    Helping a Neighbor

    In doing … good unto thy fellow beings, [thou] wilt promote the glory of him who is your Lord (D&C 81:4).

    We had recently moved to Middlebury, Indiana, from San Antonio, Texas, and were looking forward to seeing snow. When it came, Jordan and his friend Justin shoveled a neighbor’s sidewalk because they liked her and wanted to help her. They were delighted with the unexpected reward of doughnuts and hot chocolate when they finished her walk and driveway.
