Joys of Primary

Last Sunday I was teaching my 5 and 6 year old primary kids about prophets. I told them that only a man could be the prophet. I was trying to prompt them a bit so the following conversation occured.

"Why can only a man be the prophet?"

silence

"What is something that only a man can have?"

silence

"It starts with a P?"

Luckily, silence.

As I realized what the most obvious, but incorrect, answer was I quickly prayed that the kids wouldn't yell it out and further prompted them "It is a long word that starts with a P that only men in the church can receive . . . "

Finally a little girl yelled out PRIESTHOOD!

I was so relieved and we quickly moved on to another subject. phew.

Cute! I love Primary kids. I taught the 5 year old boys after my Freshman year of college and it was so fun. Difficult at time, but fun. Now I get to play in Nursery.
