Happy New Year

We awoke to 2015 ahead of us. It will be a year of discoveries for my family and me.

Very early yesterday morning, we sent my youngest brother off on his mission. He’s the first missionary in our family, and already, we miss him. It was so hard, not being able to text him to see how his flights went, if he made it safely to the Mexico Missionary Training Center, if he met up with other missionaries at the Atlanta airport heading to Mexico. Thankfully, we were able to e-mail him those questions and got an answer a few hours later. He did get everywhere safely, met other missionaries, and let us know when his MTC P-days (the one day of the week missionaries have to do laundry, write home, etc.) would be. We also learned that his companion in the MTC is also going to the Carlsbad California Mission like he is.

It will be a year of fasting and prayer for him and the other missionaries of our ward.

With the new year comes a new resolution to improve on my scripture study. Among many things, I intend to:

• Read the entire Standard Works this year, using Motivational Momma’s reading chart

• Study the women of the scriptures

• Study about the Second Coming. We studied a little about it in my youth Sunday School class for a couple of weeks in December. Unfortunately, some of the questions my students had could only be answered with “I don’t know.” I intend to study more so I can give a different answer next December.

• Continue to work through the Personal Progress program so I can earn the new medallion.

My overall spiritual goal of 2015: to draw closer to our Savior Jesus Christ

Learn on! ~ Mary
