See Ya La Mirada

I’m outta La Mirada, and have been transferred right to the heart of Long Beach! It’s probably the most humble part of the mission and I am excited to end my mission there.
I have loved every moment of the 7 1/2 months I have spent in La Mirada, and the experiences and lessons I have learned from being here I will remember forever. It’s amazing how God knows exactly who you need to meet, where you need to be and what you need to learn to become who He can see you becoming. I will be forever grateful for the Lord’s hands molding me into who He needs me to be.
In order to be molded and shaped, I’ve discovered that quite a bit of humility and meekness is needed. I didn’t really understand what meekness was until I studied this quality in the scriptures and found this quote.
“Meekness is a defining attribute of the Redeemer and is distinguished by righteous responsiveness, willing submissiveness, and strong self-restraint.” David A. Bednar
I hope that I can be meek, and be willing to listen and to learn from the Lord every single day.
I hope ya’ll have a great week!

Continue to Learn


Hi friends and family!

I found this quote and thought it was perfect for this week.
I think it’s an incredible thing to know that we can continue to learn throughout our lives. God has given us the ability to search, ponder and pray. To know for ourselves gospel truths. Prayer is so essential to building our relationship with our Father in Heaven and in receiving answers to direct our lives! God wants to guide and direct us but He can’t do that if we aren’t praying.
I don’t know if I mentioned Armond and Pye before, but we had a unique experience teaching them how to pray this week. It was so special to know and see them pray and have a heartfelt conversation with their Father in Heaven. Sometimes I think prayer is a gift we take for granted far too often. We need to remember that our prayers are a direct line to God. He hears them, and if we listen, He will answer them.
Have a wonderful week!

Psalm 23


1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

There once was a young man who could captivate any audience on Broadway. He was incredible and after one such performance was asked to come back, again, again, and again until finally he was requested to recite Psalm 23. So he did and again it was a wonderful performance. But then he asked an older gentleman on the front row that he knew personally to come up and recite Psalm 23. After that performance there was no applause, but there wasn’t a dry eye in the whole crowd. The young man climbed the stage again and says, “I know Psalm 23, but this man knows the Shepherd.” 

The question posed was, “Do you know the Shepherd?” 

I loved this questions and I hope each of you will take some time to reflect on how you know your Savior and your Shepherd. He loves each of us and suffered for each of us individually and personally. How grateful am I for the knowledge of a Savior and Redeemer of the world. 

Have a wonderful week!
