“Show and Tell,” Friend, Jan. 2016, 28–29
One day I told my teacher about the things I learned in Primary and invited him to come to church. I feel happy that I shared the gospel!

Our scripture study takes 10 minutes before school. My brother and I read five verses from the Book of Mormon, and then our mom explains it. Next we read a page from the Book of Mormon Stories. My little sisters are learning to read, so we help them. I enjoy this scripture time with my family.

My parents have taught my brother and me the importance of reading scriptures. To help me be reverent during the sacrament and think of Jesus, I read my scriptures.

I was really scared to get baptized because I don’t like going under water. My mom showed me a picture of a girl getting baptized who looked really happy, and we read articles from the Friend about baptism. My mom gave me a jar of gumballs and told me that every day she would talk about baptism and then I would get a gumball. I felt a little better about my baptism after that.

After breakfast our family reads the scriptures. The scriptures teach us to be kind and happy. Ridge, our puppy, sometimes listens too!

When we read scriptures as a family, we sit in a circle. My mom reads, and then we talk about what we just read to help us understand it. I have been reading the scriptures myself using the chart in the Friend. When I read the scriptures, I feel wonderful!
