Trying to Be Like Jesus


Treats for Everyone

Damon D., age 6, Utah

When I was getting ready for Valentine’s Day in my school class, my mom asked me what treats I wanted to take to my classmates. I thought for a moment and then said, “A boy in my class is allergic to a lot of things, but he can eat one kind of candy. I want to take that kind.” I try to be like Jesus when I am thoughtful and kind toward others.

A New Friend

Kennedy C., age 5, Japan

When my family moved to Japan, it was scary moving to a new place and making new friends. On my first day of kindergarten we were doing an art project. We had to trace our hands on paper. I noticed that a boy at my table was having a hard time tracing his hand. I wanted to help him, but I was nervous. Then I remembered that in family scripture study we had been talking about how Jesus loved and served others. I helped the boy trace his hand. It made him happy, and I felt happy too. Heavenly Father blessed me to not be nervous and helped me make a new friend too!

Sunday Choice

Spencer S., age 7, Illinois

Once it was my friend’s birthday on Sunday. I was sad because I never get to go to my school friends’ birthday parties that are on Sunday. I really wanted to go, but I knew I should keep the Sabbath day holy. I didn’t go to the party, and I felt good inside.
