Got a Call for a Miniseries!

First of all I want to note how bugged I am at myself!!!!! Tonight Bryan checked my phone and noticed I has missed a call and had a voice mail. I didn't revognize the phone number but noticed it was 3:15pm when they called. I listened to the voice message and I couldn't believe what had happened!! It was Good Faith Casting- that was the casting director for the TV Miniseries that I auditioned for like over a month ago.......calling me for a part! It wasn't any of the parts I auditioned for, but for a really good extra role and I WOULD be on set Monday and Tuesday! Notice would be on set....I didn't even notice I had the voice message until 9pm!! I called, but I am sure they found another available actress to take the part. I can't believe I missed it!!! But on the upside- I had one of the acting teachers I was taking classes from make me feel like I shouldn't have auditioned for the miniseries, incinuating that I was not ready. So it makes me feel good to know that the casting director must have liked me enough to call me for a different part. It wasn't a speaking part probably...but she thought of me. So therefore I know I must have something she liked and remembered and that is really encouraging. There will be another opportunity I am sure and the more I get involved in the acting community here, the more I will find those opportunities available to me! SO I am BUMMED I missed out...But PUMPED they even called me back and wanted me! Until next time! Which there will be a next time!!!!!

Hi Jamie,

My cousin Marshall sat next to your mother-in-law on the plane a few months ago and passed your amazing story and your blog onto me. I have just spent the last hour reading it and watching your video and am so touched! I especially loved your testimony and am grateful you shared it on your blog, it is very powerful.

I think you may have gone to BYU-I? My cousin thought you did...anyway, I was there for a few summers too. My mom was born and raised in Rexburg so I've spent lots of time there and I love Idaho : )

It's great to meet you! I hope we get to know each other better!

Blessings, Sharlie

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
