Gracie's First Talk

video
In our church (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) the children ages 3-12 go to primary, which is kind of like Sunday school specifically for children. Each Sunday two children give talks in primary closing exercises. Today Gracie got to give her very first talk ever. It was an exciting thing in our home! She was asked a week in advance to give her talk and I think she had the talk written about a half an hour after she was asked. She was that excited. James tried to help her write it, but every time he suggested something she'd say "No dad, I want to say this". She knew EXACTLY what she wanted to say. So I hope you enjoy Gracie's talk, written all by herself, with only a little bit of help from her dad in order to make it more fluent. She worked hard all week memorizing it and she spoke loud and clear so that everyone could hear her even at the back of the room which was quite a feat given that the microphone wasn't working. What a joy this girl is!
