Trekker's Lullaby

Have I mentioned before how incredibly awesome my parents are?  My mom is a music composer and ridiculous piano player.  One thing I love is when she combines her beautiful melodies with lyrics written by my dad.


When my older brother left on his mission they wrote a song just for him.  And after my younger brother got his own arrangement, I realized I kinda got skipped since I was hitched before I was old enough to serve a mission.


Since I missed the missionary train, once I got pregnant I asked my parents if they would write a song for my baby.

And here is the magical result.  I can't thank my parents enough for this perfect lullaby.  It couldn't have turned out better!  Love you guys so much!



You can visit my mom's music blog here to download the free sheet music.

P.S. Maybe I'm exaggerating when I say I was skipped. . .  Click here for another amazing piece my mom did for me a while ago that I'm completely obsessed with.

How Can I Participate In The Hastening Of The Lord's Work?

Get this week's lesson here.

Our discussion was soOoOo spiritually AWESOME this week.  We talked about what the word HASTEN means and why the Lord's work is accelerating today.  The discussion led to the millennium and the girls realizing how close we really are to the Savior's coming.  For some reason I have always been so sensitive and passionate about dissecting this topic and hearing what the girls and leaders had to say about it just shook my bones with excitement.  I can't wait for the second coming.

This lesson I focused on the suggested video "Our Spiritual Passport"

The girls got tiny passports to write/draw ways they wanted to work on each of the areas mentioned in Elder Packer's talk.  It came with a little photo page on the inside to fill out too just for funsies.

For my challenge this week the girls each took a selfie with a passport in her hand.  I asked them to make it their screen backgrounds on their phones for the week.  It was there to remind them to look for opportunities around them to reach out to others as a missionary.

Yup.  That just happened.
