Facing Fear.....Doing The Happy Dance!


These photos show how I am feeling today and have felt since this past Sunday at 12 noon. Ahhhh......... a big sigh of relief for sure. I have done it.....I have faced it and it really wasn't that awful. I was asked to speak in church and this is not something that I am really comfortable with......but I did it and I think it went well. No one hissed, booed or threw any hymn books at me and I don't think I observed anyone sleeping. :)

My only prayer is that if just one person benefits from anything that was said out of love.....
Well then.............Amen

How grateful I am for the gospel of Jesus Christ and for the joy, peace, comfort and purpose it brings to my life.







Second Timothy 1:7 says, For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Words to live by.............

Thats AwEsOmE!! Iv made me promise her a few years ago that the next time i was asked id say YES.I hadnt since before Ken and i were married. For some reason it did the trick. Ken about fell out of his chair when he passed me the phone (knowing what i was being asked to do)and heard me say "sure i can do that".

Good for you Jenny! I had never spoken in my ward and had been asked once and turned them down. My sweet Steven said "You should be ashamed"......so I mentioned that on the stand and looked at the Bishop and said "So now I'm good for another ten years?" LOL
