I’m a Mormon and I served a mission for my church when I was 21 years old (just a few years ago).
To that point, it was the most important and most life-changing thing I had ever done. Quite honestly, my mission shaped the rest of my life. I will never serve in a church calling the same way, or teach a lesson the same way, or share my testimony the same way. I am a better mother because I served a mission. Sacrificing that portion of my life was exactly what I needed and was supposed to do. I am forever grateful to a kind and all-knowing Heavenly Father who sent me to a mission that covered only 10 acres but was full of 200 amazing women from all over the globe. Those women changed my perspective on the world. The Lord changed my heart.
To say I am excited to see all these women receiving calls to serve would be an understatement!
I am the thirty-something wife of a hunky semi-pro football playing, graphic designer husband and the mother of two beautiful, really smart, precocious little girls. I am also interested in all things lovely, delicious, refreshing and fun.
Living In The Present
"Sometimes we let our thoughts of tomorrow take up too much of today. Daydreaming of the past and longing for the future may provide comfort but will not take the place of living in the present. This is the day of our opportunity, and we must grasp it."
