Oh hi again. It's been five minutes since my last post.. I'm crazy I know. But want to hear the best news? It's news I couldn't help but share. It's conference weekend. What the heck does that mean? Well my religion, I'm sure, is a lot like your religion yet something we believe in is modern day prophets. God talks to his children here on earth through His prophets. You know like Noah and Moses? Well we believe God has prophets just like Moses on this earth today. And guess what? We get to hear from the living  Prophet of the world this weekend during conference. Check it out here and tune in. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Friday Favorites and a Doggy

Ummm ok have you ever looked at dogs on KSL that you can adopt from the local shelter? Well don't. Ok but do. And go adopt them so they can have a home. Boy is thinking of getting a dog and I really want him to. He won't let us go to the shelter to just look because he knows we would leave with a dog (which is true, and which is why I'm trying to convince him that we should just go look). Anyways I want this dog:

Here's his description:
Spooky is a great dog, he's gentle, loyal and loving, so what is he doing at a shelter? He's not quite sure, but would love to find a forever home to nestle into. His adoption fee is only 75.00, this includes a 40.00 voucher to get him neutered, plus vaccinations and a microchip. You can find him at the Weber shelter, located at 1373 N 750 W in Ogden, 801-399-8280.

It's not realistic for me to get a dog right now so If you want a dog you should adopt Spooky..the end.

My Mormon Message + The Weekend

So I have a new little thing that I'm going to be doing on my blog. I'm calling it "My Mormon Message". I'm just going to journal about things that happen in my life that have to do with God and the things I believe. Some of you might think mormon?-no thanks but actually I bet a lot of what I write you will be able to relate to. If you ever have any questions about what I say let me know or go here for reliable info. 

On friday I got to go hear one of our best basketball players here at USU and his wife speak about living their religion in life. Brady Jardine told a story similar to this: (sorry I can't delete this annoying orange line)

There was a group of women in a Bible study on the book of Malachi. As they were studying chapter three, they came across verse three which says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver." (Malachi 3:3) This verse puzzled the women and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.
One of the women offered to find out about the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study. That week this woman called up a silver smith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest in silver beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver. As she watched the silver smith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities. The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot--then she thought again about the verse, that he sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.
She asked the silver smith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed. The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silver smith, "How do you know when the silver is fully refined?"
He smiled at her and answered, "Oh, that's easy--when I see my image in it.
I LOVE this story. I know that sometimes we wonder why we are given the trials we have in this life and we really think that this one is going to be the end of us. Just remember that God is with us every step and that he will not leave us in our trials a moment too long. He knows how long we need to be in them to learn what we need to so we can become more like Him. 


Here's what I did this weekend:

Make it Count

That first night in your new home
Those butterlies you get when he holds your hand
Lunch with that friend 
That first picture of your sweet baby
Talking to someone you need to talk to more often
That sweet kiss on the forehead
Your day off
That random person that smiles at you
That random person you smile at
The time you get with your loved ones
The best weekend of your life doing absolutely nothing
That opportunity you have to change someone's life forever
Make it count..and cherish it.Cherish the now because "you're gonna miss this".

Dear Professors

dear professors that use disgustingly long words to explain a simple matter during your lectures..please stop. I know you think it makes you look like you're smarter and better than us. We all know you got a PHD ok? So really, you can stop. I'd like to learn things and not have to look up your vocabulary every other sentence. Thanks.

So much is a changing around my neck of the woods. Big changes that will change my life forever are a rolling in. And I'm scared. And I'm excited. And I'm so happy. And did I say scared? It's true what people say-just as you get comfortable things will change.. But that is what makes this life, life.

P.S. guess who's in town?! Woot Woot!

One of Those Days

Some days you just have to be lazy

Wake up well after the sun rises

And still take a long afternoon nap

Watch pointless shows on Lifetime

Eat left overs for dinner

Save the homework for another day

Skip class

Put your pajamas on again in the middle of the day...

Or just never change out of them

Read blogs for a ridiculous amount of time

Not look at that planner or to do list

Cuddle on the most comfy couch in your house

Refresh by doing just about nothing
