This week was good. Not much to report on, so this will be short. Elder Grow and I have been biking a lot this week. It feels good to be back in the saddle again. Biking is so much more effective because we're able to talk with everybody we see. Plus, it helps us save miles on our car. Elder Grow is a fast rider! On Tuesday it was really really really windy.
In sacrament meeting in our family ward our high counselor over missionary work spoke. He is awesome! One of his quotes that I liked was, "If it's true, what does it mean to you, and what are you going to do?" It reminded me of something that President Lewis told me in a companionship study with him was the three keys to conversion: know, feel, and do. We must know and understand a true principle, feel the Spirit witness to us of it's truthfulness, and act accordingly. Most of the times we have to act on that principle before we gain a testimony of it, such as reading the Book of Mormon to know if it's true, praying to know if God exists, and not drinking coffee to know if the Word of Wisdom is a commandment from God.
I love you all! Make it a great week.
