Sacrament Meeting

Today was our annual Primary Children's Sacrament Meeting. Every fall, the Primary (ages 3-11) put on a program during Sacrament meeting. For me, it is always one of the most fun and most spiritual meetings.

The program began with the children singing 'As A Child of God'. The words are powerful and so inspiring.


♫ I came to earth with power to choose.
Good choices bless me and my family too.
As a child of God, I receive special light:
The Holy Ghost helps me to know what is right.
I feel so safe and happy because
Such feelings of peace come from family love.
As a child of God, I receive special light:
The Holy Ghost helps me to know what is right.
In my own home I’ll happily serve.
I’ll strengthen my family by my good works.
As a child of God, I receive special light:
The Holy Ghost helps me to know what is right. ♫

Our Ward (Congregation) has about 50 Primary children and each one of them had a speaking part. Since CL and I are teachers for the 10-11 year old class, we were able to participate too. Our class was asked the question, "How has keeping the Word of Wisdom blessed your life?" Each child in our class came up with their own answers. Here are some of their answers:

Marlynne - Some of the blessings that I receive from obeying the Word of Wisdom is that I will stay healthy.

Vanessa - The Word of Wisdom says not to smoke or drink alcohol or other harmful substances. We also need to eat healthy foods, drink lots of water and get plenty of sleep. I know Heavenly Father will bless us if we keep the Word of Wisdom.

Emily - When I keep the Word of Wisdom, not only am I happy, but I'm healthy too. I am blessed to to have the Word of Wisdom to guide me.

McKenna - When we follow the Word of Wisdom, it will help us with future challenges in life.

Katie - You get blessings like good health, prosperity and not being addicted when you follow the Word of Wisdom. Your constant companion, if you do what's right, is the Holy Ghost. We all need the Holy Ghost in our lives. Without it, we would be hopelessly lost.

I am so impressed with the rising generation. We are in good hands with these kids and so many others like them.

3 Nephi 9:22 Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as a little child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God. Behold, for such I have laid down my life, and have taken it up again; therefore repent, and come unto me ye ends of the earth, and be saved.
