Learning the Articles of Faith

Charity P., age 7, Texas, with help from her mom

When I first thought about learning the Articles of Faith, I knew it might be hard. My mother told me I could do it and encouraged me to try. I practiced, and I also prayed for help from Heavenly Father. So far, I have learned six articles of faith. I am going to learn them all. I know that Heavenly Father and my family are helping me.

Thanks for the Friend

Joseph A., age 12, Utah

I would like to express my gratitude to the Friend staff and the many children who write spiritual stories that appear in the magazine. I have a lot of fun reading the Friend when it comes to my home. I love every spiritual story. I recently became a deacon, but I still try to read the Friend as often as I can. Thank you for putting so many good things in the magazine.

Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy

Brynn B., age 6, Arizona

One Sunday two of my good friends knocked on my door and invited me to come outside and play. I wanted to, but I told them that I could not because it was Sunday. I felt glad to keep the Sabbath day holy.
