MISSIONARY FRIENDS!

Ever since the "new missionary age" announcement was made in the October 2012's General Conference it's clear to see that girls are flooding into the mission field like no other time in the history of the church! Personally, I LOVE THIS! I am so humbled to be a part of this great work! I look forward to the day when we will be able to tell our grandchildren that WE were counted as one of the many who took it upon themselves to stay worthy and true to the faith, so that when the time came for the new missionary age changes, we were ready to get out there and give it our all! I couldn't be happier for all the girls and boys who have decided to serve! Way to go!

So . . . included in the number of girls who have been called to serve are some of my closest friends! I was able to go through the long "interview/doctors appointments/application/waiting for that white envelope" process with a few of the most awesome girls ever: Megan, Sarah, Natalie and Leilani! We have SO many girls from BYU-Idaho and my home stake who I have been able to share mission experiences with these past few months! Honestly, these are the most AMAZING girls! Go get 'em ladies!

  3. Karlie, I am new to the Adobe Reader and all that. Right after I saw this, I actually found a tutorial similar to it on Pinterest. I went to the link and to edit it or anything it's saying I have to have the paid version of it. Which one did you use to make these? Hope that makes sense!

    1. Hey Kellie! So are you asking if there was an online document that I went to to make these? If so, my sister and I actually made ours from scratch! :) We're working on getting them to our Etsy store and are going to sell personalized ones :) I'll post the link later today! Keep an eye out :)
