Living Carefree at Home

For the last six weeks I've been home chillin' with my family. One of the benefits of current benefits of living at home:

Working out in my maroon argyle socks without a care in the world.

Heck yes.

One Reeeeturn-da, Let's Reeeeejoice-ah!

Yes friends, I'm back!

I completed my full-time mission to the Arizona Mesa Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints just over three weeks ago on 9 February 2010.

My mission has changed my life, I truly loved it. I loved learning and serving with the fantastic people of Arizona.

There's SOOOOOO much more I could say but I'll leave you with a couple of facts and quotes that capture some of the joy, humor and overall experience of being in Arizona.

"Mesa Arizona, where you don't need a mirror you just look at your companions forehead." -Me

Despite serving in Arizona I had quite a variety of weather conditions Both of my Arizona winters were in "the North" at an elevation between 5,000-6,000 feet. So I experienced snow,ice and even got a chance to go sledding as a Zone Activity! The coldest I recall in Snowflake was 12 degrees. I also got to spend my summer in Mesa where it was hot! The hottest I remember in Mesa was at 120 degrees.

100 degrees of fun in Arizona! LOVE IT!

"Seldom has anything of significance been accomplished without superior effort, notable sacrifice and planned determination." -My Dad

I loved my mission and will always recall it with love and happiness. I truly gained a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ and marveled as I saw the miracles and blessings poured upon all of Heavenly Father's children.
