"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Primary Program~

Raychel was asked several months ago if she would play "If I Listen With My Heart" on her flute for the primary program. She had practice over and over for months. She walks around the house playing it without her music sheet does it perfectly. It is such a beautiful hymn. It has become one of our favorites. This morning as we got to church we set up a little practice with the pianist so she could practice just before the meeting started. She was so nervous. She had a really hard time hitting the notes or playing along. The more she tried the harder it got for her. After they were done the two of us went into another room where she just cried. She was so nervous. I told her how hard she had worked, how great she has sounded, that if she was to pray and ask for help, to remember the notes she has practice the Holy Ghost would help her. She looked so innocent as she asked, "Promise?" I said, "Promise!" After we said a prayr she played it again and did better. When it was her time to play her flute for the program she did perfect! She got every note perfectly! She looked so beautiful as she finished because she knew she had done it!!!
