I was very scared to do a dance recital. It was my first time on stage. My mommy told me to say a prayer. The prayer made me happy and not scared anymore.
Sophia S., age 7, Maine, USA
When I was six, I got stung sixteen times by a swarm of bees while I was climbing a tree. My mom had to carry me home. At the time, my mom’s friend was visiting us. She was a nurse, and she was able to take care of me. I know that the Lord always provides a way for us to be taken care of, just like when I was taken care of by my mom’s friend.
Layne C., age 7, North Carolina, USA
For a class project, we had to choose a famous person and read a book about him or her. I chose Joseph Smith. I prepared and memorized a short speech telling about him and why he was famous. One day, all the parents were invited to see our presentations. Not many people at my school know about the Prophet Joseph Smith or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That day many people thanked me and told me they learned a lot.
Benson S., age 8, Michigan, USA
During recess, my friends asked me to swear. It was hard to say no because they’re my friends, and I wondered if they would tease me. But I still said no because I knew it wasn’t right. When I was eight, I was baptized, and I made promises to Heavenly Father to be obedient. When we obey the commandments, we are following Jesus. I know next time it will be easier to choose the right because I’ve done the right thing already.
