Every day we make many choices in our lives. With every decision, we must decide either to choose the right and follow Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ or to choose the wrong and make bad decisions that will lead us away from Heavenly Father. Follow the maze below. When you come to a fork in the maze, read both choices and decide which one to make. Choosing the right will eventually lead you to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, while making bad choices will lead you to dead ends and unhappiness.

Say my prayers Don’t say prayers Don’t receive Heavenly Father’s help throughout the day. Be kind to new classmate at recess Make fun of new classmate at recess You miss the chance to make a new friend. Offer to share your lunch with a friend who has forgotten his lunch Keep all of your food for yourself Your friend is hungry, you don’t get the blessings that come from sharing. Decide not to cheat on your math test, but to do your best Decide to copy your neighbor’s math answers Your teacher catches you cheating. You get the failing grade you deserve and lose self-respect. Help your mom with the new baby after school Run off and play with your friends, even though you know your mom needs help Your mom is disappointed in you; you lose self-respect. Trying my best to keep the commandments every day Being selfish and not choosing the right every day Unhappiness and misery (see Alma 41:10) Return to Heavenly Father and Jesus
