Has another week seriously gone by? I'm racking my brains trying to remember what actually happened this week... Ha the bus conversations this week switched from the weather to the Badgers killin it in March Madness! Everyone is super pumped UW made it to the final four! People here have soo much spirit, everyone is decked out in red and white. Go Badgers!
Preparing for the Temple:
This week we did lots of finding, but also had some lessons with recent converts who are getting ready to go to the temple! Shaun and Janet were baptized just over a year ago and are now preparing to go to the temple to receive their Endowments in May. We had a lesson with each of them this week and they are both so ready! It has been fun to see how their testimonies have grown as they have been preparing to go through. Oh and yesterday Jada got her temple recommend so she can go on the youth temple trip next month - so excited for her!
General Women's Broadcast:
On Saturday night the Relief Society got together for a nice dinner and then to watch the Women's General Broadcast. The broadcast focused on the family a ton which was cool because we have been trying really hard to find families to teach! Elder Eyring said when the Savior is the center of each of our individual lives our families will be strengthened. I think the inverse of that is also true that as the Savior becomes the center of our families each individual family member will be strengthened. It makes me think of the part of the Family Proclamation where it says, "Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ." I definitely saw that to be true growing up and am grateful for this chance to help the families here in Madison come to experience this as well!
Youth 5th Sunday Lesson:
Sister Schlosser and I got to teach the youth 5th Sunday lesson with Elder Harding and Elder Mac! We talked about missionary work and had fun interacting with the youth. We split them up in groups and tackled different questions turning to Preach My Gospel and the scriptures. It ended up being really fun and I think the youth learned a lot about what they can be doing now to prepare and how they can invite their friends.
Because He Lives:
If you haven't seen the 'Because He Lives' video, stop right now and go to lds.org and watch it! Ha we have been telling everyone about it and giving out cards like candy! Yay for Easter and for the glorious resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know He lives. I know He loves us. I know it's only through Him that we can return to our Heavenly Father and live happily with our families forever!
That's all I've got for ya.Hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend and enjoy General Conference! As we come to conference prepared to be taught and willing to act on the revelation we receive I know Heavenly Father will bless us with answers to our deepest thoughts and questions! How grateful I am for the living prophet and apostles who testify of Christ, for a loving Heavenly Father who sent His son, and for a perfect Savior who paved the way for each of us!
