“Show and Tell,” Friend, Mar. 2015, 26–27
Before I was baptized I took a picture dressed as my scripture hero, Captain Moroni. I keep this picture in my room to help me remember to keep my covenants like Captain Moroni did (see Alma 60:34). Keeping my covenants helps me make better choices, feel happy, and grow closer to my Heavenly Father.

One day my friend was passing out birthday invitations to kids in our class. Instead of giving me one, she said, “I’m not inviting you to my party.” I was very sad. I decided to get her a present anyway. I know I can be like Jesus when I do nice things even if others don’t include me. Sometimes it is hard to do, but I love my friends even when they don’t include me. I know that’s how Jesus wants us to be.

Even though my dad is not a member of the Church, I still pray at his house. When the lights go out and the doors are closed, I kneel down and pray. I am glad I can feel the Holy Ghost at my dad’s house.
