HOME

HOME SWEET HOME!   Well it's not much of a secret since news travels fast in a small town (and on facebook). Bryan and I had the opportunity to move back home to Idaho and we took it. The shop in Oklahoma had to close and that left Bryan having to 'start over' in a sense which then brought him to whether he wanted to start over in Oklahoma or back home and it wasn't an easy choice for him. He felt like we lived been away from our family and my horses pretty much since my transplant and he wanted me to be home and enjoy all those things. I am 3 months away from my 5 year transplantiversary which seems so crazy~ He took my feelings in consideration when he decided to move home. . .however, it was HARD leaving behind the life, friends, house, and the mild winters that made Oklahoma feel like home.

I would like to mention a few of the people who will always be in my heart and made a BIG impact in my life in the short 2 years we were in Oklahoma:
Gerald & Binx Mills (Mills Body Shop)
Chris Freihofer (The Actor Factory)
Shelby Staples Roe (My bestest friend in Oklahoma)
Lisa & Bill Sims (The Best friends and Neighbors EVER!)
John Lizeo (Bryan's Business Partner & an awesome friend)
Snuffy (Steve) Bryan's friend who makes a wicked awesome pizza ;)

I know there is many, many more people who we will miss and who made Oklahoma a special stop in our journey of life. I am looking forward to spending time with family here in Idaho, riding my horse, and doing whatever fun and exciting thing is waiting for me in my future!

Goodbye Oklahoma you definately made me realize how great it is to be away from home, out of my comfort zone and yet feel right at home! LOVE YA!

HELLO Idaho. . .where everybody knows my name. .hahahaha!

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
