I wrote various blurbs while at the Ensign. For this issue, I wrote a family activity idea to go with “Loving Those Who Have Gone before Us” as well as teasers for these articles:

  • “Loving Those Who Have Gone Before Us”
  • “Fulfilling Our Eternal Destiny”
  • “Changing Our Hearts Through Charity”
  • “Called to Rescue”
