Life has been so busy!!! My son was Baptised on Nov 1st 2009 and it has been one of the most meaningful joys of my life. I have started homeschooling Brian and I see such a change in the development of the young man he is becoming. It seemed like when he was in public school if it wasn't a bully he was having trouble with it was always something, almost like a depression. I think that once kids become a target to bully's they have a very hard time changing that status and I see true happiness and Joy in Brian since we started homeschooling. Our family is becoming stronger in our faith and starting to feel that the routine of prayers and scripture are "The Norm". Becoming a convert is not an easy adjustment. My life has changed so much and I know everyday that this was the right choice for me and my family. We have been truly blessed with wonderful family and friends and a ward family that has been so kind to us. I look forward to church and as a child I remember feeling that church was so boring and oh, how I dreaded it. I now know that it is when you know you are in the right place, the place you were always meant to be..it feels right!! Thanking my Heavenly Father for every breath.

I'm so excited. My son has decided to be Baptised. I cant tell you the prayers I have made for this and how much I have wanted this. I am so happy to see him make such amazing choices at the age of 12. We sat tonight with the missionaries and what a beautiful thing to watch your own child explain who God is to them and what it would mean to be Baptised. My heart is TRULY FULL!!!

To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6) I love this so much, I know it is not to late for my Son to grow into a strong child of God and that with what I have taught him in his first 12 years and in the next several will be a large portion of the man he will soon become.

When I was about 10 I went to the Library with my Grandmother and I was able to pick a couple of books. I was more interested in this little wooden chart that I found with PSALMS 23 on it. I took it home and read it and read it..and even today I remember it word for word.
Today I was driving in a heavy amount of traffic and as I started getting worked up over the rudeness of people and how dangerous cell phone users are..I remembered that I have the things I need and that Heavenly Father is with me so I took a nice deep breath and everything looked so much more calm and beautiful. I'm still training my mind to think as a child of God.
One of the hardest things I have had to adjust to is living without coffee. I love coffee and I have always loved drinking it at night. I find that since I gave up coffee I have been feeling so much better and my over all energy level is higher. Im pretty sure that is my blessing from Heavenly Father:)
I'm so excited to share my challenges and my spiritual growth with others that might be venturing into the CONVERSION world and also would love to hear from Life Long Mormons that give positive feedback for a new Convert. Come on in and stay awhile!
