Scripture Sunday - Sister Crook's Favorites

"And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." ~ 2 Nephi 25:26

"And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them.  If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done.
And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?" ~ 1 Nephi 17:50-51

Sister Crook will be transferred this next Tuesday and we are going to miss her tremendously.  Sister Crook will always have a special place in our hearts.  She has just over a year left on her mission and I know that the families and investigators that she comes into contact with will be truly blessed.  We love you, Sister Crook :)

Scripture Sunday

This photo was taken the first time Sister Crook (L) and Sister Mayle (R) came to our house.  Their personalities were perfectly captured :)  The Sisters are called to serve an 18 month mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.   Sister Crook is about 3 months into her mission and Sister Mayle has about 5 weeks left in her mission. When the time comes, it will be difficult to say 'Good-bye' to both of them. 

I am so grateful and thankful that Heavenly Father placed the Sisters in our lives.

The Day After...

Political signs are coming down, the ads on tv and radio have subsided, some are happy and others are not.  I am so thankful of the outcome and am looking forward to see what happens after the swearing in's take place January 3, 2015.

Hopefully there will be a small breather of political influx before the 2016 elections...but I doubt it.

I already have my eye on a potential presidential candidate and I believe he will do a great job!  Who is this person? Dennis Michael Lynch !  Check out his website.  You can also find him on YouTube as well as Facebook

Who do you have your sights on?
