Easter Sunday- Clay's Blessing Day

This Easter was extra special!  We blessed Clay in our home and also watched General Conference— the solemn assembly commemorating the 200th anniversary of the first vision.  It was a neat day and the silver lining of having church at home was we were able to have parents and most siblings join via zoom that otherwise would not of been there. Here is excerpts from Clay’s special blessing:
