One of my granddaughters just turned five.  She got a jumprope for her birthday, among other things.  He mom posted this today on FB:


I should have done this when I was 5...I had a heck of a time.  A child's miracle is just the best and most sincere kind.

And for what it's worth, here's a snippet describing an experience from my mission:


A young mother had come to church with her toddler daughter, who had a condition similar to mine, with neurological and musculoskeletal components.  Her daughter was in obvious distress, and mom asked my companion and me to administer to her.  We were simply conduits, witnesses more than participants; as sure as I am that the Lord loves and looks after His missionaries, I know that this is truer by orders of magnitude of others of His Sheep, such as that wee ewe lamb and her mother sheep.  The former was writhing and crying in pain, which ceased almost the moment we laid our hands on her head: not only could we see her relax, but the reaction was palpable – as was the Spirit on this occasion, as well.

As I said, for what it's worth. :) 

Here's Elder Neil L. Anderson from the October 2008 Semiannual General Conference:



Hadley Peay is now seven years old. Hadley was born with a very serious hearing impairment requiring extensive surgery to bring even limited hearing. Her parents followed with tireless training to help her learn to speak. Hadley and her family have cheerfully adapted to the challenge of her deafness.  

Once, when Hadley was four, she was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store with her mother. She looked behind her and saw a little boy sitting in a wheelchair. She noticed that the boy did not have legs.  

Although Hadley had learned to speak, she had difficulty controlling the volume of her voice. In her louder voice, she asked her mother why the little boy did not have legs.  

Her mother quietly and simply explained to Hadley that “Heavenly Father makes all of His children different.” “OK,” Hadley replied.

Then, unexpectedly, Hadley turned to the little boy and said, “Did you know that when Heavenly Father made me, my ears did not work? That makes me special. He made you with no legs, and that makes you special. When Jesus comes, I will be able to hear and you will get your legs. Jesus will make everything all right.”


Elder Neil L. Anderson (Nov. 2008) "You Know Enough," address delivered at the 178th Semiannual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City, UT: Proceedings published in Nov. 2008 Ensign and accessed on line at https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2008/10/you-know-enough?lang=eng on August 2, 2018.

"Out of the mouths of babes." 

3 Nephi 26:14: "And it came to pass that he did teach and minister unto the children of the multitude of whom hath been spoken, and he did loose their tongues, and they did speak unto their fathers great and marvelous things, even greater than he had revealed unto the people; and he loosed their tongues that they could utter."

Regarding the then-young Hadley, from Elder Andersen's account, above: "Master, who did sin, this young girl or her parents, that she was born deaf?  Neither hath this young girl sinned, nor her parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in her."  Indeed.  See John 9:1-25.
