"TO EVERY THING THERE IS A SEASON AND A TIME UNDER THE HEAVEN." ECCLESIASTES 3:1

Working on new material for the blog!

It has taken me awhile to decide what to do with the blog. I felt lost not posting pictures of the missionaries and I've felt lost with not having my missionary routine. We are starting to settle into a different routine and I have decided to start blogging again. It will take me a little while to get things squared away but we are rolling into the next phase of our journey in life - recovery from the best experience of our lives ( the mission), knee surgery( Tim's), physical therapy for my back, and the economy with our business. We look forward to continuing our growth spiritually and preparing for what comes next!

President's Seminar in Estonia 2009

I really looked forward to our annual seminar. I wanted to be spiritually fed and I was! I had been preparing myself for some time. Elder Perry, Elder Rasband and the Area Presidency spoke! They focused on "The Rescue" of our less active members. They discussed that those that are brought back bring with them family that want to hear the the gospel and be baptized. We are seeing that in our mission. As our missionaries reach out to the less active -they are coming back and are being welcomed by their old friends. Their children or relatives are being taught the gospel and are entering the waters of baptism. We have passed the number of baptisms we had last year and there is a different feel in the mission. It is so AWESOME!

We were able to attend the Helsinki Temple and what a great experience. We looked forward to this and could hardly wait to attend. We felt so spiritually fed in the temple. I soaked up every word as if it were for the first time attending and yet I felt like I was home. My Eternal Home. I never have had all my senses come so alive before. It was wonderful, wonderful to me. I love my Savior and I am eternally indebted to him.
