By Small and Simple Things

Hey All!

It was a long and great week! We met with Miss Shelby again this week and realized something great! we have been meeting with her for a good amount of time now and it was easy to think that we were never going to get anywhere with her! It wasn't until the night after our lesson with her that we realized something huge. As we were talking in our beds that night and thinking about what we could do to help her progress it dawned on us. Shelby has been progressing the whole time. We began to realized that Shelby might not be make leaps and bounds in progression but that her countenance had changed. We had gone from a sad, dark, girl who loved to read witchcraft to a girl who smiles and tells us about her dreams, and reads the Book of Mormon, even if it is just a verse or two. It was huge for me to realize that miracle in her! That over time she had changed! That our changes dont have to be huge and immediate but that we sometimes the most meaningful changes are the ones that take time. I think there is a reason that we live a whole life time instead of just one day. We came here to learn and to change:) 

We finally got some snow up here in the Dakotas and It is crazy! It definetly feels like it is wintertime now! Bring on the snowball fights and hot chocolate!:) Hope that it continues to fall so that we can get the fully experience of North Dakota this year:)

We have been having a wonderful time learning more about a Savior and about this christmas season!:) I hope you all can have a wonderful season and enjoy Christ Spirit throughout the season:)
