Simple Things

 

Today Brea and I went to the Stake Activity Day. We started off by trying to put together a few oragami shapes. It was a lot of fun. The theme for day was small things. They explained how a testimony is usually not built by a large event. It is strengthened by several small ones. We started off by learning to play I am a child of God on hand chimes. We discussed how beautiful one chime was, but how significate the sound can be coupled with several. Nice lesson.

 

Next we listened to Sis Clason talk about the Liahona and how through diligence Lehi and his family were able to steer their coarse. She then sent them out to follow a liahona to receive a reward. She is an amazing teacher.

 

You can see the beautifully decorated table by a manzanita bush covered with oragami art. I wish you could see the detail. It was beautifully simple.

 

What wonderful ladies we have to model our teaching after.

Wow! That is so above our activity days. Makes me a little glad to be out of it-not to have to follow that kind of act.

This is what the Stake does once a year. When you only do it once a year you can go out a little more.

It was so fun to be able to be Brea's mom last year at this event! I'm glad you both had a good time!
