It's been a pretty weird week up here in oh-not-so-snowy Utah. I started out the week with two root canals. This would be a way bigger deal if my dentist wasn't so AMAZING! He made sure that no only was I not feeling any pain, but that I also wasn't freaking out. The biggest surprise: I didn't really freak out at all! So, I got that done, and then on Wednesday, I went in to have two more root canals done. The biggest surprise: I didn't have to get any done! They found out that those two teeth looked much worse on the x-rays than they actually were. Talk about saving some money.
Another really exciting thing that started this week is that our ward started a Book of Mormon Challenge. In Mesa, our single ward did this every summer in the space of about two months. It takes A LOT of reading, but I love reading and I want to do everything that I can to prepare for my mission, so I usually participate. Anyway, I have a brand new set of scriptures to read from this time (THANKS MOM!!!), so it's even more exciting to go through and be able to pick out new things since there are no marks in them yet. I also have decided to go through and write down different scriptures that I find that would give me strength. I want to try to memorize these scriptures as I prepare for my mission (which I really want to go on but still don't know what is in the Lord's plan for me).
I was thinking about posting the scriptures that I'm working on when I start on them, but didn't know if anyone would be interested. Any comments? (By the way, if you don't know how to post a comment, you can either click the title of the post then scroll down to after the post, or click on the number of comments and that'll take you right to it. Hope to hear from you guys!)
Thanks for reading!
