March 30, 2015

This week we got to watch the Women's conference.. SO GOOD! Its kinda weird cause we are 2 hours ahead so it started at 8 so it will be really weird with conference not starting till 12! I have been told Conference is like Christmas for missionaries.. Its definitely true, we haven't even watched it yet, but the Women's conference was super awesome! I LOVED that "The family is of God" song! I was also reminded of the importance of families and how they are CENTRAL to Gods plan. I am excited to one day have my own family, and I am so grateful for the family I have now :) Also how we are all needed in our Heavenly Fathers plan and we are all loved. I loved how President Eyring was talking about how we can help the Savior lighten the loads of others. It was all just really good!

We had a lot of fun at zone conference, and afterwards got to go on exchanges. This week has been full of a lot of learning. Sometimes it is nice to be the student rather than the teacher for a little, it helps me to gain that new motivation I need to keep working hard. At zone conference I learned a lot about how important goals really are, I have really been trying to put a lot more effort in using time wisely to reach the goals that we have set. Our mission president shared a story of a man who made a life list of things he wanted to accomplish in his life, and even though there were lots of goals about activities, or work, the most important were the ones focused on eternal progression, I have been thinking and am planning on writing one out to help me accomplish more in my life. It was also awesome to go on exchanges, I had the opportunity to stay in Wheeling with Sister Duncan. She is such an awesome missionary and I learned a lot from her about being yourself around everyone and to share more life experiences to relate that to the gospel.
This week has been kind of hard in regards to investigators. We don't have any that are progressing and we have been trying to find some more people who the Lord has prepared.

Also! There is a new Easter video that we are really pushing this week, Because He Lives. :) If you haven't seen it yet, you should WATCH IT! It is super awesome! Also SHARE IT on Facebook or twitter, or with a friend, through a text! Social media is great sometimes.. just needs to be used wisely.

But I know this church is true, I know that our Heavenly Father knows us all individually and PERFECTLY. I know that we have a very LOVING Savior, Jesus Christ, who is here for ALL of us whenever we need him. I am so grateful for this Easter season, and for the opportunity that I have to share my testimony of Jesus Christ with others. I know he lives, and because he lives I know that I can live again too, with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and my family. happy Easter on Sunday! Remember Christ in this Easter season! #becausehelives :)
