    Show and Tell

    For my birthday this year, I decided to have a lemonade stand and a bake sale and give the money to a children’s hospital. My sister, cousins, and I made flyers and took them around our neighborhood. Then we made treats and lemonade. We were so excited to see so many friends and neighbors come to our sale. I am happy I could help the sick children and their families. I think that’s what Jesus would do.

    When I went with my father to the Buenos Aires Argentina Temple, I got to see many beautiful places inside and many sacred rooms. It was an open house, so for a few days many people could see the temple. Soon I will be old enough to enter the temple and do baptisms for the dead. I love Jesus Christ and my family.

    Last year, my Primary teacher asked us to pray for a girl in our class who hadn’t come to church. I decided to remember her in my personal prayers too. I prayed for her all year, even though I didn’t know her. I reminded my family to include her during family prayer too. I was so happy because that friend came to Primary on Christmas Sunday! She is now my friend and comes to church sometimes. I know Heavenly Father heard those prayers.

    When we noticed that many of the hymnbooks at church were tattered, we set up a family Hymnal Hospital. In the church library, we use a hymnal repair kit with rubber cement and tape to carefully mend each hymnal “patient.” We then return the hymnals to the chapel. We love helping put the hymnals back together!

    Sienna D., age 6, Wyoming, USA, likes to draw pictures for her family and play with her dog Max. Her favorite part of Primary is singing time. Each month, she looks through the Friend for hidden pictures. She likes spending time with her cousins and helping her grandmother bake.

    Each month, Maelea, Parker, and Caleb V., ages 4, 2, and 6, Wisconsin, USA, make the three-hour drive so their parents can attend the temple. The week before the trip, the kids love to change the words to a favorite Primary song and sing, “I love to see the temple, we’re going on Saturday!” They know Jesus loves when they visit the temple.
