Each household may sign up for all three global magazines: the ‘Liahona,’ ‘For the Strength of Youth’ and the ‘Friend’.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is offering print subscriptions at no cost to its three magazines, which are currently published in 50 languages and distributed to millions of Church members worldwide.

Beginning August 1, 2023, anyone with a Church account in certain parts of the world will be able to sign up for one annual subscription (per household) to one or more of the Church’s magazines: the “Liahona” (for adults), “For the Strength of Youth” (for youth ages 12 to 18) and “Friend” (for children). The new subscription system will roll out to the rest of the world over the next several months. No-cost subscriptions will be an ongoing offer in the years to come.

“We come closer to Jesus Christ as we consistently participate in gospel study in the home,” said Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “The Church wants to give greater access to the words of the prophets, and we are excited to make the printed copies of the Church magazines available at no cost.”

The Church has published the words of living prophets and helped members understand the gospel of Jesus Christ through magazines and other periodicals since the 1830s.

In recent years, Church magazines have undergone significant changes to support members in their efforts to learn and live the gospel of Jesus Christ, and their content has been made more accessible to members worldwide. In 2021, the Church began publishing its magazines for each age group in multiple languages; they are now available in 50 languages in both print and digital formats. Additional languages are available digitally.
