This week I GOT TO GO TO THE TEMPLE WITH REBECA! What an incredible experience! It was so good to be in the temple again after over a year but it was even better to see the even more amazing person that Rebeca has become. She has set such a good example for me and become a role model in my life for which I am very, very grateful! I can't express how much Saturday meant to me. I have a huge testimony of the power and peace that comes from the temple. It is a place of refuge and understanding.
Quote of the week is from Claudia J. Clayton: "I believe Satan would have us resist examining ourselves closely and he would have us avoid being examined closely and known deeply by others." Wow, has Satan used this tool on me a lot! I am grateful that a mission has helped me address this in a lot of ways and realize the damage I was doing to myself and others. I think I said this a couple of weeks ago, but there is so much power in recognizing how we can improve and allowing others to help us!
I also got letters this week that made my life! I cannot believe Tanner is a graduate and college student now!!! Crazy!! I am super proud of him. :)
We had a pros-Monday yesterday and spent some time helping with an event at Flamingo gardens. I thoroughly enjoyed directing traffic for 2 hours. It was a cool opportunity for others to see us in a different environment and giving service.
I love you all and hope you have an awesome week!
