The highlight of the week for me was our lesson and associations with our investigator, Sherry. She is just so sweet and is retaining everything a lot better now. There are some members who are involved in her process that really answer her questions in a way that she understands for sure. She is so sweet and has changed so much since the first time I met her 5 months ago. She LOVES learning and is always so excited to get the next "reading assignment". She just talks about it all the time how this gospel has just changed her. She is so much happier now and has made some big changes in her life. She just serves anyone that she can and is just such a sweet lady. She still doesn't like being pushed towards baptism but as she is serving and learning, the Holy Ghost is the one doing the pushing. :)
In other news, it is snowing a lot here. We have contacted some less-actives this week that are really working with now and we have appointments set up with them. We had a great Super Saturday craft making event on Saturday and it was both wards. It was so great to see everyone. Also, in good news, Adrianne, who got baptized last transfer, just got her Patriarchal blessing and is planning a temple trip with Bonnie, also recent convert, to go to the temple! They are just so great. I love them.
This week we have been sharing this mormon message about The Spirit of Thanksgiving. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful blessing from our Heavenly Father. He loves us so much and wants us to be happy. Watch this video and then start a list of things you are grateful for. You can even share a few on social media with the hashtag #sharegoodness. I met a lady this week who hasn't been to church in years and has had a pretty rough life, but she still keeps a gratitude journal DAILY for everyday of the year. It was a great example to me or having an attitude of gratitude.
I am grateful for each of you in my life and the influence you continue to have on me. I love you all!
