Temple Square


Sister Smith

Bang-in- Week 33


Really thought this week was going to be beautiful weather! I was thinking I wouldn't even need to wear a jacket anymore but I woke up and what do you know! SNOW again!! All the little flowers got mushed!! Broke my little heart :'(

Other than that this week has been a breeze! It just keeps getting better and better. Sister Smith and I have not done as many ab workouts in our lives and not because we go to the gym! but because we hysterically laugh at each other and then we laugh at each others laughs and then this never ending cycle occurs. So, really I am just hoping by the end of this transfer I have abs :))) or at least I'm going to keep telling myself that.

Some fun stuff also is!! DUH DUH DUHHH I am American!! How sick is that!! I was sworn in on Monday morning and now I can finally say I'm FREEEEE. Just Joking I was free in Australia too it just feel a little more free now if you know what I mean ;) I will be honest with you I did shed a little tear but now I feel bad for teasing my Dad when He cried when he was sworn in, Sorry Dad.

And! I go bangs!! This is going to sound a little interesting at first but it taught me some very important lessons. 1. Maybe don't get bangs again 2. I look more like my Mum than I thought 3. Pray before every decision even if it's a small one (i.e. impulse hair cutting) The importance of prayer wooo it's real!!

The main event this week actually happened this morning. With General Conference coming up a lot of people come from all over the world and I got super lucky this conference to have my Grammy, Uncle, Aunty and cousins come a give me a visit, but today we had a very unique experience. Something special that we do in the Temple is Baptisms for those who have passed away. Meaning we make baptism possible for those who didn't have the opportunity to be baptized on this earth. I was able to watch my little brother Baptized my Cousins in behalf of my Great Grandparents. I really can't put into words how beautiful this experience was to watch. I was super fortunate to be able to witness that and even more fortunate to know that my Great Grandparents were so pleased with us and so grateful for that opportunity we gave them. I mean how cool is that? If that was at all confusing let me know and I will explain that way more simply haha

I am so grateful to have the knowledge that I can see my family again someday. They can't get rid of me that easily ;)

I hope you all have a good week!! Also, I miss you all! Stay safe!
Sister Whitmarsh :))))
