Boston Update

Beautiful Boston

New Church Calling
I was recently asked to serve as my church's new Regional Young Single Adult Co-Chair for New England. This area is comprised of 12 stakes in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. 
This calling from my church has a "mission statement" so to speak of striving to create an environment in the New England Region which facilitates transition from youth programs into the Young Single Adult program, foster retention and reactivation efforts among current Young Single Adults, and encourage invitations to other Young Single Adults in the area who are not yet members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
{See what I believe!}

It is a little intimidating to think of the span of area I've been asked to help watch over. But I am so grateful for the service opportunities I am afforded through my membership in the Church. I have found peace and purpose through this calling even in the short time with which I've served and have a co-chair, also recently called, to serve with me who seems very kind and capable.
Here we go!

Christmas Prep
It's been a tough season @ moments for some of us.
The man in the red suit took it pretty hard it would appear, but with a pile of mail-room deliveries like that it's no wonder. Luckily, the next day as I drove by he was back on his feet. Just needed a little breather. Don't we all ;)

New Hampshire
Day trip to cut down our own Christmas trees

I was an excellent Axe-holder, but felt like my true purpose lay more along these lines:
*Snow Angel*

 8 trees
(if you're doubting, its cus Becca and I did a freaking amazing job w/ the twine and we made them ├╝ber compact)


Let's start the new year off right folks

 In dreams I have spoken, came I unto you

In ways you would know me
Let my hand to your view

By waters and mountains have I helped you to see
My wonder, my power
What would be, made through me

Though My ways, not your ways, My sight you may share
Turn not, fear not
Assured with My care

In winds and horizons, still waters am I known
Through mists and deep mornings
My hand would be shown

See with me beauty, light through a haze
I stretch forth my hand
As I lay forth your days

Though My ways, not your ways, My sight you may share
Turn not, fear not
Assured by My care

 Mine arm is not slackened, nor taken away

Covenant, I made with you
That promise shall stay

By Me, dear one steady, I trust you to be
Let lift from thy shoulders
Your burdens I’ll ease

Though My ways, not your ways, My sight you may share
Turn not, fear not
Assured of My care

 Your tears do I catch in the palm of My hand

As I hold you and comfort
And help you to stand

For I have descended, through Me do all raise
Like sun before morning
Like mists before skies

Though My ways, not your ways, My sight you may share
Turn not, fear not
 Assured in My care

'Cross fields swept with evening, a glow do I spread
My peace I leave with you
A peace to thy head

Though unknown, uncertain, to you may it seem
Your life to Me known,
Your glory, My dream

Home Grown

My Miss Mitton left me to move to Seattle. Ganna miss that girl. She was a huge part of my Boston home life. 

Turlock welcomed me perfectly with this sight

Day trip to the city with mama and daddy-o. 
Visited Chase's new apt. Then they let me go snap-happy experimenting with my camera. 
So much to learn.

 Went to a fantastic fish restaurant, then spent the last of the evening on the wharf. 


 ~Snapshots of home~

 {daddy gave mama a bouquet of her favorite flowers for their 29th anniversary. the last 15 min of his lunch break went down about like this}

Brumsy's games

 Who needs Santa's workshop when you've got Grandpa's?

 Regular home activities ...

(Never fails, my being home marks when it's time to bathe the beast again. she doesn't know it, but she's happier when she's clean.)

Thanks for being awesome, home.
