The best feeling

is when your kids make you proud. My Little Prince gave a talk in church today and did the most fabulous job. The bishop even called our house tonight to tell me:
  • what an outstanding young man James is,
  • that even an adult couldn't have done a better job,
  • that he hit every point he was asked to while keeping the congregation interested and engaged in what he was saying,
  • and that he, the bishop, respects and appreciates James.

Several people commented to me after church about what a great job James did.

It's a nice feeling to be proud of your kid for doing something hard with a good attitude and a considerable amount of skill. It adds to that feeling a bit when other people recognize that you have a good kid.


  1. Way to go, James. Keep up the good work. And, be ready to give me your talk the next time I see you.

  2. Congratulations James. He's very personable and he'll be a great missionary one day!
