A Message from the First Presidency

Our dear young brothers and sisters,

We are grateful to introduce you to this new magazine for youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: For the Strength of Youth. We are thankful for your goodness and strength as the youth of the Church today. You truly are the hope of Israel. It is our sincere desire that this new publication will help you remain strong and close to your Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Lord has a great work for you and your generation. To help you, this magazine will provide timely teachings of modern prophets and apostles, who love you. As you study the scriptures using the Church’s Come, Follow Me resources for living and learning the gospel of Jesus Christ, you can also look to this magazine for additional knowledge, insights, and inspiration.

For the first time, this separate publication just for youth is available in different countries and languages. We hope this will bring a spirit of worldwide belonging and unity and that you will gain strength from testimonies and experiences shared by other youth from throughout the world.

The name of this magazine reflects our confidence in your strength as the youth of the Church. We testify that true joy comes through our faith in Jesus Christ, His gospel, and His restored Church.
