so why does Heavenly Father give us trials? And why is it that sometimes we dont go to him for help to overcome them?
I was in the bathroom and a fly flew in and was like on a lot of sugar or somthing but it kept flying around everywhere. Then it started flying into the mirror over and over again. I thought that that was so stupid it kept doing that. But that really reminded me of how sometimes we keep doing the same stupid thing over and over but yet we seem to do it again.
Well finally the fly got what he was doing, I think, and flew away. So why cant we just realize the first time that what we are doing is stupid?
Trials are stupid. Why do we have them? I know I know, they help us grow, (hey that rhymes) but really, honestly, WHY??? I am just so thankful that I have the Lord by my side. My door in always open for him. I know that whatever the problem I, with the Lords help can get through ANYTHING.
I love the gospel and thankful for it everyday.
Thanks for being there Heavenly Father. :)

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

So I was in this fashion show last year for a company named Simdog. Amanda Simonian (a local desgner) is the owner. Well she has a show every spring and fall. Well this spring Amanda asked if would come and help her out. So I thought that she was asking if I would walk in her show. So I get to one of the practices, and come to find out I'm actually teaching the girls to walk the catwalk. I thought that was so cool. She thought I was good enough to teach other girls. I thought that was so cool. In reality, I love it even better then being in the show. I think I just love to be in charge. I am having so much more fun. I hope she asks me again in the fall to help her. If anyone would like to come to the show here is the ad. It is being hosted my the WB
Photobucket Photobucket I had a great time at the last show, but being in charge, a dream come true. :)

the first... :)

Well thank you to all for following me over here. I will be saving a whole $108 a year by doing this. Yea for saving $. :) any hoo
I have been stalling blogging cause I knew that this one would be a lot of work. I have some much to say. Ill just start with a tag that I got from Maree.

This is what you do:
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog.

So the nearest book was, of course, "What to expect when your exprecting" haha.

Odly enough I hope that this is definatly not a sign but the 123 pg was possible signs of miscarriage. "when you have a history of miscarriage, and experience either bleeding or cramping or both."
umm... gross.

but thats how the game works.
so know I tag Brittany Youngclaus, Ashley Burton, and Ashley Reynolds. Have fun ladies.

So down to the other fun stuff. It seems like when you have no time, everything happens and you dont have time to blog. Life just seems to work that way.

Ill start with a scripture that Buster read for us,

Helaman 5:12
And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

thanks Buster

now Rob is willing to give us a little lesson on how to be Rambo.

With all the YW and leaders, we got together for the Saturday morning session, (Pankcakes with the Prophets) How cool was that when they sustained the new prophet? Never seen that before. Super cool.

Now my lovely mother and I showing off in front of the camera at
"Time out For Women"

That was such a fun weekend. My mom was so gracious to purchase my tickets for Friday and Saturday. The speakers were so amazing, and so inspirational. It was really fun to go with my mom. I love that we are so close and we have such a great time together.
