Right at home...

I just wanted to share how much we love living where we do. The city is great, and has so much to do and things to see. It is also handy because it is close to both Kansas City and St.Louis...and the Temple! But the thing that we love the most is our ward. From the moment we walked into the church building they have been so welcoming and so nice. We have been invited over to dinners, parties, and many activities. We sort of had a not so good experience with our ward in Utah, so we are truly grateful to have such an awesome ward here. We have great friends that we do things with, and many of the girls are pregnant! There are 6 women in our ward expecting our babies pretty close together. This Friday in fact we have a dinner party, then after that I have a girls night to go to with some of the girls in the ward, and on Saturday I am going to a baby shower for a friend! I think this is one of the many awesome things about being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint, you really do rely upon your ward for support and comfort and friendship. Especially for Chance and I whose family is not so close, our ward acts as our family. I am so glad that our church has spread all over the world and you can find it anywhere you go. I do not know where I would be today without my church and the Lord. I do know that I would not be as happy and grateful for things in my life, and I probably would not be so happy to live where we do without it, and the people we have met. Needless to say, we are feeling right at home here, thanks to such wonderful people and their kindness, it really does make us feel right at home.
