A Message for Children
A Message for My Children on Their First Day of School
Twice each year, in April and October, we have the opportunity to hear the voice of the Lord through His servants in our wonderful general conferences. I give you my personal witness that long before a speaker in general conference makes that long walk to the podium, he or she has invested immense effort, prayer, and study in response to the assignment to speak. Every conference message represents countless hours of preparation and heartfelt pleading to understand what the Lord wishes His Saints to hear. How might our approach to general conference be different if we saw conference as an opportunity to receive messages from the Lord Himself?
Through the words and music of general conference, we can expect to receive personalized answers to whatever questions or problems we might be facing.
If you ever wonder whether Heavenly Father will truly speak to you, I would remind you of the simple yet profound words that our Primary children sing: Teach me all that I must do. As we prepare to hear the word of the Lord, may we diligently seek the Spirit of truth so that when the Lord speaks through His servants, we can understand, become edified, and rejoice together.
Today, you embark on yet another new chapter in your young lives, and as we rode the elevator down from the 17th floor I thought of so many things I wanted to say to you. Things I've already covered in the many conversations we've had leading up to this day, but as a mom can't help but feel the urge to repeat in case you didn't hear me the first time.

I wanted to tell you that I know what it's like to be the new kid. I understand the butterflies in your stomach and wondering if you'll make friends.
I wanted to tell you I understand worrying about finding your way both physically and socially. You'll spend a lifetime finding your way.
A message of love for the Sunday School Children
I wanted to tell you that sometimes the new kid is at a disadvantage simply because he or she is new, but the very fact that you are the new kid is sometimes an advantage in and of itself. I wanted to tell you that since you're the new kid, other kids will be drawn to you. Some won't accept you.

That's OK, as it will be their loss. I wanted to tell you to embrace this new experience with a positive outlook, because while it is all strange and a bit scary today, very soon it will all be routine and familiar. It's the circle of life.
I wanted to tell you to try not to look so nervous. Sometimes the simple act of smiling can be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Children ~ Here's A Message For You!
It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. I believe a smile is worth at least that much. I wanted to tell you that if at any moment today you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, just breathe. You'll be amazed how a couple of deep breaths can help you see things in a whole new light.
I wanted to tell you to remember you only need one good friend. I wanted to tell you how my heart is torn between wanting to keep you home with me all day, where I can love you and protect you, and wanting you to go out there and have experiences I can't provide for you.
