Good bye Brevard!

Here is a little news…! For the first time, I am being transferred! L I have grown to love the area of Brevard so much. It is hard for me to imagine leaving. I just have this feeling though that I’ll be back. I told everyone, “I’m not saying any goodbyes, just some see-ya-laters!” I have been so blessed to have been here for the last six months and to witness this area transform. Yesterday at church the stake president came and spoke. He talked of the transformation he has seen in the last few months. My heart was so full of warmth to have played a role in that. 

I have always told myself that I would never cut my hair and donate it….well…never say never! I totally did it! I cut off 12 inches and hopefully soon some adorable little girl will be sportin’ my locks!



Also, like I mentioned I am being transferred. I’m not sure where, although it will most likely be somewhere in Tennessee. Also…SURPRISE….I was called as a Sister Training Leader!

I have promised myself that I will never let a person pass me by without opening my mouth. As I have done so, the Lord continues to put prepared people in my path. So, open your mouths and shared the gospel! Others can feel of your powerful spirit and it leaves them wondering…what’s different? Share the precious gift that we have been given!



Thank you for your love and support. I am truly blessed!

“I know that our Savior does live. The gospel is REAL. The Plan of Salvation is REAL. Our purpose on this earth is to prepare to meet God. I know that Jesus Christ really is the Son of the living God. I know that he walked this earth and Atoned for not only our sins, but for every pain, sickness, worry, and care that we experience in this life. He never forsakes us. I know this is REAL and TRUE.

Thank you for your continued love and support. I am truly blessed to have such incredible and inspiring people in my life. Thank you!”

Quote from her letter:

“In the subdivision for some reason everyone HAS to have a black mail box. Well, for some reason birds seem to be infatuated with black mail boxes and so before too long they become black and white. One day Elder Parker’s wife told him that she had an idea about how she could spread the gospel. She told him that she was going to paint all of the mailboxes. He laughed knowing that they wouldn’t stay black very long and said, “Go for it!”
Later on in the week he was driving home from work and he passed his wife out painting a mail box. But she wasn’t alone; she was with two young ladies…the sister missionaries! As she painted the owner of the house talked with the missionaries. As a result of this endeavor, there were 97 mailboxes painted and the sister missionaries set up 31 return appointments. The Lord will take whatever contribution we have. The stake president also encouraged all of the families in the stake to come up with a family mission plan and I would propose the same thing to you. Set some goals and identify at least ONE individual or family that our family could try and reach. Life long missionary work is how we KEEP our covenants!”
