:)

Okay, I am finally doing better on my Angela's Accessories blog. Now I will try harder on this one. I think at this point it is a little over whelming to really go back and try to catch up. So, I am going to start writing and posting with the current stuff and then do memory post and pictures as I feel so inclined :) Let's just see how it goes. And Rochelle, even though I have done horriable with this new years resolution I am doing good on most of the others. I have done my Visiting Teaching every month so far this year and am plugging away at the BOM before June :) Working out is still a work in progress too ;)

First I wanted to share some thoughts that I have been having lately. I got to go to the Young Women Auxiliary Training Meeting last night up in Salt Lake with the General YW Presidency. We sat just a few rows away from them and I just must say, they're AMAZING women. We were reminded of the promise that says "When two or more are gathered in my name, then there I will be also." (Not positive that that is an exact quote, but it is pretty close.) There it is again...when you do his work, we can demand that he is there to help. Just like if we follow his commandments... he has promised that we will be blessed and those blessings can not and will not be held from us. We can as we follow the commandments, demand those blessings from our Heavenly Father and we should ask for them. I have been putting this to the test. AND IT WORKS!!! I love how the church for sees a need of the people of the church and they fill it. Plus their are not many churches that tell their women to become scholars of the scriptures (did you notice that in the vt message this last month?). Love it! I love that we are encouraged to "be strong and of good courage", to lead and teach our families and the people around us. I love that we as WOMEN can stand tall! I am so grateful to have witnessed so many things that have only strengthened my testimony of Jesus Christ. Satan is out to make you as miserable as he is, DO NOT LET HIM WIN!!!!

Okay, that is all I have to say, for now. :) Love you!
