    Show and Tell

    The Valiant 12 Class, Canandaigua Ward, Palmyra New York Stake, stuffed more than 200 teddy bears that their Primary teacher sewed. No two bears were alike. The class sent the bears to other children in Indiana and Kentucky who had lost their homes in tornadoes. They also sent bears to children in New York after Hurricane Sandy.

    Julia U., age 3, Utah, USA, and two of her brothers, Jared (8) and Kevin (6), got to be in the Easter pageant in Mesa, Arizona. They dressed in Bible-style clothes and shared their testimonies of Jesus Christ.

    Jesus is my friend.

    He loves my whole family.

    We love Jesus too.

    Adam S., age 6, Washington, USA

    The Primary music leader taught us a song that teaches that Jesus Christ is my example. If we follow Jesus’s example in obeying our parents, He will bless us.

    At school, a boy used to be mean to me. My mom and I decided to invite him to our house to play. He and I had fun. We have been friends ever since!

    Cohen R., age 9, British Columbia, Canada

    When my dad was in the military, we moved a lot. But one thing I know is that everywhere we go, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be the same. This made moving so much easier for me.

    Rylan W., age 9, New Mexico, USA

    I went to an Easter egg hunt and filled my basket with eggs. I noticed that some kids were sad because they had come late and didn’t find any eggs. I shared my eggs with them, and it made them happy. I felt good for serving them and felt the Spirit.

    Danny D., age 9, Florida, USA

    My friend and I were playing when he said we should play a prank on someone. At first it sounded fun, but then I remembered President Gordon B. Hinckley’s story about leaving money in a man’s shoes by the roadside instead of stealing his shoes. I told my friend it wasn’t a good idea and felt good for choosing the right.
