“Honesty Quiz,” Friend, Apr. 2011, 17
In the story “Niya’s Choice” on the previous page, Niya was honest when she returned the extra change to the storekeeper. You can take this quiz to see if you are striving to be honest, or if honesty is something you need to work on.

If you chose mostly A’s …
Try to work harder at being honest. Remember what My Gospel Standards says: “I will be honest with Heavenly Father, others, and myself.” Think about the choices Heavenly Father wants you to make. Even if the result of an honest choice doesn’t turn out the way you want, you will know that you chose the right.
If you chose mostly B’s …
Honesty is important to you. You try hard to be honest, even if it isn’t always easy. Heavenly Father is pleased when you are honest. When you’re at school, at home, or with your friends, being honest is always the best choice. Keep up the good work!
