“Show and Tell,” Friend, Apr. 2016, 28–29
When I was eight, I was very excited and happy to be baptized like Jesus was and to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I enjoy going to the temple with my family.

Recently the two wards in our city were split to make three wards. I was a little nervous about going to a new Primary. But after a few Sundays, I knew I didn’t need to feel nervous because the Holy Ghost helped me feel calm and relaxed. I have even made new friends!

For a class project, we had to represent someone important to American history. I chose Wilford Woodruff and researched him for three months. I dressed as President Woodruff and brought my scriptures and other items to represent him. I felt the Spirit as I shared information with others who are not members of our faith!

My uncle and his family have had some challenges. After talking with my parents, we decided to have a day of fasting for them. Although we haven’t seen any changes, I know that Heavenly Father has heard us and will watch over them during these challenges. I am so thankful for the power of fasting and prayer. Heavenly Father really cares about and loves us, knows our concerns, and wants to help us.
