Why I love Fast Sunday

While I am not trying to sound sac-relig or anything, I do have to say that Sacrament meeting on Fast Sunday can be kind of a drag. Reigning in 3 kids for over an hour can be difficult to feel good about, let alone, feel the spirit. Threats of death and destruction to my children often drive me further in the wrong direction. Then one person gets up and makes the whole meeting worthwhile. Usually this is the small kid that reveals some dark secret about how his mom swore at the cat or something along those lines. Or, you have the kid that we had yesterday.

"I'd like to bear my testimony and I know this church is true. I love my mom and dad and I an thankful for Jesus. I know that he came to America and I am thankful that he helped the Americans. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

Sister Beach and I marveled at this and as we giggled, somehow it made the whole meeting complete. I love it.
