Well I tried and tried to just cut and paste my post under the other intro but it wouldn’t work. I have been sitting here for last 8 hours working on my calling and getting things set up so I can leave tomorrow morning to spend some time with Kim and his family. I keep telling him if he lived here then it would make it so much easier for him to pop over and help me when I get stuck on something. But of course that would mean I would have to move away from the computer and let someone else have access to it and I don’t know if I am ready for that lol.
I love learning and am always looking for ways to increase my brain load. I love this blog site as it makes me think everytime someone says “what do you think about this scripture”. Many times I holler at the computer to whoever posted and say doesn’t anyone ever read just for the sake of reading.???? But I guess if we did that with our scriptures we surely wouldn’t learn as much.
I truly enjoy church history and can never understand why others don’t feel the same way. We have our oldest son and his 7 year old son living with us this summer and we have been finding ways to incorporate the gospel into their lives (our son is inactive and has been for about 12 years). Our grandson now asks for his turn to say prayer and Sunday night he announces that when he turns 8 he wants to be baptized like his cousins. I spend so much of my time worrying about doing member missionary work “out there” that I forgot I have my own family to work with.
It has been great having a daughter and SIL that are active living so close distance wise with us as our son spends half of his time there. They have the same “rules” as we do, family prayer, family home evenings, church on Sunday etc and he is seeing that there is a part of his life that is missing. We talk a lot just in every day conversation about the church, our callings and what is going on so he can see that he is missing a lot. I sincerely hope that he finds a place to move to that is in our area still.
Well that is it about me. I of course, am not as opinionated as Kim is and am more tactful when telling people off (lol) but I am very proud of the work Kim does and his never ending need to learn and study.
