My daughter

Our daughter, Diana is a wonderful blessing in our lives. She is an excellent example to her brother and sister and is warm and kind to everyone. A week ago she came up to me and said "Mom I finished the Book of Mormon!" (she has been reading the kids version from the church distribution) I was like "WOW that is wonderful sweetheart. I am so proud of you." This version of the children's book of Mormon reader is 137 pages and used for primary, FHE, etc. Then she says "Mom can I read the real Book of Mormon now? I liked it and want to finish it before my baptism." "Of course you can!" I said.

Diana has such a gift for listening to the spirit. When she was in sunbeams she would tell the other children in her class to please be quiet so she could listen to the teacher. Still today she does the same. I was not as diligent and willing to listen as she is at this age. I am amazed at this little girl who entered my life almost 8 years ago and has enriched every part of it. The kids that us mothers today have the privilege of raising are amazing and were meant for the latter-days. Hold your kids close and let them know you love them everyday because everyday with them is a gift from our heavenly father.

That is so sweet! You are so blessed to have a girl like that and especially as your oldest child. She will definitely set a good example for her younger siblings.
