Every new week brings different challenges and concerns, but this week must have been Satans birthday or something because we got hammered. Here are a few examples of some of the things that happened to Sister Goodwin and I which could have turned this week into a terrible one. 1. We got caught in DC… Continue reading Singing In The Rain
Bright and early this lovely July morning Sister Goodwin and I popped out of bed and went fishing with Bishop Wright and his family! We had a grand ole time and caught tons of cute little fish!

This week we went fishing with Crystal in Front Royal and on the way up her step-son turned to me and said, "Am I a Mormon?" I laughed out loud and answered him that he hadn't been baptized, but someday would be if he chose to. His question has been on the back of my… Continue reading Am I a Mormon?

As the conversation continues you'll quickly find that they're taking back everything they… Continue reading My Cup of Tea
So we have such a great opportunity every week to go and talk to hundreds of people in Downtown Frederick!
