I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus

One of my favorite primary hymns is, I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus by Janice Kapp Perry
I’m trying to be like Jesus;
I’m following in his ways.
I’m trying to love as he did, in all that I do and say.
At times I am tempted to make a wrong choice,
But I try to listen as the still small voice whispers,
“Love one another as Jesus loves you.
Try to show kindness in all that you do.
Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought,
For these are the things Jesus taught.”
I’m trying to love my neighbor;
I’m learning to serve my friends.
I watch for the day of gladness when Jesus will come again.
I try to remember the lessons he taught.
Then the Holy Spirit enters into my thoughts, saying:

When my sister-in-law, Lynn saw this video she said, "How fun! I've seen his story on Mormon Times and I know Denny and Leslie Hancock from Bellevue, WA.  Great story and what a great family. I haven't seen them in years but they were such a great family way back when so doesn't surprise me that they still are!"

Thank you Denny Hancock for showing us how to be like Jesus.
