My Life is Great

This website is awesome! I haven’t had much time to blog lately. But, when I found this site off of the popular site I decided to put it up. My suggestion is go to the Best This Year posts and read those. They make you want to cry! My life is GREAT!


New Section

I’ve added a new section to my blog, “Asking God” and I hope you’ll go over to it and let me know what you think and add to it, etc.


Breathing easier

Well.. once again, this morning I have felt pretty stressed over my classes.  I feel like I am getting swept away and I can’t get a good footing in my work, or that when I want to make a resolution of new diligence and study within my mind I have no place to start, and that I have no more resolution within me.

So I pray. And I have faith that the Lord will deliver peace.

And He does.

He told me to read Moses 8:24 “Believe and repent of your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, even as our fathers, and ye shall receive the Holy Ghost, that ye may have all things made manifest; and if ye do not this, the floods will come in upon you; nevertheless they hearkened not.

Peace has come, as it has before. The flood will not come today, because I believe and the Lord loves me.

Suffocating in homework

Does anybody else need constant reminders and support from the Lord to know that it will all be okay? I am CONSTANTLY praying for help because of the feelings of being overwhelmed by my work load. I’m so grateful for the Lord and His love for me. It’s reassuring to remember that it’s okay if I don’t do the best, or if I’m not understanding.. it will work out as long as I’m being obedient.

Sometimes I wonder why I picked my major. Why International Relations? Do I like political science and foreign policy that much? Why not develop a communications skill set and simply focus on the informative and commentary within the world? Why not try my hand at entertainment with the film program? That would be incredibly fun, and I wouldn’t get as frustrated with it.

But, as I drove home from the library tonight I realized that maybe International Relations is what the Lord wants me to be studying. We all have our agency, and we can all pick an education to go along with.. but for whatever reason the Lord gave me the confirmation that this major would be a good one for me. He didn’t ever tell me, “Do that,” He more said, “That one is a really good idea for you.” So I guess I’ll keep going, just having faith that it’ll all work out somehow.

Psalms 18:1, 2 – I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

General Conference deserves some kind of post..

General Conference weekend.. is there no better time to feel GREAT about life?? I love hearing the prophet and the apostles of Jesus Christ speak. I LOVE General Conference. It deserves hours of study and discussion, which honestly I would love to provide. But, I have an 8 a.m. class in the morning and I need to get to bed. 🙂

Listen to this talk though. It’s in two parts. If there was EVER a talk to listen to from this General Conference listen to this one (and the prophet’s talks, because really that is the most important message for us right now.. I really want to work on my anger, as Pres. Monson taught in Priesthood Session we should). Along with Elder Holland, I GIVE MY NAME UNTO THE WORLD OF MY TESTIMONY OF THE BOOK OF MORMON. I hope you will think about and enjoy this as much as I do. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I love my testimony and knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel as it was restored through Joseph Smith.
