Sunday


I love that Sundays are different than other days of the week We had a wonderful church service today mostly about prayer and the power of it . I was able to talk to several people and feel connected again after being out of town and so many people told me they are praying for my dad. I love the good feeling I get going to church, singing and feeling closer to my Father in Heaven. So many people do so much to serve-- to teach and help it feels good to be a part of such a hard working kind people.

My Sunday was great today, too. Some boys from my work came to church with me. My ward members were so welcoming and many stopped to talk to them and to tell them how glad they were that they had come. Made my heart swell.
