Yea Ella!

Ella gave her first talk in primary today! I wasn't sure how she'd do. She had never even been asked to do the prayer or scripture before. She just had to dive right into a talk, which really worried me. I didn't know if she would say anything. I didn't know if she would even stand up at the pulpit. But she did great! I whispered into her little ear and she said every word. I was so so proud! Thank goodness for dance class- it has really helped her be able to get up in front of an audience. A year ago, Ella wouldn't have even stood up there! When she started dance class, she barely would dance since other parents were watching. Now she is a dancing, performing, church talk giving gal:) Its so neat to watch your kids grow and overcome fears.


Yea Ella! Me, Daddy, Aubrey & Cali all watched you today and were just so proud of you. You gave such a great talk about the temple! You are growing up so fast! Here is Ella after church today wearing her "I'm a big girl" grin:)

I am so proud of you, Ella. I wish that I could have been there to hear you talk about the temple.

I love to go to the temple. My husband and I are ordinance workers in the Redland's temple. We love working in God's Holy House every week.

Remember the talk you gave today. Someday you can go to the temple with your sweetheart and be married for time and all eternity like your mom and dad did.
