    The Temple

    The temple is a holy place

    Where people like to go.

    There is an angel Moroni

    So high up in the sky.

    The walls are made of granite,

    So beautiful and white.

    I feel so very special

    When I am in its light.

    Sariah F., age 7, Wyoming

    The Spirit

    Each time I get a blessing, I feel the Spirit near.

    I hear the comforting words from my Father dear.

    He teaches me what’s right, and how to live a good life,

    But most of all He teaches me that He really lives.

    Caitlyn C., age 12, Utah


    Flowers big and flowers small,

    But every flower is sweet.

    And if I smell them really well,

    They’re sure to give me a treat.

    I love you and you love me,

    But sometimes we will fight.

    But if I love you and you love me,

    Again we will be right.

    Emmalani P., age 9, Kansas


    Jesus made for us an earth,

    And then He sent us here through birth.

    He made us trees and lots of plants,

    He made us water and made us land.

    He’s helping us along the way.

    We owe Him much,

    So start today.
