Ladies & Gents, Start your guessing

MY PAPERS ARE OFFICIALLY SENT IN!!!! I had my Stake President interview last Sunday! Overall it was a good interview but he sure did kick me in the butt about a few things. He told me to do my visiting teaching and study the scriptures for an hour everyday. He told me to bare my testimony every chance I get (even in my prayers). He also encouraged me to teach Family Night lessons. I'm not sure how well that'll go. Compared to the way my parents teach I don't think I'll do a very good job. He reminded me how important it is to get along with everybody and to get outside my comfort zone. So yeah! Dads having a hard time with it all (isn't my dad the cutest!). Moms excited and can't stop buying missionary clothes haha! I'm real excited to serve the lord for 18 months! I can't wait to get out there and share my testimony with those who've forgotten theirs. I love this gospel so much! I know Heavenly Father loved his children so much that he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to be a perfect example and to die for us so that we may be able to repent and be forgiven. I know Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ in a vision. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon and re-organized the church through the power of Christ. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is true and that this church is the only true church on the earth today. I love my family and my friends and for all the love and support they give me. I know that if we are obedient to the laws and commandments of the church we will live with our Father in Heaven again. I know that our Father lives and I'm so grateful for this knowledge. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen


  1. you might want to tell your mom to wait on the buying missionary clothes 'till she knows the climate you'll be in!

  2. yeah that's what we keep telling eachother haha! There's just so many sales going on at dress places. We're gonna take alot of clothes back though

  3. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful testimony. Love you Sister Linny
