I cannot believe that 4 months have gone by so far! Tomorrow Elder Williams begins his 5th month! I have been reflecting on the many blessings our family has received over the years through listening to the promptings of the Spirit. 6 years ago Elder Williams' father, Steve, felt very strongly that Steven should complete High School in 3 years. We homeschool and I wasn't really sure if that was going to be possible. He told Steven and I that he just had a strong feeling that we needed to make it possible. Steven worked hard! He even had two years of 14 classes a day! He worked diligently and graduated High School in 3 years Valedictorian of his class. As we look back today on this we see the Lord's hand guiding our family through a righteous patriarch! We had no idea that the age for young men and women to serve missions would be lowered. We just followed the promptings of the Spirit. Today I was looking at the calendar. If Steven had NOT finished High School in 3 years he would still have 2 months of school to go and then leave for his mission! The Lord knew he was needed at this time in the field and He prompted Steven's father and made it all possible! I read about promptings and miracles in the scriptures and think they are wonderful. How wonderful it is to have a loving Heavenly Father who is the same TODAY and sends those promptings and makes a way possible for the thing to be accomplished! I am grateful!!
