heavenly things

just being in love

i have been learning about the big picture.
the reason why we are here on earth.
how we got here. the history of the world.
its creation. our creation. the reason WHY we need a savior.
the purpose of this short mortal life on planet Earth.
and what happens after we take our last breath here.
whats going to happen in eternity.
what can that possibly mean.

i have enjoyed having my mind and eyes opened.

"If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?" st john 3:12

when we begin to understand our personal story, life, connection to this plan, then we begin to have greater meaning to our pursuit of life.

there are wonderful things in store. this is our time to grow.
our time to shape ourselves and truly seek opportunity to become better.
we are commanded to make those changes, repent, and turn our imperfections around.

this i am trying.
there is so much happiness in making this change.

i would love to answer anyones questions or thoughts/comments about this topic. please email me at or comment here.

begin where you are.


thou shalt lay aside the things of this world, and seek for the things of a better.

it seems i have disappeared. i've been busy with my work.
and it has been good.

i miss my family and sunshine.
i miss fresh air and a clean car.
i miss the rare moments in my life when i had money in my savings.
i miss my grammie.

i feel strangely that life is at its proper pace. things are where they should be.
and i must do my best to continue to always improve.
i made new goals today. one of which is to send more love to the special people in my life.
i am such a lucky girl. and sometimes i forget that.

i am recommitting to being a better me this week.

oh. forget me not

do you ever know something
but you dont do it and take action
cause its not what you reeeaallly want?

like my perspective
like getting on my knees in the cold for my prayers
like running 8 miles
like stopping destructive thoughts
like not eating gooey brownies

this is also termed: self mastery.
it is important to understand, learn, and DO.

have you ever felt that God forgot about you?
yesterday i knew i was allowing bad thoughts.
i sat through church. i enjoyed it. but i heard a child make noise.
and it brought tears to my eyes. the past couple weeks seeing kids, pregnant bellies, the baby section in stores. they all make me hurt. like upset hurt. like i can't even enjoy it anymore.
its becoming negative and brings me pain.
and i know its selfish of me. i've been blessed so very much. and in other ways.
and I KNOW God has a plan for me.
but still.

i know all these things. but still. i have righteous desires. he commands us to have families.
and im doing all i can think of. did he forget about me?
so im trying to remember the wise words of my last post.

to be happy now. to remind myself of the positives of being me NOW.
of the passion i have.
of the talents i have.
of the freedom and lovely sleep i enjoy.
of the small body i live in.
of the great people in my life.
and i will praise him.

to become


First, forget not to be patient with yourself.
Second, forget not the difference between a good sacrifice and a foolish sacrifice.
Third, forget not to be happy now.
Fourth, forget not the "why" of the gospel.
Fifth, forget not that the Lord loves you.

So amazing. perfect and exactly what i needed to hear.
week one down at the gym and i think i pulled a muscle. also. i did double days and i spent most of my week in pain.
life is so good.

heading down to zion again this weekend for a photo shoot.
do you love what you do as much i do?
dear heavens, i am blessed.

also. did you hear its girl scout cookie season? love you. have a happy monday.

plugged in

one time.
my brother had strep throat.

that same time.
his throat swelled up to the point where he stopped breathing.
for a long time.

that same time, 8 years ago, he suffered massive brain damage and has never been the same.

dad, wyatt, & chad

my family is participating in a walk to raise money for the Brain Injury Association of California.

if you happen to have the means and heart to contribute to my sister who is raising funds to be in the walk, please click here. thank you to all the family and sweet friends that have supported me, my family, and Chad over the years. My gratitude could never be properly expressed with words.
