A Priesthood Blessing

Isaac S., age 7, Arkansas

I thought I would have a great time during my first day at a new school, but I didn’t. Things were really different. I went home and told my mom and dad about it. My dad asked me if I would like to have a priesthood blessing. I said I would, and he gave me a blessing. The next day, I had a great day at school.

The Friend Helps Me Too

Danay B., age 13, Oregon

I read a letter in Friends by Mail in the March 2010 Friend called “The Friend Helped Me.” It reminded me that when I am mad or upset, I can go to my room and read the Friend. The Friend reminds me that I am a child of God and that He loves me.

The Friend Is My Favorite

Fisher P., age 3, Nevada

I love to read the Friend. It’s my favorite thing to do.

Keeping It Up

Jenna M., age 7, Utah

I play the piano, and sometimes I struggle with the notes. When I thought about quitting, we read the story “Keep It Up, Jenna!” in the November 2009 Friend. My name is Jenna! I feel better now about playing the piano.
