I am so thankful for the knowledge that I have of my Savior Jesus Christ. He is the only way that any of us can be saved. It is through His grace that we can have hope in this life, and in the life to come.

I love this chance that Easter gives us each year to show our gratitude for His selfless sacrifice made for all mankind. Because of Him we can repent and be forgiven of our sins-our mistakes and sufferings can be made right through Him. Because of Him each one of us will live again, and death will have no victory over us or those we love. Because of Him we can change and become the men and women He knows we can be. Because of Him life is meant to be full of joy and happiness, and we can share that joy with all those around us.

Because of Him, the truth of His gospel is on the earth in its fullness once again, and I am SO blessed to have it in my life. He is my dearest friend.

Happy Birthday!

Today is the birthday of one of my most favorite people in the entire world! Randi Skye Singleton, also known as Singleton, Singlebutton, Indiana, and Sister Liddiard. She holds a special place in my heart, along with Robyn Johnson, as one of the two that "killed me" at the end of my mission. Both of them had to put up with a lot from me during my last transfer. I was a mess (and not the southern definition of a mess, which is actually a good thing to be) about going home, and they are what kept me sane. She taught me the importance of working hard and yet still having the most fun that you possibly can. We worked so hard and had the best time of our lives that transfer.
We were great friends on the mission, but since coming home I can honestly say that she has become one of my dearest friends. She is a true friend if ever there was one. I can never have a bad day when I am around her and am SO thankful that God put us together as companions and eternal friends. 

And now....since she is likely going crazy that I have given her her very own birthday post, I will finish it off with some great pictures for her enjoyment. haha!

I have some of the most awesome friends EVER. Seriously, I am one blessed chic. I may not super popular and have a million friends everywhere I go, but the friends I have are the most important kind-true friends. I would not be the person I am without each of them. I had some AWESOME mission companions, and have had (and still do have) some pretty incredible roommates.

Families are Forever

I have a pretty amazing family. Basically, I think they are the best around. No battle.
Last August, my Grandpa passed away. He and I were extremely close. My whole life I have never lived more than 15 minutes away from him and my Grandma (except when I served my mission), and we have spent countless hours together all through my life.
Watching him die was, hands down, the absolute hardest thing I have experienced so far in my life. Only those who have experienced it can understand. I literally watched him die. I watched him struggle to breathe for hours, and then I watched him take his last breath as I held his hand. And it broke my heart. But as I stood there for the first few minutes after he passed away, I thought about how thankful I am for eternal families. I am so grateful to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life, which gives me the knowledge that we will be with those we love again.
I have been thinking about him a lot these past few weeks as the holidays are here. I miss him like crazy. But I know I will see him again. And I am so grateful for that.
