At the School Carnival

Jesus … gave his love to ev’ryone. So I will! (Children’s Songbook, page 141.)

Trent and Carley each tried to be like Jesus Christ at a school carnival. When a two-year-old boy was having trouble getting up the slide, Trent helped him. He said that he felt good for helping him and that he did it because in the scriptures, “Jesus told me to do it.”

Carley played a game at the carnival in which if you threw a ball into a certain cup, you won a fish. She won “seven or a lot of fishes.” Another boy, about six years old, won only one fish, and he dropped it. Carley gave him one of hers “because it was the right thing to do.” The boy was very happy, which made Carley feel very good.
