P-Day = Preparation Day IV

It is so much fun to get pictures in your Monday/P-Day email or letter! I don't think there is anything that makes a Missionary Momma happier, except maybe that Mother's Day or Christmas Skype/call! It does a Momma's heart good to see her Missionary doing great things in the world and enjoying his or her mission!

Oh, there's sunshine, blessed sunshine
When the peaceful happy moments roll.
When Jesus shows his smiling face,
There is sunshine in the soul.

Then wake up and do something more
Than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure,
A blessing of duty and love.

“Is there not something deep in our hearts that longs to draw nearer to God? … If so, then the Book of Mormon will help us do so more than any other book."
A dear friend of mine called me a couple weeks ago and asked me if I would teach her Relief Society lesson for her. So, I got right to studying the lesson. Saturday, to my complete horror, I realized I had prepared THE WRONG LESSON!!!

As my mind raced around in circles, I remembered a video that one of our sweet Missionary Mommas had recently put together for HER RS lesson... and I realized that it was the same lesson that I was SUPPOSED to be teaching!!! So, I copied her idea and put this together!

The Gospel is true. Reading The Book of Mormon is one of the best ways to receive answers to your prayers! Take time today to...

Last year we had a fun photo competition for Mother's Day, this year we have taken a compilation of "goofy pics" and put them together for your viewing pleasure! As Missionary Mommas, we can be goofy... running around snapping pictures of Sisters and Elders that we encounter on our grocery runs, carpool drives and library trips. We cry at the drop of a hat (or song), we network better than the FBI, and we are on a first-name basis with the folks at the Post Office! BUT WE DON'T PHOTOGRAPH OURSELVES DOING THESE THINGS!!!!  HAHA!

Enjoy your soggy cereal in bed, your Skype or your call, your petunia (or other gift from your ward) ... and have a laugh or two on us! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Anna's Testimony

I had asked my dear friend Anna Carbone to share her story and testimony with me so I could share it at the MM Workshop. I was sick when I discovered that I didn't have the right cords to be able to make that happen! Soooo, I want to share this with you now! 

Thank you Anna for your sharing enthusiasm, your humor and your sweet spirit on Missionary Mommas! WE LOVE YOU!

Future MM Workshops will be announced soon!!!!
