Skyline Ward

Today was the first day in our new ward!! We are in the Skyline Ward in the Queen Creek Arizona Stake. Going to our new ward brought me so much joy!! I didn't fully put my heart and mind into the last family ward we were at, we were at my moms and it just felt like a temporary ward. I know, thats bad of me. But I knew it wasnt permanent and in my mind I didn't even know how long we would be in that ward. But knowing that this is our permanent ward and we will be able to get to know the people in our ward and have callings and everything makes me feel so happy!! I will heart still belongs to the singles ward. bahah. jk. sorta ;)

 I was a little skeptical when we first got there. But like they always say, you can't judge a book by its cover! I don't think we had planned on staying the whole time but after we went to the clerks office , a brother told us to come with him to Gospel principles. So we went to that. Then I just did not want to leave. I really wanted to stay for Relief Society! I was just so happy to be there. The sisters in Relief Society were soo nice. I had quite a few people come up to me and say hi and introduce themselves and these other 2 sisters told me to come sit by them.

There arent very many young couples...atleast not as young as us. And we are pretty sure we are the only couple without kids in that ward haha. But its a smaller ward, and im so so excited to be in it!! Theres a relief society poolside potluck coming up that I am already excited to go to!

I actually spoke today too in relief society! that doesnt happen very often ha. I was just so happy to be there and spirit was so strong I just felt I needed to! It felt so good to go to church today. I am so excited to become a part of this ward and get a calling. I really want to focus on getting my Patriartical Blessing. sure I spelled that wrong. I find myself at peace knowing that we are going to become a part of this ward and it makes me feel so strong and happy knowing that blessings that will come for Chadly and I.

Today, I realized again why this church makes me so happy. It was one of the best decisions of my life to join this church.  I can't wait for all the more happiness thats going to come to us!
