There is no end to His blessings!

I got in! I got accepted! That's right, BYU-Idaho here we come! It's not just the fact that I will pretty much be the first person in my family to ever go to college and hopefully finish through, or the fact that I have been praying that everything would go well, despite all the odds. Oh no, it is the fact that I know that if it weren't for divine intervention, it never would have happened. I just barely got my application finished and miraculously had the money to pay the application fee two days before the final deadline, and I know it was nothing short of a miracle! Thank you, Father. Thank you! Oh, words can not express the joy I feel!

Ok, point made :)

A True Witness Delivereth Souls!

Oh. My. Gosh.
Do I know this Church is true!

What brought on this sudden knowledge? Haven't I allready recieved this light and truth before? Yes. But when Elder Busath prayed in that still, small voice for me and my family as we sat in the missionaries' car, I felt the Spirit so much that I could not help but smile ( I almost laughed!). I could barely contain myself...it felt like something within me would burst.

How grateful I am to know that those men are ordained of God to proclaim glad tidings to all the world, even the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in all its restored splendor, and to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of the Lord led by a prophet of God. No man, no amount of anti-literature, and no trials could ever take that knowledge away from me. God Lives! He love us. I know it.

(Oh, Elder Kelsey, if you could only see me now.)

Thank you Joseph. And I thank Thee, Father in Heaven.

Mormon Messages

A new page run by the Church on YouTube(that's right, Youtube!)
called Mormon Messages is a great place to go "If you are looking for a simple way to watch and share brief, gospel-centered videos," as it says on LDS.org.
Check it out!


Here is a taste of what is there!

Alicia, this one is for you!

I am sure you will love this video...not only does it have wonderful scenes. but beautiful music taken from the cd "stories of Jesus" by Melanie & roger hoffman (you can find it on Itunes! Great buy)
