To help children better understand the covenant of baptism and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, a special Baptism and Confirmation issue of the Friend magazine is now available.
This new resource was created for parents, children, leaders, Primary teachers, and missionaries. It includes stories, activities, and learning resources that help children prepare for baptism and confirmation and strengthen them along the covenant path.
Leaders and Primary teachers are encouraged to help families access this resource digitally or in print and may consider ordering copies at store.ChurchofJesusChrist.org for children who attend church without a parent or guardian, new members, and people in their unit being taught by missionaries (see General Handbook, 38.8.7).
