Memories

Okay I've seen this on a few friend's blogs and it's so fun, so ...

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

I can't wait to see what you remember, I'm a bit nervous actually...

Where did I come from...where am I going

After reading this month's Ensign magazine I decided I wanted to share with all of my friends and family my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is my Savior, he died and paid for my sins and was resurrected. He lives today. All anyone has to do is repent and come unto him. This knowledge brings me joy in that I don't have to let past mistakes dictate my future. I have a hope for the future and I KNOW that I will be with my family forever. This knowledge comforts me when I think of the sadness and pain of this world. One day it will be easier. I know that there are Apostles upon the earth today, just as there was in Jesus' time. They are led by Him just as they were then. They give us revelation from God, it's amazing that we still have revelation coming from God. Why wouldn't we? The scriptures say he is the same yesterday today and forever, he would not forget about us here today and he hasn't. The words that these men speak are comforting to me, and when they speak something inside me is calmed and I know in my heart their words are true.
Along with the restoration of the Gospel truths came a book called the Book of Mormon, this book testifies of Jesus Christ, it is another witness of Him. "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost."
I have done this, I have read and asked God and he has answered my prayers in miraculous ways, ways which still bring tears to my eyes even as I write, that these things are true.

I share these things because I want everyone to have the happiness and joy that I have. I want them to have the inner peace that I have. Christ is the bread of life, the living water, through Him you will hunger and thirst no more. "God is mindful of every people" "He has all power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things and he is a merciful being". I testify of these things and know them to be true with all of my heart, and no matter what comes, I cannot deny what I know, that Christ lives and that his gospel is once again on the earth.

Walgreen's Update

So I thought I'd let everyone know what happened with the Walgreen's guy, well turns out his wife is now my visiting teacher! But I confessed to her what happened and she said he hadn't mentioned it, phew! Oh and he happens to be management so he frequents all of the Walgreen's within a 30 minute drive of me. Great. I guess there's no avoiding him, unless I stop shopping Walgreen's altogether. They seem to be great people though.

Fourth of July

Well we've had a great holiday weekend, I talked Chris into taking Thursday off and we spent the day swimming at Rigby lake and then watched the fireworks they do every 3rd of July. Yesterday we went to the Idaho Falls parade, which Claire loved, we BBQ'd at the Snedaker's and went back to our house to watch the Fireworks and do our own little show. We had a great time, and Jacob did very well for such a busy weekend. Claire on the other hand, is still suffering from sleep loss, hopefully she'll recover after today's nap :)
