    Service Blanket

    I read in the Friend how to serve by making a tie blanket (Jan. 2017). I decided to donate my quilt to a family in our small town that was affected by flooding.

    Abuelo’s Shoe Shop

    Thank you for the story “Abuelo’s Shoe Shop” and activity (March 2018). We made our own shoes and wrote ways that we could follow Jesus, while we watched the “Come, Follow Me” sing-along video on It was a super-fun family home evening!

    Dear Friends,

    Being baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost is like walking through a gate on the path back to Heavenly Father. Maybe you’ve already been baptized, or you might still be looking forward to that special day. This month’s magazine has lots of stories and activities for you about baptism and the Holy Ghost. What is special to you about being baptized?
