“Show and Tell,” Friend, Sep. 2015, 26–27
I thank Thee, God, for the light,
For it shines through day and night.
I thank Thee, God, for the trees,
For they seem to ease that powerful breeze.
I thank Thee, God, for much more that I can’t define.
I know deep to the core that You’ve created this life of mine.
Nisha J., age 10, Airai, Republic of Palau
My grandma is a great example to me about doing family history. I enjoy going to the family history center with her to learn more about my family and how their lives impact my life now. I am so glad I can find out who my ancestors are.

My bishop challenged our ward to index 100,000 names, but our ward did 150,000 names! I indexed 2,518 names! I have loved this experience and look forward to attending the temple when I am 12 to participate in temple baptisms.

The Medford Oregon Temple is special to me because I was sealed to my parents after being in foster care and then being adopted by them. I was also able to attend the temple when my little brother was sealed to our parents. I want to go back to the temple again and again and again!

Our family wanted to do 100 “helping hands” before a friend came home from a mission. We did 103! Even after we reached our goal, we still say, “I did a service hand!” We’re excited to keep serving.
