Someone/Something That Has Had A Big Impact On Me...
Brother West:
Growing up outside of Utah, I had early morning seminary. I got up around 5:30am and went to seminary at 6am. First year was exciting, second year was good, third year was tough, and fourth year I didn't think I could do it anymore but I graduated!! My first 3 years my teachers was Brother West. I only wish there were more Brother Wests in the world. My first year was his first year and he had only been a member of the Church for a couple of years before that. I learned so much from about the scriptures but also life lessons. My third year (his last year), I was behind and he offered extra credit which was helping his elderly neighbor fix up her yard a bit. I was the only one who showed up. That 2 or 3 hours were... well I don't really know how to explain it but I enjoyed every minute of it. We talked about the church and struggles in life. At the end of doing yard work he told me I would get the extra credit for helping and I told him that I no longer wanted it. He was shocked and but that's what he taught us. You shouldn't do good for a reward, you should just do good. I know I can't really tell things every good, I guess you just had to be there but I will never ever forget that time I had with Brother West. He was married and had 3 beautiful daughters. Twins Savannah and Olivia and baby Madalyn. Brother West died of Cancer (I was here in Utah), I got to talk to him before he died. It was really hard not to cry on the phone but the one thing that we talked about was "the one". He gave me some great advice about knowing whether or not that person was right for me to marry. I cried for along time when I found out he had cancer and when he died. He was the most Christ like person I have ever met. Sometimes I think about him and what he is doing... I still get teary eyed thinking that he is no longer with us, but I know we will see him again someday. I know that when I got married in the Temple, he was there=)

Delta SemiFinal Play Off

Blake and I skipped school yesterday to go up north to The University of Utah football stadium to support Hadley!!! We left Cedar around 10am and went shopping<3 It's been forever since I've been in a mall! Blake and I have been feeling oddly sick so I really couldn't shop hard core, but took some medicine and found some jeans!!! I love it when I buy something new. Buying something new and wearing just gives ya some much confidence. Aww I just love shopping<3 Anyways after spending some money, we went and ate at Texas Roadhouse- YUM! Then we hurried up to the U and froze our bums off! The Rabbits had a great season and unfortunately lost to Hurricane High. The final score was 7 to 36... I'm pretty sure? In football, you win as a team and lose as a team so there should be no finger pointing. We are really proud of Hadley!!!

A picture of a place I've been...

This is the Neuschwanstein Castle, it's in Germany. You know Disney's castle? Well they are based off this European castle. I went to Europe with my father the summer before 9th grade. Europe is such a beautiful place!

I also got to go to Dachau Concentration camp. The gate translated says "Work Makes You Free". It was so interesting to see everything, like where they slept, the gas chamber, and the incinerators. You could feel the spirit there but just made you so sick to your stomach to know how many lives were lost there.

The trip was interesting... I think it would be very strange if I said I had a blast, my ex-step mother is crazy and had bipolar moments about every day (and this happened every stinking vacation!!!). Even though she is the mother of my 2 wonderful half sisters, I bet you can tell that I'm not very fond of her. Though it's very sad that my dad has been divorced twice (he can really sing "All My Ex's Live In Texas") and my sisters will have the same questions as I did with divorce parents, which hopefully will not affect their lives in a big way, but anyways.... at least I can I've been to Europe=)
