T-7 Days

Well, here we are. One week from entering the Missionary Training Center, one week from learning Spanish (for real this time), one week from teaching others about the gospel of Jesus Christ, one week from a lot of new things! Everything is bought and prepared, and so obviously I'm freaaaking out. In a chill, you-would-never-know-by-looking-at-my-face kind of way. Don't get me wrong, I'm also extremely excited, but something this important doesn't come around without its butterflies.

I'm pretty (super!) new to this blogging stuff, but I hope somebody will find what I have to say enjoyable and useful. Most of the stuff on here will be my words and experiences, edited or copied and pasted by a member of my family. We'll see how that goes! If you have any tips (literally anything, new title, content, anything) comment, let me know. It'll be an adventure for everybody.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is one of the most important things in my life. It makes me happier and more successful than I could be on my own. The Atonement of Jesus Christ buoys me up and reminds me on a daily basis that we do not have to struggle through life by ourselves. Joseph Smith restored the gospel of Christ on Earth as it was when Christ lived. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. Families ARE eternal. I know it. God loves every single person individually. He understands us and wants nothing more than to give us guidance. Guys, I KNOW these things. Alma, a Book of Mormon prophet, said 
"Yea, and from that time even until now, I have labored without ceasing, that I might bring souls unto repentance; that I might bring them to taste of the exceeding joy of which I did taste; that they might also be born of God, and be filled with the Holy Ghost." Alma 36:24
He taught so others could feel the joy that he felt. That's why I'm serving a mission. I want others to be happy like I am. Thanks for all of your support and love!  


  1. I'm so excited and proud of you. You are one of the good ones and I am a huge fan. The world needs to hear what the gospel of Jesus Christ can bring the individual and family. The world is crazy and almost backwards right now. People are afraid and unsure of what to do. The gospel has the answers. I tell my friends that are worried about the affairs of the world, the Bible and Book of Mormon prophets all teach about the coming of Christ. Live your life like it is going to happen tomorrow and you have nothing to fear. That doesn't mean perfection. It means trying to be a better person tomorrow than you were today.
    Love you bunches. I feel like a proud auntie. Now if you attack this mission like you attacked the net, you are going to crush this.

  2. Can't wait to follow your adventures!!
