The Sunbeam Talk

Our sweet S is a Sunbeam! She has great teachers, an energetic single college girl and an amazing young grandmother who teaches at the local elementary school. Since neither Mister nor I have attended primary since we were 11 years old, we're going to have to brush up on the new Children's Songbook.

She recently got the "I'm giving a talk next week" sticker, and we just stared at each other in fear. Having not prepared (nay, even witnessed) a primary talk in nearly twenty years, how do we do this?! Then we read the theme assignment: "Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer." For a Sunbeam? Oh my.

I spent a brief moment looking up cutesy and rhyming talks online, but eh. Instead, I simply flipped through our gospel image binder and had a conversation with my girl to help her "write" her own. It is still the only talk we've ever seen, so I don't know if we got it right. It sure was precious to us, anyway.

She bravely and proudly spoke right into the microphone as her daddy held up the pictures and whispered reminders in her ear:

Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer.

Jesus Christ healed the sick.

Jesus Christ was a good friend.

Jesus Christ loves the little children.

Jesus Christ is my brother and my friend. He loves me and I love Him.

(That's S on the left and Jesus on the right. "We're holding hands," she says. "And that's food in our tummies.")

Um... that may be the sweetest thing I've ever seen.
I'm serious.

Food in the tummies?! You've gotta be kidding me! A child after my own heart. Ideally we'd always be holding hands with Jesus and have food in our tummies. Oh man, I can't wait for talking/drawing children!
