 When I Serve My Family, I Serve God
 
As hard as I try, sometimes I have trouble keeping my room clean. I am not really a messy boy, I just love to read books, play games, and have fun. My Mom says my room can go from neat to messy in just a few minutes. The only part that is fun about my room getting messy is that I know Anthony will always help me clean it.
 
One day I asked him why he was always so nice. He said that when he helped me do something that I felt was hard he felt the Spirit tell him it was the right thing to do. He asked for me to give it a try some time. My little sister Kate pulled all of the books off of Sarah's book shelf. I knew this was my chance. before anyone asked me for help, I went in and did the best I could to get the books back how they were.
 
Even though I did not do a perfect job, my sister was VERY happy that I took the time to help at all. The best part of all was the feeling I felt in my heart knowing that I helped my family. This is what Jesus wants us to do. This is a way that I can help my family and show them I love them like My Father loves me. I am really happy that I can be in Primary and learn more about helping others and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
