Rascal Flatts

Yes you're seeing things right. This is me and Stevo at the Rascal Flatts concert. And the picture on top is Jo Don, Gary Levox and Jay Demarcus themselves. I had probably the best night of my life so far. I woke up and told stevie that I had a dream that we went to the Rascal Flatts concert....and then I realized it wasn't a dream it was REAL. Stevie is pretty cool,I love her. It's lucky that we hit it off so well because we kind of had a hard time getting used to this place. (Our dorm that is). Now we are looking forward to living together again in our 3 bedroom, huge bathroom, 2 refrigeratored apartment located directly north of the Football Stadium. I can watch the games from my back yard! Well at one point I was less than 20 feet away from Rascal Flatts and it was a dream come true!

I love being a college student; especially at BYU. I feel like the education I am gaining is "top notch" and I'm greatful to be here. However, this week has been AWFUL. After 5 Tests, one book and 1 paper I am ready for a break. I think it's incredible that you can study so hard in a class and learn so much, but then completely bomb the test. Too bad your grade depends on the test score not on what you felt like you learned. NDFS 100 has 3 teachers that teach the same class at different times. One teacher writes the test that all three classes take. Sometimes Dr. Brown might not get to the same information that Dr. Christensen was able to, but the students still have to take the same test. I haven't slept longer than 6 hours in one night for about 2 weeks. I guess that's what weekends are for. And, I guess I'm not alone. There are 28,000 other students who would probably make the same complaints. As my Home and Family Living teachers always says, "Life is hard but we can do hard things!"

I AM PECULIAR (this is a permanent post. If you have already read it, scroll down to see my latest)

Those of you who read my blog could probably make a list of all the reasons that you think I am a bit peculiar. No worries, I would be the first to shout an amen to everything you could think of. I know I’m peculiar; but let me tell you the number one thing on my list that I think makes me a peculiar person.

I know where I come from, why I am here and where I am going. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some of you will know me as a “Mormon” although that is just a nickname. The word ‘Saint’ just means ‘member’ in this context. I believe in God the Eternal Father, that I am a daughter of God, and that He loves me and wants me to be happy. I believe in my Savior Jesus Christ who lived a perfect life, atoned for my sins, died and was resurrected all that I might enjoy the blessing of being forgiven of my sins, and having my body and spirit reunited after death. I know that just as God called prophets in the Old and New Testament times that He has in fact called a prophet to lead and guide us today. I believe that families can live together for eternity; death does not have to be the end of our relationships with the ones we love. Some of you may wonder how on earth I can know these things. As I learn more and more from the Bible and other scriptures and actually live what I learn I see the promises the Lord has made being fulfilled in my life, and I feel the Holy Spirit bear witness that these things are true.

I know, I’m peculiar, but thankfully there are over 13 million other peculiar members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and with each year that number grows. I feel so much joy and happiness in my life because of this knowledge.
