Still In Enid And Happy To Be With Elder Holman Thru Another Transfer!

All I really want for Christmas is a letter from each member of my family... maybe a couple of ties or any other random fun thing you find too.

I found out that I'm staying with Elder Holman for another transfer here in Enid which is a great relief. That means we'll get Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years together. It's going to be a blast.

I was asking the other elders how old Livi looks and they all said 17. Ha she still looks 15 to me. It's been a while since I've looked at the family pictures, but I know Ava and Jace look a lot different. It's going to be weird to come home to older siblings. I'm pretty sure I look the exact same, so that's pretty easy. I wish I could say I was 6'5" now, but I probably won't get another growth spurt til I'm 25. lol

Anyways we had an amazing experience with our investigator Eryn this week. She had already been to church a few times, but we took her on a church tour anyways. It was so fun to talk to her as we walked around the church and joke about the good times in life. We ended with the chapel and asked her how she felt there. It was an great calming feeling that she described. We continued to talk about the sacrament and the blessing it was to us and our families. As a mother she lost her daughter in a custody battle and we can see that the sadness and pain tears her apart sometimes. She is gaining a correct understanding that the church will provide a great support system for the vision she wants to accomplish. She wants a strong family. 

I am so grateful for the strength that the Church provides to our family. We all are becoming so much better and stronger. I love you momma!
