Several young children (under seven or eight) got up to bear their testimonies in Sacrament Meeting today. My son Joshua (three and a half) was fascinated by the six- and seven-year-olds saying “they knew the Church is true.” He turned to me and said, “Daddy, I want to go up there.”
I of course feared the worse — stage fright, talking into the pulpit, rather than the microphone, etc. But up he went, with me holding his hand. He put his mouth right near the microphone and said, “I love Jesus. That’s good.” And he was done and ready to go back to his seat.
It’s really that simple, isn’t it? The Spirit was really quite strong today at Sacrament meeting, and I think my three-year-old felt it. Wow, I feel honored and blessed to be a part of this Church.
