Yesterday Evan received his driver's license. I am still in a bit of shock. How could this happen so quickly. It seem as if it were just a short time ago that I held him, so recently from heaven, through that Christmas eve night. His head covered with bruising, his eyelids dark purple and his eye a deep blood red; the aftermath of a difficult delivery. Yet there he slept, the most beautiful and perfect soul. Our family's Christmas gift, safely from God's arms to ours. Now it is our turn to let him go, to grow up and learn those things that must be learned alone. But not quite alone, because I will always be there reminding him to be careful.
I am the seminary teacher of the greatest youth in the world. In our class we study the scriptures, doctrines, and principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Our attendance helps us to put on the "Armor of God" and strengthen our testimony of the Lord, Jesus Christ and our part in Heavenly Father's plan of happiness.
