My Family

In my family are my mother and father, me, one younger brother, and one younger sister. I love them very much. My favorite thing is when my father takes us out for fun. Every morning my father makes pancakes for me, then takes me to school. I also cook fried eggs for my mother. I am grateful that my father has taught me how to cook. I hope my family can be together forever. I want to study the scriptures, pray every day, and keep the commandments so I can meet that goal.

A Lifeboat for My Mother

I am the oldest of four children. I love to help my mother with the little ones, who are ages 4, 2, and 11 months old. I sing Primary songs to them. The one they like best is “I Am a Child of God.”

My mother says that I am her “lifeboat.” I am very happy when she tells me that, because she does everything for my siblings and me. Knowing that I can help makes me feel closer to the Spirit.

Family home evenings at our house are marvelous. They help us feel close to Heavenly Father.
