The Best Day of My Life

Love this chick. 

Its no secret I'm a mormon. If you didn't know now you know...ya know (get it?). If you are interested in my conversion story I'd be happy to share just comment and I can email you. On December 17th 2011 I was baptized. So this last week was my one year mark as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS). To celebrate I made a trip through the temple. I tell you what, when I first joined I didn't understand for the life of me why these people were so into temples. I mean people would make a trip to walk around OUTSIDE! Whuuuuut?! Oh boy do I get it now! Every step of my journey has brought me closer to a heavenly father who I am sure knows me personally. This step was one of them.

Something that helped me understand that better was the people that were around me on my special day. Let me tell you folks (get ready for some bragging) I have the best girlfriends! These girls are the closest thing to sisters I have ever have. Kristen and Tiffany have listened to me complain about boys, clothes, dealt with my stubbornness, and STILL answer my phone calls. Thats true love right there. Their faith and examples have been the biggest inspiration to me ever. Not to mention I have been spoiled with the best bishop, his wife, and presidency in all the land.

 I have trouble letting people in. The things I've experienced over my life have taught me its safer to keep people at a distance. Recently I have been struggling with that. This church and God have brought me to some of the most loving, caring, patient people I have ever met. I've learned that I am not a burden on people because we share in each others burdens and joys. I've learned that those silly kids on bikes with name tags and change your life (not to mention are someones son so don't be so hard on them pleeeeease). It is so worth opening your mind and heart to people.
