This week was really good! I had someone want to celebrate my birthday with me every day! It was great! I even got a virgin strawberry dacquiri! It was sooo cool. I felt real rad.
Although it was my birthday, it was a hard week too. I felt pretty down. The mission is hard but all you can do is rely on Heavenly Father and keep going!
Being at the temple, especially after a tough week, was great. I felt the spirit there heal me. My testimony truly strengthened of the importance of the temple. Sis Nordstrom turned to me this week and said that she will never forget something I told her. And I was like "what is that?" And she said "That baptism is the first step but we want everyone to eventually end up at the temple."
