Thanksgiving Boxes

Once again our ward was very generous this year at the Young Women and Young Men annual Thanksgiving Box Scavenger Hunt. We were able to fill SIX boxes to overflowing with cans of vegetables, fruit, yams, stuffing, potatoes and gravy, turkey, rolls, and all the fixings for pumpkin pie.

Thank you Foxboro!
Your generosity has greatly blessed many families in need.

Virtue Project

Back in January 2010, as a Young Women group we made it a goal to read the entire Book of Mormon this year as our Virtue Project in Personal Progress. Then in May our stake president challeneged us to finish the Book of Mormon by November 21, the day of our next stake conference meeting.

I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal - about 30 minutes before the general session of stake conference began!

And as I finished the last chapter in Moroni, I also finished this beautiful Book of Mormon Reading Chart flower.

I am so grateful for the Book of Mormon and the strength and power it gives me as I read and study its words. I know that it is true and that it helps us to know and keep the commandments of God. Through the beautiful words of these ancient prophets we can feel the love our Heavenly Father has for each of His children. I know I am a daughter of our Heavenly Father and that He loves me, and I love Him.
