We had a great district meeting on the importance of gratitude. Sister Bonnie Parkins gave a talk called Gratitude:the key to happiness. I never realized how important this concept was. In her talk she mentions that expressing gratitude is actually an act of faith. Alma 34:38 exhorts us to "Live in Thanksgiving daily." As we take the time to recognize the hand of the Lord in our lives then we'll recognize how much He truly blesses us.
We are so excited because Heavenly Father is blessing this ward. Ahlaiya is 8 years old, neither of her parents are members, but her step mom is. We've been teaching her for the past little bit and she is getting baptized on Saturday along with her step brother Kendrick. We're so excited for them! they are the sweetest Being on a mission is one of the greatest blessings ☼
we got these cool little drawing things called boogie boards. They are awesome.
