Book of Mormon Study - Moroni 6

Last week was nuts!  I didn't find time to breathe, let alone blog scipture.  This week I repent.  LOL

Bruce R. McConkie said, "Before baptism, the seeker of salvation believes in Christ and gains a knowledge of the plan of redemption, of mercy and of repentance. He feels in his heart that through our Lords' atoning sacrifice man can be reconciled to God, and he desires through repentance, to rid himself from the grasp of justice and find mercy in the arms of the Lord."

Being forgiven every time one repents with real intent (8) is mentioned before in the scriptures. How grateful I am for that- because heaven knows (as does my family and friends!) I have need for forgiveness time and time again! OK... everyday!

But the one thing that struck me this morning was in verse 1. It says: ...and they were not baptized save they brought forth fruit meet that they were worthy of it."

Most of the time this verse is kind of lumped with the second one, that talks about having…

Week at the Boyacks - Week 24 - Chapter 3

After two of the longest yet rewarding and joyous days, Wednesday was a letdown. We gathered all the items we had borrowed for the party, returned them and put them all away. Most of the day was spent cleaning… cleaning up the flood, cleaning up after the wedding stuff dumped in the house… cleaning up after having guests. It included tons of dishes, laundry, and general pick up. By late afternoon we were ready to head over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s house.

We got a much later start than we had hoped. As a result, we got to drive over the pass in the dark and through a snow storm. As we dropped over the hill where the highways meet we were shocked at the chaos. Cars were parked willy-nilly to put on chains. I just threw it into 4-wheel drive and kept driving. It really wasn’t all that bad. Then again, I learned to drive in the ice and snow.

Thanksgiving morning we all packed up and went to a race – the I Love Pie Race. Anna found the race for us. The cost to race was …

Week at the Boyack's - Week 24 - Chapter 2

Chapter 2

With only 3 hours of sleep, Tuesday morning came far too early... and we hit the ground running.

Kalisha was a doll and arrived by 7am to do make up for everyone and hair for all the bridesmaids. Myles’ sister worked on McKay's hair. Per tradition, we had ice cream for breakfast. I know. Healthy. Everyone seemed happy and cheerful despite the pouring rain and the lack of sleep.

We had hoped for a few pictures before the wedding, so Myles and McKay hopped into their car and I hopped in Sharlene's van (Sharlene did a great job taking pictures for us. Everyone should hire her) and we headed north up the freeway. Every once in a while the weather would tease us with a glimpse of blue sky. Intermittent rain and blue skies mixed with some confusion of who was getting Myles' mom and grandpa to the temple made for a few tense moments on the drive. However, we were able to lighten the mood with a few jokes and reassuring phone calls.

My favorite was a conversation betwee…

Week at the Boyacks - Week 24 - Chapter 1

This week has too many experiences that must be remembered to make just one post. No one would read it because this week is a novel. Therefore, I've decided to take on this week in Chapters.

Chapter One

Monday morning seemed like another Monday morning after staying up later than I should because we "had" to watch Galaxy Quest because Myles has never seen it. I must add that he STILL has not seen it. He was the only person smart enough to fall asleep. LOL. But don't worry. He is not out of a Boyack Family classic. I am sure that John will make sure Myles will see it someday.

I was a little blurry as I stumbled out of bed. It was going to be a busy day.

After breakfast, we headed up to the church to start preparation for the big par-tay to celebrate McKay and Myles getting married. I am not a fancy person, but McKay is, even if she doesn't admit it. Kimber and our good friend Megan had searched Pintrest for ideas and we finally had an idea that we thought we could …
