A Child's Simple Wisdom

The other night we were reading scriptures and talking about the Angels that Heavenly Father has sent our family. The boys were participating and interjecting their ideas, and taking turns reading. We weren't paying too close attention to Averie, she was just jabbering away like she always does. Pretty soon, I caught a bit of what she was saying, and I tell ya, it was golden. She was pretending to read the scriptures (which were upside down), and she was essentially bearing her testimony. She was pretending to cry, while "reading", because that's what she has seen when people bear their testimonies. I caught a little of what she said on my cell phone, so here is word for word Averie's sweet testimony...

Today, I learned about Jesus. He was so young. He is around me. I know his name. I love him so much. Families are forever. I love to see the temple, I'm going there someday... When she started singing, the boys and I joined her. You can't resist a beautiful primary song, especially when a four year old is singing it.

So dang cute. Nothing like a forced cry, and those sweet words. A child's simple wisdom.


  1. Ok that is sweet!!! What cute, adorable, sweet kids you have.

  2. I love Averie :) She does have a sweet testimony, it's no wonder that we're told to be like little children!!

  3. I love it Lisa!! She is just to Cute.

  4. The pandora charms started in Copenhagen, Denmark. It then grew into its own industry exceeding the expectations of the original makers.To sum it up, I love this site. I always use it when I am working because it requires zero user input to run for hours, especially once you have rated lots of songs.
