Growing Up a Mormon

Growing Up a Mormon. Meet the Matthews family. Cindy Lou is seven years old. Her brother, Craig, is 11. The twins, Marian and Mark are in their first year at the University. And baby Johnny is born as the book begins. Cindy Lou has many questions about what is happening in her family as everyone participates in priesthood ordinances and living the gospel. Her parents explain the concepts on her age and vocabulary level in this very interesting and readable story. She learns about faith, repentance, forgiveness, prayer, Sabbath-day conduct, preparation of a talk, the form of language of prayer, missionary work and the importance of temple marriage. The priesthood ordinances of blessing a baby, receiving the Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthood, and blessing the sick are explained, and Cindy Lou herself is baptized and confirmed. The story also describes Mark’s departure for a mission, Marian’s temple marriage, and instances of administering to the sick for serious illnesses, providing opportunities for parent to explain these events in depth to their children. The vocabulary is simple enough for children from seven to eleven to read alone. The book is a useful supplement to family gospel learning activities and will serve as an effective aid to parents as they answer questions asked by their children.
