Hey family I sent an email last night about a family temple miracle challenge but figured you’d read a text before an email so I’ll try to sum this up in a short text. I feel like we need as a family to have miracles come into our lives and need additional help that comes with strength in numbers. I heard about this idea from a friend who said their family planned a month of service someone going to the temple each day during the month. If you don’t have a recommended, that’s ok. Do some me family history work, go to the temple grounds and pray etc. The idea is to work together as a family to bless our lives with the miracle and blessings of the temple. I’ve attached a google drive doc that you can put your name down for a day. I’ll text to remind you but please don’t feel pressured. We want this to be a wonderful experience. Please join our family for a month of miracles. Love you all Lynette
Hi sweet family this past week we started our Family temple miracle month and it has been so sweet to see the outpouring of support. I counted up 7 different temples we were able to visit from Idaho all the way to California. We have 3 weeks left and would love for everyone to participate if they can. Just a reminder if you can’t get to the temple you can still do indexing or family history work. It all helps with serving and sacrificing and helping to bless all of our families with miracles.
I decided to start something new/out of the box with my Family. Ridge challenged me almost a year ago to text my children prayers throughout the day. Although I am faithful about praying…I hesitated to send them a prayer. I believe in my son and his wisdom and felt impressed to start sending quotes/scriptures and or short video clips.. I believe by sending subliminal messages hopefully will sink deep within their hearts that they know their mom believes/testimony of the Savior and God’s plan for each and everyone of us.
Self Reliance is a Principle of Salvation:
Ponder John 10:10 “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

TEMPLE TRIP TO MOUNT TIMPANOGOES WITH GRANDMA SCHLAPPI
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIKA…LOVE YOU SO MUCH…MOM
Grandma and Grandpa Easton, Grandma and Grandpa Schlappi, Mike and Easton Family toured the Provo Missionary Training Center Expansion on August 11th. Tender feelings/emotions were felt as my thoughts turned to Ridge/Costa Rica. Missing Ridge…Mom
“Hello Elder Easton….Your angel mother got tickets for the family to tour the new MTC (two 6-story buildings add the old MTC your knew….The huge windows looking out at the mountains, big rooms the can hold large groups of missionaries listening to the visiting general authorities and other guest speakers. More class room and misc. absolutely wonderful for the many many missionaries. The many missionaries that are presently in the MTC were serving as ushers to the many visiting these new facilities. How wonderful our church leaders have made this available for the public to be a part of. Mike joined us and afterward guess where we went?????Brick Oven Pizza….awesome. That very day your darling (used to be little sister) got her drivers license. Pretty amazing! She’s so beautiful but not only that as sweet as ever. It’s so fun to watch her develops and matures into such a beautiful, graceful, precious daughter of God. Love That Girl! Love this quote I found from Elder Neal A Maxwell…..”We tend to think of consecration only as yielding up, when divinely directed, our material possessions. But ultimate consecration is the yielding up of oneself to God.” Let me close with this quote….from President Hinckley…”I love the priesthood of this Church. It is a vital, living thing. It is the very heart and strength of this work. It is the power and authority by which God, our Eternal Father, accomplishes His work in the earth.” Have a good week…Be Happy, Love your Work….smile. We love you! Grandma and Grandpa Schlappi (Remember your pioneer ancestors, those that have gone before, their sacrifices, their Faith, and love of the gospel!) We are so blessed!!!!
Afterwards we hit Brick Oven for Pizza, Pasta and Salad. Friday Night Family Fun!!
