For the first time, families outside of English-speaking countries will be able to subscribe to magazines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints specifically for children and youth. 

Some areas and languages will receive magazine content more frequently. And Church members worldwide will have access to the same magazines.

Beginning January 2021, the Church will replace its four current magazines with three global magazines, the First Presidency announced on Friday. Improved and expanded digital versions will also be available. 

The three global magazines will be the Friend (for children), For the Strength of Youth (for youth) and the Liahona (for adults) — retiring the Ensign title and renaming the youth magazine, which was previously the New Era.
