Falling together

So today has been amazing so far and I am going to burst unless I blog. Church was seriously so great. I felt the Spirit so so strong today. I partook of the sacrament, I was uplifted by the speakers, I was reminded of how very blessed I am. Then I was taught by the greatest teacher ever! Brother Kings. He has made a huge impact on my life and I was once again prompted that I am meant to be here at Dixie in St. George, Utah. I was meant to hear that lesson today. And I was meant to have these roommates that I have and learn from each of them. I have grown so much this semester already!

I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that it was restored to the Earth by Joseph Smith, a prophet of God. I am so thankful that I was raised in this church. I love it with all of my heart! And that makes me want to share it with others because I know I am as happy as I am, because of it. I want others to know that they can be sealed to their families for eternity. That they can turn to Jesus Christ their Savior for anything and everything. I want them to be happy.

Funny story. For some reason I thought today was going to be stake conference.. So Friday I was freaking out because I promised myself I would finish the Book of Mormon in time for stake conference, like we were challenged. I stayed up for hours and hours reading it. Not only was it for the deadline, but I could not put it down. Read it and I promise you that it will bring a peace and a comfort into your life that wasn't there before. And then you can learn for yourself that it's true and inspired of God, an addition to the Bible. Another testament of Jesus Christ. Anyways, I found out stake conference is NEXT week. But I'm glad I was mistaken on the date because it was a very cool experience.. 

I believe that every church has some truth. There are so many amazing people that aren't LDS that do so many amazing things. But all I know, is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the fullness of the gospel. It is Christ's church restored. We have latter-day prophets who guide us, and the priesthood to bless us. It all makes too much sense. I love it so much! And I feel like all these pieces of my life are falling together. I am absolutely loving life.

Almost a month later, and I am still so overwhelmed that I love it so much here. I don't know if I have ever been happier. I feel proud of myself, accomplished, loved, happy, blessed, confident, and excited for my future. I keep having a conversation in my head wondering why I am so incredibly happy here. Sometimes I tell myself that it's just a "high and excitement being in a new place" that will eventually wear off. But in all honesty, I believe this is Heavenly Father's way in telling me this is where I am meant to be. Time for an update!
I'm taking a rock climbing class and I absolutely love it. I'm not good by any means, but it is such a blast every week and it's great trying something new and exciting.

Thursdays have become my favorite day.

My roommate's birthday was a hit. She was out with her fam all day but Danica and I made a 19 out of cupcakes for her to come home to. Then we hit up Menchies and came home, played dress up and danced our little hearts out.
One weekend I went with a group down to Cedar for a dance. Then afterwards we met Chanel's bro and he gave us free Krave!

We went with a group to a bonfire/ night hike adventure. It was great fun!

Now for the big ONE NINE. I celebrated with the parents and alisa in Vegas the weekend before my actual birthday!

 On the drive home, Lexi and I saw a bijillion rainbows it was insane!
On my actualy bday, I woke up to all of our apartment mirrors attacked by my roommates. Seriously love them.
Then I went to Denny's with the roomies for my free birthday breakfast. Had classes, napped, worked. Then I went to the vow with ash, lex, and julia! LOVED it. Then we got Menchies and stayed up chatting way too late. great, great birthday!

Once again, I love it here and as far as I'm concerned, I am here for good. Taking life a day at a time!
