Monica Scott and Anji Branch - Primary ChildrenIs there anything on this side of Heaven that is more cherubic than the sweet melodious voices of innocent children singing songs of praise to their Savior? Is it any wonder that the Savior taught, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14.) And He also admonishes us, “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me” (Matthew 18:4,5.)

It surely must cause our Heavenly Father to smile, as well as, light up the faces of those in the Heavenly choir, as they hear little children bear their simple testimonies as they sing songs such as “He Lives and He Loves Me.” The song is a beautiful collaboration between Monica Scott and her friend Anji Branch. Nick Sales was the videographer for the video, Anji Branch conducted, Monica Scott accompanied on the piano, Kristi Jenkins was the violinist, and the vocals were provided by the Branch, Green, and Scott children. A music video with lyrics is also available for watching. The video was published on 9 April 2017 on Monica Scott’s YouTube channel and has garnered over 3,600 views.
