Finally, I just wanted to share this quote from Pres Benson. I was doing some reading to prepare for my Relief Society lesson next Sunday and came upon this talk to the children that he gave. One of the things that made me so happy reading this was that, at the time, I was one of the kids he was talking to. I would have been 11 at the time he spoke these words as prophet. And now I am the mother reading these words again:
"Dear child, you are God’s gift to your parents, and the gift your parents can give God is to bring you back to Him sweet and pure and faithful.
He expects your parents and leaders to teach you, to walk beside you, and to be shining examples to you so that you will know the way you should go. They must spend time with you and love you and pray with you and for you."
