Well..... I am getting transferred tomorrow! I can't believe it! Sister Porter and I have only been companions for a transfer! I don't want to leave! It has been breaking my heart all day. I knew it was coming though. I wish I could stay though. This is going to be a crazy big transfer! AH!
But yeah. This week we went to the temple. It was AMAZING like always. I learned so much and I am just happier than ever. I feel like I get re-boosted every time I go. It is so nice. 
Well, our investigators are doing well. It was a hard week with them. We didn't get anyone to church and it has just been frustrating. No one really moving so I knew that my time was up. I have done everything I can here. I have helped in every way possible. Hopefully I can continue to help in my next area. We will see what happens :) 
Be a light to everyone around you! 3 Nephi 12:14-16
I love you all! I hope you all have a great week.

Just keep swimming......

Well, This has been a pretty weak week. haha. Funny :) 
No but really. This has been a week to remember. Not a lot happened. Satan is so real. I know because of this week. He has been working really hard. Which I though was just on me. But no. I was WAY off. Not only was my companion having a hard week, but so was most of the mission.
Our mission President sent out a voicemail yesterday telling us to keep going. It is hard right now because Satan is trying to stop us. We are doing super well I guess for how young of a mission we are. So Satan is trying to bring us down but jokes on him because we aren't going to move. 
I am so grateful to be learning all of the lessons I am learning here. I know that I am here in Cherry Grove with Sister Porter for a reason. I love this ward. I love my companion. Life is great. 
Just keep going because it is always the darkest before the light comes. :) 
Shine Bright!

Remain at your post

Hello! :)
Well. I hope you all had a great week like we did. We have been having so much fun and things are just going very well. We had so much Grace from Heavenly Father this week. It was so great. I am so blessed to see so many miracles everyday! :) 
Well, the reason I did not write yesterday was because we had a Sisters Conference. It was so great! It was exactly what I needed. I got a lot of answers to questions and just feel so uplifted by the Spirit. :) The thing that I learned the most was that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and how important it is to have faith in His plan. President Porter read some verses from Alma 56 with us and it was just so perfect. That is the chapter about the 2000 Stripling Warriors and how they knew their mothers knew it. I had the thought that I wanted to be like that. I want my children to know that I know. Then the Spirit taught me that if I want them to know that I have to exercise my faith. I have to take bigger leaps of faith. I have to completely trust in the Lord. I have to show that it is possible because if I don't, then who will? 
I know that people need our examples. I know that I am setting an example for my future family and whatever else Heavenly Father has in store for me. Heavenly Father loves me. He will take care of me if I trust in Him. :) Always turn to the Lord and He will direst thy paths. You will have no need to fear :) 
I love you. Have a great week!

General Conference!

Well, This has been a great week! mostly because we had an amazing General Conference! It was so inspired and exactly what I needed! 
Well, this week we had a lot of good and a lot had a really really hard day. It was totally worth it though because of General Conference. I think my biggest take away was that I need to be converting myself EVERY DAY! It is so important. I realized that I need to be doing what the Lord wants me to be doing and not what I want. God has a plan for me and it is WAY better than what I have planned. I know there are good, better, and best decisions and I am in the process of figuring all of those out. 
Heavenly Father is so aware of us. He loves us all and knows us better than we know ourselves. We have no need to fear when we are following what we think are promptings. Heavenly Father will consecrate our efforts. 
Miracles come from following Heavenly Father. keep it up!
