Things Change.

So Basically Life goes on, and things come up and we decide what we want to do with our lives, and where we want to be, and then something usually gets in the way, actually something always gets in the way.

My Plan: I wanted to finish school with a bachelors degree in two and a half years, and then probably get married, and work for like 4 years and then have kids right? okay so that's simple right. Well I would graduate at that rate when i was twenty one almost twenty two I think.

The interruption: I think I have pretty much decided to go on a mission. It just feels like the right thing to do. I know I'm only nineteen and I cant go until I'm twenty one but I can send my papers in early, regardless I have a lot of time, and why decide now? Call me crazy I guess. I love the gospel, and I've never had a problem sharing it. It just comes naturally to me, and I'm so grateful for that gift. Being out here in Utah has made me realize even more the love that I have for this gospel, and others, and how I want to bring more people to Christ. And bring them truth.

So my plans for that are demolished. I mean maybe I will finish school and then go on one, but it may be a nice break to just leave like with two semesters to go. I don't have to decide that just now though. I can wait. But I will need to get the money. I need a job =0 I wont be able to take 18 credits with a job. At least I don't think I will be able to. But then again I did do a lot in High school and I managed to survive on 5 hours of sleep every night.

What I do know, is that I'm doing the right thing. That I am suppose to be here in St. George. I know I can do whatever I put my mind to. More importantly I can do whatever I have faith in the Lord to do. His will be done. That's what it comes down. Putting your trust in Him, and having faith that things will turn out.


  1. Gabbi! I haven't talked to you in forever! I know what you mean...things do change and it all works out! I had the same thoughts when I first got out to school but there's a season for almost everything right?! I'm glad you're enjoying school though. Have fun and take advantage of every opportunity that you have! It goes by REALLY fast!
