A new year approaches

2012 is quickly upon us and I am looking forward to what it brings. First of all Bryan has some change ahead. January 2nd will be his first day at a new motorcycle shop. We have been praying for some change and we feel this is the blessing we have been praying for :) Congratulations Bryan!!

Well a new year means "new year resolutions" and I have been thinking about the lately. I have a few that I seem to always set because my good intentions sometimes don't turn into the results I wanted. A few that I have on my mind are:

"Preliminary List"

*Run another 5K (beat my 2011 time)
*Get Six Pack Abs
*Work towards competing at 2012 transplant games
*Complete a sprint tri?
*Lean up (combat prednisone mini muffin top)
*Learn how to airbrush
*Take a dance class
*Progress my acting career. . .
*AND from last year: Send more cards/letters to friends and family :)
*Oh and Pay off Credit Card Debt!

Another goal, that I really have NO control over but it would be awesome, is to have another "rejection free" year! Which leads me to my BIG GOAL. . .to live to celebrate my 5 year transplant anniversary December 2012! :)

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
