" May we all cherish the female figures in our lives.."

So0o0o0o0o0o0o you'll forgive me for not writing an update this week. I expanded much with my family yesterday haha All is well though. Price area hit standards once again and continues to find new people each week. Our hopes are high for those we are currently teaching. 2 baptisms set for the 24. We are really happy because one is zaharah and she is the first in her family to join the church. What a great example she will be, and a light unto those around her. She loves the gospel and what it's done for her so far and she can't wait to make her first covenant with heavenly father. 

Happy Mother's Day to All! As we reflect on the true meaning of Motherhood, let us remember what a sacred calling it is, and the trust that encompasses it from our Heavenly Father. As I pondered it I came to the thought of how men, having priesthood keys for this dispensation, still do not have God's power of creation. What a blessing it is to the daughter's of God to be able to bring new spirit children into this world, and nurture and raise them as children of God. May we all cherish the female figures in our lives, even those without children; they all play a role in Heavenly Father's plan to nurture us in one way or another with the love only they can give. 

I love you all!
