Happy Sunday!

November 26, 2017

“Choose God every day. Every day, choose eternal salvation.
Because when we decide and redecide to choose Heavenly Father,
the rest of life seems to fall into place the way it is supposed to.”
— Al (Fox) Carraway

Sunday is my favorite day of the week

November 17, 2017

Sunday’s are the best day of the week.
I truly love them so much.

I get to go to Church! I get to see my ward members!
I get to pray, partake of the Sacrament, and learn of Jesus Christ!
I also get to spend time with Brady at church too.

Sundays are always peaceful, calm and happy.
They are usually filled with a lot of family time
which is never a bad thing.
I believe the week begins on a Sunday,
though most people would said Monday.
I hate Mondays.

Anyway, I made a graphic on my phone last week.
I wrote the lyrics down of the first verse of my favorite Sacrament song,
As Now We Take the Sacrament.” It’s the most beautiful song!
I am grateful for Sundays, Jesus Christ, my husband,
and resting on the 7th day. God is good.

We finished the Book of Mormon!

November 17, 2017

Brady and I finished reading the Book of Mormon! We kind of started reading when we first got married. Then we worked on it here and there throughout the last four years. I can’t believe we finally finished it! :) I’m so proud of us. It’s a long book. The only long book I’ve ever read (fat books intimidate me), and now we’re going to be reading in the Old Testament! I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much great!

I didn’t really care about school/seminary when I was in 10th grade and that is the year we studied the Old Testament, so it’s nice to actually care this time! ;) Haha Brady and I love spending this time together, and sometimes we’ll ask each other questions or what we liked most about the recent chapter we just read. It’s amazing how the Holy Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Temple all connect. It’s amazing and I love it so much!!

Never Alone

October 15, 2017

I think it’s really easy for us to feel alone. I feel that way often, even if I know that I’m not.

Sunday’s can be really hard for me. I’m not sure why, but I can experience really bad anxiety when it comes to going to Church. It’s not because I don’t want to go, or using it as an excuse. All I know is it gets hard for me to breath and I cannot relax. This past Sunday, we had a baby blessing. With that comes what feels like a billion people. We already have a big ward as it is, so it was a full house! We were all dying of heat. I just felt like I was sweating to death and being sick just doesn’t mix well.

I got up after the Sacrament and left to the foyer where it was much cooler!! I remained there all of Sacrament meeting and it was really nice. It was just me and nobody else, which I was really surprised. While I was sitting out there, I saw this picture of Jesus Christ hanging on the wall. Now, Brady and I have been in many different wards during our four years of marriage, so I’ve seen this picture in this building, for probably 95% of my life. I thought to myself, why is this wall so bare? Why don’t they get a new image of Christ to hangup? It’s so outdated. It’s as old as I am! But then I decided to take a picture of it because I was quickly reminded that all we need in life is Jesus Christ. Yes, cheesy symbolism. But it’s so true.

Christ may be the only thing on this wall, but that’s okay. Because the only thing we need in life is our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is so easy to get distracted and forget who we really want to be. I know that I want to be like my Savior. I am faaaaar from being like Him, but I do my best every day. I can’t tell you most scripture stories, but I can bear my testimony on Christ. I can’t tell you much of His life, but I know that it was incredible.

Remember, the next time you might feel lonely. Christ is there. He is always there. Even if He is the only one, He is still there.

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.John 14:18, KJV
