To be Feeling that Holiday spirit.
I went back to church today. &
There really could not have been a better day for us to go back.
I loved hearing the holiday carols as I was walking up to the building, they really drew me in.
I was so excited that we got to partake of the sacrament & feel of the holy spirit.
Something I have not experienced in so long; its was sad.
Joel and I also have a new calling in church.
I am glad that we have a calling because to be honest I've never really had one as an adult.
My years of way-ward feelings toward the church and my anxiety never let me fulfill one.
& now that I have the chance again I am so excited!
It was wonderful to teach CTR 6 class today.
Amazing & uplifting to be teaching them about the Savior and his birth.
What a wonderful blessing to be teaching about the single most important event that has ever happened to this world.


Just felt the need to Say that I am a much happier woman as of the last couple of weeks.

I was feeling so depressed this past month...

Not because of the baby, she has made my life worth living & wonderful/awe-inspiring/beautiful.

I was just so tired obviously from the late nights and also from feeling lonely.
I never saw my husband except to switch off with the baby +
My home was always a mess which was a bummer.

I want to give a shout out to the Fauvers for being so helpful the last couple of weeks.

I know I would have never admitted that I needed allot of help,

so I'm glad you came in there and insisted on helping me.

You knew Joel and I needed the rest, needed the company, needed the help.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for opening up your home and your hearts to us at this time when we needed it most.
Thanks for showing us a wonderful example of what it means to have that Christmas spirit of giving and loving our fellow man, the Christ like spirit.

Merry Christmas &

Joel, Autumn & Adelynn Fauver

I also meant to ask if that is your Christmas tree pictured? It is a great photo and evokes feelings of holiday warmth and cheer in me! Love it!

I am so sorry you have not been feeling happy lately. Are you sure you did not get post partum depression? If so, you need to talk with your doctor.

CTR 6 is great! Chris and I had that calling the first year of our marriage, it was great to serve together as a couple and the kids are just too darn cute at that age! Enjoy it.

Can't wait to see you and Adelynn is Jan.

We can be a lot to take at times but I'm really thankful to have you in our family. Much love to you woman and thanks again for your open heart.
