Who am I?

A blog a blog, whose idea was it to start a blog. Well, I can tell ya it wasn't mine to begin with, but I am grateful that I did. I never thought that I personally would ever start a blog. Not that blogs are a bad thing in any way shape or form. I personally have never been good with typing/writing anything I'm thinking. Usually it comes out all jumbled. But I decided to take on a new challenge and we will see if it comes out all jumbled.

As of right now I'm currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also nicknamed the Mormons). We have been given the opportunity to share and teach the gospel online (aka, facebook and blogging etc.). This is really cool because I not only have this opportunity to share and teach the gospel. But this is an amazing opportunity for me to personally learn and grow. Teaching has never been one of my strong points, but I have noticed that as I have tried my best to align my will with God's that things I only dreamed of doing have become reality.

 My main purpose for this blog is to be able to help others come closer Christ by sharing the growing experiences that I do have while on my mission. There is so much to be learned while serving a mission. Honestly, a mission is hard. I have definitely had days where I just wanted to crawl up in a ball and cry till I fell asleep. So why do I still continue to serve? Because as I continue to teach I continue to learn, and one of the greatest lessons that I am always learning is how to better lean on our Savior Jesus Christ. Everyday I feel His love more and more. I come to know Him better and the best part is living as He did. As we serve others, I remember Him. As we teach those who will listen, we can feel His presence and His love. This is why. He lives and He loves us. I'm am only a tool. Heavenly Father works through me to help bring His children home. So please if you have questions ask them, we were not placed on this earth to wander around aimlessly. There is a plan, and we will be guided as we search with an open mind and heart.
