    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.

    Since I love origami, I decided to make an origami missionary with my own step-by-step instructions!

    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.

    Primary children in the Virden Ward, Duncan Arizona Stake, New Mexico, USA, fill jars of pennies to buy copies of the Book of Mormon for the missionaries. Every Sunday, children who bring their scriptures get to put a penny into a jar. When it is filled, they put a child’s testimony in each Book of Mormon to share.

    Activity-day girls from the Cortez 1st, 3rd, and 4th and Mancos Wards, Colorado, USA, worked together to serve the people in their community. They learned how to shine shoes and enjoyed working hard and visiting while they served others.

    Standing Tall Footprints


    I will stand tall by helping my mom and dad. I will clean up my dishes after I eat.

    One time I was watching baseball on TV and it was a commercial break. I saw an inappropriate thing and looked away.

    This year I will follow Jesus by giving to those in need, even when it’s not their birthday. I can give them clothes and shoes and food.

    Tess H., age 5, Utah, USA

    I will stand tall by helping others and not being spoiled and always being hasty to help.

    I will tell people that I love them.

    I will try to think about Jesus when I take the sacrament.
