By the time you receive this issue of Compass Check, spring will have likely sprung where you live! It’s a wonderful time that I look forward to each year as we put the cold, snow and gray skies of winter behind us. While each season has its own beauty, there’s something about spring that is so uplifting.

Of course, this isn’t a random thing. God’s calendar begins in the spring (in the Northern Hemisphere where Israel is), and we’ll soon be celebrating the spring Holy Days. Have you begun to think about them yet? If not, this issue contains an article to help you do so.

And of course, not long after Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, summer camp season will be here. Have you thought about applying yet? If not, check out the graphic on page 10 to remind you of seven great reasons to go to camp this year!

Camp is such a wonderful blessing we have in the Church today. But back when some of us were your age, camps didn’t exist or were only a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A first-time author for Compass Check shares his experience growing up in church, and some of the challenges he encountered as a young adult and trying to put into practice as an adult what he learned in his youth.

This issue also tackles the topics of politics, economics and Jesus Christ. Just exactly what were His views? And when it comes to views, how should young men envision what it means to be an adults? Finally, we have our second installment of our career profile series: Notes on the Way. In this edition, you’ll hear how one young adult found a fulfilling job that didn’t necessarily fit her career profile.

Wherever you are, I hope you have a wonderful Holy Day season and I look forward to seeing many of you at camp this summer!
