It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

Tiffany Singing...

Today Tiffany had the chance to sing at a Stake Activity Days Activity. The activity was awesome. It was based on 4 commitments the Stake Primary Presidency wants the girls
ages 8-12 to be making in their lives.
(Click on the links if you would like more information on these programs)
1-To earn their Faith in God award (This is an award given to girls in the church when they turn twelve if they have accomplished all the tasks set forth in the Faith in God Program.)

2-To earn their Young Womanhood Recognition (This award is given when Young Women between the ages of 12 and 18 fulfill all requirements set up in the Personal Progress Program. This program requires more than 70 hours of service and a number of other goals and activities in 7 different value areas. The idea is to help the Young Women to set and achieve goals in their lives and to bring them closer to the Savior.)

3-To Graduate from Seminary (Seminary is a four year scripture study program in our church. It coincides with the high school years and youth attend a 1 hour class each day where they study the scriptures. In our area this class takes place before school at 6:00 am so it takes a great deal of dedication and commitment to graduate, but a lot of kids do it.)

4-To get Married in the Temple (We believe that when you are married or Sealed in the Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints your family will be bound together for all of eternity.)

Tiffany sang as part of the Young Womanhood Recognition Award portion of the program and here is her performance as recorded by her dad.

She did an excellent job. I am so proud of her. They closed the program with this video presentation about 3 White Dresses: A Blessing Dress, Baptism Dress and Wedding Dress. Each dress symbolizes a special time in the life of a female in the church. It is really beautiful so take a minute to watch.
