Being a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, is the greatest gift I have in my life. Because of my relationship with Heavenly Father and my Savior, I know what this life is really about. I dont have to walk blindly, alone or afraid because I have them right beside me. It has taken years for me to believe it, but I know they love me, I know I am a daughter of God who has a purpose. I am strong because I can reach out to them in prayer and I feel their love in the evidence they have given me. I am thankful for the scriptures, the priesthood, eternal families, the sacrament, Christ's atonement, the knowledge that there is life after this, our amazing prophet,church leaders, temples, diligent missionaries, the organization of the church,and the importance placed on families.I am thankful to have a husband who served a mission in Brazil, who married me in the Salt Lake temple, who enjoys going to church every Sunday, sings in the Choir and loves Jesus Christ with all his heart. Our marriage has been beautiful because of these things and I couldn't be happier. Having the gospel in my life is a gift everyday that I get to enjoy. It brings me peace and reminds me to love and serve others as Christ did. I am so happy we were able to go to the Boise temple open house yesterday. It was wonderful to walk through the doors again and take the kids to see what we hold so sacred. They really enjoyed their experience there. Tristin liked the gold embelishments throughtout the temple, Grace loved the babtismal font, Daisy thought the Brides room was beautiful, Willow liked the booties she got to wear on her feet, Roman enjoyed his nap and I was brought to tears just being inside and feeling God's love for us. I am so thankful for the gospel in my life that helps us become closer to Jesus Christ.I would be so lost without it.

Last year I was at Walmart when they reduced ALL their HAlloween stuff down to a quarter. Everything- huge bags of candy, costumes, clothes, decorations- it was awesome! I grabbed a few silly shirts for the kids and I let them wear them to school today- they were super excited!
