Anchored in Christ. Camp 2014

I can't believe my last post was about Girls Camp. Fast forward to this year I am now the Stake Camp Director (say What?!?!?!) It was so much work but it was oh so fun and worth it to see the girls testimonies and my own grow.

Girls Camp............................ 12 years later.

I had the opportunity to go to camp as the 3rd year leader in Cloudcroft this year, and let me tell you it was SO MUCH FUN... I am convinced that leaders get far more out of it then any of the girls or maybe it was just because it was a complete answer to my prayers to go and be able to get away from my job and figure out whats next in mycareer or maybe it was that I met and got to know some ladies whom I now consider to be some of my best friends. While at camp we learned a song called "I am his Daughter" by Nicole Sheahan and I instantly fell in love with the song and cry everytime I hear it now such powerful words and I hope that the girls know and can feel how true those words are. In the end it turned out to be a great week and one that I find myself thinking about often! ;">

So over the last couple weeks/months it seems like everyone around me is getting married and or engaged... And last night for some reason was the straw that broke the camels back... It gets really disappointing to hear and see all these people around you get what you have been working so hard to achieve. The truth is I was to be married I want to find that one guy who makes me better then I am by myself... I feel like I have been doing the best that I can, I have an education, I have a full time job... I am in school to get more education, I have callings at church, I have friends and am trying to be the best me that I know how... And yes I know its all in the time of the Lord and I have to trust in his timing but it sure is hard to sit back and watch everyone around you get what you want... So last night I cried... and just like always I will put a smile on my face and be happy for them but deep down inside its hard... really hard.

Day 13

Today I am thankful for Christmas and the magic that comes with the season...

Day 12

Today I am thankful for guns... Not only do they provide protection but they can also be a source of entertainment when you go shooting in the middle of no where... Especially to let off steam from frustrations of my Day 11 Thankful post! :)

Day 11-- and one of my most favorite!

Today I am thankful for the delete button and being able to rid myself of people who don't belong in my life!!!! :-)

Day 10

Today I am Thankful that my alarm clock did not have to go off this morning.

Day 9

Today I am Thankful for kids like this who really know how to better people around them! The story of an LDS high school quarterback who came to the aid of a sophomore girl with special needs has received attention from CNN, ESPN and other national news outlets. We are inspired by his example! http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865566351/Kindness-of-Arizona-high-school-QB-Carson-Jones-and-teammates-has-gone-viral.html

Day 8

Today I am Thankful for Wanda, my car... She gets me where I need to go and gets 27 miles to the gallon in town!! :) The only thing she is missing is cruise control.

Day 7

Today I am Thankful that one of my bestest friends Mindi Macdonald-Wendel was born!!! She and I have had a few crazy times together but no matter what direction life takes us or how ever long it goes before we see one another we can pick up right where we left on... Love her oh so very much! :)

Day 6

Today I am Thankful that the Presidential election will be over... Although I am proud to be an American and grateful that I have the chance to voice my opnion and vote, I am so happy that I won't have to hear the candidates tear each other apart.

Day 5

Today I am thankful for good friends... New and old and the happiness they bring into my life!

Today I am thankful for the gospel because it makes me who I am, it makes me be a better person, and makes me the person I want to become... I believe in Christ, He stands supreme.....

Thankful Day #3...

Today I am thankful for football... It is my life and has been since I was little because of my dad and now my mom and I find ourselves planning our lives around that schedule for STHS...
