She is the Night.

 

Hello Everyone!

 

This week was so amazing! It was also so busy! We got to give a youth devotional Sunday night for the youth on James 1:5. We did a lot of finding and were able to reap the benefits of the past couple weeks. We also got to help someone move! ‘Twas a good week. The title of this blog post comes from a young man who said I was really quiet walking around…

Our District

Sister Thomas left our district this week, so sad. But we love our new Sister, Sister Stepherson.

One of my favorite miracles is the “G” family. The father requested a Bible, and we set up a time to deliver it. In our lesson, they were so engaged and agreeing and relating well to the Restoration of the gospel! They had both met missionaries before and had even been to a church service once before. It was just such a miracle to finally be able to find not just one, but three people who are actively seeking to know if this is true. I am so thankful to be able to say that this is true! I have prayed about it and am so thankful for the witness of the Holy Ghost that reaffirms my testimony every time I read from the scriptures! I am also so thankful for the guidance of the scriptures, especially James 1:5 which says,

 

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

 

Our Heavenly Father is a very active God. He wants us to find answers to our questions, he wants us to have peace. Keeping the commandments can help us to find greater peace in this life and avoid things that can bring us sorrow and stain our soul. But sometimes we have questions that stay with us, that eat at us and make it difficult to feel at peace. I’ve had them, especially figuring out if I should come back out in the mission field.

 

The scriptures, like English muffins, are so jam packed with goodness (Did you like my “dad joke,” Dad? It made me chuckle.). In all seriousness though, God wants us to find answers and be at peace. The scriptures have the answer. If you have questions, ask God. Then read the scriptures He has provided. I promise that as you do this and pay keen attention to the promptings of the Spirit, you will know, without a doubt, of your Father’s love. And you will have the quiet assurance to do what you know is right. Many times we already, deep down, know the answers to our questions, but it takes humility to ask for and accept guidance from God. My advice?

Remember how much your Heavenly Father loves you.

 

I love you.

“M” (a recent convert) came out to teach with us at an appointment on a farm… and chased the birds. We learned that of you put your arms out and walk towards them, they will run away.

I got to pet a horse at the farm! It started licking my hands and just came right on up. So basically, I was born to have a horse *cough cough* Mom (:

What I actually looked like petting the horse. Yep, I was pretty excited!
