The happenings of the Billy and Sheri Wardle family
What's In This Blog
I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Christmas Eve 2015
Our Christmas Eve started with Sheri's delicious corn chowder. It is really addictive and very delicious. We had scones with it.
Miranda and Tony as Joseph and Mary, I as all the shepherds and the animals. Caleb and the singles ward missionaries as the wise men, Sheri as the angel and Grandpa Scoresby as the narrator.
Missionaries shared a video with us. The childhood of Jesus from Joseph's perspective. They then asked what Jesus has done for us. I said he health me. Jesus heals. He healed the sick and the lame. He healed some by saying, "Your sins are forgiven you." He brought some deceased persons back to life. He healed the grief of his mother, by presented John as her son. He healed us all everywhere, because he has gone under all things. He has experienced all pain, all grief, all sin. Everything. He has felt it, and paid the price for it. He can heal me of all my wants and imperfections and needs. That is what Jesus is to me, and that is what Jesus has done for me.

We missed the driving around and looking at lights part. Sheri had taken the family to Vasona Park in San Jose to see lights the night before, and we were ready for bed.
We are the Wardles. I am Billy. We are the parents of 8, one in Heaven
(stillborn,) 6 birth and 1 adopted. Four are away from home, two
daughters married and two sons in the Logan area going to school. Tony,
our adopted son is 11 years younger than our youngest birth child, so
he is greatly spoiled. I have worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Utah State Social Services, part of the time working with the Ute Tribe, Uintah Basin Counseling and Santa Clara County Mental Health for the last 21 years. Active Mormon and I follow the prophet.
