“Our Creative Friends,” Friend, Mar. 2008, 28–29
Do you want to be like Nephi and Lehi?
Or do you want to be like Laman and Lemuel?
I want to be like Nephi and Lehi!

We wouldn’t have families, plants, or beautiful things.
There wouldn’t be churches or butterflies with wings.
We wouldn’t have friends, shoulders to cry on,
Love and life, and of course, grass to lie on.
We wouldn’t have dogs or toys like Buzz.
There wouldn’t be cats or pillows with fuzz.
But when I think of all these things,
I remember why I am here.
Dallin L., age 10, Nevada
He built the earth so big and round.
He filled the world with beautiful sound.
He made the ocean and the land.
He made the mountains big and grand.
He made the rivers vast and flowing.
He made the trees upward growing.
He made the night when owls take flight.
He made the days with glorious light.
He made the sun and all its rays.
He did it all in six days.

One of the Godhead
You are promised it when you’re eight
Only if you’re righteous
