Baptism and Confirmation Special Edition Friend Magazine


Did anyone else notice that the August 2023 Friend magazine is a special edition?  It’s completely focused on baptism and confirmation which is a really great resource for Primary children getting baptized!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Baptism & Confirmation special edition friend magazine singing time ideas

This Baptism and Confirmation special edition Friend magazine is similar to the October 2010 Ensign & Liahona Temples special edition.

Find more details on this special edition on the Church’s website.  Or download and print the PDF. I love the inside cover message from the First Presidency:

We hope you will enjoy this special issue of the Friend. It is all about being baptized and confirmed.

If you have just been baptized, we welcome you as a new member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

When you are baptized, you are following the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ. You promise to remember the Savior and keep His commandments. These promises are called covenants. When you are confirmed, you receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost can comfort, guide, and inspire you throughout your life.

If you have already been baptized, we encourage you to remember the covenant you made at baptism and try to follow Jesus every day.

If you haven’t been baptized yet, we hope you will prepare by learning more about this important step.

We are so very proud of each of you. We know that Heavenly Father is watching over you. He loves you very much, and so do we.

The First Presidency
