I like going to church with my family and learning about Jesus Christ. At home I like reading and learning scripture stories, singing hymns, and playing games at family home evening. The gospel blesses my family and makes me feel happy. I have already given a Book of Mormon to three schoolteachers and to my best friend, Miguel. My favorite Primary song is “We’ll Bring the World His Truth.”

My parents have taught me the gospel and have been good examples to me since I was little. I learned to read the scripture stories for children, and now I love the Book of Mormon. I read it every day, alone and with my family. Ammon is my favorite person in the Book of Mormon. He was a great missionary, which is what I want to be when I am older.

One day during my school choir practice, I accidentally embarrassed a boy. He sang a note by himself and went out of tune. People started laughing, and I laughed too. Afterward I felt really bad, so I asked my mom for help. She told me I should tell him I was sorry. I handwrote an apology letter and handed it to him during recess. About a day or so later, when I was walking down the hallway with my friends, the boy stuck his head out of his classroom and yelled, “I forgive you!” I’m glad I had the courage to make the right choice.

In art class, we shaped clay into cups. Then we fired and painted the cups and turned some artwork into placemats. After the cups were done, our teacher had a tea ceremony, and he served tea. Even though the rest of the class had tea, I didn’t have even one tiny drip. The best feeling of all was obeying the Lord.

Heavenly Father is my Friend.
He will love and help me to the end.
Sometimes I fail to do what’s right,
I argue and complain and leave His sight.
Then He picks me up and puts me back
On the path to fix that crack
In my character. Christ is in charge.
I’ll leave it to Him ‘cause His love is large.
