Ask a parent or family member about a time when things didn’t go like they hoped. How did they get through it? Write or draw a picture about it in your journal.

Quarantine Choices

Staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic has helped me get creative and gain a testimony. I play music, play with my bunny, read my Book of Mormon, and play with my siblings. I used to not like reading my scriptures, but now I love it. I also used to try to get out of work, and now I look for ways to help. We can all use this time to get closer to family and Heavenly Father.

A Look inside the Temple

This room in the temple is called an endowment room. (The word “endowment” means “gift.”) In this room, we learn more about Heavenly Father’s plan for us. We also make covenants, or promises, with Heavenly Father there.

Use this word search to find where this temple is. Hint: The name of the city goes down. The name of the country goes across. (See page 39.)
