Learning Charity as a Child

Kathleen Davidson Carlisle of the Cottonwood Ward, Afton Wyoming Stake in Fairview, Wyo., was a child when she and her family packed up their household and began the cross-country drive from their home in Atlanta, Ga., to south central Utah where her father, George Davidson, a former minister, had accepted a new assignment.

Sister Carlisle remembers one particular Sunday morning because of the beautiful sounds filling the car of a choir on the radio.

“As I listened to the words to ‘Come, Come, Ye Saints’ my ears strained to hear each word, and unexpectedly, my eyes filled up with tears,” Sister Carlisle remembers. “I looked out of the window and when the choir finished, I asked, ‘Who are those people that sing like that?’”

Some time following their arrival in Utah, the Davidson family visited The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the children began attending Primary. Kathleen’s brother was of Cub Scout age and her mother willingly accepted a call from the bishop to help with Scouts.
