How I know I am a child of God, by Claire

I asked each of my children how they personally
 know that they are children of God.  
Each Little Nie told me and gave me permission to share their very
personal thoughts on my blog about how they know they
are children of God.
(These thoughts are word for word)

I know that I am a child of God because of all the wonderful experiences I've had.
I know because of my many church leaders who share their
very strong testimony, and also
from the lovely and terrific parents who love me.
And of course, because Heavenly Father sent Christ to earth to be my Savior.
I know that Christ lives and I know that from my personal
scripture study and very hopeful prayer.
I am honored to be God's daughter.  
I know I am a child of God because of all of the amazing details he puts into
each of His children.  It's incredible.
Recently, I was learning about the eye in health class.
My mom and I were discussing about how fascinating and detailed the eye is.
I know that God created the eye, and He created everything in our bodies.
I know that Heavenly Father loves me, and I believe in 
Him and have a testimony.
I know because I prayed and asked.
I had a special experience at Girls camp where we prayed and 
studied the scriptures for 20 minutes
alone near our camp site in the woods.
I studied the scriptures and wrote in my journal.  I thought about
Christ and my Heavenly Father and felt a very overwhelming feeling of God's 
love for me.  It was so amazing.
