Primary Talks......

A month or so ago Miss Priss had the opportunity to give a talk in Primary. I love when my littles get to gives talks in Primary. It is the sweetest thing ever. It gives you a little glimpse into their sweet developing testimony. When preparing our children for a Primary talk, we always ask them to think about the topic given. This weeks focus was going to be on "being a missionary". Once Miss Priss had taken some time to think, I grabbed some paper and pen. I then asked her questions about the topic like....Who can be a missionary? What can we do to be a missionary? What should we tell people about the Gospel? Who are we acting like when we are a missionary? I then asked her to put her thoughts into a sentence and dictate back to me. I wrote these thoughts down and then her talk developed in to a beautiful testimony. I made sure she could read back what I wrote down and then we were done. It took about 10 minutes or so. She loved getting up on Sunday, knowing she was sharing her very own talk. It wasn't something I had created for her. It was her very own words. I love seeing my children grow in the Gospel. I am thankful for these sweet spirits I have been blessed with. I love sharing the story of Christ with them. I love teaching them everyday to recognize the sweet comforter of the Holy Ghost. I love these munchkins. They are absolutely for keeps.

Oh and in case you were curious about her talk, I shared it below. I wanted to make sure I journaled it on the blog here.

Being a Missionary
By Libby
November 2012

To be a missionary is to serve the Lord. Everyone can be a missionary because we are all important to God. He wants us to spread the Gospel. You can spread the Gospel by telling your friends about God. We act nice to our friends to show how Christ would act. The most important thing to share is that Jesus Christ is real and he died for everyone. I leave you with my testimony that I know my Savior lives and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen

Well said Freckles :) I love you!

  1. Great job! My family and I are missionaries to Australia. I love when people realize you don't have to get on a plane to be a missionary!! It's all about sharing God's love and His free gift of salvation!

  4. Her testimony is so sweet! I never got the chance to grow up in the church. I started going when I was 12 (My mother was inactive for about 20 some years before that) I'm currently inactive now as well. My husband was raised catholic and it's a touchy subject. My son is turning 3 soon and my daughter is 5 months. Hopefully I will get to experience writing a talk for primary with my kiddies some day :)

  6. Your little girl's talk is wonderful.Little ones and their testimonies are so amazing. They are such an example to us adults with their unwavering and unquestioning faith. They just know Heavenly Father and Jesus loves them. I have been following your blog for a little while and wondered if you were LDS. Thanks for all the work you put into your blog

  8. I came here for your thrifty tips. I say without hesitation that it's posts like this that make me stay. :)

    I truly believe a mother's best testimony is the testimony of her children. While her testimony is moving, it's the fact that she has lead her children on the path of Christ that is telling.

    Thank you so much for sharing. :)

  9. Great blog. I relate on many levels, as I, too, am LDS. However, you might want to change "dinning" to "dining."
