Akayla has had the interesting/awesome experience of attending Released Time Seminary (religion classes away from the school) for the past 4 years with her dad as one of the teachers.
It was a little difficult for her to deal with her freshman year. Mostly because some kids were bent on getting her in trouble. You wouldn't believe the stories they told her dad. Luckily he didn't believe them, and she came through stronger than before.
Seminary was her favorite class in high school, and the one chance during the day to walk away from the world and feel the spirit.

She played a beautiful violin arrangement of "My Heavenly Father Loves Me".
She shared her feelings before she started about the base of her testimony being that she knows Heavenly Father knows and loves her.
It was so beautiful and I cried the entire time - which was bad because I was accompanying her!
My girls is all grown up!
