I. Answer to Prayer. When I was a little girl 7 or 8 years old I did much of my mothers shopping. One morning she sent me to the grocery store with a five dollar gold piece, charging me not to lose it. When about half way to the store I missed the money. I ran back hoping to find it but couldn’t see it anywhere. I walked over the road two or three times, then started back home crying bitterly to confess to mother I had lost her precious five dollars, when the thot came to me to ask Heavenly Father to help me find the money. I immediately dropped on my knees on the sidewalk and told the Lord how much my mother needed that money and to please help me to find it. When I arose to my feet wondering which way to go, something said go on to the store. In just a few steps I found the money lying in the gravel. I was truly thankful, ran and made the purchase and hurried home to tell mother my experience. She kissed and loved me, told me I was a good girl and Heavenly Father would always help me if I just remembered to ask Him.
