Wusss up wuss up in the real world?????
This week was the bomb digity because of Conference of course! I loved it. I have never actually stayed awake through a session until being at the MTC hahahaha. Don't follow my example. But on the real, I am so grateful for our prophet. I never really thought much about prophets before the MTC and when Thomas S Monson was up there about to fall over it broke my heart. I really have taken our loved prophet of God for granted! That is the saddest thing! So just take a minute to realize how blessed we are to have him and his apostles! Such a blessing. Anyways, if you don't know, now you know that I have always had very weird feelings about the way some people act towards people with same sex attraction and when I heard Jeffery R Hollands talk I LOST IT. I was just crying and crying. It was so powerful. For those who didn't have the opportunity to here it, (other than all the amazing things he said about moms) it was about this guy who had been serving a mission and came home due to same sex attraction and he started having so many doubts and feeling so alone.
Sorry that is literally a mile long.
This Sunday my district is starting a 40 day fast and I am beyond excited. We aren't giving up food, THANK GOODNESS. But we are giving up some of our bad habits. I am picking ten things that I think are holding me back from being the person God wants me to be. And I am going to strive to not do them for 40 days and then hopefully the rest of eternity. I know that this will help me so much and I encourage you to do it too! It might be rough at times but it will all in all make us such better people. I hope you are all doing well and not doing drugs! I miss home a lot. Especially when my comp is sick and I just sit in our room as she sleeps for 5 hours. But then I remember why I am here and how many lives I get to bless as the Lord works through my hands!
My scripture that I am ponderizing this week is 1 Nephi 7:12
12 Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten that the Lord is able to do all things according to his will, for the children of men, if it so be that they exercise faith in him?Wherefore, let us be faithful to him.
PEACE AND BLESSINGS <3 <3 <3
