I couldn't be more proud.

Two weeks ago at church, Bree apparently asked her Primary president when it would be her turn to talk into the microphone (Sunbeams usually just get asked to pray, but not give talks).  Sister Mounce smiled, and, pointing Bree in the direction of her secretary, said, "If you want to give a talk, just ask Sister Miller."  Bree went right over and said, "Sister Miller, can I have a talk?"  So Bree came home with a slip of paper that said she would be giving a talk on May 30th.  She was really excited.  When I asked her what she wanted her talk to be about, she just said, "Jesus and Heavenly Father."  Since we're on our second read-through of the Book of Mormon Stories, I pointed to the first story: "How We Got the Book of Mormon," and asked if she wanted to talk about that.  She got all giggly and agreed.  I printed out enlargements of the illustrations, and she's been practicing telling the story for the last few days.  I still can't believe how well she did giving her talk in Primary today.  The microphone wasn't working, but she talked loudly and clearly.  I only had to prompt her a few times, and all the kids were listening quietly as she narrated the pictures I held up.  It was all I could do not to burst with pride, and my parents who were able to come and watch, said the the drive was more than worth it.  I sneakily took my digital voice recorder up to the podium, so I could record the priceless memories (it's not as good as a video, but I was afraid a video camera would be frowned upon at church!).  I put together a slide show of Bree's talk with her pictures (her closing, "In the name of Jesus Christ, amen" got cut off...must find better editing software).

Oh, Megan, that was probably the cutest thing I've ever heard! It's obvious why you're so proud. Tell Bree that she did an excellent job and we are SO proud of her too!

Amen! Bree filled my heart with the spirit of truth and the pride of a truly blessed grandmother.

We will treasure her sweet words for many years to come.

I listened to the entire thing! It was the sweetest sound in the world. I am so glad you have this, Meg. What a priceless keepsake. She could not be more adorable.
