so my stress levels are down!!! so thats good! all is well! life is good! Its  super cold though! like the high yesterday was only 46... not cool!!! Oh well im glad i have tights, boots, and sweaters! I am doing okay! 

So not too much has happened since wednesday!!! but the Phoenix temple was dedicated yesterday! so that was cool! my second dedication this year!! It is a pretty temple!

so the big conflict of the week is my snow suit. i want it soooo bad!!!! but i might be transferred(most-likely to the valley) and i dont have room for it. i want, but i dont want to deal with it!!!!

so I still love Payson! I am sad that i might be moved, but  its okay, nothing is set yet! i will let you know when i know. the next transfer is on the 9th of dec

I love you all and hope you are all doing well. be safe and warm! 

I have officially begun working on family history. right now i am just proving the links of out families! its so fun! make sure you are getting all the work done! there is work to be done on both sides of my family! so we all have work to do!!! we need to get it done! It really is fun!

hope you know that is am doing well! I love you!!!

so sorry i didnt write monday!!! we were in the valley at a mission leadership meeting with elder Lawrence of the seventy. it was really a stressful meeting!!! but oh well we lived.

all is well in Payson! just cold. i really dont like the winter... well the cold. its just dumb.

so we had some music changes made... only mormon tabernacle choir hymns... the reason is we are trying to be more exactly obedient... i like the rule and think it will help.. but it makes me a little excited to be home. i am excited for the change though! it will bring blessings. 

so i really dont know what to do with my life after my mission and my head hurts to much to think about any of it. so im sorry i have ne answers on what i will do when i get home. i wish Heavenly father would just tell me whre to go to school,what to major in, and who to marry... because i really dont like that i have to figure that out... maybe ill do none and become a crazy dog lady... yep lets go with that!!!  again i dont know what i will do for school. thinking about it stresses me out way to much. the thought of going back to school is frustrating and the thought of dating and getting married is just really stupid and frustrating so im just going to stay out here on a mission forever so i dont have to do either... that is my plan!!!

Life is stressful. but its fun. i like payson a lot and i really love my companion! 

President and Sister Sweeney are my favorite people!!!! well kind of!1! they are my favorite mission people! they are such a blessing in my life! they really try to help in anyway they can and i love them!!!! 

really not much has happened since last week, just lots of meetings. our eternigators are not really progressing. but we have some less active members who are so thats good!!!

well i love you all so much! i hope your week is great! be safe and have fun! enjoy church and life!!! i love you!

Hello family!

So i the blood work was normal. But i have migraines... so that sucks... so i am getting a prescription for imitrex... it should help clear it up... but that is the latest... 

Also it is getting very cold... so warm stuff would be nice! not too much but warm stuff... 

Also on halloween we got to go to the temple!!! it was so cool!!!! I got to do a session and initiatory.. it was so cool!!!! we got to the temple at 3 and left at almost 9!!! it was amazing!!! 

so the work is moving on. we have been meeting so many people!!! it the best! I love my companion a lot! we are the same person. only she is tall and has very curly hair. i love her though!!!

I really dont have much to say! I have had a headache for three weeks and it is messing with my mind!!! Its no fun! but we are working on it! i wish i could say more, but my darn head hurts!!!

I love you all though! and hope you are all working toward the temple!!!!

Have a great week! be safe!

Happy birthday Everett, Claire, and Ed!!!!

ok so i am officially moved into our new place! so send all mail to 801 E Frontier St.  #29  Payson, AZ 85541. 

I should be sending a package home soon so mom be on the look out!!! 

Transfer news. i am still stl but my comp is Sister tippery. she is from portland, i love her! 

so everyone i dont remember if i said this already, but dont sennd me real letters after January 19th... i love you, but i dont want you to send a letter and me not get it!!! 

Im feeling better than last week, but still my one hundred percent... hopefully we figure this out soon, but im not too worried... so mom dont be too worried either! 

our area if okay. we are really trying to focus on less actives. most of them are not very willing to have us over, but we will go to those who will,. we are inviting them to return or go to the temple. not just come back to church, but to make further covenants with Heavenly Father... 

Im really glad we have a lot of service here. its so fun and i love helping others out. i really do want to do humanitarian stuff when i get home, maybe not in africa because i dont want ebola, but somewhere!!! 

oh i have a memory card to send home dad. its not full but its old so here you go!!!

 I love all of you so much! i just want you to know that!

okay so i went and had some blood work done... now mom can testify that i hate needles and that my blood hates leaving my body. but the needle didnt even phase me this time and i filled the two viles  of blood in like two seconds. it was a blessing! Now to wait for the results!! ill keep you posted..

so everyone here has cancer... its really sad!!! no more cancer!!!!! I hate cancer!!! 

So i am doing well! my health is fine! just the usual unanswerable stuff, but that is nothing new for me:) someday i will have a perfect body;)

I love you all and hope youare all doing wel!!!

hello family

so im sick... again... thankfully the stake president up here is a dr and he is going to look into figuring out what is going on. so tomorrow i am off to get some blood work done... 

dont panic though. im not dying or anything( well as far as i know). they just want to rule some things out and try to figure this out. i havent been healthy since april...  that is a problem. 

Okay so i am not being transferred as far as i know. but i am moving! the apartment we are in is not safe so we are moving to a better place! the new address is 801 E Frontier St. #29. the rest is the same. so there is that!

okay you might have noticed some changes on my facebook. no we dont have it yet. but we were asked to get it ready. i cant talk to you unless you have a referral for me. but dont be worried if you see im on!!! 

Things are going pretty well here. we went to the Phoenix temple open house with an investigator. It is a very pretty temple. the baptistery is my new favorite!!!! It is super pretty! go look at pictures!!! 

well i really dont have much to report since ive been sick... but is am alive and well!!!

I love you all!!! choose the right! and be happy!

well i am still alive... i dont know why i wouldnt be alive, but just so you know i am alive! 

I got the package from dad.. it was great! thank you! the socks are great and i love the music. 

Grandma Judy and Poppy i hope you have great birthdays!! Poppy I hope you are feeling better!!! i LOVE YOU TWO!

so i have a question... who sang the devil went down to Georgia? like the good version from stone mountain? 

so this week we were doing a service activity and a pole fell and hit my arm!!! i have a supe cool bruise from it and it really hurts, but it looks awesome! 

really not much happened this week. our appointments all feel through... we spent a lot of time driving from heber to payson... i had to drive at night, in the rain and fog, while having to watch for elk and deer... on mountain roads... dumb!!! but we lived... 

### transfers are on the 28 of this month, so like two weeks. so keep that in mind. 

Also after january 19th dont send me letters or anything! mom and dad you can, but everyone else no! i am not telling you when i am getting home and i dont want you to send me a letter that is will never get! so i love you all, but ill just wait to talk to you when i get home!!

so life is great! fall is weird here. its cool, but there isnt much color change. i live in the pines... lame... oh well. you enjoy it for me! 

I really dont have much to say. it was a pretty uneventful week! and this week is looking to be the same. it is fall break here so everyone is out of town... so work will be slow for a few days... 

Well I love yall! I hope you are all loving the blessings of the temple! because i know you are all going as much as you can!!! enjoy it! I wish i could go to the temple more! but someday i can! 

HAve a great week! be safe and healthy! I love you so much!!!
