My 1st Performance!!

Last Night I had my first Performance in front of an audience in my Improv class. It was a little intimidating, but I did fairly well. Jef (the teacher) told us we should go out and meet and mingle with our audience....I must admit I was nervous about that. But I turned on the charm and began to mingle.. I did very well ~ I visited with some of the men in the audience and got them on my side...cheering for me! When I entered the stage and introduced myself they cheered loudly for me. I didn't have any family or friends there, so it was nice to feel like someone was there to see me!
I participated in many of the Improv Games~ sometimes not fully understanding them, but did my best. We played a game where the other actors started a scene as Aliens in Human form. So I entered as a "not real bright" alien who didn't really blend in and obviously could not speek the English Language. I tried to push myself with Characters and tried not to "just be myself" on stage.
I am learning that there is a game and in each scene we must find the "game" and play on it. That is more difficult than it seems. I understand most of the concepts I am being taught~applying them well takes practice. I have 9 more classes which include 3 more performances....I am hopeful that I will improve immensely and be able to bring what I have learned back to Blackfoot and teach it to the Kids in the CBTA's summer workshop~

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
