Nauvoo, Illinois

Wow, I am so behind…I was talking with Trent the other night about this space and we both agreed it is such a fun journal. So these next couple posts are probably more for us then for you but feel free to enjoy.

This past summer my sister, Faith, had the incredible opportunity to be a Young Performing Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It’s 3 months full of dancing, singing, performing and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in Nauvoo. It’s different from a full time proselyting mission in a lot of ways but a truly remarkable experience.

Nauvoo holds a really special place in our families hearts as we have traveled here numerous times and had some truly sacred experiences. It was so much fun to bring all of our husbands back to see such a special place.

Our oldest sister, Mary-Martha, was 7 months pregnant during this trip and let me tell you, she was such a trooper. I was so impressed by everyone patience and good humor as we traveled 20 hours across the United States. We had such an incredible time with endless inside jokes and hours of fun.

One night our phones all went crazy with a tornado warning. All the girls stayed inside while the boys went to go watch the weather! It got pretty crazy but luckily the tornado missed us and we just experienced some wild wind and rain.

Faith did such an amazing job in all of her performances and it was so fun to see her again. I am so blessed to have the most incredible family and siblings. Trent kept commenting on how impressive it was that we were all so nice to each other on such a long journey, haha. It was such a great trip and I will cherish these memories forever!
