My girl has been 18 for a while but now it feels official as she graduated from high school tonight. I think being the mom to an adult is going to bring new mothering challenges, but mostly, I think it’s going to be pretty great.
You guys!!! Our Heavenly Father loves us!!! This Sunday in YW our lesson was about prayer & it just so happened that this week’s scripture to ponder over is... about prayer! It is a BLESSING for sure to communicate with our Father in Heaven! To think about and express our gratitude to him, to pour out our hearts during sadness or trial, and to seek guidance and direction. How great it is to know that He is always there, that He listens, cares and lovingly answers. Today, I said a very heart felt prayer to my Heavenly Father & that prayer was answered, through a post I just read on Instagram. Yep, instagram, sometimes God works in mysterious ways. 😉 I do know, that our Heavenly Father’s Love for us is real and those answers will come, we just need to recognize them when they do ♥️#ponderize
3 Nephi 18:15,20-21
"2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord" 2 Nephi 21:2
The Spirit of the Lord can be many things: comforter, teacher, therapist, study buddy, witness, friend, guide ...the list goes on. Whatever we need, if we lay our troubles at the feet of the Lord in earnest prayer, He will hear us, and He will send His Spirit to us, to help us.

If the gospel is worth anything, It is worth everything. King Lamoni said “I will give away all my sins to know thee...” (Alma 22:18)
What are you willing to give up to know the Savior and live His gospel wholeheartedly? ~ Dallas shares, “I loveeee my mission!! Elder Nieves and I finished the week with our first 2 baptisms together here in Villa Canales! We had the first one on Saturday for Juan Cux. He's been one of the hardest investigators I've taught because of his addiction to alcohol. My first day here in the area, we had the most amazing lesson with him but he yelled at us and asked us to never bring up baptism again because every set of Elders that show up to their house challenges him to a baptism date. So we left him for a while and then one day about two weeks ago, he came up to us and apologized and told us he had a change of heart and wanted to be baptized!
So he finally had the desire, but couldn't stop his addiction for alcohol which is what pushed the date back. We passed by every single day and called him about 3 to 4 times everyday too to help him with his addiction. It helped a little, but what helped him finally stop his addiction was watching the 12 steps for addiction videos from the church!! There's 12 videos that are about 5 minutes long each that are amazing! He felt the Spirit so strong while watching each video and was able to stop drinking and be baptized!
Our second baptism was yesterday for a little boy named Diego Sance. His parents are both Catholics and we're still working with them for baptism, but he had such a strong desire to get baptized. His parents supported him so he was baptized yesterday. We're hoping his example will affect his family and that they can receive their answer and feel the Spirit that they will want to be baptized too in the next month. I Love You All!!!“ ~Elder Campbell 5.22.18

While attending the temple today, a Temple worker gave me a hug before I left her room in initiatory. I don’t quite know what possessed her to do it but it was just a little tender mercy to remind me that God loves me and knows me. I’m so grateful the great God of the universe sees little old me. #sharegoodness
Psalm 27:4 “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.” #starvalleywyoming #sharegoodness #knowyourgoal
"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
Love this NEW ARRIVAL the Amy stripe & floral midi for girls. Comes in size 8-14 & is only $24! Sizes go quick don’t wait to long!
Day 5. Turn the volume waaaay down. I have a heavy sound right now but not that heavy lol.
John's going to hate me hehe but out of about 20 minutes of takes, the first one is the one I'm posting cuz unfortunately that's the best I got. This isn't how I want to play this...the next shortened clip is a little closer, but no matter how many more takes things just got worse. Vibrato has been my crutch since starting to play again; it is both uncomfortable right now and somewhat automatic... whether I want to or not, whether it's appropriate or not. Control the vibrato, don't let it control you! lol. Maybe I'll post again when I actually achieve what I want to be doing...waiting for the day where that comes more naturally!
btw does St. Matthews Passion make for good background music to the NBA playoffs?

Sometimes it takes ignoring a random thought in your head and then having your car broken into and camera stuff stolen before your big photography field trip to realize that would be what the Holy Ghost sounds like. Major bummer!!! But at the same time very humbling to be reminded on where my priorities should be. Time to refocus and get back to making the Spirit the number one priority in my life and making time for the things that make that possible. Also do not lock your car but forget to role up the window...😬 even in your own driveway in Rigby. #byui #lds #mormon #holyghost #tendermercies #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #thebestbook
A masterpiece, for sure.
Not to get all talky or preachy or sappy or whatever you might think this would be, but...😏 I feel like these Brigsby scribbles are an accurate representation of our life the last few weeks, maybe months. Not much has made sense. We’re happy, but so exhausted and our brains feel all over the place. Nothing is wrong. But nothing feels particularly right. We’ve accomplished things (around the house, etc.), but there are still things that we want to pan out and look “pretty” that seem out of reach. Our life kind of feels like a page of scribbles.
But I truly believe that these scribbles are all part of God’s plan for our lives. I believe that, just like when Matt came in and saw Brigsby’s art and immediately saw sand and trees—he saw the meaning, the masterpiece—, God knows and sees the beautiful result of these scribbles.
Fourteen years! 💍❤️✨ I’ve been wanting to tell you ALL day(holy crazy day🤪)about my cute husband. Cute is a nice word, but let’s be honest...he’s a whole ton more than that! He is kind, patient, consistent, the hardest worker, honest, quietly hilarious, tender, attentive, and always logical(which I don’t always love. Ha!). He balances me in all the right places and is definitely the calm to my madness. I sure need that. .
Fourteen years of loving, growing, learning, experiencing so many things... and he’s still my favorite person ever!
When I asked Brother Koh what made him want to be baptized after many years of learning about the church he said, “I was waiting for a big answer, and that never came. I finally realized that the last few years have been the happiest years of my life, and I can’t take credit for that,” & then he said, pointing to the heavens, “I owe that to something so much more.” 💛
HANDS IN THE AIR IF YOU AGREE 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 God is good, God is real & God wants us happy. As I’ve learned how to be closer to God (especially the last few years) I’ve been happier than I’ve ever been. Almost all of my gratitude goes out to my time in Oregon for that 🌲💛 I’m so proud of this family!
If you have any questions about God or about Jesus Christ or about baptism or about how these things can make you happy, visit the link in my bio or shoot me a message! #sharegoodness #lds #mormon
This is in fact very true 💁🏼♀️ #liamco
Today I made challenges to myself.
Read if you want! Learn something new.
Very important ones.
I challenged myself to learn how to be able to operate and do the work for my ancestors by myself eventually that I may recieve the blessings promised within them.
2. I decided to run faster because I wanted to feel like a winner someday winning 1st place in some event of sort
3. Be better in shape to help myself be more active in self confidence and gratitude for my body God gave to me
I want to be anxiously engaged in a good cause (D&C 58:27) and I will be happier as I do these things. ***Moral
One thing I learned today*** is that I shouldn’t be discouraged from not being better than someone else but that if I’m better than myself I am working to be more like the Saviour, I’m training myself to be a hard worker. .

I feel like I've been a bit of a funk lately, this heat I just wanna don't wear makeup and tan all day... It's giving me no energy! 😂
Anyone else feel me?! Not saying I don't love it because I do! 😍 I just wanna be beaching all day and not worry about anything else
Currently on my letterboard in my laundry room. I've been listening to some podcasts from @3in30podcast
and also following @simplyonpurpose
on Instagram. I feel like I'm gaining some knowledge that will help me be a better parent and bring a more peaceful feeling to my house. .
And I love this song about kindness that we sing as children at church. My kids don't appreciate me singing it to them in a heated moment, but maybe I can just sing it in my head and help myself stay kind.
