Today we went to church in the Jupiter Ward. It is about a 30 minute drive north of us. It is going to be a great ward. Melody’s teacher is on the ball and she has a little church bag for primary.

Yesterday the Hopson’s boat broke from it’s mooring again. Thankfully they were aboard and anchored her. Barry was going to dive down and help them tie back into their mooring again today but they had it taken care of when we got back from church.

There are a couple members who live really close to us. Barry also talked to Alan (a gentleman we met at church today). He is a machinist and worked on desalinators. He said he could build one cheaper then we could buy one.

We made some great connections. They ward is very friendly and inquisitive about what we are doing.

The boat is slowly shaping up and every day I know we are doing the right thing for us and our kids. What an amazing experience we are having. I thank the Lord every day for our wonderful opportunity.

It has been a gratifying and enlightening experience to give away or sale almost everything we own, and get down to the basics of what we really need. There is so much less waste. Of time, energy, and material, I don’t get distracted into doing things that take me away from tending my children and doing the important things first.

There is more clarity and purpose in our lives. I love my life.

About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
