Welcome to our New Primary Presidency!

Change can be good and scary all at the same time, new faces, new names, new situations, new personalities and new ways of doing things. Each new thing helps us grow in unexpected ways. Always remember that you are unique individuals, with your own set of talents and weaknesses. Develop and use your talents to the fullest and acknowledge weaknesses, lean on each other as you grow and develop. For when we magnify our callings to their fullest, The Lord promises he will help us develop our talents further and make our weak things strong. Use your talents to make your calling your own, something unique to you and your Presidency and you will be successful beyond your wildest dreams.

Our Primary children are precious and very special, they are eager to be loved and to learn from you. Being a part of this new Primary Presidency will bring everyone associated with it wonderful experiences and many blessings.

Sister Davidson

I grew up in York, PA with one brother and two sisters and earned a Cosmetology degree from Signature Beauty Academy in Red Lion, PA. While my brother served in the military, I had the opportunity to live with him at his various stations in England, Germany, California and Kansas. I’ve also lived in various cities in Maryland and Laurel, Delaware. I have one adult son, Zachary. I enjoy reading, word find games and going to the beach. Spending time with my friends is also important to me.

For three years I investigated the church, however once I met my husband and we were married I began to understand and accept the gospel in a whole new way and was baptized on 11 April 2014. I often wonder who the student is as I teach these precious children as there is no greater way to learn than to teach. Watching the children learn the scripture stories, understanding through their eyes and seeing the “aha” moment is precious and dear.

Teaching - Improving - Loving

A little tidbit from the "Teaching, No Greater Call" Manual

It is often easier to understand a gospel principle when it is expressed as part of a scriptural story. Stories engage people’s interest and show how gospel principles apply in everyday life. In addition, stories are often easier to remember than abstract statements of principles. (For suggestions on sharing stories, see “Stories,” pages 179–82.)

A scriptural story may contain many principles and applications (one example is the book of Enos, which contains only 27 verses but illustrates many gospel principles). You will need to decide which of these you will highlight in the stories you use.

It is often helpful for learners to read a story aloud together, taking turns reading (see “Read Aloud,” page 56). If the story is long, it is usually best to summarize it, having learners read a few key verses at important points in the story. Chapter or section headings can be helpful when you prepare and present summaries.
