I know this because I have done that very thing in my life! I know God is listening and He will give you COMFORT!!!
My Life is Sacred! September 13, 2014
Life is delicate! I want to to talk on this very subject and pray that each of you who read this blog with a softened heart will feel my concerns on the how precious your life actually is!
“Life on earth is an opportunity and a blessing. Our purpose in this life is to have joy and prepare to return to God’s presence.” Preach My Gospel Our Life on Earth Lesson.
After reading on the topic of Abortion I want to impress some thoughts upon your mind. We have the opportunity to choose whatever we want in this life. However we are not free to choose the consequences of our choices. Let me paint you a picture in your mind. You decide to go to a glorious beach with soft sand, clear water, and view that you can not describe because you would need to be there; it is that beautiful. You want to get in this clear blue water and you come across a sign that states beware of sharks! You then have many choices such as walking along the beach by the water, collecting seashells, taking pictures, walking on the pier, go to a different beach where there are no sharks, or the choice of ignoring the sign and swim anyways where you know the sharks are close by. A shark then comes and grabs you and wont let go, your choices become slim thinking do I fight back or just let the shark shred me to pieces to the point you eventually may be subject to death.
Their is a consequence to every choice we make weather it be good or evil. Just because there are ways to eliminate some consequences of the choices we make doesn’t make it right. If you decide to have premarital sex and the consequence is pregnancy the way I see it is you have one of two options you live with the child you and another created or you give that baby up for adoption. In some scenarios such as rape, incest, or a Mothers life is in jeopardy then yes abortion would be appropriate but even then it becomes a prayerful matter. There comes a lot of emotional damage that comes from sharing that sacred act of love when not in the bounds the Lord has set. The reason I feel strongly on this subject my brothers and sisters is because I would give anything to have a child born into my home. I know that God’s laws will always remain and He gives us these laws because He loves us. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for almost 2 years I had a miscarriage in that time. These precious fetus’s that are being killed 1.2 million a year could be blessing the lives of those women who are not able to bear children. Its a real concern especially for us women who would give anything to bring one of God’s spirit children to teach them right from wrong in this life. You are here right now can you even imagine if you were one of those fetus’s? Sex is a sacred and beautiful thing between husband and wife it shows a great meaning of love, devotion, and respect to one another and brings a precious life to this earth that brings a lot of joy and happiness to parents.
“While we are in mortality, we have experiences that bring us happiness. We also have experiences that bring us pain and sorrow, some of which is caused by the sinful acts of others. These experiences provide us opportunities to learn and to grow, to distinguish good from evil, and to make choices. God influences us to do good; Satan tempts us to commit sin. As with physical death, we cannot overcome the effects of sin by ourselves. We are helpless without the Atonement of Jesus Christ.” Preach My Gospel Our Life on Earth Lesson.
I know you might not agree with anything I have said and that’s okay your entitled to your opinion I do not judge you. I would ask you to do your research on this matter the effects of this act and what we can do as individuals to help and uplift others to understand that God is real He is there and He knows whats best for us and we truly can achieve happiness in this life! I love that I have been blessed in a home with loving parents who sought my happiness and taught me about the Savior Jesus Christ and His Gospel as well as right from wrong. Do understand my life was not bliss all the time every family has its hardships and heartaches. That’s why the Gospel of Jesus Christ is so IMPORTANT to understand because life is very difficult and crap happens I know I have been there. I do know that when 2 people fall in love and want to take that love and create another human being it is a blessing/privilege God gives to us so we may become like him. I invite you to click on the links below and read and pray if they’re true! God will tell you the truth be not afraid to live it! I know what I have told you today is true and I know I am blessed. I know I will have children someday and it will be my privilege to teach them the importance of the Savior because we will all make mistakes in this life and we will feel like we can never be forgiven of our sins but I know we can all make it back to the Savior Jesus Christ! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
You are here because you have a purpose to fulfill. You are important to God He knows you and loves you and He is always there even when you think He is not. Do not let the sharks of life make you a subject to death you have a choice many choices to do good in this life and become like the Savior Jesus Christ. I write this because I care I may be one person but I know I can make a difference in someones life. God bless

Agency & the Fall of Adam and Eve September 9, 2014
Adam and Eve were the first of God’s children to come to the earth. God created Adam and Eve and placed them in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve were created in God’s image, with bodies of flesh and bones. While Adam and Eve were in the garden, they were still in God’s presence and could have lived forever. They lived in innocence, and God provided for their needs.
In the Garden of Eden, God gave Adam and Eve their agency. He commanded them not to eat the forbidden fruit, or the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Obeying this commandment meant that they could remain in the garden, but they could not progress by experiencing opposition in mortality. They could not know joy because they could not experience sorrow and pain.
Satan tempted Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, and they chose to do so. This was part of God’s plan. Because of this choice, they were cast from the garden and out of God’s physical presence. This event is called the Fall. Separation from God’s presence is spiritual death. Adam and Eve became mortal—subject to physical death, or separation of the body and spirit. They could now experience disease and all types of suffering. They had moral agency or the ability to choose between good and evil. This made it possible for them to learn and progress. It also made it possible for them to make wrong choices and to sin. In addition, they could now have children, so the rest of God’s spirit children could come to earth, obtain physical bodies, and be tested. Only in this way could God’s children progress and become like Him.

The Creation! September 8, 2014
Take a good look at this picture you see below…
Look at the incredible detail. What I want to tell you is that no one took or painted this picture. It just appeared as a picture from who knows where. Think about it no one could have taken this picture or even painted it. Its just not possible…
Some of you may say what the heck. You may not even agree with what I just stated but thats what some people believe.
I know this picture/painting was created by a someone. The same is with God our Father and Jesus Christ! Christ created the earth it didn’t just appear from nowhere . I know that Jesus Christ created a place for us to live and learn and then eventually come back to Heaven.
But Alma said unto him: Thou hast had signs enough; will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, Show unto me a sign, when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets? The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. Alma 30:44
Under the direction of the Father, Jesus Christ created the earth as a place for us to live and gain experience. In order to progress and become like God, each of us had to obtain a body and be tested during a time of probation on the earth. While on the earth we are out of God’s physical presence. We do not remember our pre-Earth life. We must walk by faith rather than by sight. PMG lesson 2 Plan of salvation

Pre-Earth Life: God’s Purpose and Plan for Us September 6, 2014
God is the Father of our spirits. We are literally His children, and He loves us. We lived as spirit children of our Father in Heaven before we were born on this earth. We were not, however, like our Heavenly Father, nor could we ever become like Him and enjoy all the blessings that He enjoys without the experience of living in mortality with a physical body.
Jesus Christ is central to God’s plan. Through His Atonement, Jesus Christ fulfilled His Father’s purpose and made it possible for each of us to enjoy immortality and eternal life. Satan, or the devil, is an enemy to God’s plan.
Agency, or the ability to choose, is one of God’s greatest gifts to His children. Our eternal progression depends on how we use this gift. We must choose whether to follow Jesus Christ or follow Satan.
We are physically separated from God during life on earth, but He wants every one of His children to find peace in this life and a fulness of joy in His presence after this life. He wants us to become like Him.

PRAYER! September 5, 2014
This message of the Restoration is either true or it is not. We can know that it is true by the Holy Ghost, as promised in Moroni 10:3–5. After reading and pondering the message of the Book of Mormon, any who desire to know the truth must ask in prayer to our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ if it is true. In order to do this, we address our Heavenly Father. We thank Him for our blessings and ask to know that the message of the Book of Mormon is true. No one can know of spiritual truths without prayer.
In answer to our prayers, the Holy Ghost will teach us truth through our feelings and thoughts. Feelings that come from the Holy Ghost are powerful, but they are also usually gentle and quiet. As we begin to feel that what we are learning is true, we will desire to know all that we can about the Restoration.
Preach my Gospel lesson 1
I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove, I know the Book of Mormon is true and is a record of the people who lived here on this continent, I know that God answers prayers in His way and not the way we always expect. I know all of these things because I prayed to know the truth! I promise if you are diligently seeking for truth God will show you what He would have you do. I invite you to read the Book of Mormon, pray about it with a sincere heart, and have the missionaries teach you so you can ask any questions you need to find the truth!
