Just some thoughts!

I have been thinking a lot about my life and what others did for me and I am struggling with knowing what to do. My heart has always been in acting and performing. I want to be in Movies so badly...but I have experienced things in the last year that make my heart doubt that choice. I knew that career would be hard for someone with morals and high standards. It's heartbreaking in so many ways. It is so sad that the world had become so "sick" that violence, nudity, and strong language is what's considered "entertainment"- If you aren't willing to participate in those type of things, then you are expected to change...bend your standards just a little. I want to do something great with the life I have been given. I want to make a big difference some how- I always wanted to entertain and make people laugh, but I don't want to betray my beliefs to do it. I believe in myself and I know that whatever I choose to do in this life, I have the ability to be successful at it.....I just have to decide if I can put on enough armor to walk amongst the lion's and not get eaten alive!

Darlin' its that same thing I ran into when I started playing with others in the wonderful world of theatre. Don;t lose hope just remember that you are a wonderful strong person that battle over an unimaginable trial and came out alive. Most directors or fellow theatre folk would pee there pants if dealt that card! Just stay steady and true to what you want to create and you will become all that you want with no regrets. Some things are just not in the time frame we have in mind. Hens, Why I am just now having a baby after 4 years between getting pregnant the last time. Didn't know summer of 2007 would happen...lol! Love you, I am always your biggest fan ladie!

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
