It's the holiday season people!!!! How crazy and exciting is that?!?! This week we will all partake of delicious food! And just think! That one year ago on Wednesday is when this whole crazy journey to Ohio started! Well it started before that but on Wednesday was when I got an amazing phone call from my big sister in Germany. Half way across the WORLD and I got to hear her voice as I read that I would be going to the Ohio Cincinnati Mission. And then I got to hear "I love you Mad!" on the other line. Heavenly Father helped me to know that I was supposed to be going to this mission. That was a great day.

I have so much to be thankful for. I have an amazing companion Sister Shaw! I am serving a mission in Kentucky! I have an awesome district that dresses up in Harry Potter Gryffindor colors for district meeting. I have a great family that supports me while I am out here! President and Sister Porter and amazing! Heavenly Father is so great.
There are so many things to be grateful for. 

Sure love ya!

We laugh. We cry. We dumpster dive!

So this week has been an adventure! For one of the days we were on exchanges with our Sister Training Leaders and I was with Sister Corbridge and she is so great! And then on Thursday we got to go and have zone conference with Elder William W. Anderson of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. It was awesome! And I received a lot of revelation of how I can change to become better. It was good to see President and Sister Porter again too. 

So this week I went dumpster diving for Sister Corbridge's camera too! That is how much I love my Sister Training Leaders. We found goggles in the cleaning closet and also gloves so that I wouldn't get ebola (haha) and went to work. The bummer was we never found the camera... It was still a great adventure though!

Also this morning we woke up and it was a WINTER WONDERLAND outside! THE FIRST SNOW! Sister Shaw is from California and so she isn't sure how she feels about it (: I'm loving it! But I am sure I will feel differently after Christmas (: 

Hope you all have a great week and know that I sure love ya!

Good Night Sleep Tight

hey so we found bed bug friends in the couch in the apartment here. So we did zero missionary work on Saturday and spent the whole day cleaning. And then moved the couch out at 8pm to the dumpster. those hula days of moving the couch pay off! And we felt like the Grinch sneaking it out at night. I videoed that and you can see it in a year haha (: 

Pray for us!!


Hey so here I am in the promised land of Kentucky! Sister Shaw is awesome and we are slowly figuring things out here! Hope you all have a great week! And dream of Graeter's ice cream because it is delicious! Buckeye Blitz forever!

That Moment When...

That Moment When.....
*You get transferred out of your first area.
*And you go to a transfer meeting with 90% of the mission. It was literally a really huge transfer meeting!
*And you get transferred to KENTUCKY! 
*And you also get DOUBLED INTO your area! Which just means that both you and your companion are new to the area and have not served there before.
*And you flood your kitchen the first night that you are there.
*And you have no idea what you are doing and so you just pray a lot and follow what God tells you to do!
*And because you have no idea what you are doing you go and buy yourself Christmas in October (aka a Garmin GPS) so that you can find your way around!
*And your companion is Sister Shaw and she is so funny and awesome and is teaching me so much and how to not stress out about being new!
Kentucky is going to be quite the adventure! It's awesome! Hope you all have a great week!

Sure love ya!
