Yesterday Scott had the wonderful opportunity to go down to Galveston, TX with other members of our ward to help in the clean up efforts with hurricane Ike. He said it was an amazing experience. There were homes ripped from there foundations, boats scattered across the freeway and destruction as far as you could see. I was so proud of him!!! the men all had to meet at 3 am and were there until late that night. He felt so good that he was able to help. Our family has had an amazing few months of real spiritual growth. With Scott not working, we have had to put our full faith in the Lord for comfort and strength and we have embraced any opportunity to serve and show the Lord of our love for him. We have been so blessed and have had some amazing spiritual experiences as a family. I loved Conference last week!!!! one phrase that stuck out to us was that you can't have fear and faith together...so we choose faith. I know the Lord loves us and is aware of each of our struggles and is there to give us peace comfort and direction. I am truly grateful for our many trials over the years because they have been great opportunities to stretch and grow. Can you tell it is fast Sunday. Scott and I both got up and bore our testimonies, which is so scary to do for both of us.
