mary said, "do whatever he tells you." I home school my 11 year-old, and my teacher book tells me to correct like this...Mary said, "Do whatever He tells you." Why would you capitalize He?

Must be a religious book. He or Him are capitalized when referring to God.

Yeah, that's the only explanation I can think of. If it is not talking about God, he should NOT be capitalized.

Good Morning, Yes, they are definitley referring to God, so that makes sense. I have seen pronouns capitilazed and not capitalized when referring to God, so I wanted a concrete reason why. Could not find one in any of my referenc books. If anyone finds a reference to this that I can look up, I would truly appreciate you sharing it with me. Thanks and God Bless. Anna

Here is the official rule from the Gregg Reference manual, section 349, page 112. Capitalize personal pronouns referring to a supreme being when they stand alone, without an antecedent nearby. Offer thanks unto Him. BUT: Ask the Lord for his blessing. Mr. Dooley (the pseudonym for Finley Peter Dunne) said, "A fanatic is a man that does what he thinks the Lord would do if he knew the facts of the case.
