Whitney's Letters

We received 4 letters from Whitney today, 1 e mail and 3 letters. Her classes start at 6:55 am and she stays busy until 8:45 at night. She loves her companion, Sister Pahulu from Florida. As you can tell from the name she is of Tongan descent. Whitney says she has to pray in Spanish and they also had to bear their testimonies in Spanish to the class. She has heard that the foursquare games during gym class are vicious(broken noses, stictches, pulled shoulders, etc.......) The general authority visitor on Christmas Day was L. Tom Perry, She said it was wonderful but after he left there wasn't a lot to do. She thanks everyone that has written to her and Sara for the package. Please keep those cards and letters coming. She's doing great!

Last Post

This is my last post for awhile. I was set apart as a full-time missionary at 7:30. President Sharp gave me a wonderful blessing. Many things were promised to me. I am overwhelmed. I know that this is the right thing for me to do. People are waiting for me. I am not scared, and I am not feeling any anxiety. President Sharp asked one of my sisters to volunteer to be my companion at the moment it is Banner. She is watching me to make sure I don't do anything but communicate with my family. I love everyone, I look forward to arriving at the MTC. I know that I will be okay, and I have been promised that my family will be protected. Best of luck and Merry Christmas.

My Farewell

Today was a really nice day. It was kinda cold but nice. Everyone was here this morning to hear my talk. I didn't realize that I could talk for so long. The meeting ran over by 5 minutes, and I even cut out a chunk of my talk. My friends came over after for lunch. I really enjoyed visiting with Garrett, he had alot of helpful advice. I was afraid that saying goodbye to the family would be hard, but the Lord has answered my prayers and has blessed me with the strength to say goodbye. I will see how well I do on Wednesday. As I write my parents are playing tennis, in an attempt to be better for next weeks tournament. I believe Banner will triumph again. I want to thank everyone again, for driving down to see me. I know that Tennyson enjoyed having everyone here for her birthday, and I was glad to see everyone before I go. thank you.

Before and After and Harry Potter





So I was informed that my room was to be sufficiently emptied before I left. SO here are some pics of the process. I had already started when I took theses pictures and I haven't finished yet so we will label these sort of before and kind of after. Sorry they are at a bad angle they don't look like that on my computer image program so I don't know how to fix it.

Happy 48th Birthday Dad



Battle of the BAD

I feel it's only fair that I post pics of myself and no one else. I might add I never take a bad picture of anyone, because I don't want bad one taken of me.

Life is Eternal

I wanted to post a segment of the talk I gave in Sacrament meeting today.

Two weeks ago I went to Salt Lake to the blessing of my cousins first child, Leah Jane. As I thought about her blessing in relation to my talk, I realized what unique experience I had witnessed. This blessing was the first step in her mortality as a daughter of God. Leah is fortunate. She was born to her parents who were sealed in the temple under the new and everlasting covenant. If her parents remain true to this agreement, Leah will be beneficiary to those covenants by being in a home filled mostly with peace, love, protection, and understanding. I hope Leah’s life as a faithful Latter-day Saint will move from a baby receiving a priesthood blessing to a child of God receiving baptismal covenants, to a woman entering into temple covenants, to serving a mission, to a wife being sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise, and finally to an exalted daughter returning home to our Heavenly Father’s open arms. This is our Journey as saints.
What amazing things await us if our covenants remain unbroken.

"How blessed we are to be God’s covenant people. To the faithful Saint, the Lord has promised, "All that my Father hath shall be given unto him" (D&C 84:38). The greatness of that promise is hard for mortals to understand. The commandments he gives are for our benefit, and as we are faithful we may forever share the blessings and beauties of heaven and earth. We may live in his presence and partake of his love, compassion, power, greatness, knowledge, wisdom, glory, and dominions."
Our Covenants are an expression of our faith. Covenants should help us focus on the big picture and not just the immediate. As my friends and family members have served missions, I have seen covenants further the work of the Lord. Covenants help us make a difference in the lives of others. Covenants should make the choice of righteousness easier.
I bear my testimony that we can come unto Christ and be perfected in him by our worthy participation in the sacred ordinances appointed by God. I treasure the covenants my Heavenly Father has made with me and with all my heart hope to live faithful to them.

As Sara requested next weeks quiz will be easier. I may even do a kids quiz and and adult one. Watch for it.

Small Quiz

1. Who said this, what movie? "Love is like the measles. You only get it once, and the older you are, the harder you take it."
2."What's the matter with you? Someone butt you in the bread basket?"

They are from the same movie. Good Luck

New Moon





I finished New Moon this morning. Another quick read. Les called me and she informed that she missed my last quiz. Sorry. I am going to try and come up with some questions for today. Also, last night it snowed about 4 inches.
