From the mouths if babes...

This video has been forwarded to me several times. I just kept ignoring it, until this morning I finally watched it. I couldn't take my eyes off of this little girl. She is amazing. I don't care if she memorized it from a Veggie Tales movie or from hearing it so often from her parents. Either way this young girl was inspired by this story. I am posting it here because it is so inspiring.

Maybe I enjoy seeing children speak at the pulpit for church gatherings because I hope that one day my children will be brave enough to speak in church. I see little children get up and bear their testimonies and give talks in sacrament and I get choked up for two reasons: 1) They are so pure and sweet, 2) I long for my children to be able to move past their anxieties and hyper-arousal enough to be able to say what is in their heart one day.

It should be enough that I get to hear and feel the spiritual experiences that they have but, they are so beautiful and inspiring that I wish others could feel of what they know. I'll never forget when Brother was very sick and very scared because he was so sick. He said with great intensity in his eyes, "Mom, my Father will help me." He was referring to Heavenly Father. How sweet those moments are when I know, without a doubt that he has such a strong connection to heaven. Sister and Baby too. It is scary to me, sometimes, to think that heaven is always in my home...

Enjoy this sweet little clip (if you haven't already seen it):
