Recently as I have been studying and preparing for my mission I've been noticing more spiritual things throughout my day. Mainly that Christ is everywhere! Everytime I see some sort of tree or a mountain my first thought has been I wonder why Christ wanted it to look like that? I also have seen Christ in my actions. In situations where I usually get mad or snotty I've begun to look at it with a new angle. When a customer comes in to work and doesn't treat me in the best way, where I usually would respond in a fake nice or not at all, I have been responding how I would like to be talked to. I try to understand what would I do if Christ was standing right next to me. I've become more observant and it's truly amazing to see the kindness that does still exist in this insane world. Tonight my Family is driving up to Salt Lake and the newest member of our family will join us in this very cold world. I can't help thinking how I can show her that Christ is everywhere and how can I show her that there is good in the world. I also can't help thinking that right now she is saying goodbye to all of our family in heaven. I can't wait to meet this little spirit and I can't wait to be the best example I can be!

Hello!!! And so begins my journey!!! Yesterday my mission papers were submitted! Yay!! The waiting game begins!
I literally cannot explain my excitement to serve the Lord! I truly love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful for the Holy Ghost In my life, he has helped me through so much! I know that Joseph restored the gospel to the earth and died so that we could have the church in our lives today. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet and will forever be a prophet of God. I testify that the Prophet and Apostles recieve direct revelation from our Heavenly Father and it's for the benefit of everyone! I love this Church and I can't wait to see where the Lord wants me to serve!! :)
