Making a Choice of Blessings!

A beautiful choice of many blessings! What's your choice and how do you feel about it?

As the next video from Mormon Messages states:

Moments are the molecules that make up eternity (Neal A. Maxwell). 

It's not so much the major events as the small day-to-day decisions that map the course of our living. (Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley) 

We would do well to slow down a little, focus on the significant, lift up our eyes and truly see the things that matter most. 

Strength comes not from frantic activity but from being settled on a firm foundation of truth and light, it comes from paying attention to the divine things that matter most.

Diligently doing the things that matter most will lead us to the Savior of the world.

Elder Jepsen - Elder Jepsen is Going on a Mission

Elder Lee Jepsen came home off his mission March 31st 2011 and was released as planned!

Lee went to the the Copenhagen Temple and married a sweet Spanish girl on Canada Day 2011, also known as July 1st.

Now, everything is about to change. Another Elder Jepsen received his calling to serve on a mission. Lee's other brother Eric just received his calling today and is planning to be checking into the Provo MTC on his Canadian Grandmother's birthday, also known as December 6th (2011). In retrospect, it now takes a little longer for a US visa to be precessed than it did in the past and we experienced a delay in Elder Jepsen's plans. The date of departure for the US was postponed, giving Elder Jepsen an opportunity to serve a portion of his mission in the Denmark Copenhagen Mission before going entering the MTC.

Eric will be serving in the Washington Spokane Mission (the State in the US closest to his Canadian birthplace--British Columbia, Canada). 

As the green area on the map indicates, this mission covers portions of Washington, Idaho, Montana and a small corner of British Columbia, Canada.
