    We Listened and Helped

    In church they talked about how Hurricane Katrina had destroyed houses and how children had no toys or food or supplies. Afterward I couldn’t stop crying. My mom helped me think of some things we could do to help those unfortunate people. We started donating toys and books that we didn’t use anymore. We donated 116 toys and books. We prayed and also decided to donate some money. If I was tempted to be selfish, I didn’t feel it because Heavenly Father’s love was warming me. I believe the Holy Ghost touched my heart and my mom’s heart. I’m glad we listened and helped. We hugged each other afterward because we felt so good.
