It's Been a SLICE

Sistah Bee at the back golfing last pday with her district.
 Yesterday I got to talk to my wonderful family and I suddenly understand what everyone is saying.... They are crazy :P I look forward to being part of their crazy again :) 

Sister B and Sister E
Lately the following question has been on my mind al lot. When I look back on my mission what do I see? I see a lot of great things I have learned  so far and  Wed morning I will be back on Temple Square! Crazy how time flies.  I have made some goals. The main one is focusing on the people there. Their needs and how I can help them during little time we have together. I want to make a difference in their lives and I want them to make an impression on mine. I need to imprint these peoples names on my heart. This requires loving others more than myself and being more concerned about them then myself. A friend mentioned in his email today how he and his companion shared the gospel with  others. They didn't teach anyone. They just shared, with their investigators, with members with less actives etc etc. I think this is a much better way to look at missionary work in all aspects.  We want to share the message of the restored gospel with our friends and loved ones, not teach them, not convince them, just share. What does sharing entail? Sharing is an act of love. It is giving something you cherish to someone else, you do it out of kindness and love for that person. So why are we sacred to do missionary work? What is so daunting about sharing something with a friend? Okay so maybe they don't accept it. Are you hurt and offended when someone doesn't want a ride somewhere  or a bite of your sandwich? No, but you wish they would take it. You start to feel like the Saviour when he too tried to share this same message and was saddened when people didn't want to partake of things that will bring them the most happiness in life. Yes you will be sad, but you will feel the love of the Savior because you are walking in his foot steps and you will know you are on the right path. I invite you all to continue to share he gospel with other, stand out and be different. We are the members of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, gods kingdom on the earth, We are different. we act differently, we talk differently and we dress differently. This was talked about a lot in general conference and I want to add my voice to those of our latter day prophets and apostles. Stand and defend your faith! Invite others to stand with you and you will not be ashamed to stand before God at the last day because you have been standing your whole life with him.

How many sisters does it take to set up a bunk bed?

or is is set up yet??
I love you all and invite you to stand with me, I know we are children of God sent here to learn, not get caught up in the unimportant drama of the world, have that bigger perspective.

Remember you are Braver than you Believe, Stronger than you Seem and Smarter than you Think!
