Show and Tell


At school I made an awesome football field out of clay. My friend accidentally knocked it over and broke it. I was very sad. My friend also made a football field, so my teacher asked him to give me his. He had been so excited to show his parents that I said, “No, you can keep it.” He said he was sorry, and I forgave him. It made me feel good to forgive because that’s what Jesus would want me to do.

I am looking forward to getting baptized. I am trying to choose the right. Some things I do are send pictures to my grandma on her mission, read to my little sisters, and clean up. I also try to set a good example for my school friends. One time on the bus, my friend was saying bad words. I knew he was doing the wrong thing, so I asked him to stop. He did.

One day I was playing on the computer, and a bad picture came on the screen. I had a bad feeling inside. I called my mom to come to the computer to help me change to a different game. I felt good knowing I was following Jesus Christ.

Prayer

We pray to Heavenly Father.
It’s very simple, you see.
You bow your head and close your eyes
And fold your arms like me.
That is how you start a prayer.
It isn’t hard to do.
The more you pray, the more you’ll know
God watches over you.

Benjamin, David, Andrew, and Rebecca S., ages 4, 8, 2, and 6, Florida, USA, are excited that a new temple is being built an hour from their home. Each Sunday, they bring their scriptures to Primary and the Primary presidency adds a penny to a jar for each set of scriptures. When the jar is full, the pennies will be donated to building the temple. They love the temple and know their family can be together forever because of temples.
