Small and Simple Things

It is meaningful to me that our Heavenly Father is so aware of the small details of our lives and is willing to guide us in them. Our mission instructions included bringing a sewing kit - so I got this plastic box and proceeded to decide from my 8 drawers of sewing supplies just what was I going to need in Jamaica? I made it a matter of a short prayer and proceeded to pick out the things, elastic, iron on patches (white) and several different colors of thread...among other items. Just this week I had the occasion to use three of the exact colors that I had included - I know it is a small and simple thing, but just reaffirmed my faith in our loving Father to guide us. I am grateful for all the small and simple things in life... and love this gospel!


  1. Thank you for sharing this Mom!! It is amazing to me the small and simple ways the Lord takes care of us.

  2. I have to agree, there are so many wonderful things that happen to us as missionaries. We certainly enjoy your experiences. Thanks for sharing. Elder and Sister Elkins, LDS Military Relations, Ft. Eustis, Virginia
