“The PIONEER magazines are really super and we enjoy reading them from cover to cover. I’ve shared many of the articles with others. Thanks again for producing such a great magazine.” — Merle J. Eggett, Aubrey, Texas

“Last week we took a short trip to Las Vegas to see the Old Mormon Fort State Park. On our way home, we drove through St. George and stopped at the Deseret Book there, where I found your magazine on the same display as the Ensign.  I am thrilled with it, and knew that I would want future editions. This magazine is of superior quality.  Many thanks to all who contributed!” — MaryAnn Williams, Smithfield, Utah

“The magazine is beautifully structured, and written with such obvious devotion, I can never postpone reading it. I come from my reading delighted, edified and filled with gratitude for heritage.” — Anne Okerlund Leavitt, Cedar City, Utah
