January 01, 2018 - The Week of Holidays

This week was so stinkin long! It could be because our last PDay was 8pm Saturday or it could be that we had 4 days of holidays this week where we weren't able to actively prosolyte. But probably a mix of both. Never fear, it was still crazy busy.

I was feeling very Colbie Caillat as I spent Christmas on the beach (cue Footprints in the Sand)! It was BUTT COLD but we suffered through. #FloridaWinterProbs It was a really great Christmas though. I am so grateful for technology that allows me to see my family and talk to them! It was so great. We spent the whole weekend in members homes! Including my absolute favorite family (they know who they are)! I loved my Christmas!! 🎄❤

This week we did something so fun! We did the "Book of Mormon Project" to give people the opportunity to read the Book of Mormon in a non-threatening and non-commital way. We handed out individual pages of the Book of Mormon to people to read and Mark any reference to 'God' or 'Jesus Christ.' It was awesome! It made me so grateful for the entire Book of Mormon that is contstantly testifying of our Savior and our Heavenly Father.

Speaking of the Book of Mormon, this week I finished the Book of Mormon!! I had a testimony of the Book of Mormon pre-mission but it is so so much stronger now. There is no doubt in my mind that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it is SO TRUE. So much peace can come from it.

Really quick, let's talk about the new year!! Happy 2018!!! As great as last year was, I'm pretty sure this year will top last year. I'm so excited to set new goals and do my very best this year and I hope y'all do the same. My 2018 challenge to y'all is to read the Book of Mormon every stinkin day. If you read 1.5 pages a day you can finish the Book of Mormon by the end of the year. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!! 🍋 So do it, I dare you. To give you some motivation, here is my scripture of the week that is in fact FOUND in the Book of Mormon!

2 Nephi 4:19
"And when I desire to rejoice, my heart groaneth because of my sins; nevertheless, I know in whom I have trusted"

I know in whom I have trusted and even though things get hard and life is tough, I KNOW in whom I have trusted. ❤ 

Love y'all! Have a FABULOUS week!!
