Simple College Organizing Tips

Hey guys! Today is a put your hair up, clean, do homework, and organize kind of day. Tuesdays are also my designated read mission blog days. Fun to catch up on my friends’ lives. Here is an exert from Elder Mecham’s email:

“I got a Dear Elder Yesterday from a Sister I don’t know in Florida. She sent me a letter because my dear friend (Alena Helzer shoutout #yolo) put my info on her blog. The sister from Florida gave me words of encouragement and shared with me her conversion story and how she is preparing to serve a mission. It is amazing to see how the gospel affects everyone. I was so happy to hear from her and my spirits were definitely lifted.”

To that Sister in Florida, thank you! I’m sure it meant the world to Jake! He seemed really touched by your letter. I’ll keep you posted if he says anything more in my handwritten letter.

Today I have some easy and simple organizing tips for the world’s best readers.

  • Hi! I am the one who wrote him! Lol. It was really fun and I felt like I really needed to do it. I’m so happy to hear that he got it and appreciated it! 😀

  • I LOVE your idea for notecards in your mission language. I’m serving in El Salvador San Salvador West/Belize Mission so I’ll be preaching in Spanish. I’ve been looking for a way to do some type of flashcards. Thanks for sharing!
