We went to the Bishop's Storehouse for an activity. I felt happy and grateful that we could do it.

The other night I was asked to go help with somebody's house. I would have stayed home and wasted the night away, but instead I chose to go. I had a fun time and a good conversation. It helped better my day and made me happy after a long day.

Striking up a conversation with a store clerk who was being ignored by most customers, I felt like I went away with a new friend.

Doing service for Sister C. made me feel really good. I know that she is not able to do it on her own but it made me feel the Spirit.

Well, I was driving with some friends and we saw someone stop on the road and looked like they needed help, so we pulled over and they had car trouble and they didn't have a phone, so one of my friends stayed with the family and we took the dad to a car shop to see if they could get a tow truck. We got one. They tried to pay us, but we said no. After that we all felt closer to one another and had more faith. We felt great.

It had just snowed a lot and me and a friend decided to go out and shovel people's driveways. We were about to go home, but we decided to do one more house. While we were shoveling we noticed a guy moving something from his house and he was struggling with it, so we both offered to help and he said yes. After we got done he tried to give us $50, but we turned it down and told him we wanted to help for service. Instead, he bought us hot chocolate. It felt so good to help and that day was more peaceful and happy.

Often during the winter, I get a call to help shovel snow at the church. It seems to come always when I don't feel like it. But after I go, I always feel like I have helped serve the Lord. And, I feel good that I don't have the guilt for not going.

My parents are struggling with the challenge of age. One Saturday we came together, seven of nine children, along with grandchildren, and worked in the yard. It was a great experience. Hard work, but a great feeling to help Mom and Dad.

We make homemade bread and share it with family and neighbors. Makes us feel good that we can share with others.
