shemightbeagiant: waitingonamissionary: Now both of the missionaries who taught me are back home, and it’s really weird to think about it. They’re both my Facebook friends. It’s just such a weird feeling! If I ever spoke to them now, I’m pretty sure “Elder” would slip out of my mouth. I’m embarrassed just thinking about it (if you haven’t noticed by now, pretty much everything embarrasses...

I just got out of my interview with my stake president for my temple recommend. The whole time I could feel my legs shaking and tried to hide the fact by attempting to look pleasant and smiling. On the ride home (my VT companion and one of the ladies we visit were with me), I was still really nervous. They were asking me questions about when I wanted to go and other things like buying temple...
He finally sent me more pictures of himself in the email today! I’m all giddy. He needs to stop being so adorable already…. and now I’m embarrassed. I’m done….
I have my interview with my bishop in three hours for my temple recommend.

Emailing my missionary right now. :D
Only 60 more days until I leave for the MTC, and only 188 more days until Elder F comes home.
Love increases through righteous restraint.– David A. Bednar Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (via i-em-ironman)
I’ve had a crazy week. One that was full of a lot of family drama. I’m really grateful that it’s ended. I don’t think I could have taken much more. I just want to go back home to see if Elder F sent me a letter. I feel like I need some encouragement from him specifically. I had an overall great day. I went and saw The Great Gatsby, and I loved it. However now I feel just...
What happens inside the home is far more important than what we encounter...– Stanley G. Ellis Of the Seventy (via i-em-ironman)
I haven’t been very good with my countdown with Elder F since I got my mission call, but only 189 more days until he comes home. :)
We are not spiritual orphans. We are not alone.– Stanley G. Ellis Of the Seventy (via i-em-ironman)
First time in a while but I’m having one of those nights where I can’t sleep because Elder F is on my mind. I, in my opinion, have been rather good at dealing with missing him. In the beginning, I was pretty bad. I cried probably every night for a month, but then I was able to control my own emotions and have been going strong. And now after one girly anime, I can’t rid of this...
God is not the author of confusion, but is the author of peace.– Quentin L. Cook Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (via i-em-ironman)
I’m on the third part of the first District, and I had to pause it. It’s the baptism part, and I just had this flood of emotions pop up on me. I haven’t really written too much down about my baptism because I still vividly remember it, but I felt like I should at least write it down here and then copy it somewhere else for myself. [[MORE]] The only people that were able to...
imissyoubrazil answered your question: Where would be a good store to go looking at for… TJ Maxx, Macy’s, JC Penney’s, Charolette Russe, Forever21, Vitage Shops, ASOS, Delia’s, OLD NAVY, Gap, Banana Republic, Romy, Nordstroms, H&M Thank you so much! :D I’ve always hated shopping, so I never know where to go for anything.
Where would be a good store to go looking at for missionary clothes? I went shopping today, and I didn’t find very much at all. Any ideas?
Be a true friend. Reach out to those living in adverse circumstances.– Richard G. Scott Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (via i-em-ironman)
I was at a relative’s house. One of the cousins asked what exactly I was going to be doing on my mission. I wasn’t paying too much attention or gave much thought to my answer because I was in a bad mood. So what came out of my mouth was, “Teaching peeps, spitting mad truth at them”. Oh my gosh…. What am I going to do with myself?
Do all you can to have a Christ-centered home.– Richard G. Scott Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (via i-em-ironman)
I did receive two messages concerning my last post, which I’m thankful for. Thank you, Cassie and Anon. I don’t really see this situation as the adversary or my family holding me back but as something that just happened. I talked it out more with my older sister, seeing as it was honestly more about her and her boyfriend than me. It seems like she doesn’t care who knows, so I...
Something has happened with my family, and it’s a very complicated situation that might not be completely solved for some time now. It’s making me, for the first time, question if the mission is the right thing for me. I’ve wanted to go on it since they made the announcement in October. It took an enormous amount of effort for me to finish my papers, but I was so sure that the...

Watching a 7 year old and a 16 month old is the fastest way to tire me out. :)
