August 27, 2018 - The Week of the 10?!

I LOVE this week!!! Hold tight, it's a wild one. 

I spent the first half of the week with Sister Knudsen in Jax Beach after we both dropped off our companions (rip Emily😢). It was so funny be back by the beach! It reminded me of my forever and day time spent in St. Aug.... *sigh( anyway back to reality! It was so fun to be with her! She came out just 6 weeks after me and we spent 6 months together in st. Aug! We have both changed so much so it was best to spend time with my bff Jill. 😙

On Wednesday, I picked up Sister Spangler and we came back to good ol' Lake City/ Alligator Town. She is a killer missionary!!! Here are some fun facts about my new friend: 

-She is a convert of about 3 years 
-She is the only member in her family 
-She loves Pepsi 
-She has 5 weeks left on her mission 
-She finished all of My Plan already so I don't have sit through that again 👐👐
-She's not even trunky!!!
 

We had a killer week!!! We went to go see a woman we had been working with. She lives in a very sketchy place so people are always in and out of her house. Because of that we were able to hold an impromptu scripture study and found 10 new people to teach!!!! Y'all, lake city is B L E S S E D

This week I was studying happiness and I learned that there are 4 things we can do to increase your happiness. Get your notebook and pen out cause these are good.  

1. Learn to laugh 
2. Seek for the eternal 
3. Learn and have faith in the principle of compensation 
4. Trust in the Father and the Son 

I PROMISE you that this is true. Happiness is so attainable!! Even when you're sweating in August in Florida on a bike, in a skirt. 

I love y'all!!! ❤☀️

 Elder Shurtliff thought it would be a good idea to put a snake on me 🙃 If you look closely you can probably see my tears.... don't mind the double chin. It only comes out when I'm scared.
