PROVO MTC - Day 9: December 11, 2015

HOW ARE YOU GUYS!!! Life here in the MTC is going so well!! I've really adjusted which has definitely been an amazing blessing!! I can't believe that on Monday I will be leaving Utah to got to North Carolina for the next 18 months!! How is everyone? How's School going? How is Jordan?
This last Sunday we had a devotional with the Young Women's General President, Sister Oscarson. Her talk was really amazing. She showed us a video from Elder D. Todd Christofferson telling a story that was told by Hugh B. Brown. The story was about this current bush that was producing no flowers so the gardener cut its branches off. The current bush didn't understand why he had cut them off. The next year when the current bush had grown its branches back with fruit and flowers, the bush said, "thanks for loving me enough to cut me down." I really loved this story. In our family, we all have had some pretty hard trials to go through, but its important to remember that Heavenly Father has put those trials in our life because He loves us so much and He knows that from those trials we will be stronger and more beautiful!! that CTR ring was totally cutting off my circulation so I put it on my bag with my hand sanitizer so I see it all the time!!!
Kyle....I hope all is going well at work. I hope that life is going well as well. Remember that you are an amazing kid, so don't settle for less. Surround yourself with the people who truly love you and try to help you be the man Heavenly Father wants you to be. have you started basketball yet? How's the junior high going? Continue to be the happy little young man that I know!!
Mom....thank you so much for all you have given us. You truly are an amazing mom and we all love you so much!!
Well keep me updated!! I love you all so much!!!

  1. Hi mine great granddaughter, I have a feeling this mission will be wonderful for you. The Lord has you in his sights and will bring about great things in this N.Car. mission because of you and your companion. I look forward to hearing from you. Please put your address so we can send Chrismas cards etc. Lillian and Adiack were just here on their way home from the hospital with Beleen (spanish for Bethlehem), she is such a tiny mite, 7#13 oz. 20 inches long. I forget how tiny babies are and how precious. I remember your blessng, how much you looked like our John, also very precious to us when you were born and still are. You are in my prayers every day as is your mission president and his family. We all need the Lord's help as do the people you will meet on your mission. Live the mission rules, that will help you and the Lord can help you as you are obedient. Love you Meghan mine! Love, Grandmama
