I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears, behold I will heal thee.

Love is a many splendid thing. . . love.

I'm not actually going to talk about how wonderful Bryan is and how much I love him. . . .you're all probably sick of that :) I am going to talk about my love for performing and entertaining.

I knew I wanted to be an actress when I was 8 years old. I am still doing what I love. I have never given up on myself or settled for less. I have been true to the freckle faced little girl inside me and I am doing what I wanted to 'grow up to be'.

I never dreamed of things like 'I want to be a mother' or 'I want to be a doctor' and I definitely never wanted the difficult job of being a nurse. So because of that, I have no failure in my life. Despite the things I 'may' be missing out on. . . I am what I have always dreamed of being; with the exeption of the Mansion and Porsche :) Once again I just want to give props to all you who are living your dream. . . that may very well be being a good mother, going back to school later in life, or like Sindy, a doctor. There is a show with Bruce Willis called "The Kid" The "child" version of him comes into his adult life and is disapointed with all the dreams Bruce Willis' character never lived. It really gets me thinking. . . would I be happy with myself. I like to think I would.

Just another glimpse into my head . . . sorry if it's a repeat. I just see life as 'you only get one chance' and if you happen to get a second chance then. . . well, you have something great you haven't finished yet.

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
