The trio life! After sorella Tacchi went home sorella Greer, sorella Cook, and I rocked the trio life for almost a whole week! It was a kinda Lumpy week. not rough but for sure not the smoothest. Sorella Groll is Sorella greets new companion but she didn't come till later and then left again for a meeting in Rome! Now it's back to preaching the Gospel two by two though! We had some great times this week though, those girls are a riot and kept me laughing the whole time! We did some fun finding too. Because they have both only been here for 7 weeks, together they could hold good conversations and I went and talked to people a few steps away! We talked to so many people! We had lots of great conversations and we try our best to invite people to learn bout Christ and God. It's hard work but I know they Lord is helping us.
Funny story this week: I was feeling like baking last week so I tried making these no bake cookies I found a recipe for. They turned out to mostly just be sugar and ricekrispies. They tasted great but we're kinda a fail. The other sisters brought them to a member though and her niece loved them! She asked for the recipe and said this week she is going to try and make them! If they don't turn out she says we will have to make them together! I decided to bake actual cookies this week because I feel so bad if those are the dolce standard we set!
Spiritual thoughts this week :
1) Brighter and Brighter until the Perfect Day By Elder Mark A. Bragg "We are children of God. Receiving light, continuing in God, and receiving more light are what we are created to do. From the very beginning, we followed the light; we followed our Heavenly Father and His plan. Seeking the light is in our spiritual DNA."
2) Importance of Christ as Savior. Without the Atonment of Christ we would all perish nonostante our good works. Mosiah 13:28 . He was chosen and prepared from foundation of world. He is the only way.
3)Thou Art Joseph by Elder Kim B. Clark, Worldwide Devotional for Young Adults • May 7, 2017 "The Lord held Joseph to a very high standard, with no excuses. He treated Joseph like the great prophet He wanted Joseph to become. Joseph feared man more than God. He trusted in his own understanding and not in God. For Joseph, repentance was much more than simply saying, “I made a mistake. I am sorry I lost the manuscript.” Joseph needed to overcome the attitudes, fears, and dispositions in his life that were at the root of his sins. And he needed to grow and learn and change all through his life."
4)Why Marriage, Why Family By Elder D. Todd Christofferson
"Brothers and sisters, many things are good, many are important, but only a few are essential. Much that is good, much that is essential—even sometimes all that is necessary for now—can be achieved in less than ideal circumstances. May marriages flourish and families prosper, and whether our lot is a fulness of these blessings in mortality or not, may the Lord’s grace bring happiness now and faith in sure promises to come."
I couldn't decide which I liked best!
I'd love if you wanted to send me a testimony about how you know the church is true, or the book of Mormon, or the prophet. Hearing how others came to know helps me teach I think.
Love you all!
