Church News: About the cover

Youth today are encouraged to keep their lives pure, seek the Lord's Spirit, maintain self-respect and be a good influence on their friends and families. On the cover, from left, Tyler Nay, Eric Maugham, Haylee Staffanson, Stephanie Todd and Rindy McDonald, all members of the Monticello Ward, Kaysville Utah South Stake, enjoy each other's company as they build a snow sculpture.

President Hinckley has called today's young people "the greatest in the history of the Church." Articles in this issue, pages 11-13, deal with strengthening youth, who can seek guidance from the scriptures, Church leaders, seminary and each other.
