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

Checking in...

I've been pretty busy the last month. I finished my hours at school, found a place to rent, and I'm taking 6-10 appointments a week and I'm still working a couple days a week at the auto body shop. It's great...but I don't have a lot of extra time :) My husband is amazing and so supportive. 

Oklahoma is still pretty warm, I like that. I had to put on a light hoodie the other day, but I LOVE hoodies so that wasn't a bad thing. In Idaho it's cooling down & my family had their opening weekend for the haunted attraction "Crazy Train" I made all the posters, tickets, handouts & 2 giant vinyl Banners for them. I helped " long distance" :) 

I've been doing done pretty fun nails...here are my Halloween nails I did on myself. I'm loving experimenting with 3D acrylic and Shellac. All the embellishments are handmade. 
Here is a little more of my work....
I really love what I do. I love when my clients are happy & they get tons of compliments on their nails. I'm so thankful to my Donor & the transplant team who gave me this second chance at life. I've accomplished things and set goals that I never thought could be possible. It's such an amazing feeling. 

I'm only a couple months away from celebrating 7 years post transplant...it's been some of the best years of my life!

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
