#LDS Primary Nursery Lesson at home – I Can Take Care of My Body

Because Kyrie is on medical precautions, she is unable to attend nursery class during primary at church.

But she doesn’t want to miss out on her sunday school lessons, so we have class at home!

This week was especially poignant, since it was all about taking care of our bodies.

That’s a big lesson for a tiny girl on oxygen, and a gtube, and a hearing aid, and with so many medical complications because of her body not working well at all.

But the lesson manual has great tips for making it sensitive in such cases, and we had a blast focusing on all the things her body can do and remembering that the medical stuff is part of caring for her body, and she is very good at it!

At first hesitant about this lesson, Kyrie ended up having a blast and making me laugh and cry all at once.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
