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.

Week 56

Oh my this week was great.
We did a lot of service, and had Zone Conference and got to learn and grow with other missionaries. Also this week was just so great because we had fun together. I am just so happy.

Something I keep being reminded of is how not so happy I was in high school. I really just hid from the world and slept forever and just watched movies to just get away. I hasn't too happy. I had insomnia and I find now that the gospel has made a huge difference. Of course becoming curious and trying to be active my senior didn't have immediate results, but slowly over time, all those issues went away. I had energy and purpose. And now I am just over joyed with all the blessings the Lord has given me.
I still have ups and down in happiness each day but even my worse is better than my highs in high school.
Just as the Lord says,
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteous. -Isaiah 41:10
And my favorite,
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. -St. John 14:27

I know that Christ and his Gospel can heal. I know by keeping all that the Lord has commanded we can become as Him. I know He can make all things right as they should. And most of all I know He can give us JOY.
I love our Savior, I love our Father in Heaven who has created this plan.
And I love his Gospel which is provided to guide us.
I hope you all can find this as well.
Be Happy!
Love you all TONS!

Week 55

Hey! This week as been so much fun!
Things were crazy but we had a lot of fun, I love my golden girl. Sister Wilhelmsen. :)

So alright most important is the amazing things the servants of the Lord have spoken. There were so many great talks, I am just happy to know that prayers can be answered.
I went into conference with quite a few questions about various things, I prayed and told Heavenly Father my concern about each one. And each one was answered either by the speaker themselves or by the Spirit whispering to me. I love it.
Couple of talks that stood out to me:
Elder Larry R. Lawrence of the 70 talked about the things we need to steadily improve, How the Spirit can give us what we can work on it we ask sincerely and humbly "What Lack I yet?
I tried this and it works, I was given one thing to work on, not overwhelming but enough to pinch you into improvement.
Also Elder Devin G. Durrant, I loved the idea of ponderizing, we already kind of do that on our missions but now there is a word for it, haha. So right now I am ponderizing D&C 100:15, all thing will be worked out for their good if we are righteous and if it is for the Lord's church.

I'm sorry this is all somewhat dull but I really do love the inspiration of our leaders, of course there is so many more favorites I have from conference but I do hope you all watched it.
If not, just watch a talk a day!!! Like 15 mins each about....about. But I promise they are worth it, it's the words of the Lord just for you. He knows you and wants to guide you, you just have to listen.

I love you all and I hope you can grow from these inspired words.
