    Reading through Thunderstorms

    I live where there are a lot of thunderstorms and heavy rain, which can be scary for me. Whenever a storm comes, I immediately grab the Friend magazine and begin reading it to help me feel better. I always feel the Holy Ghost when I read the Friend.

    Coconut Ice!

    Thank you for sharing the coconut ice recipe (Jan. 2019). After we read “The Ice-Candy Mission Fund,” we made some of our own popsicles. They were delicious! We had a family popsicle night and will be making them again soon!

    A Better Person

    I like reading the Friend. It makes me happy, and I can feel the Spirit in my heart. The Friend has helped me to be a better person.

    Dear Friends,

    Have you ever seen someone being left out or bullied because they looked, talked, or believed differently? On page 2 President Oaks has a message about being nice to everyone, not only to people who are like us. Then turn to page 28 to see how children have been showing kindness, like Jesus Christ did!

    We love you,

    The Friend
