This is why I feel so passionately about teaching children in my congregations little-people hymns - because the songs stay with them and influence them to do good throughout their life.
David Archuleto was chosen as #2 on American Idol several season ago. Since his American Idol debut, he has become a national star. Recently, he has chosen to serve a mission for my faith, putting a successful career aside for two years to serve the Lord.
I shared this video today in Primary. The children gathered close around my laptop and, I hope, felt the Spirit as David belted a song with which they are familiar. I testified that if they actually learn and feel the songs I and others teach them this year, the songs will become a part of them and influence them the rest of their lives to do good, hopefully like the example singing this song, David Archuleta.
