Three weeks before Rachel and Whit went into the MTC they both told me they were trying to read the whole Book of Mormon before they left. So I though hey I should do that too! Now seeing as it usually takes me a school year to get through it, I was incredibly and extremely proud of myself when I actually did it. I read this book in three weeks. It taught me I can do hard things, and it enabled me to be so thankful for the good friends I have. I finished the book last night, the day that my girls went into the MTC. And I know this church is true. This church makes my whole life make sense, and I am so glad I get to be a part of it.
^^^Read this book! It WILL change your life!^^^
^^^This view NEVER gets old. I could look out at it forever.^^^
Also I love my church, and I love Utah because I get to go to the temple once a week! Going once a week has honestly been the greatest blessing in my life. Going here helps me discover who I am. And I am pretty ok with this person that I am becoming. It is funny how I look back a year ago at high school graduation and then I can see how different I am and how much I changed in a year. I am still the same person, but I am so incredibly different. And I like this different. It's good. Utah is my home now, it's the place where I made my best friends. It's the place where I am learning the most. And it's the place where I am figuring out who I really am. I love this place.
