“Have You Seen a Miracle? and What Have Heavenly Father and Jesus Done for You?” Kids Respond

“Have You Seen a Miracle? and What Have Heavenly Father and Jesus Done for You?” Kids Respond April 13, 2020

What miracles have you seen throughout your life? And what have Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ done for you? How have you seen the hand of God in your life?

I was really interested in the children’s responses.  Many of the 58 respondents said they hadn’t seen a miracle in their life, but almost all of them had seen the hand of God in their life.  The ways they’d seen the hand of God are also miracles to me.

Just like the children, I believe that Heavenly Father and Jesus are involved in the details of our lives.

This was my favorite segment in the series. I really loved reading the children’s experiences of miracles and how Heavenly Father and Jesus have blessed their lives. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ do walk with us along life’s journey.  May we always have eyes to see the miracles around us and the hand of God in our lives.
