Emma has always been on the slow side when it comes to speaking. When she and Jared moved out to Vegas two years ago she hardly spoke a word. It took her physically getting out from under Benjamin’s shadow, for him not to speak for her, for her to start understanding how important it was for her to be able to talk. Now it’s all we can do to get her to stop speaking or singing so that someone else can get their two cents in 🙂 .
I was so pleased when Emma volunteered to give the talk in Primary today. She did such a great job and I’m so happy that she’s talking so much more. I was impressed by how at ease she was. If she was nervous she showed no signs of it! I think it helped to have a very simple talk, but a lot of it was her confidence.
…my daddy. This is my brother Joseph. This is my brother Benjamin. This is me. And I have a brother Jacob.
My family loves me, and I love my family. Heavenly Father gave me this family. We can be together forever.
I say these things, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
