Blessings and Thank you!

It has been a month full of blessings to be thankful for and thank you’s to be given. Where to start,  beginning the month with giving thanks to our service members and veterans.  I love veterans day being able to thank our service men and women that have served our country and those that are serving and in harm’s way. Thank you for all you do for our country!

The next blessing in my life this month is having a new addition to our family. He is a blessing to my brother and his wife and is a fighter if there ever was one and oh so adorable. Everyone loves you sweet boy and everyone is praying for you everyday. You are a blessing to this family and especially to your dad who loves you dearly Julian. 23621507_110175503094869_8346911682534119458_n

Finally, I need to say a big thank you to my family who has been a big support for me this year. Helping me achieve my masters degree and through this difficult school year I’ve had. Thank you for all you guys do!

Thank you to my heavenly father who gave his life that we could come to this earth and live the life we each are to live. Without the atonement this world would be a different place. I need my heavenly Fathers hand to help guide me in directions that I should take. Recently I have come to really listen to the words of the hymn ” I need thee every hour” I want to share with everyone a verse from this hymn. ” I need thee every hour, in joy or pain. Come quickly and abide, or life is vain.” What I can take away from this verse is we need our heavenly father during the good times and difficult ones. He  will always be there to take on our joys and sorrows, that is through the gift of the atonement which I am grateful we were given.

I want to end this post being that it is Thanksgiving Eve. I wish everyone a happy and safe thanksgiving with your families and friends 🙂

Which road to take?


Wow! What a week it’s been, I have had so much time on my hands being out sick with double pink eye :0. This year by far compared to any prior years of teaching has been the most difficult time. With all the demands in education you aren’t getting the support that is needed from administration and when you do you are getting blamed for things that are not in your control. It is a sad state the road education is taking. Which leads me to my question what road do I take in May?  Do I stay in education, what state should I try for? Leave education? Go back to school for something else.

At the beginning of this year I applied for an interim certificate to teach in Idaho. I received the certificate and now just need to land a job up there. That’s the state I want to give a shot for. The scenery is amazing and their ranking in Education is a lot higher than AZ being 51, it’s very disappointing.  The only thing I would have to work on is changing my certificate to a standard by August 2020 which I am sure I can cover that as well I have to take the Praxis test, which should be no problem there and having that test behind me will allow me to teach anywhere that test is required.

Based on my thoughts I feel I’m going to go with Idaho and see where it leads me  next year :).

Who am I?


I am a daughter of my heavenly Father who loves me and I love him. I will stand as a witness of god at all times and in all things and in all places (Mosiah 18:9). That last part is my favorite part of that scripture. My purpose on this earth as a daughter and child of my heavenly father is to share my light with others by standing as a witness of him at all times.

I was born and raised in the church my mother being the active one. My father never accepted the gospel to be baptized. My mother has always been the one to encourage us to go to Church and be the very best we can be by reading our scriptures daily, saying family prayer and having family home evening each Monday night as well as attending the temple and keeping our baptismal and temple covenants. The gospel has been a very important part of my life and without it I literally do not know where I would be.

Growing up I never had that perfect home life with two loving parents strong in the church it has been myself to decide the road I want to take in life. As a child I witnessed many things from my parents constantly fighting up to their divorce. Each time, I would turn to my heavenly father for guidance and comfort to get through each disagreement of theirs. I still remember to this day of my father telling my sister and I to not say anything during one of his rages. That moment I stood up for my sister, mom and myself and told him do not talk to us like that and we can say what we want and how we want to say it.

Based on what I went through as a child I feel it has impacted the way I communicate with others. When it comes to sharing my thoughts and feelings I have a hard time expressing them and making sure I am not offending anyone. I am an introvert if there ever was one and getting to know who I am takes longer than a few months. I’ve noticed if someone has something to say that will lighten the mood helps me get to know them easier.  I never try to be someone else I am not and will never lie about things I say or do.  I am who I am and proud to be the daughter of god that I truly am.


Meaning behind my Title “Life Lesson’s learned.”

Life Lesson’s learned, why did I choose that as a Title to my site. On Sunday I had the opportunity to attend A state wide broadcasted Stake Conference. One of the talks by one of the seventy’s- Taniela Wokolo was on how to act in doctrine and principle.  One of the Areas that Taniela spoke about was how he doesn’t refer to his trials or troubling times as trials. He looks and refers to them as learning experiences.

Learning experiences are there to helps us grow and learn from things which we experience throughout our everyday life. Everything we go through is a learning experience in one way or another. I choose the title life lesson’s learned based on the fact that the learning experiences we go through in life teaches us lessons to be learned.
