Boyhood Memories

At the age of 5 or 6, I remember being taught in the Sunday school sand box
with stick figures representing Jesus and his Apostles. Jesus’ teachings were acted out in the sand box using those stick figures. A very common theme—which was repeated over and over—was “you need to be like Jesus.” In other words, in each scenario, I was taught to “be like Jesus.” Jesus was to be my role-model, my teacher, my master, and my mentor in my daily actions and interactions.
