On Monday we attended our first Bishop rick Family home evening with our new Bishop Marshall. Kids had a ton of fun doing a scavenger hunt and they got to find a treasure chest with cool stuff. Then we kicked it off with some Rock Band! It was awesome to see Brother Genteel and Brother Marshal as a Band!!! Lots of fun. AJ also got a chance to play the guitar. He has been very much into a guitar recently. We might need to get his a new one for his birthday without strings, otherwise they get cut off.

This week we also had a Beautiful RS birthday party. I was asked to give a talk on Celebrating our Life and the Life of Christ!!! I thought oh, easy, I can do that with my eyes closed. I even got my thoughts written down 2 weeks before, I thought I was set. WELL, not so fast, the day before I am looking over my talk and feeling that I need to add some scriptures and direct my scattered thoughts into one place. WELL, I had no idea that would be little harder then I thought. But I loved the time I got with the scriptures and my thoughts alone. I also thought that it would be cool to sing "Words I would Say" by Sidewalk prophets. It would be cool, and intimidating and nerve racking, BUT I DID IT!!! I am proud of myself that I was able to overcome my fear... yeay...
It is funny, you know when you are asked to speak at Church about something and you know that you will have to live through some experiences to prove yourself that what you are talking about you are living. So, I talked about The steps of Being happy and Celebrating every day. Now I think I am being tried if I stay happy when financial problems come along. This week Jim hurt his back and had to skip a day at work, then on Friday he had no patients and on Monday he has Jury Duty, does it really have to happen within one week? Seriously. When I ask Jim if we are going to be OK, he Says : " we are doing what we are suppose to be doing, Lord will take care of us". A lot of times I find that he has more Faith then I do, I am grateful for my hubby.
