“Show and Tell,” Friend, September 2016, 28–29
I wanted to share the gospel with my friend, so I gave him a pass-along card on the bus. I told him about Heavenly Father, and I felt good.

I was at gym class, and I saw a boy bully another kid to tears. I told the bully to stop, but he didn’t, so I told the teacher. Later I invited the boy who was bullied to sit with me and my friends at lunch. It feels good to be a friend.

I went with my mom and the missionaries. We knocked on a door of a family who was searching for a church to go to. I felt the Spirit tell me that our church is true. I can’t wait until I’m 19 so I can go on a mission!

We love to hike together as sisters. Even if we get mad or our legs get tired, we should still be nice and take care of each other. Jesus taught us to love one another.
Danielle and Jordan P., ages 7 and 5, Utah, USA
On an indoor recess day at school, I offered my friends the Friend magazine to look at. I told them it was a religious magazine that had stories, projects, and games. After we read three issues together, they asked if I had any more I could bring. I hope I have more chances to teach others about the gospel.
