I was such a proud parent watching her beaming face as she sat at the front of the room with her arms folded, facing her peers. When it was show time, she jumped up, declined an offer for whispered help from a member of the primary presidency (Stephanie Neilson) and proceeded to fold her arms and squeeze her eyes shut tight. I kept my eyes open and took in her concentration as she prayed, "Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Thank you for please bless the Gospel. Thank you for Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." She had told me earlier in the day that she was going to say the words "Gosple," and "Jesus Christ" in her prayer (that's her bringing out the big guns because she always gets a good reaction when she uses those words in her prayers at home). It was so touching and adorable, after adding my own, "Amen," I let out a laugh/sob. I've never done that before. I love her so much. I love the personality and testimony she's developing. I want to remember her this way forever.
