What Dew you want to Dew?

Not Mountain Dew. That stuff tastes like cat pee.
Not that I actually know what cat pee tastes like.
I feel like I'm digging myself in hole with this one.
Sheri Dew.
The one and only.
We got to meet her this weekend. There was a giant women's conference for all the stakes on the peninsula (Gig Harbor, Bremerton, Silverdale, and Port Angeles) and she came and spoke.
A lot of good stuff.
For the second week in a row I heard what was essentially a really great sermon on revelation.
The Spirit is so important in our lives.
We often focus on our relationships with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Don't get me wrong, those are FANTASTIC things to focus on.
But we can't forget the third member of the Godhead, the one who has been granted to us as a gift, as our constant companion.
The Holy Ghost.
As the teacher of truth, the comforter, the testifier, and the sanctifier it is so important that we not forget to come to know this person as well.
I actually think it's pretty interesting that the one we communicate through is the one we know least about.
But the promise is made to us that we can receive and know all things--through personal revelation.
That means time and effort.
Whaaat. We have to work for something?
But it's worth it.
The sad part about being on a mission is seeing people who know something is good and will help them, but because they don't want to/think they can change, they don't do it.
The gospel is simple.
Live it and you will be blessed.
It's simple but it's not easy.
Jesus Christ makes it possible but He doesn't do it all for us.
We have to live part of it.
We had a fantastic baptism last night.
Little Joseph was baptized.
His non-member Grandma came, and so did his Dad.
Actually, his grandma reminded me a lot of Gramma and Grampa Chronister.
She is a baptist, but she said she wouldn't miss his baptism for the world because she knew how important this was for him.
It made me really appreciate them for always being there for significant things in our lives--regardless of denomination.
That is true Christlike love.
Thanks, Gramma and Grampa.
Love you all.
Have a great week.
Don't suck.
