Being There

I was there today for another milestone: my daughter's first talk in Primary at church! Four years ago Emma was still an infant, and I wasn't even allowed to lift her out of her crib because I was recovering from neurosurgery. At that time, milestones like this seemed like a long shot -- but still something to hope for.

With no stage fright and only a little help, Emma walked up to the little microphone in front of the other Primary children and read her talk:

"We believe in God. I am a child of God. God is the Father of my spirit. We are all part of God's family.

"We believe in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is our Savior. He saves us from death and sin.

"Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. They love you, too. We should love each other. We are all children of God.

"In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
