The best weekend ever!!!

The pictures say it all. This weekend was so much fun, and such a uplifting weekend I cannot even begin to tell. On Saturday morning my roommate and I cleaned house and rearranged it. I was able to organize the girl's toys and get rid of some of the toys that they NEVER play with, and make too much noise. Anyways after that we all went letter boxing. This one place that we went to was so pretty and the leaves had fallen and it was just beautiful. So we took some pictures out there in the park. As you can see Kaleb, my roommates son really likes Baili. All the time they will say they are going to get married and be happily ever after. It is so cute. Then after that we came home the kids ate dinner and then my wonderful sister Shavonne came over and watched the kiddos so that Trish and I could go to a fireside where Elder David A. Bednar spoke. He is amazing. He did a question and answer fireside. He was very blunt and very sincere. He made us laugh but at the same time he invited the Spirit to be there in that meeting, and I can honestly say that I have never felt the spirit so strong than last night. He talked about how being one of the 14 present in the calling of a new prophet, he talked about the dignified way of it, he talked about our agency, and forgiving and forgetting. He spoke of the Book of Mormon and he bore his testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There was so much more, but know that I too have a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that it is the only true church on the earth today, I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ, and that by and through them we now have this truth. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Died for our sins so he would provide a way for us to return to live with Heavenly Father. I know my family is forever. I know my girls will be with me forever. I feel that it is important for all people to come to this knowledge, and hope that you will pray for yourself to know this truth.

It was really a great weekend, and I am excited for many more to come.


  1. Super cute pics of the kids! I am glad that you had such a good weekend. After all that happend with the stake pres, this was a much needed experience for you. It just reafirms what we all already know to be true, however its nice to get that burning feeling again.
