Courage to Be Honest

Elena H., age 7, New South Wales, Australia

One time I went to stay at my abuelo’s home with my mum and sisters. (Abuelo is the Spanish word for grandpa.) When I got up in the morning, I started playing with the curtains in the bedroom. Suddenly the rod fell down. I was very worried and scared to tell anyone because I didn’t want my abuelo to be angry. I said a prayer and asked Heavenly Father what I should do. I felt the Holy Ghost tell me that I should tell my abuelo the truth. I went downstairs and told him that I accidentally broke the curtains and that I was very sorry. Abuelo said it was OK, and that it wasn’t my fault because it was already broken. I felt really happy for telling the truth.
