New Blog

So I was having a hard time posting on my blog and decided that I wanted to change things up a bit. I started a new blog at

You can change the link you have for me to this new blog. I'm not sure how much I'll be using the old one.

Happy Birthday Tommy! I love you!

This post is dedicated to my oldest brother, Tommy. Today is his birthday and he has been in my thoughts all week. I wish he could celebrate his birthday at home with his family, rather than where he is, but I know that he is where he needs to be.

Its been a long, tough road
these past few years,
There are have been many broken hearts
and a whole lot of tears.
I've asked questions like,
"Why does he have to be like this?"
Or "Will he ever know what its like
to take care of a wife and kids?"
Sometimes I feel hopeless
and helpless and selfish.
I think that things will never change
and I'll just have to get used to this.
But when I get on my knees and pray,
I see his face and know there is hope.
He is a child of God, he is my brother,
I see things from a more heavenly scope.
Christ commanded us to
"Love one another, as I have loved you."
I might not cure Tommy's pain,
but there is something I can do.
I can love him unconditionally,
because I know that's what Christ would choose.
He would take Tommy in His arms
and there would be no judgment in His eyes.
He'd give him comfort and peace
and He'd cry while Tommy cries.
Then He'd say, "My brother.
Please come back to My fold.
Drink freely of my living water,
its worth more than silver and gold.
I came to this earth to prepare a way
for you to come back Home.
I'm gathering my lost sheep
and you no longer need to roam.
I suffered greatly in Gethsemane
and gave my life upon the cross.
I did it because it was the only way
to save the souls of those who have been lost.
I have felt your pain and it hurt so much
Please do not let it destroy you
Give Me your pains and burdens
I will take away your suffering too.
Come back to My fold, dear brother,
I am standing outside your door.
I will not go away, I will always stay,
and when you're ready I'll give You wings to soar."
My hope is in Jesus. I know He is there.
There is no need to worry or fear.
When Tommy is ready, whether in this life or next,
Christ will be ready and near.
I will love him and pray for him
it the best I can do.
And the Savior will take care of the rest.
He'll bless Tommy and me and you.

California Here We Come!

My little brother, Robbie, and I decided to take off to California for a week and it was a great trip! We drove down there, and the first night we drove to Vegas. The weather was horrible and I managed to slide off the road twice! But we made it safe and sound. In Vegas we visited the Temple and then spent a couple of hours on the Strip. Then we were off to California! We got up early one morning and went to the Price Is Right! We didn't get up on stage, but we did get to view a taping of the show, and Drew Carey totally had a conversation with my brother. It was great!! The next day we went to Disneyland and California Adventure and it was awesome!!! The parks were not crowded at all, so we went on tons of rides and I loved it!!! Disneyland is the best!!! Our last day we spent in San Diego at my Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Mike's house, which is on the beach. It was so much fun to spend time with them! I'm so glad we got to go!!!

In The Middle of Nowhere

So in December my friend, Kristin, and I drove down to Manti to go to our friend, Heather's, wedding. It was a beautiful day and the drive was going great. Then, suddenly, all of the cars in front of us started slowing down, and I thought, "Oh no, there's probably an accident or something up ahead and we're already running late. Ahhhh!" As we got closer to the stopped traffic though, I realized that we were no longer in the city, but far out in the country. There were HUNDREDS of sheep in the road!!!! They totally surrounded our car! Luckily, we had a camera and although the pictures didn't turn out too great, it is proof that no matter how far out in the middle of nowhere you might be, there will always be sheep!
