Ariah starts a tradition

Today I bore my testimony, then resumed my seat, took the baby out of Teresa’s hands, and told her it was her turn. The pressure was especially on when Ariah insisted that she wanted to bear her testimony. Of course, our three-year-old wasn’t ready to do so, but Teresa took her up anyway and contented her with the privilege of folding her arms before the congregation, which she did as Teresa bore her testimony. It was cute. At the close of the meeting, the conducting member of the bishopric said that he was in favor of adopting the tradition of having children stand before the congregation and fold their arms. He said, as demonstrated by Ariah, it was successful at seizing the attention of the otherwise unruly children in the chapel.
