There are some great articles, in this issue. One article that spoke to my heart was: Move Forward in Faith, one of my favorites quotes from this article:
“What do you do when you have prepared carefully, have prayed fervently, waited a reasonable time for a response, and still do not feel an answer? You may want to express thanks when that occurs, for it is an evidence of [Heavenly Father’s] trust. When you are living worthily and your choice is consistent with the Savior’s teachings and you ne

Favorite articles:

"No Corrupt Communication" pg. 35 - This article on sarcasm was so interesting. Its something I'm trying to eliminate in my speech so it was really helpful. The Greek root for sarcasm is sarkazein which means "to tear flesh like dogs" while the "dictionary defines sarcasm as irony designed to "give pain." Really makes you stop and think! The reader was encouraged to increase positive communication rather than falling into the trap of sarcasm.

"World Without Number" pg. 41 - Wond

I want to particularly recommend this August's Ensign articles.

What a great issue with excellent articles on receiving personal revelation: "In His Own Time, In His Own Way," "A New Writing," and "Opening Our Hearts to Revelation." Also, anyone who teaches in the Church should read: "Great Questions, Great Discussions."

I'm always behind in my Ensign reading, but I am learning the articles are just as good and inspiring when read late, so don't worry about it and read whenever you get to it!

Great issue as always. It had a good article about how to be an effective teacher, very pertinent to me. I liked the tips on studying the scriptures which I will implement in 2014.
