|Me doing the cliché missionary pic|
Whew! The weeks are flying by! I can't believe that I only have 1 more P-day until I'm in France. That is absolutely crazy to me! What's even crazier is that school is starting and life is still going on outside of the MTC. But I'm glad to hear everything's going well with everyone! All is well here. I have some funny things to share and also some spiritual ones, as always. I want everyone to know first off that every morning I'm pretty sure the Holy Ghost drags me out of bed on time, because I honestly don't know how I am waking up day after day! If that was the only blessing I got on my mission; the blessing of waking up on time- I would be 100% A-OK with that! But alas, tis not my only blessing and so I feel your prayers and the love of my Heavenly Father on a daily basis as I receive answers to prayers and am slowly refined.

The title of my email is from my teacher, Soeur Waldron. She is my hero! She is so funny and so kind. She reminds me a lot of Tori in some ways. But she always can say such profound things in a humorous way and she said that the French will think I'm adorable. Yay!

We have great devotionals here and I am reading Jesus the Christ and also my scriptures and everything else ever, so there's never a thirst for spiritual revelation because I'm always kind of receiving it! So we had a speaker come, his name is a sentence. C. Scott Grow. Yup. I got a kick out of that! But anyway, he talked about serving with all our heart, might, mind and strength. He said that God makes us MIGHTY when we serve with all our MIGHT. I learned that I need to consecrate this time to the Lord and am trying my absolute hardest to do that. I just want to be a good, obedient, missionary, and I know that through the love and power of Christ I can be! I love Jesus Christ with all of my heart, might, mind and strength. I know He is my Savior and Redeemer. He means everything to me, and I testify of His inexpressible love for each of you. If you are struggling, keep going. He knows how it feels. If you need an answer, ask. He wants you to learn. If you think you need to stop and help someone, do it. When we serve others, we are serving Him. The Spirit is real. The Church is true. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
I love you all! Je vous aime TRES TRES BEAUCOUP!
