Abby turned 5-years-old. 5 is a milestone. Abby thinks so, too. (It was cute when the morning after her birthday she brought me one of her favorite outfits and told me we had better save it for Hannah because now that she is 5 it doesn't fit.) Abby is a delight in our family. She is creative, independent, happy and bright. We love her very much. Her personality and spirit are such important and needed parts of our family.

Last Friday, Mike's grandma passed away. We knew it was coming. She was a loving and energetic grandmother and we will miss our visits with her. She had a strong testimony of the gospel. I remember seeing her in the Salt Lake Temple a few times while she and Grandpa Frank were working there. I am glad that we were able to spend some time with her on each of our visits to Utah this year.

- I enjoyed Brother Richardson's talk. I've heard in a few settings lately the idea that teachers shouldn't get in the way of the learning of the students. I watched a talk given by Elder Bednar on this particular idea. How amazing it is that the Holy Ghost is able to teach all of us individually exactly what we need. The same lesson, if taught and received with and by the spirit can teach multiple students multiple lessons. Amazing.
- Recently I studied some of the women in the Book of Mormon. It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed Sister Dalton's talk a lot - especially the part about Abish. (Incidentally, Lamoni's wife was a favorite. She had amazing faith.)
- The Book of Mormon is such a source of peace for me. I appreciated President Eyring's teachings from the Books of Mormon, Elder Callister's testimony of it, and Elder Scott encouraging us to memorize it (verses, I mean).
- There seemed to be a lot of references to prayer today, specifically President Monson and Elder Cornish. I can always be a better pray-er.

- My favorite talk might have been Elder C. Cook who taught us that it is always better to look up. It reminds me of how far a simple yet sincere prayer or a few minutes in the scriptures can do on a downer day.
- I love family history and I love Elder Bednar. Last night I opened some forgotten files and started looking for info on my 3rd great-grandfather's wife. Fun stuff!
- Elder Andersen is also a favorite. My faith in and testimony of families was strengthened.
- President Uchtdorf is always reminding us of who we are. Heavenly Father has such a different scale to measure the usefulness and worth of His children. Our value is limitless. Perhaps, if we could strive to feel that all the time we'd be limitless in our power to do good.
