Warren was asked to give a talk in Primary during the time when everyone is gathered together. His first one ever. He’d tackled being the reverence child and giving the prayer. We were excited to see what he’d come up with for this assignment.
Colin and Warren sat down the Saturday before and hammered out the following words:
How Prayer Strengthens Me and My Family
Our family prays at dinner & breakfast & lunch & bedtime & morning. (He insisted on using every ampersand.)
Prayer helps us be happy. It helps us to get blessings from Heavenly Father. But it doesn’t help us catch ducks!
I am thankful for family prayer.
I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Colin and I sat in the back of the Primary room as Warren bravely walked up to the seats next to the podium. His wonderful Primary President looked to us as he stepped up to the microphone, expecting him to ask for our help.
He started out on his own, almost blurting out his duck joke, but quickly turned to Sister Neeley for assistance. He seemed so pleased to share his thoughts with the whole of Primary.
He’s getting to be so big we can hardly stand it. It’s so fun to hear him bear his testimony with such confidence.
