'I am a Child of God' Author Naomi Randall Dies
Naomi Randall, longtime leader in the LDS Church's primary organization and author of what is arguably the most beloved LDS hymn, died Thursday, May 17th at her daughter's house in La Mesa, California. Sister Randall said that the lyrics for 'I am a Child of God' came to her in answer to prayer about writing a new song for Primary General Conference. The song has since moved beyond the Primary to be used in all LDS services, not just those for children. Sister Randall was 92.
