That’s the Plan
We recently asked our children what they learned in Primary. This is the response we got from our 8-year-old daughter: “We learned about the Celestial, Tree-restrial and Telelestial kingdoms. It was all about birth, earth, death, and final counseling."

One day this week, I found my 3-year-old daughter standing on her desk in her room, reaching for something on the top shelf. As I helped her down, I said, “You know you’re not allowed to climb on your desk.” She replied: “But I was just pretending to be Samuel the Lamanite!”
The First Vision
The other day my 3-year-old son and I were reading the story of the first vision in the Book of Mormon Reader. I was pointing to each picture and explaining what happened. When we got to the picture of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appearing to Joseph Smith, I asked, "What do you think they said to Joseph Smith?" He replied: “They said, 'Get out of the forest! It's not safe!'"

Once during family home evening, we asked the children to tell us their favorite story about Jesus. Noah raised his hand and said: "My favorite story was when Jesus healed the ten leprechauns."
While teaching a class of 7-year-olds about the Old Testament, I asked what the children of Israel ate in the wilderness. We had already discussed this, so I prompted, "Remember it came from Heavenly Father.” Annette's face lit up and she excitedly suggested: “Angel food cake?"
When my daughter Candice was a Sunbeam, she was asked to give her first talk in Primary. The big day came and our independent little one announced she did not need any help because she was a big girl. It was with great pride that her father and I sat in the audience and listened to her deliver a wonderful talk on Shadrach, Meshach and the Billy Goat.
