One afternoon my younger sister Camilia and I were playing while my dad was mowing the lawn. We decided to help him. Even though it was very hot, we had fun working together. When we finished, we went with my dad to return the lawnmower to our elderly neighbor. When we got to her door, my dad offered to mow her lawn too. My sister and I decided to help too. While he mowed, we picked up the grass and put it in a bag. When we finished, the neighbor said, “Thank you so much, Sofia and Camilia, for cleaning my yard. You are very sweet and caring girls.” Then she gave us some candy. We went home very happy, not just because we had candy but because we had served our neighbor.

When I was younger, we would go out to play at recess. When it was time to come in, we had to line up. Each time we did, I sang “I Love to See the Temple” (Children’s Songbook, 95). One day a girl next to me said, “That song you’re singing is very pretty. Where is it from?”
I answered, “It comes from Primary. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I have faith.” After that she became my best friend!
