Come Unto Christ

2 more months, that's it! The time is absolutely flying by and it's scaring me. But, this morning I felt especially nervous. I've been getting ready and it just felt like today I had more temptations than usual. Reasons why I shouldn't go on a mission, and they were scaring me. I've wanted to serve since I was little and now that the time is almost here it's mind boggling. Like I said, today has just been a very rough day. I was on Facebook and one of my friend's posted this video. I watched it, and I felt so comforted and I knew that this is what I am supposed to do. Watch it, it's amazing!

It really is that simple, Come Unto Christ. Our Heavenly Father is always there for us, he knows us better than we know ourselves. And it is such a comfort to me knowing that I can turn to him for anything and everything and he will still love me. I can't wait to share this love with others.

Missionary Shopping

First of all, I'm not the hugest fan of shopping. If I know what I need to get I'm fine with just going in there and getting it and going out. Yes, every once in a while it's nice to try on some cute clothes or whatnot. But other than that, I try to stay away from shopping. Well, today I started the exciting journey of shopping for missionary clothes! And anyone who knows me, knows I have some of the WORST style ever! I'm completely happy in sweats and a hoodie. In fact, I'm dressed like that 90% of the time. (I may or may not be dressed like that right now) So shopping for "cute" and "fashionable" clothes was a struggle. Without my mom there, I don't think I would have been able to make it through. But we have officially started.

Since I'm the first Sister missionary in my family, my mom isn't used to this. My family has sent out 3 Elder's and she told me how much easier they are than girls. Get them a few white shirts, a suit, and some slacks and they're just about ready to go! Sister's are completely different! The skirt, the shirt, the shoes... Ahh! Not quite what I'm into. But we were able to get a few outfits today and I made it out alive. And it was actually a lot more simple than I thought. But sadly, we're not done yet... More shopping and missionary adventures to come! Yay!!
78 more days!
