Victoria’s Helping Hands

Little Girl

Victoria likes looking for ways to show her love. Sometimes it’s sharing a handmade card, giving a hug, or even sharing her food.

At school she would often sing “I Am a Child of God” out loud. Soon all of the teachers in her school learned the words. Sometimes they would even sing along.

When schools closed because of COVID-19, her teachers remembered Victoria’s song. They asked if she would send a video of herself singing “I Am a Child of God” to help cheer them up. Victoria and her little sister decided to sing the song together for the video. They wanted to surprise their teachers and help them smile, so they learned to sing it in Arabic too!
