Okay, I finally did it! Holly, Tara and my sister Cindy finally talked me into reading Twilight! The author is Stephenie Meyer. She is an LDS author. I bought it yesterday and finished it today around 1:00. It was really suspenseful!! I couldn't put it down. The second book in the series is New Moon. I just went and got it. I'm anxious to see where this book will take the story! If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. The movie comes out 12/12/08.

I am so grateful that the early pioneers of the church had the courage to stand strong for their convictions. My heart goes out to them for the many trials and the persecution they had to endure. My family had a reunion in Nauvoo a few years back and it opened my eyes even more to their great courage and their commitment to the Lord. We were also able to visit Carthage where the prophet was killed. I have a deep admiration and love for Joseph Smith. I know he was a prophet of God and that he restored The Gospel of Jesus Christ in these the latter days.

Yesterday we had a youth temple trip to the San Antonio Temple and I was able to go with them. We left the church around 1:30. Got to CiCi's Pizza around 4:00- ate and then on to the temple for the baptismal session for the youth. We got back to Corpus around 10:30. I am so glad I got to go and see all the youth (especially Austin and Taylor) get a chance to be baptized for those who never got the chance here on earth to hear about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I rode in the car with our Ward's Young Women's President- Tynel Jarnagin. It was fun talking and getting to know her better- She is so... sweet. I'm so grateful I had the chance to attend the temple with the youth and youth leaders. It was a very Special day!

I made these cupcake pops for part of our 4th of July Celebration yesterday. I got the idea from a really neat blog site- Bakerella. Of course mine didn't look quite as nice as the ones on the site, but if you don't compare them they look pretty good. My kids really love them. Hope you had a great 4th of July. Below are some cupcakes I made for Mother's Day. I got the idea off the same blog site. I love to be creative and try new things. If any of you know of any sites I might be interested in, please let me know.

I am so grateful to live in such a blessed nation. In Ether 2:12, from The Book of Mormon, it states: "Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ". I know this is true and pray that the God will continue to protect America for all those who have faith in his Son Jesus Christ.
I am so grateful for our Founding Fathers
I know they were inspired to come to America so that the
Gospel of Jesus Christ
could be restored in these Latter Days.
I know that the Declaration of Independance is an inspired document.
