Spirit of Elijah

I'm sorry I didn't post for you last night. After a long day starting with getting my sweetie out the door to the airport, then taking the kids to church, I came home and took a 3-hour nap. We had some of the kids over for dinner and when I finally sat down at the computer to write something up for you, I decided to check my email first.

Family Search had sent me a name.

Now I'm not big on doing my family history this way because Grandpa and my sister are always working on putting together our family tree, so I generally work on writing my own history rather than researching the past. But for some reason, I pulled things up and decided to look.


Three hours later, I had found 22 new relatives in 2 different lines of my mom's family. It was easy with the hint from Family Search and actually kind of fun! I reserved their names for temple work and while I was super excited, I also signed up to be an usher for the Jordan River Temple Open House in April. I even signed up Crafty and Scout to be dancers in the cultural celebration.

Life continues to get busier and busier. At least I got a nap.

Wow, I loved that you found some names for temple work; sweet! I like that you are working on your history; awesome! I do have a plan to do both of our histories; not happening yet!
My husband signed us up to be ushers too; I'm excited for the opportunity. We were able to help with both the Las Vegas Nevada temple open house and the Spokane Washington one. This is all so exciting.
Blessings and hugs!
