A Birthday Gift for President Monson

I thought that this was a great idea and a great opportunity for our children to be a part of President Monson's Birthday. Of course it is a great idea for us adults as well. What gift could you give President Monson for his birthday this year?

A Birthday Gift for President Thomas S. Monson

In his conference talk, Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said: “When our beloved prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, was asked on his birthday this past August what would be the ideal gift that members worldwide could give him, he said without a moment’s hesitation, ‘Find someone who is having a hard time, … and do something for them.’1

Children, would you like to give President Monson a birthday present? Think of an act of ser-vice you could do for someone. Maybe your grandpa needs help around the house. Or perhaps that new boy at school needs a friend. There are many people who need help, and many kind children to help them! Tell us about your act of service, and then read about many others in the August 2009 Liahona and Friend—President Monson’s birthday month!

Please e-mail your letter, photo, and permission to or to

Or send your letter, photo, and permission to:
Birthday Service Friend [or Liahona] Magazine 50 E. North Temple St., Rm. 2420 Salt Lake City, UT 84150-0024, USA

The following information and permission must be included:
Full Name
State/Province, Country
I grant permission to print submission and photo:
Signature of parent or legal guardian

Please respond by December 15, 2008. Children whose letters are submitted should be at least three years old.

If every member gave this gift to President Monson this year for his birthday a great ammount of service would be done. So go and “Do something for someone else on that day to make his or her life better. Find someone who is having a hard time, or is ill, or lonely, and do something for them. That’s all I would ask.”

I think gift should be useful that the couple may use it through out their life. We can gift them ornaments, Rockeries,decorative things, paintings and many more. Anyway,you have a very nice gift idea.
