Well, this was my week; it was pretty crazy. I have never been so tired because of sleep in my life haha, but it was worth it to always have those memories!
I'm glad your dreams are coming true! The new calling should be good for you because you're organized and can help the ward and then do my blog! hahahha
That's good that dad is still going with his walking. Winstanley and me are trying to jump rope for 30 minutes every day.
McKaylee told me about her Big Lots job - they call her the machine. Remember the Ray Lewis video....you can't stop this. I'm a machine, jerk! hahahahahahhahahahah
What we do to help the members with missionary work is get them excited about bringing a less active member to church. We ask them who is missing that you have good memories with and ask them if think they should be here. Then we try to set appointments with them and the less actives to get them to come back to church. Then through the less actives, we find non members where we have members there with the family already.
Thank you, Mom
Love you mom
