All About Mya

School gets out on the 3rd of June, but yesterday was Kindergarten graduation. It took everything I had to hold back the tears because I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Mya had the best kindergarten teacher. Her name is Mrs Taylor. She did so much for Mya to make her feel special. I was impressed that she collected photos throughout the year and made a photo album for each of her students. She did little things like that all year long that really showed that she cared about each of her students.

Here is the video of the kids singing graduation day. We were sitting in the back, but hopefully you can still hear them singing even though the picture isn't that great.

I am sure that you noticed that Mya lost her front tooth. She lost it on the bus on her way to school. When she got to the school she went to the nurses office and got a tooth necklace to keep it in. Throughout the day she lost the tooth and couldn't find it. She came home upset, but with a solution already planned. She told me that she wrote the toothfairy a letter. Here is what it said...."Dear fare I lost my tooth to Day on the Bus Nurse Caren put in a nucles. it fell out will you ples find it...ples lev a Tret For Me Thac You Your Best Fred Mya Love." She put the note under her pillow. The tooth Fairy wrote her back and gave her some money to buy a treat with.

Testimony

Brothers and sisters, God always provides safety for the soul, and with the Book of Mormon, He has again done that in our time. Remember the declaration by Jesus Himself. "Whoso treasureth up my word, shall not be decieved." - and in the last days neither your heart nor your faith will fail you. (Jeffrey R Holland, "Safety for the Soul," Ensign, Nov 2009)

I had a former semenary student come to me and tell me that he was struggling with his testimony. It has been really hard for me because I have watched him grow and develop over the last two years. His doubts have caused me to reflect on my own testimony and the knowledge that I have of the gospel and what I believe to be true. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testiment of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God that restored the true church back on the earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and that we will be guided and blessed when we follow his counsel. I have a testimony of prayer and that Heavenly Father knows us and our needs and that we will be blessed when we communicate with him and foster that relationship. This church is true!
