This Blog was started while I was serving a mission for the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois and Spokane, Washington from March 18, 2009-September 22, 2010. My mom posted my weekly emails to my family on this blog. For a bit I used it to throw out some thoughts, but then decided to keep it as Sister Bailey's Blog and start a new one,

A Little e-mail
At the end of this week Nauvoo starts pre-gaming for the Sister's outbounds. We will tract the Seniors. Knock on their doors, teach them lessons and eat their food. They will call us and make appointments for follow up lessons and dinner appointments. As mundane as it might sound, we are all very excited about it. Sister Westwood and I took to teaching a gorilla and a penguin in our living room the other day. The lesson went well, but it we were hard pressed for a second opinion. In this week's District meeting President said something that I have fallen in love with. "Everything we do for the Lord should be a little hard". That is a quote that each of us could live by. The Lord stretches us and helps us grow. Growing and stretching are not always the warmest or fuzziest feelings but, as we trust in Him and let Him direct our paths, we will get where we need to go. He will only ever lead us back home.
Proverbs 3:5-6 A favorite of many.
I know that this is a little e-mail, but This is what has flooded my thoughts as of late.
