Primary: 'Every child is precious'

Every child is precious and every child is capable of feeling the Spirit. It is as Joseph Smith said, "All the minds and spirits that God ever sent into the world are susceptible of enlargement" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 354).

Primary leaders are learning to make accommodations and adaptations for children with disabilities in their wards and branches, creating a welcoming atmosphere that allows these unique children to be included in classes, sharing time and activities where they can grow in the gospel along with their peers. Not only are children with disabilities blessed by these efforts, but also families are strengthened and additional blessings are realized by the children, teachers and leaders who love and serve with these children.
