“Comment,” Liahona, June 1997, 1


A Holiday

I am 15 years old, and I live in Russia. The days we receive the Liahona (Russian) are like a holiday to me! I can’t explain how thankful I am that the Church publishes a magazine in Russian and many other languages.

Heavenly Father has shown me such great love in the two years since my baptism and confirmation. How blessed I will be as I live righteously and continue on the path to eternal life with him!

Spiritual Guide

I am very grateful to have L’Etoile (French) in my life today. I find in it the spiritual guidance I need. When I read it, I feel Christ’s love, and I marvel at each inspired message and at the testimonies shared by our brothers and sisters throughout the world.

L’Etoile is a source of inspiration for me and my family. I know with certainty that if we will put into practice all of the directives and counsel we find in it, we will draw closer to our Heavenly Father.

A Compass

I am very thankful to my Heavenly Father for allowing me to find the gospel so early in life. I am 16 years old and live in Colombia. I am thankful for the Liahona (Spanish); it has brought many blessings into my life. It truly is a compass that guides our lives.

The December issue was very beautiful, and it filled my heart with joy. I was able to share it with my family and friends.

Something Was Missing

After kneeling in prayer one Tuesday morning and then beginning that day’s work, I felt dissatisfied, knowing that something was missing. It was then that I thought of the Liahona (Spanish). I went to the mailbox and found the new issue there. I am thankful for Heavenly Father’s love and for his concern for my spiritual progress.

A Liahona

As in the time of Lehi and his family, the Liahona (Spanish) guides our lives, the lives of our youth, and the lives of our children in a very remarkable way. Month after month, we learn from the First Presidency Messages, from the Mormon Messages, and from others’ personal experiences.
