Mummy and Daddy,
What to tell you on this frosty December morning? I never know what to write. I always assume my life is a tv program and that you are religiously following it each and every day. I forget that you're.....not....so so you know everything I've experienced. Met a man that said he
We saw Mark and Emma this week and Mark told us,
"I'm just not feeling anything. I feel like I'm just wasting your time."
We talked about things for a bit, then asked, "Have you asked specifically if the Book of Mormon is true?"
"That's why it's so important to ask specifically if the Book of Mormon is true. The more specific we are with our questions, the more specific our answers can be."
In the end, we left on the conclusion that they'd contact us, but we left with a feeling of hope. We knew how hard we prayed for them to get an answer and by the feeling we felt in our hearts, that beautiful warm glow, we know at some point they receive an answer. I love how that Holy Ghost works and how we have to rely on the Lord's timing he always puts us in the right place at the right time.
For instance, this week, my lips exploded. So I called Sister Lindley and said, "Sister Lindley....my lips exploded. Can I go to the doctor?" So.... we went to the doctors. Long story short and multiple prescriptions / examinations later I was summoned once again to the doctor's office. There I was, sitting in my favorite vinyl chair, when this doctor whisked back the curtain saying,
"Hello, You are.......Stephanie White....and you have something wrong with you. Oh....I have this medical student here with me....Let me look at you.....ah yes....I'm going to give you this cream *present the cream* apply it three times a day.....oh wait! I'm meant to have the student do this. Well...come here student. What's wrong with her?"
"I'm not good with skin conditions."
"Well neither am I, but you don't tell the patient that. So (speaking to me) I'm going to give this to you. Come see me if it worsens."
Me: So.....what is it?
Doctor: It's the cure.
Me: What biologically will it do to me?
Doctor: It will heal you? But don't use it too long or it will damage your skin.
Me: Well what's wrong with me?
Doctor: You've licked your lips too much.
Me: But It's up in my eye....I haven't licked my eye.
Doctor: Come see me tomorrow. Good by Stephanie White from Sandy, UT. Oh and when you do, I will look forward to sharing with you my Mormon jokes and converting you to the Baptist church.
Me: Oh well in that case, here's a website you can check out in the meantime. We'd love to share with you this Book of Mormon and how it can change your life. See you tomorrow.
I'm sure that's not what he expected by the way he just stared at us and we waved around the corner.
*The Next Day*
"Stephanie White...come into my office."
*trot trot trot*
"Stephanie, unfortunately we won't have- oh...you're lips look much improved- we won't have as much time together as I wish because we have some very sick children here today I must attend to, which is too bad because I was so looking forward to converting you to the Baptist church and telling you all my Mormon jokes, especially about that book."
"Do you know much about this book?"
"I must confess...no."
I proceeded to give him an ultra brief description of Christ's establishment of his church when he was on the Earth, the Great Apostasy, and how the Book of Mormon is the evidence that Christ's church was restored. He left with the Restoration leaflet in hand and said, "If you are ever in the area on Wednesdays at about 6pm and it's quiet, I'd love to have a cup of tea with you two and talk to you about this book."
"Do you have hot chocolate? :D"
I love this gospel so much. I love how Heavenly Father loves us so much he deemed it important enough to restore it to the Earth. I love the Book of Mormon with all my heart and I get right feisty when people belittle it. I love my job :D Thanks so much for letting me be here.
I love you so much I can't breathe.
Have the best day of your lives.
Love Always and Forever,
Your Sister Stephanie White
