This week was full of laughs! Thank you for all of your prayers, they make a world of difference!
For starters...we're teaching this family. We will call them...the Jones family. Let's just say, they're a little ADD. All God's children (yes, I've been quoting Easy A my entire mission with that one liner). Anywho- This week when we went to the Jones' house to have a lesson and dinner their 11 year old son Kyle while -trying to help us understand his video game- tried to help us see how Assasins Creed related to the Bible...as if that was supposed to help us understand that the point of his video game was to kill everyone...? haha hilarious.
THEN Myca Irvine taught us how to crochet! Fret not, we have a good cause! We are going to join a knitting group at the library in hopes of finding someone that wants to listen to us and change their entire life in their old age. Wish us luck.
So...I sliced my thumb open while trying to open a can of black beans. I seriously thought I was going to need stitches. But alas, it stopped bleeding and Sister Ririe nursed me back to health. It's pretty gnarly though...
My life was changed this week. We went to the Disney Store at the mall. I FLIPPED OUT. And bought a Thor t-shirt- of course. I haven't set foot on a Disney establishment in THREE years! That's too long, just in case you were wondering. Luckily my dearest Kaitlin Welker (Shout out!) has been mailing me Pixie Dust which I sprinkle on my pillow every night. She's a life saver.
This week I learned so much about my divine purpose and potential! I don't think I will ever fully understand the role I have in His great plan, but I'm trying to comprehend it more and more every day. If you have your patriarchal blessing, read it with a dictionary. It rocked my world and totally changed the way I read it! Read this talk: http://www.lds.org/liahona/

By the way, I'm polar vortex proof. It's called living in Rexburg for three years. I have walked to school uphill both ways in the snow while it was -12 degrees. And look, I lived to tell about it. I don't see what everyone over here is complaining about. They canceled school because it was "too cold". Whatever. I don't get it.
I love you all! I am so grateful for my friends and family. One of God's greatest manifestations to me of how much He loves me is the people He places in my life. For that I will be eternally grateful. Have an amazing Christ centered week!
