Fender Bender and Transfers

Posted on Updated on

My goodness y’all this has been a great and crazy and calm week! (:

Can I first just say, I’M SO EXCITED!

Y’all! I’m finally getting transferred! I’m freaking out in a good way. Don’t get me wrong, I am sad because I am leaving. But I feel like I have done all I can in Hoover. My time is up! And I’m completely okay with that.

Transfers are this Wednesday so y’all will find out where I am next week! Unless you ask my mom at the end of this week! (:

So anyways. This week! Sister Dormer got sick on Tuesday, it was a restless night for the both of us! But that’s okay, I told her the next morning that it made me have a flash ‘forward’ to when I have kids….that was a little weird haha…

But! We stayed in Tuesday and Wednesday because she was not doing well. But she is better now. (:

Now skipping to Friday, we had district meeting in the mission home! Finally! But before that, this is where I told my mom not to freak out, we got hit! How crazy is that! We were just chilling in our car, PARKED IN A STALL, when a moving truck side scraped us! That was fun. They took complete blame for it though. Yay! It tore the rear bumper, right side, completely off! Ha. Our nice looking car doesn’t look so nice anymore! BUT we joke that we fit in with the rest of Alabama now! Ha.

Saturday we got to see the General Women’s Broadcast! Wow oh wow was that just amazing!? It makes me so so SO excited for General Conference! Made me cry! I am so glad to be a member of our Heavenly Father’s ETERNAL family. I am HIS daughter. And oh what a blessing it is to be his daughter!

Well that is about it for me this week!

Y’all will be hearing from me next week when I am out in the boonies somewhere! šŸ˜‰

Have a great week y’all!

This past week has been so great! The Lord has really been with me and I have felt him.

I know I’ve been having a hard time lately but all the prayers y’all have been saying have really been helping! Thank y’all so much! (: This week was the ‘spiritual boost’ I needed to get going again. I didn’t mention last week because I forgot, but we went to the temple again last Tuesday! Such a fantastic boost! For those of you who have not been to the temple in a while, Y’ALL NEED TO GO!!! I’m not even kidding, it will bless your life and you will feel the Lord in your life.

The Lord has also sent people in my path that either needed my influence or I needed theirs. He is answering my prayers! (:

Yesterday during the sacrament, it was the first time in a while that I really felt the Spirit speak to me during the sacrament. The sacrament is a blessing! Remember to use Christ’s Atonement. He did that sacrifice for US. Even the smallest of sins need to be repented of. But as long as we CONTINUE to do better each day, God will bless us.

This ‘spiritual boost’ that I needed has been an encouragement from God. He is encouraging me to keep going and that everything will work out. (: I AM A CHOSEN SERVANT TO TAKE PART IN THE HASTENING OF THE WORK.

Oh and my mom wanted me to put on this web address of my blog I guess. So if you are interested take a look! (:

Also there is a mission blog too here is that address:

I love y’all so much and I hope this week is a splendid spiritual uplift!

Strong Faith

How are y’all doin this week!?

I forgot to mention last week that I got a package from some family friends, the Jepsens! And it was a total surprise! It was most appreciated though. (:

So I had been sitting here for a little while wondering what I could say about this week. And I realized, about keeping your faith.

My faith has been tried this past few weeks and I didn’t even realize it. Because I had honestly asked, ‘Why am I in the Bible Belt? I do NOT know the scriptures, this is too hard.” And Sister Dormer and I were talking about it because we talk about EVERYTHING ha. She told me, that she doesn’t think the Lord sends people who know the scriptures to the south, but people who are strong in their faith and will not waver from all the anti and bible bashing. Now I’m not saying to all my other missionary friends who are not serving in the south don’t have strong faith, because I KNOW y’all do! But I’m just saying that, the Lord knows us. He truly does. He knows the desires of our hearts and he knows when we are hurting. HE LOVES US and he knows what is best for us. (:

So there is my mini spiritual thought. šŸ˜‰

I also wanted to say that Sister Dormer and I helped out in the mission office this past week. It was so much fun! (: Ha

Oh and another thing! I cut my hair! Crazy, who would have ever thought! But I cut about 5-6 inches off! Wow is it so much shorter! But I have gotten used to it now. (: It’s alright, but I can’t wait for it to grow back out!

Oh, and my Ukrainian neighbor randomly gave us a couch? We have to get rid of it but for the time being, we thought we would use it! (:

Well, I love y’all and I know y’all are blessed! Remember to strengthen your faith everyday and to stay close to the Lord! (:

Have a blessed week!

It’s Not a Religion, It’s a Relationship

Posted on Updated on

This week has been, interesting.

It started out a little rough, but once Wednesday hit, It was very good! (:

But also, as of right now I have a love hate relationship with the South and with the Bible. I love the South, do not get me wrong. I LOVE the south. (: People just can not get over the Bible. To them it is ‘the one and only truth.’ But really? NO! The Bible contradicts itself…Whereas, the Book of Mormon is straight to the point and isn’t very confusing. I love the Bible because it IS the word of God, as long as it is translated correctly. I also love the Bible because it as strengthened my love and testimony of the Book of Mormon. If any y’all have not read the Book of Mormon, I suggest you do so! And then do as Moroni directs in Moroni 10:3-5. His promise about the Book! (:

Life is good though. IĀ  have been in the south for 5 months now!? Crazy. Time really is flyin!
I hope y’all are doin well though and have a fantastic week! I know I will, the weather is so beautiful and warm now! Hopefully it stays like this until summer…which by then will be like HADES! /: I’m just OOBER excited. šŸ˜‰
Love y’all so much!

The Cure to Stress is Work!

Posted on Updated on

This week was good, a bit of a struggle til we got to Sunday. Sunday was very good, but I am going to first talk about the other days. We have been teaching this 16 year old named Kristina who has been to church 3 times now but she is scared to talk to her parents about getting baptized. We are trying to set something up this week to meet with the parents, because she wants to get baptized. I can see it! She already has a testimony of the Book of Mormon! She knows it’s true. It was so amazing, she made me want to leap for joy when she told me that. Of course, I didn’t, but I wanted too! (:

So Saturday was a bit of a struggle. During my personal study I decided to study ‘diligence.’ And with doin so, I found out I have not been as diligent as I should be. So when I talked about it with Sister Dormer we made a goal as a companionship to be more diligent this week and to keep our minds focused on the work as much as we possibly can! (: And then came Sunday! The beautiful Sabbath! By the way, it was 82 degrees yesterday and the day before that like 70 somethin! And today is now an overcast rainy cold day of 35 degrees… /: BUT ANYWAYS! yesterday we made most of our goals for the week! We had half of our lessons taught yesterday for our entire week and get this, we made 10+ unplanned contacts yesterday! It was amazing. (:

I’m so excited for this week and to put my goal to the test! I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and he is listening AND answering our prayers. Stay close to our Father y’all. HE WILL BLESS YOU!

P.S. I met a Japanese woman this week and it made me think of my brother. (: It was so cool! She was really old haha.
