Welcome to Your New Liahona

Welcome! Please join us in celebrating this newly designed and written Liahona. We know you loved the old Liahona, but it was time to make some improvements.

For starters, you’ll notice that the middle of the magazine no longer has inserts inside inserts. The news and the children’s pages have been moved to the back of the magazine.

Whatever it is you want in a magazine from the Church, we think you’ll find it here. If you like longer, substantive articles, you’ll find some thought-provoking ones to choose from. But if you don’t have much time and just want to browse, you can do that too.

Throughout the issue you’ll find some new sections, clearly marked for children, youth, and young adults. If you’re new to the Church, perhaps you’ll appreciate reading insights into foundational Church doctrine and practices (see What We Believe, page 14). If you’re a teacher or a leader or a parent, you’ll find helpful hints for serving those you love (see pages 13, 22, 26, and 36).

One of the most innovative aspects of this new Liahona is a mixing of articles for adults with supplementary materials for youth and children—and vice versa. You’ll see that happening especially with the First Presidency Message.

There are other, more subtle changes. We encourage you to find them on your own as you explore this issue. All are designed to help you feel the Spirit and come to know better our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ. They are the ultimate source of inspiration for the Liahona.
