Sunday Reflections: New Year, New Calling

My wife and I were called as Primary teachers, just in time for the new year! We taught the CTR 5/6 year old Primary class today. It's amazing just how close to the Spirit these little ones are.

Today we taught lesson #1, I Can Be Happy When I Choose The Right. I taught the lesson while Laura helped and watched (our now 1 year old!) Ava. The lesson was simple. We learned that Jesus Christ wants us to choose the right so we can be happy. We showed the children pictures of CTR rings and I showed off my own CTR ring.

Olivia shared a story about how she wrote a letter to Jesus. She attached the letter to 2 balloons and released it into the heavens, but it got stuck in a tree. So cute!

So far I'm enjoying this new calling. I know this calling is from God. Teaching kids the gospel is fun and I'm pretty much still a little kid myself. 

 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little achildren, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
 Whosoever therefore shall ahumblehimself as this little bchild, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my aname receiveth me.
-Matthew 18:2-5
