Change of Plans

So if you know me well you know that I enjoy a good plan. I struggle with uncertainty. As of Saturday morning my world has been tipped upside down a little bit. I had a somewhat of a plan for my life. But with the new change in the Sister Missionary age, I am being forced to move forward with some uncertainty. But with some uncertainty comes some certainty.

So here is what I know for sure as of 12:19 October 8, 2012:

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on this earth. I know that the work of the Lord is moving quickly forward and I know I want and need to be a part of it. I know that Jesus is the Christ and He suffered and died for all of our sins. I know I often feel inadequate and unworthy of that sacrifice. But I also know that no matter what my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. I know I have been so blessed throughout my life and I have a responsibility to bring those same blessings to people around the world.

As I work through the many uncertainties of my life I will strive to remember the things I know for certain and those things will make the list of uncertainties shorter.

I'll keep you updated on my plans for this year. Just a hint, there is a good chance I'll be traveling within the next couple months. And that makes me terrified and yet excited.

Oh and I've had, "I Hope They Call me on a Mission" stuck in my head since Saturday. Does that mean anything?

  1. Wasn't that such a crazy/amazing announcement!? I think you will make a super great missionary! And with the age change, I bet you'll end up with lots of other amazing sisters that can't wait to share the gospel. Good luck figuring your life out! It must be part of God's humor to pull the rug out from under you right when you think you're on a roll.:) Or maybe just to keep us humble and recognize our need for divine guidance. I've consistently found my plans never go according to plan. Spontaneity is good. :-)
