Soft Answers Are the Best Answers

Samantha M., age 9, Utah

I used to fight with my brothers about things that weren’t important. Then I read “Soft Answers and Muddy Paws” in the December 2011 Friend. I realized that soft answers are the right answers. That story has really helped me to not fight with my two brothers. Now that I have read the story, whenever I almost get in a fight, I say a soft prayer and walk away. Soon after, I am able to come back and say, “I love you!” Thank you for that story!
