Serving a Mission!

So I know that a while ago I posted a post about my friends going on a mission and me not going. Well I haven't been able to stop thinking about going and I felt so uneasy about staying here and not serving a mission. So I started praying about the decision to serve a mission and I have never felt so much peace, happiness, and surety in my life. I know that going on a mission is the right decision for me. So I am acting on the feeling and i am going to serve a mission. I started my papers at the first of this week. I put my availability date as June 1st, so we will be seeing where I will be going and when! (hopefully soon) I am so so so excited to serve a mission! It is going to be the best experience! :)

Running!


I have developed a passion for running! I LOVE it! It relieves my stress, helps with anxiety, and keeps me healthy! I was reading a fitness magazine the other day and on one of the pages it told a story about a lady who ran 1,000 miles in one year. I have decided that I am going to do just that.

I am going to run 1,000 miles in one year.

In fact I started this morning and knocked 6 miles off. So now I only have 994 more to go. It averages out to be about 2.8 miles a day which isn't bad at all!



Mission?

So it seems like all of my friends are going on missions! And by all I mean three, I am a little bit of an over-exaggerator. It has made me a little jealous and put the thought into my head, once again, that maybe I do want to/am suppose to go on a mission. But I already prayed about it and my answer was no, and that I need to stay here and finish school. However I am so happy for...

Katelynn Sumko-Taichung, Taiwan
Lindsey Grimes-Seattle, Washington
Natalie Belka-Omaha, Nebraska

I am going to miss these girls like crazy! They are all going to be amazing missionaries and are all going exactly where the lord needs them!

A Mission Statement of President Eyring:

I am a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The dye has been cast out. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slowdown, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly taking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on his presence, walk with patience, am lifted by prayer, and labor with power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder in the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up the cause of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach to all I know, and work till he stops me. And when he returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear.


I Love this mission statement! It is so powerful! I strive to be like this everyday! The gospel is so important to me and I want EVERYONE to know that!

L-TOWN

Life in Logan is great! Even though I grew up with weather like this I am still adjusting from St. George weather. Man is St George spoiled. Yesterday it was a beautiful day, well the first half. Like no coat or jacket beautiful, but then around like five it turned into a blizzard! And I mean BLIZZARD! However Logan is beautiful! I am really starting to love the valley, especially right after it snows.


School is going great! I am LOVING my classes. I am so glad I decided to change majors, I mean nursing is great, but I just love everything about community health. It fits me so much better than nursing did. Plus I will have a lot more options of what I can do when I finish!

I love going to sporting events up here at USU! The basketball games are a blast! USU has an amazing student section, its like half of the stadium, and always jam packed! I also went to my first hockey game up here. I have never really been a fan of hockey, but man it was so fun! Of course my favorite part was the fighting! I love it when they rip off there gloves and helmets and start throwing fists.


Outdoor Ice Skating!

At my first hockey game! LOVED it!

Also my birthday was on the 6th of this month! I had a wonderful birthday! Lots of celebrating! I am 21 years old I cannot believe it! I feel like I am getting so old! On Thursday my roommates made me a Birthday Cake, white, with white frosting, my favorite! They are so sweet! Then on Saturday my mom took me to Bella's for lunch followed by a little shopping. I got new running shoes, the cutest little purse ever and two rings! :) Then later that night I had a little get together with some friends. We went to Fire House Pizza to eat and then came back to my apartment and played games and such! On Sunday, my actual birthday, I had dinner with my family! Tomas and Jayci as well as Cody and Jess came out to my parents house and we celebrated as well as watched the Super Bowl! Kenz and Aron were on the mountain so they weren't able to make it, they were greatly missed though! Then on Tuesday Jess and I combined out birthdays. She came up to Logan and we did a little shopping and then went to Chili's for lunch! It was a great birthday and I am so grateful that I have so many friends and family to celebrate with!


My lovely roomies!
Amy, Mary, and Cass
