Too Busy to Care

I liked the article “Too Busy to Care” (June 2007) because it made me realize that chores are actually teaching me responsibility. It’s easier to listen and do what I’m supposed to than suffer a bad consequence. I know that I am not always as responsible as I should be, and from now on I will be willing to listen closer to my parents and do the chores they want me to do.

I Feel Happy Inside

I really enjoy getting your magazine each month. I like the stories about the families and people who have musical talents. I like reading “Extra Smile” with my younger brothers and sisters. Whenever I read the New Era I feel happy inside and feel the Spirit.

It Taught Me a Lesson

I liked the article “Where Will It Lead?” from the August 2007 issue. It taught me a great lesson. I know that our choices will bring either good results or bad results. I love to read the New Era because when I read it, I learn new things. When it first arrives, I run and get it. I feel the Spirit guide me, and it helps me to walk in the right way.

Think the Best

I wanted to say thank you for the article “Let Virtue Garnish Thy Thoughts Unceasingly” by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland in the October 2007 issue. I was very interested in the story about the returned missionary who bore his testimony about staying worthy to use his priesthood. I have just been ordained a teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood, and I know that it is up to me to make the right decisions and to do what is right to be worthy to do my home teaching, help with the sacrament, and go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead.

Zack Clark

I listened online to Zack Clark (featured in the Aug. 07 issue). It is a beautiful interpretation. He plays the cello very well. He serves others by means of the talent he has developed, and now on his mission, I am sure he will bless many souls. Gracias!

Missionary Issue

Thank you for the March 2007 missionary preparation issue. I really enjoyed it, and it has really helped me get ready for my mission. It has inspired me to help the elders in my ward much more. I am now very excited about serving a mission. I know it’s the right thing to do. I already love doing the work here, so a mission will be brilliant. Thanks again.
