This has been a difficult, yet wonderful week full of changes. I am very sad to report that I have been released as primary chorister. I love this calling, and have put my whole heart into it. I am going to miss singing every week with the primary. It has been a source of sweet joy. I wanted to give my primary children a sweet farewell, so put together this little basket of “hugs and kisses”.
I printed the scriptural reference of Doctrine and Covenants 25:12 on adhesive full-sheet label paper, then cut into strips and punched out as 1/2″ circles to stick onto the bottom of the candy. I plan on popping into primary for a couple minutes to share the scripture, express my love and testimony, then hand out some hugs and kisses. I will encourage the children to take the sticker off their candy and put on their shirts, to look up the scripture later at home. I have the download available here, if you’d like to print out some of your own self-made stickers.
Best of wishes to all you choristers out there. I have loved sharing a little of my calling with you!
“For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads.” D&C 25:12
So sad! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Shoot! I'll miss your wonderful posts. Good luck in the next phase of your gospel life!
I will miss your posts too. What a sweet little reminder for the kids as your goodbye. Good luck with whatever the Lord has in store for you next!
Thank you so much for all of your ideas and inspiration…I have really learned a lot from you. I know you will be amazing in whatever calling you have, but primary will surely miss you! Good luck!
AAACCKKKK! I will miss you Kristin. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas with all of us. Good luck in your next calling. Change is always exciting.
Best wishes to you. Thanks for sharing!
Oh no! I have used several of your great ideas. Your blog was the first place I looked when I needed a little inspiration. Thank you so much!
Wow… I know this is a late entry (5 months after your release), but I wanted to let you know that I think Primary chorister is the VERY BEST calling in the Church! I recently served for 5 years as the Primary chorister, and like you I had such fun with the children. I tried very hard to have fun creative activities with them every week and make singing time memorable for them. My son (who is 37 this year) is inactive, but while visiting my home a few years ago began singing along to some of the primary songs while I played them on the piano at home. I stopped and said, "I am amazed that you haven't forgotten those songs!" He replied, "Mom, you NEVER forget Primary songs!" I hope that the message and spirit of Primary songs will continue to stay with him and someday bring him back to the arms of the gospel! Thank you for all you do to serve in the Lord's Church.
