Jayden’s First Primary Talk

Jayden was asked to give a talk in Primary today. This was his first time. Even though he was prepared, he clung to me for the first couple minutes and didn’t want to say it. Eventually, he did it and did wonderfully.

Jayden’s Primary Talk Oct. 25, 2009

“Good Morning Friends. My name is Jayden Udall. Today, I am giving my talk today on how “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” teaches us how to be a happy family. Here is a picture of my family: (Show picture)

In the 7th paragraph of “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” it says: “Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.”

To be a happy family, my family has Family Home Evening, we say family prayers, we eat dinner together, and we read the scriptures together.

The following are ways I can help our family be happy: If brothers get hurt, I will help them. I can get my Dad a tissue when he needs one. I can hold my Mom’s hand when she gets a shot. I can share toys with my brothers and get them­­ a toy to play with if they are sad. After my new brother is born, I can help him to be happy by getting him a blanket when he is cold. I can send Nanny a package that says: To Nanny, from Jayden, I love you and I miss you. Inside the package, we can put a necklace that I made.

The scriptures tell us how to be happy. In JOHN chapter 15 verse 12 it says: “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”

I would like to bear my testimony that I know this church is true. Heavenly Father created families so that we can be happy. We can help our family to be happy when we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”
