Madisen's weekend with Grandma

In October Tanner went to Disneyland with Grandma DeMille and Madisen stayed home. This weekend it was Madisen's turn to have a weekend alone with Grandma. I picked her up from school early and took her over to Grandma's house to go to Utah. They were going to visit Grandma and Grandpa Latimer. She was so excited! While there she got her nails done, visited Aunt Nancy and got all the attention she could get from all her Grandparents. 

On the last night they were their they couldn't find Grandma Latimer's ring. Madisen said a prayer to find it and promised that if Jesus would help them to find the ring she would sing some church songs. A few minutes later Grandma Latimer thought she should check the binder one more time and there they were. Madisen was so excited and said "Grandma I felt the Holy Spirit" and she started to cry. Grandma Latimer gave her the little pink box she kept her rings in and told her that inside that box was faith. You can't see it but it is their as long as you want it in your life.  She has been talking about it over and over since she got home. She has even teared up again a few times. I am so happy that the kids have learned some very important lessons early in their lives. I hope as their mother I am able to help them remember the feelings they have had and help them strengthen their testimonies throughout their lives.
