stars this year! You made the world a better, brighter place.

Light the World

We used the “Light the World” stars in the Friend (Dec. 2017) to make ornaments for our Christmas-tree poster. It helped us follow Jesus all month. We love the Friend magazine!

Using the Friend Every Day

We completed a couple of advent calendars from the Friend magazine, plus the Restoration reading challenge. We put up the CTR challenges and “Light the World” on the wall to remind us to do it every day. It helps our family learn more about the Savior.

Dear Friends,

We’ve been excited to get your beautiful stars in the mail this year. Each one has shown the love you have for the Savior and how you are letting His light shine through you. Your stars are like a gift for Him! Turn to page 12 to find the story of two brothers from Ghana who shared the Savior’s light this year.

Merry Christmas!

The Friend
