Sometimes I wish I could lay in the grass and close my eyes and feel the hot sun.....
My life has been noteworthy good!
I have a wonderful family!
I have wonderful friends.
I am very blessed.
Today, I had a good experience at work. Anna and I were at this large career fair for high school students. We were next to several Texas Tech booths. Towards the end of the event, Jennifer ( the lady next to us), started to talk to us. Some how it came up that I would be leaving and she asked where I would be going and why. So I told her about my mission. She then proceeded to ask "can I ask you some questions?" - OF COURSE (I didn't say it that excited, but I was this excited). She asked me if Mormons hated black people (this is what she heard when her and her family were thinking of moving to SLC). So I of course told her we do not. She then asked me some other things. Anna chimed in and said that she was not a member but loved the church. She said that there are a lot of misconceptions about the LDS people. After, the conversation with Jennifer, I invited her to come to church. It felt completely natural, simple. She said that she was not interested in coming to church, mainly because her husband would not agree. She was so glad that she asked me these questions. She said that she felt so glad knowing that LDS people did not feel/act that way.
This was a testimony builder to me that we need to speak up more. We are not weird. We are normal people that happen to believe in Jesus Christ and Prophets!
I really do love the gospel --> love, peace, truth, happiness and joy!
The gospel helps me feel sunshine.
This past weekend, I was able to go to the temple. It was an amazing experience. I felt so loved - from Heavenly Father, Family, and Friends.
I am so glad that I am surrounded by amazing people.
