Dear Little Leah,
Today you gave you first talk in primary; the first of many, I hope.
You knocked my socks off with how well you activated your switch for the intro and closing and you were so calm and reverent while I read the middle part for you.
Who says you can't give a talk just because you can't "talk." Just one more reason you never cease to amaze me.
“If I keep the commandments,
I can live with Heavenly Father again.”
At my house, we have lots of rules. I’m sure you have rules too! Our moms and dads make rules for us to follow so we will come home every day safe and happy. The rules in my house show me that my mom and dad love me and want me to be safe.
Just like our moms and dads, our Heavenly Father has made rules for us to follow too. They are called commandments. If we follow the commandments, we will be happy and can return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus again.
I like the hymn that says, “Keep the commandments, keep the commandments, in this there is safety, in this there is peace. He will send blessings…” I know if we keep Heavenly Father’s commandments, we will be safe and we will be blessed.
I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
