Sunday found us at the Jupiter Ward about a half hour north of our location. With some encouragement Melody is doing good in her primary class.

We took our batteries with us to charge again.

I love the church. It is like being home every time I walk in a building. The people are different but the organization is still the same. There is a temple trip planned for April and I am all set to go. Melody has a primary activity this Saturday.

We ate our picnic on the church lawn and then met with the Bishop Brad Overland. It is always refreshing to have the initial meeting done so the Bishop knows who we are, that we live on a boat and want to sail around the world and yes my husband and me share different opinions on religion now even though we were married in the temple.

That last one has been the rockiest issue for us. Being financially poor doesn’t really bother us. Barry is awesome in his support for bringing the kids up in the church though and we both want to give our children the best form of education possible. There are so many goals and things we have in common. Why fret or argue over the differences?

I listened to a talk today in Relief Society by Elder Eyring on being a peacemaker and he said to focus on the things we have in common and be generous in our judgment of others and be less quick to forget the Lord’s example.

I really admire my husband’s honesty. He is an amazing man. We may both be a little crazy, but we stick together pretty good, kind of like crazy glue, he he he.

We spent some time driving around today after the children fell asleep. There are two different bridges in the Jupiter inlet and we would only be able to sail under one bridge. We have thought of moving up the intercostal waterway to be a little closer to the chapel.

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.
