Merry Christmas 2020

 2020 Year in Review the Hilton Family 1.0

If you're reading these words, it's most likely because you sent us a Christmas Card and we wanted to respond to you right away. Unfortunately, we haven't made a "real" card yet, or come up with "cute" things to say. But last year I (John) saved Christmas cards thinking I would respond to each one individually, but sadly that never happened. So this year, I'm not procrastinating--I'm responding to cards as they come in. But that means that those of you who were "early" with cards (early by my definition = before Dec. 25) you may have to put up with this 1.0 update.

John III is doing great! He published the book The Founder of our Peace and has enjoyed making weekly Come Follow Me videos focused on Jesus Christ (be notified when they come out each week).  

Lani is just as awesome as ever! She is an amazing wife, mom, homemaker and substitute seminary teacher. She loves all of these roles and is looking forward to 2021!

Elder Hilton is serving in the Georgia Atlanta North Mission and having incredible experiences. He sends spirit-filled letters each week and is working hard to bring people closer to Jesus Christ.

Annemarie is in her senior year and applying to colleges. Her high school has only met twice a week in person, which has led to her working 25 hours a week (on top of 5 AP/College classes). Go Annemarie!

Maria is loving being in leadership at her high school and being a mother's help (both in our home and in other people's). She's now driving and is doing great.

Joseph sets high goals in multiple areas and achieves them. Recently he memorized the Family Proclamation, The Living Christ, and the Restoration Proclamation. He also beats dad in ping pong.

Katrina is a light to the world. She is smart, funny, kind and loving. She enjoys tumbling and reading (but not at the same time).

Rebekah has been nominated by a former Jerusalem Center student as being a prime example of Christlike love. We couldn't agree more!

2020 wasn't the year we thought it would be, but we are so grateful for Jesus Christ. Because of him, we have hope--for today, tomorrow, and into the eternities!
