When In Doubt Mustaches It Out!! (2/18/2014)

Well this week was a productive week: Both of our investigators dropped us! It was great...one through text...very classy! And my favorite investo dropped us when we said goodbye to her. She didn't want to get close to anyone else then leave... what to do? I don't know!

So, I'm being transferred out of Westpark. So is Sister Lang, and they are not putting Sisters back in...sad face!!!

I'm going to miss West park....Westpark changed me! I have come to a better understanding of the Plan of Salvation. I know that it is God's plan for us and that through this great plan of happiness we can live with our families in the next life; together forever! That's why I'm on a mission; to help others understand that plan!! It is so important to understand that!!!

I have also come to a better understanding of my divine purpose. How great am I! I Am A Daughter of God!!! I'm a daughter of the most creative being there is! How cool is that?!!!

Well, Saturday Margaret got Baptized!!! Ayayyayayayayayay!! She is an 8 year old we have been teaching!!! So cool!! She was so cute!!

When you get that chance go to mormonchannel.org and watch Moments That Matter Most. It is a great message!!!

One night we were walking and saw the Elder's bikes so I had to get a picture with them :)

Question of the day: Where will I go? Who will be my next companion? I don't know!

LOVE, Sister Violette Carlson

When In Doubt Let's Jesus Peace It Out! (2/10/14)

I love saying "When in doubt....(What ever I'm doing) it out!" It's my favorite....But that one I just started saying has been the best one yet. And "When in doubt stalk them out!" That one is pretty much the story of my life!! I just stalk people until they let me in their house and share an up lifting message about Jesus :) This past week my companion that I was with on exchanges with might have climbed over a fence? Might have... it was so much fun :)

Last Monday our Zone went tidal pooling! So much fun! Our Mission President is so cool! He trusted us to not be stupid! That was awesome of him. In the pictures that were sent I'm with Sister Burgett. My companion and her companions went to another beach... my Zone is pretty much filled with Elders and not that many Sisters; so that's kinda lame! But transfers are on the 18th so we could get more Sisters :) YAYAYAAYAYAYAYAYYAYA that would be fun!!

Oh, great job Sister Lang and Sister Carlson!!!! We taught 26 lesson this week and normally we only do 11, so we are working hard!!! Yeah!!! Next week we'll hopefully get 30 :) aaahahahahah I would like to do that :)

BTW a 7 year old we have been teaching in our ward turns 8 on the 14th and is getting baptized on the 15th! Ahahahah, So exciting!!! Cant wait for that day :)

This past Thursday:
Thursdays are booked so tight for us that the only time slot we don't have used is 8...So its a crazy day! But on those days I'm with Sister Burgett while our companions go to choir and this week we went on a sand hunting adventure! We needed sand to make a Holy Ghost jar but we had to find a park on the way to out next appointment and we only had about 5 mins to spare. The only place we could get sand was at a school play ground....School was out so there weren't any kids around, so it was fine that we were there but it was still in the back of my mind "ahhaahh no proselyting on school grounds!!!!" So we ran to the sand, got some, and booked it out of there with no time to spare and without seeing a person! :)

I have been watching the Mormon Message "I Am a Child of God" all week and it is just the best thing! It makes your heart so warm; you should check it out! Will you do that?

LOVE Sister VIOLETTE Carlson!!!! I love food, laughing till I cry, and talking about Jesus! And I'm a Mormon :)

I Had A Great Week (2/3/14)

This week was filled with fun and not-so-fun stuff! So let's start with the not so fun stuff... F

For the last 4 weeks I have had some pain in my stomach area all the way up to my ribs! Crazy! I had to stay in a couple of days this week because the pain was so bad...I have gone to the doctors and am still trying to figure it all out...could be gallbladder, not sure...? But I did a blood test that came back normal and I got a blessing a couple of weeks ago for it. I didn't feel like getting one because I didn't want to be one of "those" Sisters, ya know? Anywho, so I humbled myself and asked for one. I got one from my Zone Leader but then right after the pain came in 10 fold!!! So I was balling my freaking eyes out. The Zone Leaders were staring at me like 'What should we do?' then the other Zone Leader said, "I feel prompted to give you another blessing." It was one of the most simple blessing I have ever had. (I only share these next details of the words with you because I gained a strong testimony of the priesthood because of this experience.) It said that the pain would go away depending on my faith, and that my pain and sickness would calm as I acted in faith.  ....Soon my pain was gone...With a pain here or their every once and a while but my faith is imperfect so it makes sense for there to be some pain every so often. But because of this I know that the Priesthood is given to men for the benefit of others! I know that the Priesthood is a gift from God to women and that it is a tool for all to use, not just those that hold it!
Also, got to go back to Dana Point for a day and I got to be with Sister Jennings! AAHAHAHAHAH I loved it so much!!!! I got to see my favorite lady that I have met in my mission; she is So amazing and Crazy! Just like me! I hope one day I will be more like her!
Question of the week!! What is your Divine Potential?
Love, Violette Carlson

My Best Friends At McDonalds (1/27/14)

Today I saw my Best Friends at McDonald's!!! What??!!?!?!?!?
SO, every Monday for the past 9 weeks I have gone and gotten a breakfast sandwich at McDonald's...Why? Because I was Hungry for one! SO GOOD! So to show my LOVE I gave one of them a Mormon.org card.... next week he said that her checked it out so I gave him a Book of Mormon....and now he is reading it! What!!! SO cool! That is so awesome! We are pretty tight, the McDonald's guy and I... But then I was thinking, "Why doesn't everyone do that?" It's so easy! Just give someone a Mormon.org card and ask them, (like it says in PMG- Preach My Gospel) "Will you" check it out? Will you questions are the best!

Our investo came to church this Sunday! Agaahahahahah it was awesome! She is an awesome lady!

Sunday I turned 20...I'm a new women; I feel different, like I can change the world! Very empowered! It also has to do with Bishop giving an amazing talk on the Plan of Salvation. It was so amazing, the Spirit was so strong! and it was so strong for all 3 hours of church!! Got to LOVE Sundays!

LOVE, Sister Violette Carlson!!!!

"Will you" invite someone to church this week? Or if you don't go to church on Sunday, check out the nearest Mormon church and tell me how it went!!!
