There are times in our lives when we have to stand up for what we believe. Some of us have done this already. Test yourself to see how you can help your friends by being the best example of a good Latter-day Saint.

1 It’s Primary day! After school a friend invites you to go home with him to play. What would you do?

  1. Forget Primary and go with your friend.

  2. Tell him you can’t and go straight to Primary.

  3. Tell him you’d like to go to his house another day, then ask him to go to Primary with you.

2 You are invited to a friend’s birthday party on Sunday. The guests will be going swimming and then to a drive-in for hamburgers. You want to go and the party hours are between Sunday School and sacrament meeting. What would you do?

  1. Send your friend a birthday gift or wish him a happy birthday. Explain that you’d like to go to the party but that you feel you should honor the Sabbath day.

  2. Tell your friend he’s breaking the Sabbath and shouldn’t have parties on Sunday.

  3. Go to the party.

3 You are with a group of friends at school. They don’t know what your religion is and make some false and misleading statements about our church. What would you do?

  1. Become embarrassed and say nothing.

  2. Tell them that you are a Latter-day Saint and that you think they may have been misinformed. Ask them if they would really like to know the truth about what Mormons believe. If your friends are interested, have your parents arrange a visit by the missionaries.

  3. Tell them that other churches have a lot of faults too.

4 Your friends have asked you to go to a movie with a PG rating. Their parents have no objections, but your parents think it is inappropriate for children. What would you do?

  1. Tell your friends that you have strict parents who won’t let you go.

  2. Tell your friends that it’s a bad movie and that their parents should know more about the movies they let their children see.

  3. Tell your friends you have heard that it is not appropriate and that you’d rather see something else. Suggest some other movies they could see.

5 You are at a party and your friends begin to tell stories and jokes that give you a bad feeling. What would you do?

  1. Listen and laugh with your friends so they’ll think you like their stories.

  2. Change the subject or think of a game that would be fun to play.

  3. Tell them you’re going to leave the room and that if they keep telling those kinds of stories, you’ll call your parents to come and get you.

What Would You Do?

If you have chosen the following answers, 1. c, 2. a, 3. b, 4. c, 5. b, you have strong convictions, know how to stand up for what you believe is right without hurting the feelings of others, and can be a good missionary by your example.
