The Brother of Jared Was Faithful

Friend Magazine, 2016/10 Oct

The brother of Jared needed light to cross the ocean. He made 16 small stones and asked Jesus to touch them to make them glow. When Jesus reached out to touch the stones, the brother of Jared saw Jesus’s finger. The brother of Jared had so much faith that Jesus showed Himself to him. Jesus told the brother of Jared that no one had ever had so much faith in Him.

My family and I were driving home from my grandparents’ house after Christmas. The roads were very icy. Our minivan got stuck going up a hill. My dad got out of the van and tried to push it up the icy hill, but it wouldn’t move. We were stuck. I said a prayer and asked Heavenly Father to help us. My dad got back out of the van and pushed again, and we went up the hill! Heavenly Father does answer our prayers, and He loves us.
