About This Blog
A blog about my life, universe, etc. At any given time you might find something endlessly interesting or just me ruminating on something else, which no one (not even myself) finds interesting. That's the way blogs go, I suppose. Anyway, I was eleventh in line, and you weren't. Hah!

About My Family
My mom is a
lawyer in Pickerington; my stepdad and dad are computer guys, and my stepmom (who works with my dad) is an engineer. My sisters are, in order of age, a photographer, an artist, and a person too young to have her own website. My brothers are, in order of age, living up north, and again, a person too young to have a website. At some point soon I'll be collecting links for my aunts, uncle, and cousins. ^_^

Counsel with the Lord...  

Alma 37: 36-37
Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.

Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.

Okay, so I've gone through... probably 220 Fast Sunday meetings in my life, give or take (you have to take out all the years we were inactive, plus the months I was at my dad's house, etc.) In that whole time, I don't think I've ever really conciously been looking for an answer for something, and actively fasted and prayed for that answer. It's weird -- you'd think it'd have come up rather sooner, but it hasn't. I've fasted for other stuff, just not answers, per se.

Anyway, it's been a very different experience already. Maybe it's because this purpose means something to me -- maybe because I'm really looking for an answer, and have committed myself to following through on the answer I receive -- but it's much more meaningful this time around than most other times. This would be something I'd ask about in prayer anyway; I don't know why it seems like fasting is making it more, like, genuine, but it is.

This is probably why they're having me teach in Primary instead of Gospel Doctrine. ^_^
