“Show and Tell,” Friend, Jun. 2015, 26–27
One day I did something wrong at school and wanted to ask for forgiveness from Heavenly Father. I found a place to be alone and prayed to Him. My friend saw me and asked what I was doing. I told him I was praying. He asked me to teach him how to pray. It felt good to teach my friend. I felt like a missionary!

My mom and I were at the store one day. I asked if I could use the “self-checkout” line by myself. After I paid my money to the machine, the money dispenser gave me back 40 extra dollars! I heard a comforting voice telling me to be honest, so I turned in the money that didn’t belong to me to a store employee. I got a warm feeling inside telling me I had done the right thing!

My school was having a fundraiser that I was really excited about. My mom was worried when she found out it was planned for a Sunday. She asked me what I wanted to do, and I said, “I love to go to church. I want to keep all of the commandments.” My example gives my mom courage!

When my ballet teacher died, I brought flowers and a card to her mom. I knew she was very sad. She sent me a card back saying how happy the flowers and card made her. It made me happy that I could help her feel better and let her know that I remembered my ballet teacher.

I had been to the doctor after my stomach kept hurting and I had headaches for several months. The doctor couldn’t find anything wrong with me, but I kept feeling ill. My mom said that we should turn to the Lord for answers. On fast Sunday, she was inspired to put me on a special diet. Soon I was feeling great! Even though I can’t eat some of the foods I like, I know I can accept this challenge because Heavenly Father and Jesus will help me through this.

I like it when I get to go to work with my dad because he fixes cars. We like watching football games. When we ride our go-cart, we always say a prayer first so we won’t get hurt.
