    Show and Tell

    quotes and drawings from kids

    Primary children in Virginia, USA, were given the “toothbrush challenge”—to look in the mirror and say, “I am a child of God,” when they brushed their teeth each day. Each Sunday they shared how God had helped them during the week. Then they put a pom-pom in a jar to help them remember that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love them.

    In our family scripture study, we are reading about Nephi building a boat, so we decided to build a boat out of small logs. We can obey the Lord, like Nephi did.

    I volunteer at Give Kids the World, where kids with critical illnesses stay for a vacation. I help by serving them slushies, ice cream, hot dogs, soda, and other foods.

    Our family was recently baptized, and we love our new church. One night for home evening, our mum suggested we make a family tree using our old passport photos. It was a fun night!

    I like to read the Book of Mormon to my little sister. My favorite scripture is 1 Nephi 3:7.

    Our city does an interfaith food drive every year. We pass out fliers and then pick up the food left on the doorsteps. When we delivered the food to the depot, I felt really excited. My mom said that feeling was the Holy Ghost.

    I like when my friends help me with my questions.
