    Wendy: You Mormons aren’t really Christians.
    Mandy: Let me help you with that.

    Wendy: You believe in Joseph Smith, not Jesus.
    Mandy: Joseph Smith taught us to believe in Jesus. He spent his whole life following Jesus. He died serving Him.

    Wendy: I still say you’re not a Christian, and if you say you are, we can’t be friends.
    Mandy: Wendy, I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. He suffered for my sins. He died on the cross for me. He was resurrected so that I can live again. I love Him with all my heart. If you don’t think I’m a Christian, that’s OK. I still want to be your friend.

    Wendy: Thanks for helping me with the playhouse.
    Mandy: You’re welcome.

    Wendy: Let’s keep being friends.
    Mandy: Let’s do.
