Grandchildren: Chapter 4

September 20th was my oldest granddaughter, Kerry Lois Leavitt's, 15th birthday. Kerry is a beautiful 15 year old. She is taller than me which isn't hard to be. She appears to have a lot of self confidence and seems to get along with everyone.

I took this picture of her at her brother's pancake breakfast. She was unaware that I was taking it.

She attends young women's and is actve in the church. She is the second oldest of five children.

She is looking forward to when she is 15 1/2 so she can get her driver's permit.  She will make the  second youth driver in her family. 

Below is a picture of her with her family.  This picture is a couple of years old so she's not as tall here. But she is still beautiful.

Kerry had been able to attend EFY (Especially For Youth) for the last couple of years.  She has made new friends and had testimony building experiences at EFY.  A little information on EFY:

"EFY is a youth program with the objectives to encourage, assist, and guide youth participants (ages 14–18) as they strive to “come unto Christ.” EFY creates a setting where youth have the opportunity to develop spiritually, physically, intellectually and socially. EFY programs are held throughout North America every summer and are attended by more than 50,000 youth. Sessions are primarily supervised by young-adult counselors between the ages of 20-25 who are positive role models for the youth. All sessions are directed by adult instructors.

  • Scripture Study
  • Devotionals and Firesides
  • Family Home Evenings
  • Dance
  • Testimony Meeting
  • Variety Show
  • Much more …"
I wish the church had an EFA (Especially For Adults). That would be so cool to be able to experience things like the youth do.

Kerry has a wonderful smile. Her whole face lights up. Sorry, the picture is a little blurry.  Sometimes my phone doesn't take the best pictures.

I love Kerry and her wonderful, lively, loving spirit.  She is one of the strongest spirits that is needed for this day and age. She is a great example to us all.

  1. Ditto, Kerry is such an amazing young woman. Her values are strong and firmly planted. As I watch her interact with her; siblings, cousins, family and many friends she is a beacon of goodness and posses a positive magnetism that pulls people to her. Knowing how her parents have and are raising her she has a brite future. I love her so much, and think that she is the perfect example for all to see and follow.
    We always enjoy the opportunities to get together and spend time doing whatever. It is just good to be together.
    I Love You and cherish the knowledge that we will be together.
    Always and Forever
