I’m currently working on a much more detailed post, but I had to share this right away!
This morning on the way to preschool, my son, Anthony, told my husband “the church is a house of God. That’s what it says in Mommy’s book.” It came without prompting from either of us, completely out of the blue.
I cannot tell you how thrilled this made me when I heard it! We’ve read the book at home a few times, but Anthony hasn’t seemed all that interested in it quite yet. That’s been fine with me honestly, seeing as he’s only 2 ½ right now, but knowing that some part of it stayed with him after just those few read-throughs lets me know that it will become something we can share later. Teaching my son about the temple was one of my hopes as I worked on this book. Hearing his sweet voice echoing back to me such a powerful truth touched my heart and brought on a smile today that I haven’t been able to wipe off.
