A six year old’s testimony

The other day Daniel was bored and asked me for a suggestion of something to do. I suggested coloring because he loves to draw. He worked quietly for a long time and then came to me with this letter. I was really surprised that it wasn’t a bright colorful drawing like usual. He had decided that he wanted to write something that was important to him. Bear in mind that this is a kid who really doesn’t like handwriting, and this was a big effort for him. He wrote this all by himself, and then proudly read it to me.

Here is his letter with translation by sentence for those who are not used to reading children’s writing. In case you are wondering, at homeschool we do have grammar, handwriting, and spelling each day, but when we are studying literature and doing journals, I want them to do free writing and not worry about errors or mistakes, so they just write it how they think it should be, without having to worry about corrections. I get a lot more out of them this way.

Jesus will cume agan and He will helq the sick and the ded.

Jesus will come again and He will help the sick and the dead.

He can do eneything in the wirld and we must pray evreday to Jesus.

He can do anything in the world and we must pray every day to Jesus.

We love him so we shold keep the cmamints everday and oday youor perints and love arenator and we must oday Jesus and at chrch we must be revrint and sit quitle at sakemint.

We love him, so we should keep the commandments every day and obey your parents and love another and we must obey Jesus and at church we must be reverent and sit quietly at sacrament.

We love thee. In the name of Jesus Crist amen.

We love thee. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Daniel

Thank you Daniel, for being MY teacher today.
