Maya's Talk

Before you go any further you will need to scroll down to my music player and pause it so you can see/hear this.

A couple of months ago Maya was asked to give a talk at church in front of all the kids 8-11 yrs old. Her topic was "Heavenly Father sent me to my family". She wanted to write her talk all by herself. This is her talk. She is sideways because I filmed her sideways and I can't figure out how to make it right side up. So once you get passed that minor little detail, you will need to brace yourself for some serious preciousness....yes that is a word.

She is so wise in her understanding. I am amazed. Out of the mouth of babes.

I just met Camden for the first time about 30 minutes ago at Evelyn's and got to hold him for a while! Thank you for that! I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

My sweet little Maya. That is so like her; pure and unspotted from the world. It is no wonder Abuelita & papa Joe love you so much. Thank you Jess, for sharing this special talk with all of us, who don't get to see those precious girls daily.

Dear Maya,
That was so perfect. What an amazing girl you are. I love how you wrote that all by yourself and you shared with us how you felt the Spirit. I am crying right now...but it is a good cry ☺.
