Two down. Two to go! August 7, 2018

Hi there 🙂

Hope you all are having a great week!!  Thank you all for your emails throughout the week. I read them all and love them. Sorry if I don’t get time to reply to every one.
Life here at the MTC is super great! We hit our half way mark yesterday, thank goodness!!
-Sister Shaw finally said my name right!
-Sister Sumsion and I get told we look like sisters multiple times a day.
-They had Chick-fil-a the other day and I’m pretty sure it was straight from Heaven.
We’ve been reading Jesus the Christ in companion study and it’s been the best. Our goal is to finish the book before we leave the MTC. Our testimony of the Savior has grown so much from reading that book. We’ve also been doing tons of Book of Mormon and Bible study in class and woah how grateful I am for my Savior, Jesus Christ. On Friday, our entire focus was on repentance and how hope is NEVER lost. Repent and He’ll forgive! And once you’ve repented stop looking in the rear view mirror and focus on the road ahead!
On Wednesday Sister Sumsion had an doctors appointment off campus so we got to skip class & go into the “real world” for a few hours haha. It was crazy going out as real missionaries with name badges because some people literally won’t even look at you. If only they all knew the joy that could come from the message we share. 😉 Anyways, we were waiting for the shuttle to come pick us back up when a kinda scary guy came up to us. But no worries he just told us about how he had been reading the Book of Mormon and really liked it. It was super neat being able to talk to a few people and share a brief testimony with them.
I hope you all know that you a son/daughter of God!! You have divine royalty. He loves you so much more than you could ever imagine. He truly only wants the best for you. He truly is our loving Heavenly Father. He loved us so much that He send His Son so that we could return to Him someday.
If you ever have any questions about the great message I am sharing, please email me!! I would love to tell you more.
Christ lives & you are awesome.

cookies!!! We pretty much live off junk food that people send us. (As I’m literally stuffing my face with candy)

temple today! Pretty much our entire zone was there and it was so neat to be in the temple with them. I LOVE the temple and peace that it brings. The Spirit is so strong in that building and there is no where I would rather be.

crappy elevator pic but we fit so many people into the elevators its probably not safe…hahaha. I swear seeing how many people we can fit into the elevator is like the most fun thing for the elders. I think the most we’ve gotten is 23 or maybe it was 26? Basically you don’t breathe on the elevator. But I’m not walking up 5 floors so say a prayer we never get stuck in one haha.

the new mtc buildings are super nice and there are SO many cool murals & pics. We always pick a new room to study in. What a blessing to be able to have new buildings. They are so nice.

blessings.

Posted in Uncategorized

“Men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He will deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, raise up friends, and pour out peace. Whoever will lose his life in the service of God will find eternal life” 

This quote has been on my mind a lot lately and only because I am continually amazed at how true it really is. When we follow God our lives become so blessed. I mean read that again and notice all of the blessings that come from choosing to put Christ first in our lives. If you ever wonder if the gospel of Jesus Christ is worth it, I am here to tell you it is. Read that quote again and tell me that choosing Christ isn’t worth it. Nothing brings greater blessings than choosing to follow Christ. It is hands down the best thing you will ever do.

xoxo

Belief in God

Posted in Uncategorized

Belief in God is so much more than believing that someone is “in charge” or having someone tell you what to do. It means having a connection with your oh so loving Heavenly Father. It means gaining a relationship with Him and knowing Him.  It means having someone to turn to when you need someone the most and knowing that He will always be there no matter what. It means knowing that your future is in his hands, and trusting that He will great things with it.

It means understanding that you are a child of the one and only King. You are a princess or prince. You matter. Belief in God means that you believe that you matter and that you can become something great. It means that you are literally a Child of God! It means that because you are a Child of God He expects the best out of you. He expects that you keep His commandments and do so with the best of your ability.

Belief in God is so important and can bless  your lives in so many great ways. Develop a relationship with Him, keep His commandments, and watch your life change.
