"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!

Zone Conference in Kharkov went much like Donetsk - FANTASTIC!!!! The Zone Leaders are amazing and did a great job. Here is some of what they talked about: ELDER T. MCARTHUR talked about setting GOALS - It's like a compass - you know exactly where you are and where you are going. We come up with the goals and the SPIRIT confirms it. ELDER STEELE on planning: it is a skill we need to develop our WHOLE LIFE. Planning keeps us ORGANIZED and increases our FAITH. SISTER and ELDER REED also spoke: SISTER REED: Cultivate desire to know the SAVOIR - how can you serve Him if you don't know Him. Pray for a greater DESIRE to know the Savior. OBEDIENCE - pray for a stronger committment. EFFORT - pray with all your heart, might mind and strength. ELDER REED: To teach by the spirit you must SEARCH the scriptures DILIGENTLY, PRAY and FAST. Elder Williams: go 2 by 2 and teach by way of the COMFORTER and work in UNITY with your companion. Pray and study together. Elder Beus: Pay attention to what your companion says - back him up and INSPIRE people to action. SERVE your companion and follow the spirit by listening and yielding to your companion. Plan more EFFECTIVELY - be on the same page. ELDER LAMARR : be finding PEOPLE where ever you are at. Finding by the spirit takes ACTION - pay attention to ideas, feelings and thoughts. ELDER GREEN: committing people thru the spirit. SPEAK with the tongue of angels, SPEAK with the Spirit of God. Have faith that YOU can do it. They were very inspiring presentations and I felt the spirit so strong that I had a hard time writing and keeping up with all they said!
