Sammy woke up this morning and said he actually felt different. He lives in a household of adults. He's happy to be growing up. Today is his 13th birthday.
Happy Birthday Sam. Love, Becky
Sammy specifically requested a stocking cap like the one Becky had made for herself. She was happy to accommodate him.
Birthday Sam and big brother, Tom
Young men of the Aaronic Priesthood,
you have been born at this time
for a sacred and glorious purpose.
It is not by chance that you have been reserved
to come to earth in this last dispensation
of the fulness of times.
Your birth at this particular time
was foreordained in the eternities.
You are to be the royal army
of the Lord in the last days.
You are “youth of the noble birthright.”
(Hymns, 1985, no. 255.)
President Ezra Taft Benson
Youth of the Noble Birthright, Ensign, May 1986
