it's a month of firsts it seems... today madeline gave her first primary talk, her topic was "jesus christ created the earth for me", so naturally i looked for the good old talks for tots book that we used time and time again as kids, that mum had so kindly given me a few years ago (it may be old, but it is still the best, well worth your money if you have primary aged kids. you can get one here)
in the beginning (p23)
Long before we were born on this earth we lived as spirit children with God, our Heavenly Father, and our brother, Jesus Christ. We were happy and we loved one another.
We needed bodies as we have on this earth; so God told Jesus Christ to make this earth. He put Adam and Eve on it. Adam and Eve became the first parents. They are great-great-great-grandparents to all the people on earth.
If we live as our Heavenly Father wants us to, we will be able to live with him again. We will know Jesus. We will be with our families.
I know Jesus Christ created the earth for me and for all of you. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
she was such a little rockstar, got up there cool as a cucumber and repeated everything clearly as i said it to her. i was so proud and so glad she is being so brave. i am sure it's just the beginning of a whole lot of talking that will come from her. hahaha.
