School Project

Brett had to do a State Report.  His teacher pulled states out of a hat randomly and assigned the kids.  Brett was given Georgia.  He had to write a report and put together a display.  He also had to make a food that represented the state.  He made Peach cobbler.  At school, they had a "State Fair."  All the classes came in and walked around the displays to ask the kids questions about their states.  Congrats Brett!!  You did a great job!

I found this video of a child in Korea who did an English project.  The name of the project is, "I never want to be a mother."  I wonder if her Mom helped her on this project..hmmmm.

Day 30 - What I learned

So Day 30,  3 months later.  What I learned is that life is unpredictable.  We plan for what life may bring, but hopefully we have prepared to handle what life actually serves.   I have learned that as a family we need to be able to navigate our way toward our goals together.  If life puts a road block in our way, we all need to make the adjustment to get around it and back on to the right path together. 

This last month we have had some craziness for sure, but one opportunity that I have had has changed me forever, is the opportunity to give Missionary Lessons.  My current calling in the ward is a ward missionary.  I have never had that calling before, and was looking forward to this new experience.  Recently, my partner and I have been able to give 2 discussions to an investigator and his wife.  The first time, I was nervous for sure, but with preparation and the knowledge that I know that the Spirit is doing the teaching, not me, I was calm.  What a wonderful teaching moment for the investigator and ME!  The second lesson, I was more confident in my ability and I hope I will have a 3rd opportunity.  I know we need to turn the investigators over to the full-time missionaries soon.

It is an amazing feeling to be a part of that process, even if the investigator chooses to be baptized or not.  The joy is in teaching the gospel.  I know that navigating this life is much easier when we know where our destination lies.  Our goal is being together as a family forever.
