This blog is a journal of our assignment in Chicago, IL as missionaries for The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We will be missionaries for twelve months starting in January 2014. It is a public blog so that our family and friends can share our experience with ease. The writings here are not intended to be a political, religious or social commentary. They are the memories, thoughts and "light bulb' moments we have as we serve. We welcome you the reader.

Letter #1 New Colors

It is April 2013.
 Life is good. We are wrapped in a cocoon of family, friends, service opportunities, and comfortable physical circumstance. But, there is a gentle stirring in our hearts and minds. After years of blessed living we are wishing to give back a portion of the love that has distilled upon our spirits and warmed our beings. The way becomes clear for us----we will leave our cocoon and spread our wings. Our days will hold new color and space. We will serve as missionaries. But how do we start? After much prayer and pondering, we feel like the first step is to sell our home. A FOR SALE sign sprouts in the yard.
