    For example

    I really enjoyed your story “The Book in the Bag” in the January 1997 issue. It was a reminder to me of the importance of setting a good example. Living in a small town and being the only member of the Church at my high school, I sometimes forget how important my example is to my peers. If they see me choose the right, I feel that I’ve accomplished the task of being a good representative of my church. Lives can be changed by example, and your story helped to remind me of that.

    I thought I’d write to express how grateful I am for your awesome magazine. I totally love it. I read it the day I get it and end up waiting a month to get the next one. I’m also a huge Mormonad lover. At home I have more than 250 of them on the walls of my room, starting with Mormonads from 1974. I have used them as great missionary tools.

    A little reminder

    I’d just like to say thank you so much for putting the mini-Mormonad posters in the New Era. I have a little stand in my room, and each week I put up a different Mormonad to look at. They remind me to do what they say.

    Catchy thoughts

    I just want to thank you for the Mormonads which you publish in each issue of the New Era. I love them. I have cut them out of each issue and put them on my bedroom door so I can see them each day. The catchy thoughts stay with me and come in very handy when I am faced with various situations. My favorite Mormonad has a picture of Jesus Christ on it that says “You Are Never Alone” (April 1994). This Mormonad reminds me every time I see it that Jesus is always with me and helping me with whatever problem I may be facing.

    Hardly easy

    The story that really touched me was “Time Balm” (Jan. 1997). I could especially relate to that story because I recently filled out my missionary papers. I felt as if the story had been written for me. It is easy to fill out your mission papers, but it is a little hard to deal with the problems or concerns that come after receiving your mission call. I am so thankful for the gospel, for that story, and for the great job you do with the New Era.

    Useful

    Recently my companion and I had been out tracting in some very cold weather. We weren’t having any success, and it was extremely discouraging. When we came home for lunch, I picked up the February 1997 issue and read “What’s the Use?” I felt much like the elder in the story. Serving a mission isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do. But when I read Alma’s words, it gave me so much hope and courage to work harder and endure while I’m serving the Lord.
