CHURCH!!!!


We have been working every single Sunday since May 20th and we finally get to go to church in a few minutes. I'm so excited. I have been feeling guilty ALL summer long and we begged for our schedule change, but it never came. I long for the noisy kids in sacrament meeting and the crazy guy with all the answers in sunday school, and the Elders Quorum meetings of just passing around the manual and everyone reading a paragraph. I miss all of that. But most of all, I just miss the blessings that come from going to church every week. I mean we have been doing better at scripture study on our own, and we even made it out to the temple a couple times, but nothing can match the spirit of being in the church with all the other members sharing the same values and beliefs as us, feeding off of each other's thoughts and answers. I'm so excited to feel the spirit again.

Oh, so I just got back from church and had to make a quick edit.... I forgot about the crazy people who bear their testimonies about THEM and nothing about Heavenly Father. I want to bear my testimony that I know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who loves us and sent His Son to live and die for us. We are led by a prophet today and I yearn for his counsel and guidance.
