March Newsletter

Presidency Message
A friend of Elder Neil L. Andersen lost his young daughter in a tragic accident. The friend felt unbearable sorrow and began to waver in his testimony. As Elder Anderson laid his hands on the friend's head, he felt to tell him that “Faith is not only a feeling; it is a decision.” Elder Andersen said, “As disciples of the Lords Jesus Christ, we have enormous spiritual reservoirs of light and truth available to us . . . In our days of difficulty, we choose the road of faith” (Ensign, Nov. 2008, p. 13). President Monson reminds us, “The future is as bright as your faith” (Ensign, May 2009, p. 92). Sisters, no matter our situations in life, let us choose to press forward in faith.

Sister Spotlight
Bonnie Peterson was born and raised in Bemidji Minnesota. She was the sixth child out of nine children. She has four brothers and four sisters. After High school Bonnie attended Ricks College. Once she finished her two years there she moved to Utah with her eldest sister. Shortly after she moved to Utah she went on her mission, she served the West Virginia Charleston Mission. After her mission she returned to Utah. A few years later she decided to spend a summer in Petersburg AK. She stayed with some friends and worked in their restaurant. Bonnie learned that waitressing was not her forte’. But she did get to Salmon fish, she caught one that summer.
She met her husband Kelly while cheering for the guys basketball team at their singles ward. Kelly took an interest in Bonnie as she cheered on the teams. He knew her roommate and asked her if Bonnie might have an interest in him. The rest is history. They now have three girls Shannon 21, Leah 18 and Katie 15.
One thing you may not know about Bonnie is that she is very competitive, when it comes to sports. Her hobbies are genealogy, gardening and camping. She currently works part time as a media assistant at an elementary school where she gets to spend her days reading to children and teaching them about the library.
