in case you wanted to know

as of recently, i have decided i want to serve a mission.

even after releasing the new missionary age for the church, i still thought i would be married // busy with school or work by the time i was 19. i know a lot of people all the sudden started turning in their papers, {especially everyone that has already graduated!} but the thought of me going never really clicked. i was never against it, but never saw myself actually going. 

we were sitting in FHE one Monday and my dad showed us THIS video, and it changed my whole perspective. i was filled with emotion and touched by the Spirit and knew in that moment that it was something i really wanted. i want everyone to have the Gospel in their lives like i do, and i want to share it with the world! i still don't know what i will be doing when next May rolls around and i turn 19 {i could be engaged {how crazy is that?} for all i know!}, but i would love to serve a mission.

i started attending mission prep class early mornings on Mondays and it is amazing what i have been learning about missionary work! i can't believe how real it is, and how much there is to learn. it makes me really excited to see what the future has in store for me, and how Heavenly Father's plan plays out! i sure do love the Gospel :)
