Autumn's experience


Last night we went on a walk to the mall, and we were walking back. Autumn found a wallet on the ground. It was nice and fat, there was money in it. Her automatic thought was to find a phone number in the wallet so she could return it.

We talked about how satan would want her to keep the wallet or just the money out of it. But she didn't even want to or think of that. So, we came home, she tried to call a phone number we found on the internet that might work for her, but it was the wrong number, but was willing to make that scarey phone call anyway.

Then we found an address, she decided she wanted to take it to them, so we did that, noone was home so this moning we all woke up and the first thing she did was got ready for church so we could be ready early and go over there to the address to return the wallet.

That didn't happen, because we had the whole family to tend. But right after church we went over there she knocked on the door told the lady she found the wallet on our Stake Center lawn. She was so happy, she didn't realize she had even lost it. She opened her wallet and gave Autumn 3 whole dollars out of it.

She came back to the van smiling huge. She felt very good about it. We are very proud of Autumn and her choices to listen to Jesus instead of Satan!

Oh Autumn YOU DO STAND TALL! I am so proud of you. Standing Tall always makes us feel good. Did you feel good when you handed her the wallet?
Happy Grandma in Spokane!
