happy weekend!

when i was 14 years old, i won a scholarship to study ballet for 8 weeks in the summer in new york city. i was as nervous as they come. when i got on the plane to head to the city, i saw president monson {the prophet of our church} already seated on the plane. i will never forget looking into his clear blue eyes as i talked to him and feeling so peaceful, loved and safe.

today and tomorrow president monson and other inspired church leaders are speaking to us. it’s called general conference and it is one of my favorite things to look forward to twice a year.
if you’d like to feel inspired, encouraged, or just learn a little about what i believe, you can watch it here.
happy saturday!
