Moments




Lisa posed a challenge to all who read her blog and I would love to respond to the moments in my life. I think I have few that might be worth sharing with you all.

The first one I can think of is when I first remember really knowing that I had a testimony of the gosple. I had been through some pretty horrible times at then end of high school . When I was about seventeen, I was sruggling with knowing my worth as a person. I had a boyfriend who was very abusive towards me, and made me feel very small. I had been through some rough times within my family as well, and then I ran away to school and was having a hard time being on my own. I went in to see the bishop only because I had a sweet roomate who thought it would help and forced me to go. After several sessions with him he challenged me to read the book of Mormon and to try to get to the temple as much as I could. He set up baptisms and sent some one to ride with me on a pretty regular basis It took me about two months and some real soul searching but when I finished the Book I got a blessing and the bishop and I fasted together. I won't go into much more detail but I know that I am a daughter of God and that I have a heavenly Father who loves me. And I have always known that. I did not need to look far to know that this was true. I can remember that precious moment And I always will.

Then not many years later I was made a mother and the overhwelming responsiblility of that hit me hard as a rock coming straight from heaven and landing flat on my head. Moment again. I wondered how I would get this child through life, how could the Lord intrust me with such a special little spirit. But he did and I would do just that. I could guide his child through this life as long as I stayed right there with my husband on one side and the Lord on the other.

I think those moments have cemented my soul in a firm foundation of faith one that I know I will never stray from even if I struggle day to day. I know where I came from and where I am heading. And I am more greatfull for that the any other thing on this planet beacuse, by no other way can we be happy and find true joy than by the knowlendge that we are children of a heavenly father who loves us. It makes every descision not just worth making but worth making right.

Thank you Lisa what a great challenge.

Those are probably the moments that define you best. Knowing who you are will make you successful in your journey with number 2.

I agree with both comments. I look at you and how different you 'seem' to be than others in your family. You 'are' strong. You 'are' independant. You 'do' know yourself well enough to make tough decisions. I'm glad that we have reconnected. I know your dad would be pleased with the woman you are now.
