Week 4 of transfer 6

This week we didn't do anything really. We did go to the Nebeker's and help her make blankets for Newborns in Need. While we were there we may or may not have gotten into her Halloween costumes. 
We got into a less active's home and talked to her for THREE hours, and we have a return appointment with her on Tuesday. 
Another less active family asked us today if we could start the lessons with them. That's a HUGE miracle. 
We go to an old folk's home every single week. There's an old man named Dave there, he goes by Defense Dave. He started talking to me about the Mississippi State - BYU game and started balling his eyes out. I asked him what was wrong. He told me he just loves football and God so much. 
It made me think..What's really important to me?
The Savior, my family, this gospel, the temple, and the Atonement. 
It's hard sometimes to focus on what's really important in our lives. It's hard not to focus on the crazy things that are happening in the world right now, but
I know that if we take time in our every day lives to realize what's most important, and not worry about the little things, then we will have more joy and happiness in our lives.
"I testify to you that our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, though the rains may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior will comfort and sustain us and bring joy to our hearts as we walk uprightly and keep the commandments. There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us."
- Thomas S. Monson. 
Always remember to look up and to remember what's most important. 
I hope everyone has an amazing week!
