I Wanted to Know

When I was about six or seven, I wanted to know if the scriptures were true. My mom said I needed to pray and find out for myself. I did, and I felt really warm inside. I know that the scriptures are true. I have a testimony that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins and that He helped many people. I also have a testimony of Joseph Smith. I know that the Church is true. I will always be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I think the Friend magazine helps children to learn about the Church, and it always has something to catch our attention. It also helps us to see that we can pray to Heavenly Father for help and He will help us.
