First of all.... my daughters are turning into missionaries extraoridinaire! They don't even ask me anymore if they can take a paperback copy of the Book of Mormon to give to one of their friends. They just take them. We're running low on our copies in the house.
They'll just say, "So and so needs a Book of Mormon."
Or... "So and so doesn't go to church, I'm going to give them a Book of Mormon." Sweet!
Allison even had a conversation with classmates at school that went something like this:
Classmates: "What's that book?"
Allison: "The Book of Mormon."
"What's it about?"
"It's a history of people that came to America a long time ago."
"Why is it called the Book of Mormon?"
"He was the one that put all the records together, so it's named after him."
"What was his last name?"
"I don't know, maybe that was his last name!"
Hello.... I was not having conversations like this until I was 21 and on my mission! I see evidences all the time of Heavenly Father saving his most choice spirits for these last days. I'm very privileged to have them living in my house!
Next: Tommy! He has had extreme likes and dislikes since the day he was born. His latest craze is his friends! Oh my, how he loves his friends! Especially the ones from the CTR 7 class. He's asked for a transfer in Primary, but it was declined. He noticed my friend's blog, where she had taken a picture of her son with his friend. Now Tommy insists on a picture with his friend whenever they come over! He's so happy in these pictures!
And... this is a huge miracle- Tommy is learning to read! I didn't think it would be possible during this year of school. He has had an amazing team of teachers and has been able to have a lot of one-on-one help this year. Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts and prayers on his behalf! We just saw his grades for the 3rd term, and WOW! He has grown and learned so much this year. We are so blessed with this sweet boy of ours.
