a testimony

This past weekend was fully and completely amazing for me. I know what I am doing with my life now! I understand my Heavenly Father's love for me. I know that He gives strength to ALL who seek it. No matter who you are. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, is our brother. "The best big brother ever," as a dear friend Aubrey once said. He really is the best! He gave His life so we could gain eternal salvation. We do have prophets today. The scriptures, oh my goodness. AMAZING! I love to study my scriptures. They are calming and eye opening. The Book of Mormon is true. The Bible and Book of Mormon are companions in their testament of Christ our Savior. I LOVE THIS CHURCH! I have so much to learn. So so much. But even as a beautiful, strong, unwavering tree grows from a tiny seed, so can my testimony.

live a happy life!

Today I had the lovely opportunity to go to General Conference. Conference is where all of the leaders of our Church gather in Utah and speak to the members of the Church. It is broadcasted on television as well as in certain church buildings. There are several sessions of Conference. 2 for all of the members of the church on Saturday as well as 2 on Sunday. On Saturday evening, there is also a session for men ages 12 and up. I decided to attend conference at church this year. I have a lot of questions for my Heavenly Father I was hoping to find answers to, and I wanted a place where I would not be as distracted. It was a wonderful choice. I really felt calm and had my heart open to the words of our prophets and leaders. I needed it.
So what does this have to do my new {{and hopefully long-lasting}} blog name? Well, it really stood out to me how much our Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us. One of my favorite talks given several years ago discusses how we are each princesses in our own story {{this was given to the young women, ages 12-18, leaders and parents}}. YOU can read it/listen to it here! It's fabulous!
Anyway! You are a princess {{or prince}} and I am a princess! And this is my once upon a time, full of "adventure, trial, and opportunities for greatness, nobility, courage, and love."
So here is to my adventures of the past, and the changes to come<3
