Week 67

Its crazy how time flies!!
Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas. We had lots of fun and I loved talking to my family :)
So now its time for the new year. Make more changes and progress!
I am excited for a fresh start and a fresh view on the year. Its going to be great :)

One thing that really stuck to me this season is the importance of all that Christ did. We wouldn't celebrate Christmas if it weren't for Easter. If He hadn't gone through with the Atonement we wouldn't celebrate His birth into this world.
I love Jesus Christ. He came so humbly and took on all the trials of the world. He overcame it all.
 It's so hard to comprehend all that He went through. But I know He did. I know He knows exacly how we feel through every trial. He loves each of us and that is why He came.

I hope we can strive this year to be even more like Him in all that we do.
I love you all!!
Happy New Year!

Week 66

Hey! Oh My Goodness it's Christmas like this week!!!
I am so excited. We have been caroling all week! And its so fun, and brings such a great spirit. We are softening hearts and finding the elect.

So I have learned I have the most joy just teaching and studying the simple truths of the gospel. Especially the Plan of Salvation. God prepared this plan from the foundation of the world. He knows everything and knows our hearts and desires, He knows what will come out of all our decisions. He just hopes we will follow him so we can return with the most joy.
In Alma chapter 12 I read today the plan of redemption.
"32 Therefore God gave unto them commandments, after having made known unto them the plan of redemption,.."
He tells us the goals he has and the blessings then gives us the things we need to do to fulfill them.
God cares so much, and He gave us Jesus Christ so that we can have an example to follow. He sent the Savior to redeem and heal us. I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and I love this time to think of Him and his humble birth. He has gone below us all and has overcome everything! :)

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas!!
Remember Him!

Week 64

I am so excited for Christmas, this whole month is just my favorite as a missionary. Everyday we get to talk about Christ!!! And people accept us!
A Savior is Born, and I love it. watch BOTH videos on this site, they are amazing.

So I loved the Christmas Devotional that was given last night by the First Presidency. I loved the message of Hope, Peace and Love that the Savior brings.
I truely know and love that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to bring this to us, HOPE, and PEACE
and LOVE.
He loves us and Christ came into the world to Atone for us, to help us and guide us.
He just asks that we Remember Him, Love Him and Follow Him.
Christ was born into this world and He gave us so much! I love Him.
and I hope you all can love and cherish this season to Remember Him as well!!!

Watch those videos and tell me what you think!

Week 63

Hope everyone was stuffed at Thanksgiving and especially with Gratitude for all you have.
Here are some scriptures we pondered this week, I will let you read them yourself.
In the Book of Mormon, Mosiah 2:20, Alma 7:23, Alma 34:38.
I loved how different they all are but all about Gratitude to our God for all he has given us.
I can honestly say I am, but I won't blab on, you have heard gratitude all week but one thing I am extremely grateful for is my family. For all of their support. Letting me leave them for a year and a half straight is hard. That is 2 Christmas', for some 2 birthdays and the daily time together is gone. But I am grateful for still always being there, to send love. Plus they don't have too much longer to wait now.
I am grateful for the Gospel that brings blessings as we live it.
I am grateful for our God, who is the provider and who just loves and protects us. I wouldn't be out here serving others for Him if He hadn't done so much already for me. :)
Life is really Good! God is Good! and The Gospel makes it happen.

I love you all and Grateful for you all too!

Week 62

Heyo! So We are all excited for Thanksgiving! Food all day.
This last week was pretty good, we tracted A LOT! Just knocking door after door. Trying to find those individuals that are ready for the Restored Gospel.
A great thought I had is about the church, about how all the people within it, leaders and such are all weak men. We aren't perfect what so ever, we make mistakes all the time. But the church itself, the organization, and the purpose of the church is pure and true.
God and Christ restored their exact church to the earth to help the children of men. And here it is, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Here  to serve and nourish you with truth from God.
Never, ever let one man keep you from  enjoying the blessings of the Restored Gospel in Christ's Church.
I know that God loves us because He restored His Church. I know a humble man, was called as a prophet and leads and guides the world through revelation from Christ today, Thomas S. Monson. Christ Lives, and I am so grateful for it.
I am grateful for the restored gospel, I am grateful for truth!

What are you all grateful for?
Email me :)

Week 60

Oh Hello! I am 21!
It's the end of another transfer....time is flying. And tomorrow we are getting a 3rd companion! It's going to be party, we will be unstoppable.
So my thoughts have been on the Atonement of Christ a lot this week. We had a Regional Stake Conference and Elder Oaks, Elder Robbins, Sister Reeves and Elder Corbridge talked to us from the General Authorities. Many of thier talks were about having a Christ centered life, repenting and simplifying our lives.
I love that making our lives and the gospel simple and not overwhelming ourself. God made the Gospel simple and we can keep it that way.
I ponderized this week the scripture in Doctrine and Covenants 6:36.
Look unto me in every thought; Doubt Not, Fear Not.
And truly if we put the Lord in all our thoughts, he will remind us and motivate us to do all we can to inherit what He has promised for us. Eternal Life. It's that simple. Look to Christ, his example, his love, his mercy and we,
like Him, can live with God again.

I love you all. I know this is all true, the gospel is true. And by living it we can have eternal joy.

Take Care and enjoy your week :)

Week 59

So this week was Halloween! Hope everyone had a safe night, we had fun at our ward trunk or treat, passed out candy and Book of Mormons haha
A thought I had about this holiday being about the death, it just reminds me about the resurrection. All those skeletons and zombies will be resurrected some day because of Christ :) He covered it all, so that ALL mankind will be resurrected, don't have to do anything to receive that, its a pure gift for everyone. We will all live again, perfected and forever.

I love this thought, that there is so much more after this life but RIGHT NOW is the only moment we can progress and grow the most! Our Eternity hinges on NOW!
So quite wasting time, and get learning. Best place to start, God, learn of Him and our potential to be as Him, because we are his literal offspring.
Acts 17:28     Hebrews 12:9
Heavenly Father cares so much for each one of us, and all He asks is to turn to him, follow him and use His Sons Atonement.

I hope you all can find that and use all the tools he has provided to live with Him again, there is so much JOY in it!

Love you all!

Week 58

So this week was so great, we went to the temple as a mission and enjoyed the spirit there :)

So I just can't help but think of all the blessings I have from the Gospel.
Seriously the knowledge we have from modern revelation is incredible. We have the knowledge of God's full plan for us, why we are here and where we go after this life, many people have no idea about these things!
I just feel so blessed for this knowledge. We know everything we need to know to have peace in this life and to gain salvation in the next.
I can simple say I know what my purpose is here, My purpose in life is to learn all I can to experience all I can, to become as Christlike as I can. And then I am promised a eternal life, forever in happiness. Becoming just as my creator is because I am his literal offspring.
I love the Gospel, to have Faith, to be cleansed through Repentance because that's what constantly makes me better. I love Baptism and the Holy Ghost for that great promise that God will always be on our side to comfort and guide us, because of a promise I make with Him.
He loves us all soo much! SOOO MUCHH!!!
God will love us forever, He will be there forever, and if we do all we can here and now, We can be with Him FOREVER.
There is so much Joy there! and I am just so excited for everything that is to come, and I so hope you all know and gain this knowledge as well!

I love you all, take care and be safe this halloween!

Week 57

Its Fall and Beautiful!
I love getting to step on crunchy leaves!
So this week we got to do a lot, my favorite though was going to clean the temple!! It was the best.

So my thought for this last week is inspired by a sister here in my zone.
Of course it is a human concept but really what are we doing with that time we have! Once its gone, its gone forever! Of course there is more ahead but RIGHT NOW is all we got.
What are we doing with it at this very moment, so thats my thought.
Use it to serve the Lord,
Serve those around you.
Use it to progress and gain knowledge.
Use it to change the world, your world.
Use it to be who you want to be.

I love you all and I hope you take the time to know the one who created you.
