“Show and Tell,” Friend, January 2019
Senior Primary children in Greater Manchester, England, wrote their own verse about President Russell M. Nelson for the song “Follow the Prophet.”
Russell is a prophet,
Baptised at sixteen.
His parents were less active;
He was very keen.
He became a doctor,
Doctor of the heart.
Building many temples,
He has made a start.
When I was 2 1/2 years old, my family moved. For my birthday, my family and I went back to Guatemala for my baptism. I was so happy to be with so many of my family on that special day.

A lizard is a timid thing.
It can’t fly or sing.
It hunts for bugs on the floor.
And looks like a dinosaur.

If I see a bad word on a website, I close the page immediately.

My uncle Keith has been really sick. I decided that I should fast for him on fast Sunday. On that Sunday he had the strength to go to church. On the next fast Sunday, I fasted for him again. I know that fasting can help the person that you fast for.

I asked a girl at recess if I could play with her. She told me to go away. The same thing happened the next week. I went to her house to give her some hair bows and pudding. The next day she said I could play with her. I followed Jesus’s example by being nice to someone who was mean to me, and I gained a friend!

I did a family home evening!

There was a new boy in my class in school who couldn’t speak English. In the computer lab, I sat next to him and helped him with the assignment we were given. I felt good after I helped him.

I am the oldest kid in Primary, and everyone looks up to me, so I act reverent.
Nicholas F., age 11, Idaho, USA
I am getting older, so I have been getting mean a lot more. I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if He could help me. I felt a good feeling inside.
