P is for prophets who show us the way.
E is for eternal, a family can be.
L is for love through eternity.

I was jumping on the trampoline, and my mum called me to come for dinner. I kept jumping, and about 10 minutes later I felt that I really should go inside. Just after I got off the trampoline, a car crashed through the fence into the trampoline! I’m glad that I listened to the Holy Ghost, who protected me from being seriously hurt.

Playing sports is really fun for me, and it helps me be healthy and be in shape for when I am a missionary! My mom helped me get into basketball, and my cousin taught me how to play. I love my family, and I’m very protective of all of them.
David W., age 11, Georgia, USA
The missionaries asked me to think of a creative way I could share the gospel. I decided to carve a CTR shield in my pumpkin so everyone could see it when they came to my door.

My extended family has Muslims, Catholics, and other Christians. I can teach all of them about the gospel by inviting them to my baptism.
