Not your traditional Mother's Day

Next Sunday, for Mother's Day, the primary children will be singing a song in Sacrament meeting.  This is a standard practice all over the church.  However, this year, we decided to do something a bit different. 

One of our program songs this year that we chose is "We'll Bring the World His Truth".  Every time the children sing it the spirit is SO STRONG in our primary room.  So, we decided to use it as our Mother's Day Song.  This is how it is planned to go:

After the second speaker the bishop will call all the primary children to the stand.  We will have girls on the left and boys on the right. 

Then one of our 8 year old boys will read the scriptures from Alma 56 (paraphrased)
Father, behold our God is with us, and he will not suffer that we should fall; then let us go forth;
  yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.
  And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers saying: We  do not doubt our mothers knew it.

Followed by the most adorable 4 year old boy who will say: "We too have been taught by our WONDERFUL mothers."

Then we will sing our song.  The way we have taught the kids is as follows:
Verse 1:  all
Chorus:  All
Verse 2: Girls
Chorus: All
Verse 3:  Boys
Chorus: All

I wish you could hear them sing this!  When they all come in together for the choruses it reminds me of cymbals being crashed together, there is so much power in their voices.  An when the boys sing the third verse it is as if I am at an MTC.  I tear up every time!  I cannot wait until next Sunday!!
