Grateful (:

This weekend was GREAT! In the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints every six months there is a meeting called General Conference. This is a time that everyone comes together and listens to our living prophet and his apostles. It is a great time to feel the spirit and to receive revelation (answers to questions you may have) from the Lord.

So much can be learned from watching this and it is amazing to feel the spirit so strong in one place. I have to say that this weekend was one of the best General Conferences of my life (other then last Octobers of course). The talks seriously were just what I needed to hear and gave me so much comfort.

As time gets closer for me to leave I am getting more and more scared, I start to let doubt enter in and I feel unqualified for the journey I am about to start on. Every time this feeling comes into play, the Lord soon counteracts it with a message from someone or something to make me feel like I can do it. One of the most meaningful things that I stumbled across is a saying that states,

"God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called"

When I see this saying or hear the prophets and apostles speak about missionary work I feel that I can do it, I KNOW that I can do it. It will be challenging, but it will be so worth it. I invite all to watch conference. It will bring you happiness and joy beyond belief. If you don't believe me then try for yourself. You will not be disappointed at all. 

The link that you can watch conference at is

Here at this link you will find all of the recordings of General Conference. I recommend watching Sunday Afternoon session by Elder Jeffrey R Holland or Sunday morning by Elder L. Tom Perry. All of them are worth watching though so watch whatever one looks good to you! (: 

I know that this gospel is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that because of the feeling I get when I read the Book of Mormon, when I watch General Conference, When I attend the Temple and when I share the gospel with others. I am truly blessed to be a member of this church and have the knowledge that our Redeemer Jesus Christ lives and loves us. You too can come to the knowledge of this by acting. Invite the missionaries into your home and listen to the message they have for you. If you try with true intent pray to know he will make it known unto you and your life will forever be blessed!

Stay Close

I have been thinking a lot about how I can improve myself and how to stay close to the Lord in this time that Satan wants me to fall away... I feel at times I fall into the trap of falling away from what I need most. It is a  common occurrence for this to happen to the natural man. But what we do not realize is that we are falling into the trap Satan wants us in. We are putting on chains ourselves, and he makes us think we cannot get out and there is no point to try. I have been here many times in my life but what we too often forget, is that Our Heavenly Father loves us so much and will do anything in his power to help us get out of the snare we are in. That is what I love most about this gospel, He knows we will make mistakes and because of that he has created a plan for us to be able to return to him. He sent His son to walk on this Earth, to be mocked, and persecuted. We have no idea at all how much we are loved. It is such an awesome feeling to know He is always right there cheering you on. I can not, nor do I want to, imagine my life without this truth. It has saved me from myself more than once. I think one of the biggest things is knowing that it is pure laziness to let Satan win. We have the tools needed on this earth to be able to stay strong and fight for truth and righteousness.


I will think and pray for those people in Manchester, England. They are always in my heart and in my mind. I will prepare to serve them and help them come back into then fold of Christ.

66 days till the greatest blessing in my life!

Waiting Game

This waiting game has been a bumpy ride. I never thought I would be able to think about some place I have never been as much as I think of England. It is amazing to me that I love the people there already and I do not even know them. I just want to get there already.

Some days I feel like time is going so slow and the things I need to do are no where near being complete.But then I realize that everything happens in His time and I need to relax. I know that He has a plan for me and that everything will work out how it is supposed to. This is one of the most comforting things about this process of waiting. That even though I feel stressed about every little thing and I feel like things are not getting to me soon enough, I know that it is all in his game plan.

I love this gospel and the joy and comfort I get through it. So grateful for my friends here at school that have been here for me every step of the way. And my family that have been so loving and supportive about my decision even though they don't really know what it is all about. Overall I think the waiting game will be pretty nice even if there are bumps.

71 DAYS!

I have not blogged in a while. Sorry guys. It has been crazy here at BYU-I. Between trying to get ready for my mission, school, and work I don't have time to think about what I want to blog about. I do have a lesson I have been learning for the past few weeks though, and here it goes.

The last few weeks have been stressful. I think about how much I have to do, and what I need to be doing to help others and prepare myself to serve and I feel that I always fall short of getting myself prepared. Satan likes to throw wrenches in the plan, I feel that the past few weeks he has been trying to change my mind about serving. For a while he was getting the best of me and although I knew serving was what I wanted and what I needed to do, the situations around me were telling me to stay home and be here for support. I remember crying often about it. I was angry and I didn't want to do anything. One night however I was reading my scriptures and this is what I read.....

 2 Nephi Chapter 10:23-24

23 Therefore, cheer up your hearts, and remember that ye are free to act for yourselves—to choose the way of everlasting death or the way of eternal life.

24 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, reconcile yourselves to the will of God, and not to the will of the devil and the flesh; and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.

This made me realize that our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy... He wants others to be happy as well. I realized right then that that is why I wanted to serve. It would make me happy, it would bring happiness to those I teach and most of all, It will bring happiness to those friends and family that I leave behind for a short year and a half. This changed my whole outlook. We should not be discouraged, afraid, or unwilling to serve for selfish reasons. We must share the gospel with all those around so that they can be as happy as we are. We are the ones who have choices, we have the agency to chose what we want in this life and who we will follow. He loves us so much that even when we make a mistake we have a way to correct it and he doesn't take our agency away. Satan works hardest on those who are about to do great things. But those who are going to do great things shall not be moved, well at least not this one (: I am so grateful to have the opportunity to get out there and serve.

The temple is an amazing place

Man January 26, 2013 was one of the best days I have ever had. I was able to go through the Rexburg, Idaho Temple and receive my endowment. I was so relaxed all through the temple and I could feel the Lord's love for me. It was so amazing to be able to feel the love so strong of the savior and of my loved ones that have passed on before me. There is no doubt in my mind that they were all there with me. I could also feel that what I was doing was the right thing. The decision to serve a mission at this point in time is what I need to be doing with my life and the confirmation of this was a real treat to have. I love this gospel so much. I cannot wait to go to the temple over and over again and grow closer to the Lord!

Temple Tomorrow!

Oh my word time flies by really fast. I am going to be able to go through the Rexburg, Idaho Temple tomorrow night! It feels like just yesterday that I was a 12 year old little girl with the goal of going to the temple one day and getting married for time and all eternity. BUT it is so wonderful that the Lord has a plan for each and every one of us. If you would have asked me back then if I thought I would serve a full time mission I would have looked at you like you were crazy said "HECK NO" in an enthusiastic voice. I am so grateful that my mind was changed with time and that the experiences and blessings prepared me for the next step in my life. Heavenly Father really does have a tremendous plan for each and every one of us and through many instances in my life I have come to find that this is a huge truth in the church. Never believe that you do not belong somewhere or that what you are going through is unnecessary. The Lord knows what he is doing and it is up to you to rely on him to find out what the lesson in that particular time in your life. If you find yourself run down and tired keep going. Remember the Lord gives his biggest battles to his strongest soldiers. It will get better just ask for His help.
