Pray and Look Again

Skyler S., age 8, Philippines

One day my mom sent me to the store to buy some milk. I rode my bike to the store. When I got there I could not find the money she had given me. I looked for it all the way back home. I was nervous telling my mom, but she gave me a hug and told me to say a prayer and go look again. I asked Heavenly Father to help me find the money. When I went out and looked again, I found the money next to the sidewalk close to our house. I know that Heavenly Father answers prayers and shows us the way when we need help.

Hard Decision for Dad

Nora H., age 12, Nevada

I did not get baptized when I turned eight years old because my dad would not give his permission. He is not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I tried to convince him for two long years. One day I prayed to Heavenly Father to help my dad say yes soon. Dad said yes that very day! I’m so glad I am a member of the Church now.
