Ask and You Shall Receive

This past week has been an absolutely CRAZY one, but at the same time... so much good has come from it. I have been studying away for finals week, finishing projects, trying to get homework done, etc... and all the while we have been trying to plan this wedding! JoRyan had a jeep out here that we had been trying to sell for about a month. We posted in on craigslist, KSL, and some other classifieds site. It is getting really close to the day we leave to go back to Oklahoma, and we were just praying that we wouldn't have to drive this jeep back home. On Sunday night, we both said prayers asking for Heavenly Father's help to get this jeep sold. The next morning we went and parked it in a parking lot of a grocery store with a for sale sign on it and our phone number. A few hours later we received a call from a man asking about the jeep. He said he wanted to test drive it, so JoRyan met him there and let him take it for a drive. He literally drove around the parking lot, came back, and said "I'll take it!" It was a miracle! The man gave JoRyan his business card, and guess who he is? The PRESIDENT of NUSKIN! This guy is filthy rich! He said he needed a vehicle like the jeep for his wife and kids to drive in the snowy weather. JoRyan met him at the bank a couple days later to switch over the titles and get the check. He asked the man how he was liking the jeep, and he said that it was in the shop having some work done. "Like what?" JoRyan asked him... and he said he was getting a brand new engine installed, all of the rust on the bottom taken care of, a new paint job, and all new tires. "It'll only be about $30,000" he said! WOW! Why even bother buying an old jeep when you have the money to go buy a brand new one?? I think he was inspired. We needed to get this jeep sold, and Heavenly Father definitely answered our prayers!

Another miracle of the week: Cassie and Bryon took Kyler in to the doctor again about his soft spot closing up too early and to see about the surgery that they were almost positive he was going to have to have in order to stay a healthy boy. The doctor found out that something called the souchers had not fused yet, so he doesn't have to have the surgery after all! HALLELUJAH!

I am so grateful for all of the many wonderful things that have been happening lately. Sure, there have been some trials too... but the good things seem to override those by a long shot! I am so grateful for an incredible fiance who loves me and who is so close with his Heavenly Father. I am so blessed to have a wonderful family whose faith is impenetrable. I couldn't be happier!
