So two Sundays ago I was given an envelope. I thought "great another lecture." I began reading it and it was about "Miracles." I thought hmm.. okay I can do this.
My president asked me to come into his office and he said "Vicky, I've called you in here to relieve you of your services as the first counselor of the Relief Society. I also wanted to thank you for everything you have done for the YSA (young single  adults) because without you we would be nothing. Through you love and commitment to bringing others unto Christ you have changed everyone's lives here. In addition to relieving you of your services this talk will also be your farewell to everyone since next week is stake conference. Therefore prepare yourself Vicky. Good luck."

okay so I wrote this on sunday 1/19/14 and while writing this my family just got into a huge fight. I had money saved up for my mission and I automatically assumed it was my brother because it wouldn't be the first time. Long story short my dad (his pride and ego took over) told him to leave the house because how could he take money from his own family. He is only 17. So he left. I cried and i went to go look for him right after he left. And I couldn't find him. I didn't get on my knees to pray (which I should've) but in my heart I prayed and prayed to God begging him to soften my family's heart and for my brother to come back.


It's 1:30 in the morning and my mom came in saying "go to bed I don't think he's coming home tonight get some sleep.." I don't know why but my holy spirit was telling me to not go to sleep. So I didn't and guess what? He called me to go pick him up. Right when everyone 'gave up' on him and decided to sleep I stayed up waiting for his call. My baby brother is home where he should be.

My brother. He is the reason why I am going on a mission. My testimony grows stronger every single day because of my brother. He is my rock. He is my foundation for the faith I have today. I don't know what I would do without him. He is the only person I have in this world to look out for me, I'd be lost without him.

Temple- January 10 2014

If you have never been to the temple
It is so beautiful. It is so peaceful. It is amazing! I obviously can't tell you everything but if you are a member then you probably know what I felt. If you aren't a member then let me tell you this.. 
This is God's home. It is one of the many homes he has. I know he has been there because I felt his presence. I know this church is true and I know that the Book Of Mormon is true. I have faith that one day all His children will be back in his presence. I can't wait to show the people of Massachusetts the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can't wait.

Livin' like Christ :)

Jesus Christ

Goals for 2014:
  1. Try everyday to live like Christ
                     What exactly does that mean?
    • Be Humble
    • Be Compassionate
    • Be Caring
    • Be Loving
    • Be Selfless
    • Love everyone
    • Don't judge because who am I to judge you?
      2. Be the best companion that I can be. 


I am going to the temple tomorrow!!!!

I'm just freaking out... I know I shouldn't be but I can't help thinking of every bad thing I have done in my life.... I am entering God's house.. It's very overwhelming. I'm typing this and I want to cry and cancel the appointment.. But He has forgiven me, I just haven't forgave myself. Don't you ever feel that way? You ask for someone's forgiveness and they forgave you but you just can't help forgive yourself? It's a horrible feeling.

Where would you go if you can travel through time, knowing everything you know now?
 I would honestly go back to when I was 10, I was in 5th grade. I was in honor classes in elementary school. I went to a really good middle school and I was focused when I started but then I met the wrong friends. So I started doing things that weren't right. Things that I am ashamed to repeat. I may not know whoever is reading this but I messed up a lot. I made my mother cry and suffer. I made my Heavenly Father cry as well. I wasn't myself. But I can't go back in time. I can only move forward. And that's what I am going to do. I am going to try to live like Christ.

I received my temple recommendation about 3 weeks ago and today I thought: Why haven't I gone in? Like it's so beautiful and who wouldn't to go in ( if they could ).
I am so scared to enter the temple. Why?
1.  It's God's house. This is where he visits.
2. I have committed sins in my life that I am not proud of but I know that my heavenly father has forgave me.. I  haven't forgave myself.
3. It's HOLY. 83u598y3thejkfn - like that enough should cover everything...

So I called the temple today and I am going on this Friday!! After this Friday I will be completely different but the same.. if that makes any sense. I cannot believe that I am going in.. WHAT.

I just have so many emotions right now its crazy.. Goodnight beautiful world... Thank you God for the blessings I have received today. I know this gospel is true. If each and every one of you can take the time to read the Book of Mormon and ask Our Heavenly Father if it is true you shall receive an answer that will change your life. I can testify that miracles do happen as long as you have everlasting faith. <3
