I am finding it a little difficult to make the transition from the blog that has served me well for so many years. I am still going to utilize that blog as a journal for my family, but I have so many posts there that mean so much to me. Not only was I able to post about things that have happened in my family's lives, but I have been able to share many things that are near and dear to my heart, including my testimony.
I love my testimony.
I treasure it as one of my most prized possessions.
I have worked hard for my testimony and continue to work hard as it blossoms and grows.
Gaining a testimony is not an easy task, overall. There are some aspects of the gospel that are easy to accept and some that are not. What comes easy for one person is a struggle for someone else. That is the real beauty of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is truly a place for everyone who is willing to "endure to the end."
Being a disciple of Christ is not easy, nor was it ever meant to be. This life is a time for us to work, to learn, and to serve. It is also a time for us to experience joy and sorrow. They come hand in hand. You cannot have one without the other. We are meant to have times of joy so that we can remember them and reflect upon them during our times of sorrow.
I am excited to be able to share my testimony with you in many forms. One of the things that I am hoping will come from my book is the opportunity to be a motivational speaker. I have always loved attending conferences and meetings where the speaker shares his/her story and ideas that have helped him/her on the path of life. As those of you who know me know, I like to talk. I also love to help people and I hope that I will be able to combine those two loves and be an instrument in God's hand. I don't know what this path will bring. I will be happy wherever it takes me and look forward to whatever is in store.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me and for being so supportive. I have received many kind and encouraging comments, and I would just like to express my gratitude for your love and support.
I am loving my second chance at life.
