Lately, my posts have been about letting our light shine, finding where you are gifted, etc... Well, what do I want to be? First of all, I want to be a stay-at-home mom, and homeschool my children! That's the best calling!! :) After highschool & college though, I would love to, Lord willing, become a hospital nurse(possibly ER), and help many people physically, while being a light in their life spiritually! I just LOVE science and math (minus the geometry :) haha). People need compassion, love, and encouragement--especially when they are suffering, as well as helping them with their medical issues (which I just LOVE that part of it :) ) I am hoping to apply for the VolunTEEN program ( a program where teenagers can volunteer and help out in a hospital) in January. I'm soo excited! Anyway, besides helping patients, nursing is a greatskill that I can Lord willing use with my family, friends, etc..., which will be very useful. I can't wait! :)

Hi Everyone! Sorry, I know I haven't posted in a looong time. It's been really busy with school and everything....! Anyway, this past weekend was the 62nd annual Ladies Missionary Conference, and I had the blessing of attending. It was very encouraging! The theme this year was "We are the Vessels", the speakers did great presenting their work to everyone! In every presentation, they showed how from their love for others, many heard the Gospel. Even if you feel like you can't do much to be a blessing in others' lives, don't worry! God can use your life in many ways that you never imagined possible if you just ask Him! One way to start is, just see where you are gifted. What do others complement you for, and in what areas are you just naturally talented? You can use those gifts to really make a difference. You don't have to go all the way across the World to be a missionary--just look around...there are many needs in the US! For example, one of the speakers at the conference presented how she saw the many refugees moving into an apartment area, and she prayerfully moved in to one of the apartments herself. She started a Breakfast Club with the Girls there, where every Saturday they had a fun breakfast together, and afterwards studied the Bible. Through this, many girls' lives were touched by God's love! Besides, you never know the difference you can make on a person's life without you even knowing it!!! Along with great speakers, it was nice to see friends there that I haven't seen in a looooong time!! After the conference, there were jars filled with candy (yum! :) ) and had one magnet with a Bible verse.
