Pippi's Talk

Last month Pippi gave a talk in primary. All of the words were hers, and she stood up confidently as I stood behind her for moral support. This is her talk:

"Jesus lived on the earth a long, long, long time ago.

"Jesus helped some people that were sick.

"He washed His disciples feet.

"He died for us. He made it possible so we can live with Heavenly father again.

"He's still real even though he's up in Heaven. Heaven is real.

"Jesus is going to come back to the earth someday."

The girl practiced like crazy. I couldn't believe how much she enjoyed standing on the piano bench and giving her talk to Hunter. She also gave it to Bardo during lunch. And then she practiced over and over again in the car on the way to church. And all the practice paid off, because her talk was perfect.

Awesome talk, Pippi! Good testimony and a good demonstration that your mom and dad are teaching you great things.

I love the talk! And your rain coat and boots are darling as well- I'm so glad that there is such a strong testimony in there of heaven and the fact that it is "real" at her age, nice work!

Oh how I wish I could have been there! What a good talk that was. I love it when kids share their own ideas.
