The New Era at Work

I took the New Era magazine with me to work to read during my break time. At one point during my shift, I went to the back to get some things from the freezer and found one of my friends flipping through my magazine while she was on break.

“This must be yours,” she said as I smiled at her.

“Yeah,” I replied. “It’s the New Era magazine I receive each month through my church.”

Later that evening, she asked if she could borrow the magazine for the night and read through it. Ever since then I have brought the New Era with me to work each month and have had quite a few friends ask me questions about my beliefs and about different principles of the gospel. I have also been able to give the friend I mentioned earlier a copy of the Book of Mormon.

I’m grateful for the chance to share the gospel in such a simple way. It has brought joy into my life.
