Helping Children to Be Happy

I very much like to read the Liahona, especially The Friend. I think it has good messages and helps children to be happy.

Greater Faith through Visiting Teaching

I am grateful for a living prophet who receives continuing revelation from Heavenly Father. I am also grateful for the Liahona, which brings us instructions from the prophet and the General Authorities and helps us gain gospel knowledge.

I am grateful for the Visiting Teaching Message each month. When we present the message and ask the sisters to share their thoughts with us, their testimonies increase my faith. These inspired messages can strengthen the faith of all sisters.

Mirrors in Our Lives

I very much appreciate the messages from the First Presidency, which we share as home teachers. I know each message is inspired of God. We can learn from them and use them as mirrors in our lives. We can see ourselves reflected in them and find positive things we can learn and apply.

The Lord’s Timing

Planning is very important. I never want to change my plans. But the article “Timing,” by Elder Dallin H. Oaks in the October 2003 Liahona, helped me to understand that next to my calendar is the Lord’s calendar, which is more important than mine. I know that in subscribing to the Liahona, I will have more chances to learn about the plan and will of the Lord.
