Being home from the mission has definitely had its ups and downs! There have been moments of joy, improvement, and discovery. On the other hand, there have also been moments of weakness, grief, and pain.
I think I've come to appreciate and realize that as long as we are faithful and striving to become better people, "all these things shall give [us] experience, and shall be for [our] good." (D&C 122:7)
I'm happiest when I am worthy of the Spirit. This means consistently doing the small and simple things like reading, praying, going to church, and keeping the commandments!
I know that if our hearts are filled with charity towards one another, we will be able to serve and be filled with joy!!!
