Re: My Deepest Struggle

After posting my last post I felt so free and light. I was absolutely terrified while filming that video and I almost didn’t post it. Now I’m so glad that I did. It was something that I knew I needed to do.

We all have a deep struggle. Nobody is perfect and sometimes I forget that. Making that video helped me put my guard down. I was able to connect with you guys on a deeper level. I struggle with letting people see the real me.

Before I end this post I want to show you guys these song lyrics. I had listened to this song before the video but now it means so much more.

You Say by Lauren Daigle

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity, (ooh oh)You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh, I believe Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet
You have every failure God, and You’ll have every victory, (ooh oh)You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe Oh I believe (I), yes I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh I believe (oh)

How do you let your guard down?

Life Goals

Life Goals

Hey everyone! I have been thinking a lot lately about the goals for my life. I am in my sophomore year and before I know it I will be out in the world going to college and starting life as an adult.

1. Get married

I have always planned to get married and have a family. When I was younger I wanted to have 12 kids but now that I babysit and am around lots of kids I am having second thoughts. Four or five kids sounds more reasonable.

2. Be a ranch owner on the big island in Hawaii

My family and I visited the Big Island of Hawaii several years ago looking at a job on a wellness farm. Ever since that trip I have been day dreaming of owning a dude ranch there (away from the volcano of course).

3. I want to be a successful blogger

Just recently I have a newfound passion for blogging! It comes pretty easily and I love sharing little bits of my life. I feel that I have come a long way since I started and I know that there is more to improve.

4. Have my own business

Ever since I was little I was selling things. When I was six or seven I started a paper airplane business. That didn’t work out so well. Being an entrepreneur has always drawn me in. I don’t know what kind of business I would start/run but the idea excites me.

What are your plans for the future? What would you like to see me post about in the future?

Some Sad News.

Some Sad News.

Hello everyone, I bet you guys can tell by the title of this post that it is not a super peppy post.

I have taken an unplanned hiatus from posting because I have been trying to figure out what I am going to do about my YouTube channel. First my camera was making a weird sound so I switched to a different one. Then I wasn’t able to publish the videos that I was making. This has led me to the decision to discontinue my YouTube Channel.

I hope that you all understand and that I need to make the best decision for me. Sometimes your plan isn’t God’s plan so I am doing what I think is right. I will still be posting on my blog because I feel like this is the right tack and I just wandered off of it a little bit.

Love you all!

I Am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

I Am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

Hey everyone! Today I want to talk about my religion and clear up some misunderstandings about my church. I said that I would talk about this in my last post Excited For General Conference!

The first question people ask about us is: Are we Christian? Yes we are. We believe that Jesus is the Christ and that He is the Messiah. People get confused because we call ourselves LDS or Mormons. These two titles say nothing about Christ. We have been asked by our prophet to call ourselves by our full name which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to make sure that Christ stays the focus of our lives.

You are also probably wondering what the letters on the ring in the picture stand for. They stand for Choose the Right. A lot of us wear these rings to help us remember to choose Christ. Sometimes that means choosing Christ’s way in the first place, sometimes that means choosing to be redeemed by Christ.

People also wonder about the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is something we read along with the Bible. The Book of Mormon is a record of Hebrews who left their land around 600 B.C. and came to the Americas. We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God” (Article of Faith #8).

The last thing I want to clear up is that some people think that we are super judgmental because of our high standards and values. Most of us try not to be judgmental but sometimes it might come across that we are judging people. We are taught to see people as God sees them. God sees people as his spirit sons and daughters. Please understand that we are imperfect human beings. We are all fallen people living in a fallen world. Church is a hospital where we seek support and community it is also one of the places we can worship God.

I love my religion. I am so grateful to be a part of it. I hope you benefited from this post. Let me know in the comments if you have any more questions. Please keep it respectful.

Raw Photo Challenge!

Raw Photo Challenge!

Hey everyone! Today I did a raw photo challenge! I used my backyard to take all these cool photos. In this challenge I tried to make my photos as cool as possible without editing them at all. I am really happy with how these pictures turned out!

In this first picture I wanted to capture the perspective of me looking down from our tree. The branch that I am sitting on is my favorite spot in the tree.

This is a picture of the bouquet of leaves that my siblings helped me make. I feel like this is perfect for the change of the seasons as it shows green and yellow leaves.

When we bought our house it came with two homemade rope swings attached to the tree. In this picture I am spinning on one of the rope swings.

In this picture you can see my little sister playing in the background. She is super cute!

Behind me is my one of my dogs. We have had her for seven years.

This one is probably my favorite picture out of all of these. It took me forever to get it just right. I love how I am blurry in the background.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment below on which one of these pictures is your favorite and tell me why.
