Hey everyone! I hope you all have a great Easter tomorrow!
Sorry....but you're gonna get another shorter email today. The longer I'm out the less motivated I am to write about my life to you all...BUT because I love you I will give you somethin, but its still gonna be short! Sorry!
We had a great week this week on campus! We had exchanges on Tuesday with Sister Hardy and Sister Boren! It was so fun! Then on Thursday we set up a booth on campus with the other sisters and the elders! It was so awesome! We had signs up that said "Ask a Mormon a question for a cookie!" There were soooo many cookies AND PEOPLE! Yay! So many people talked to us and were actually interested in what we were saying! It was an amazing experience! Although we have a ton of leftover cookies that we are trying to pass off to other people so we don't eat them all ourselves. Thursday night we went to the temple and it was A M A Z I N G!!! Then spent the night with the sister that are in Fishers, Sister Dawes (my baby!!!!) and Sister Smith! It was so fun:) Yesterday we had a meeting with President, the Assistants and all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders in Fishers! It was a good meeting and we learned some cool things!
One thing that stuck out to me this week in my studies was the idea of grace and faith! I love the fact that we can continually grow our faith no matter what! And its only through the grace of Jesus Christ and His Atonement! He showed us the way and we can follow it! We don't have to be perfect at it, it was part of the plan that we aren't perfect! And that's the amazing thing that we can continue to grow and improve and every time we do, and are willing to, God will help and bless us! One of my favorite scriptures is found in the Book of Mormon. Ether 12:27 "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."
I hope you all have a lovely week! Love you!
