I have been trying super hard on working on accepting gifts that are given to me, and also accepting help when given. I had recently gotten a ride from my wonderful visiting teacher Brittany, and proceeded to give her money for gas, which she wouldn't accept. I kept pushing her and finally she said: Natalie no. You know what? I want you to go home and read Doctrine and Covenants 88:33. She then wrote it down and gave it to me so that I had no excuse not to read it. :)
First of all, SO MORMON, right?? This lady is amazing. She is definitely someone who helps me to become a better person. So I read it and I thought I would share:
I liked v. 32 also so I just snuck that one in there. I guess all I'm trying to say is that it's OK to accept gifts. If you're like me and have a hard time asking for things for fear of appearing "needy", take this verse to heart.
PS. if you can find any of the other bloggers somehow on Facebook feel free to harass them for not posting. That is all.
