Nathan’s Helping Hands

Nathan Ekiridzo

Nathan loves to read. His favorite books are the Book of Mormon, the New Testament, and books that help him learn French better. Nathan says it’s important to read the scriptures “to learn what Jesus did for us and follow His example of kindness.” He likes to help his younger siblings Stephy and Aaron learn to read too! He helps them with their homework and reads Book of Mormon stories with them. He feels happy to help.

Nathan also helps his siblings make their beds and get ready for school with their snacks and backpacks. He is a peacemaker at school and tries to follow Jesus’s example of being kind to others.
