I almost forgot Nancy!


This is my new friend Nancy. She just got baptized yesterday and it was so remarkable to be a part of her conversion. Ok. Let's be honest, she is golden so we didn't really do much to convert her because she has got that pure and simple childlike faith; but the missionaries taught her several discussions at our house and it was one of the more exciting things that has happened to me in a long time. She is so sweet and beautiful and I am so happy that she decided to be baptized. It was a really neat experience-one in which I am ashamed to have never participated since being a member of my church my whole life.

Hey Ashley! I accidentally came across your blog, when surfing on the net...

Wonderful baby-pics you have! I've got a three year old son called Leo, and a 6 month old daughter called Pearl myself.

Also: the photos of your entire family, with mountains in the background; are they from where you live? Absolutely fascinating sceneries! You are lucky to raise a child in a place that beautiful!!!

Good luck with everything & blessings to your little family!

Hi Mari. Thanks for checking me out all the way from Finland! I tried to find your blog but am not sure where to go...if you come back, drop me a link. That picture is in Idaho. It is about my favorite place ever, but I live in California which is rather beautiful as well. Thanks for stopping by!

THat's really nice that you were able to have someone in your home to have the discussions. My dad has been in the mission presidency for 7 years so I guess we've always had that around in our lives and I've taken it for granted. You've inspired me to be a better missionary!
