Here are a few things that can help you this morning.
1. Take a few minutes and say a prayer.
2. Eat breakfast.
3. Wear something comfortable.
4. Get ready to smile! It's all going to be wonderful!
On the Sunday of the program the children sit down in their chairs and face the audience. What yesterday was a big empty chapel, today is filled with people. They look out at parents, grandparents, cousins, ward members and visitors. Suddenly they realize just how many people come to church and their hearts start to beat fast too. They get a little nervous and scared. But who do they see? Who is looking back at them with a smile? It's you! They love you!
Suddenly with a prompt and a huge smile, they sing for you. Some will sing loud, too loud maybe. Some will whisper. Some will fidget. It's okay. It's really okay. We aren't going for perfection here, we are aiming for the spirit and children singing brings the spirit like nothing else. Let them sing their way, and from their hearts and they will bring the spirit.
It's going to be a wonderful day!
