What seems to be the problem officer?

 At least once have you been pulled over by a police officer?
  Before my mission I can say that it was only once that they stop me and it wasn't because of speeding OK.  Here on my mission I can say that it has been twice and that includes going to court and everything, again not because of speeding, the only thing that I did once was run a red light and they didn't even pulled me over they send me the ticket.

    I want to tell you what I feel when a police officer stops me.
  Well I always get nervous when the police officer is giving  the sign " Pull over" my heart starts going really fast. In that moment I ask myself ... Whats wrong ? I start getting mad at the police (In my mind of course) Then without telling whats wrong he says: Can I have your licence and car registration please? (Yeah... I know it has been a few times). Then he goes to his car... I'm wondering  whats happening... A few minutes he comes back... He tells me what's wrong and then he leaves me with a ticket. Not nice...Then I start to realize... its true... he is right... And then comes the process that I have to fix the problem and then...... The Payment.
    The feelings that I experience when I'm aware of something that I'm doing wrong are the same. And how much happiness I experience when I go to my Heavenly Father and ask for forgiveness. He gives me the strength to pay for what I did. The best part of all is that I don't have to do it alone I have my Savior Jesus Christ always to help me out. One of my favorite scriptures is in Matthew 11: 28-30

    " Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden  is light."

   I know that He loves us and that if we truly want to fix our life He is there to Help us in any way. We just need to COME to HIM!

Why Fear?

 I am the kind of person that is always afraid in the night. When I was little I used to have a night light near my bed and I would sleep with my older sister, because I didnt had a room of my own.When my older sister got married I had to do some new adjustments. It was hard for me but I rely on my Father in Heaven and as well as my earthly father who will stay with me and give me a blessing. I am gratefull for that in my life. When I think about those times I know that I wasnt alone and that my Heavenly Father protected me. I know that He can Protect you and that if you trust in Him and ask for His Help He will give you what you need. So why Fear? 
      " ...for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day." Alma 36:3

Nuestra vida esta llena de Cambios

     En la mision cada seis semanas hay cambios, puede ser de area o puede ser de compañerismo. En este caso para mi fue de ambos. Es una nueva experiencia y cada vez que ocurren estos cambios veo lo mucho que el Señor confia en mi y en lo que puedo contribuir en esta nueva area. Los cambios nos dan una oportunidad de mejorar y de analizar lo que hemos hecho y logrado. Por eso cada dia es diferente con un nuevo amanecer y una nueva oporunidad. Nuestra vida aqui fuese aburrida si todo fuese lo mismo cada dia. Estoy agradecida a mi Padre Celestial por todo lo que me ha dado. Amo el servir como misionera, lo que he aprendido ha tenido que ser por medio de pequeños cambios que me han ayudado a fortalecerme y estar mas cerca de mi Padre Celestial. Más aún conocer mejor a mi Salvador Jesucristo se que el nos ama y dio su vida por nosotros para que pudieramos ser salvos. Se que puedo cambiar para mejor cada dia y ser un ejemplo al mundo de que Cristo vive y que podemos cambiar nuestra vida y verdaderamente ser Feliz.
En el Libro de Mormón en Alma 37:6 dice: ..." Por medio de cosas pequeñas y sencillas se realizan grandes cosas"

Have you ever broken something?...

I remember times when I would break something, my siblings would say "You Always" that made me feel sad  but that was me all the time. They called me butterfingers. Right now I'm not sure if I continue being the same, it hasn't happen for a while but maybe I shouldn't mention it. So this is something that my companion ask me last Sunday. Have you ever broken something? I just looked at her and said "Are you kidding me?

This is one of those stories that my family always laughs about...

It was summer time, a really amazing sunny day, we had everything packed, they ask me for my waterproof camera so I brought it. We were going to go in a boat and then stop at different islands and do some snorkeling there. Well we all got inside the boat and it started going. My sister asked me for the camera again and I was going to give it to her, I was trying to figure out how it worked and then my sister try to take it from me and I let it fall on the floor I got so nervous that it would fall to the water that when I was going to grab it I kick it with my foot and then it went strait to the water we just said goodbye to the camera as we saw it from the distance.

Just like that experience I have a lot more and I could tell you story after story. But as you know there are times in our life that we only find that all is broken. In those times is when we can learn more about our Savior love. I know that with the help of the Savior we can mend things even if we think there is no way. He can give us the peace and courage that we need to mend our lives.

The greatest Text Book The Scriptures

   When I was going to school back some "time ago" my favorite class was science I actually didnt like the class because of the teacher but because of the pictures in the Text Book. Then as I continue the studies through college I needed to start reading instead of just looking at the pictures. What I found was really interesting how every two to three years or even less than that the editions would change because they discover something new that wasnt in the last edition so in order to add more they nedeed to make a new and improve edition. That was good and bad at the same time, good because you would learn more but not so good in the other way because you cant buy it from another person that already took the class you would need to buy it new and the cost was way more.
   In that same note I am so grateful for the scriptures, their teachings from prophets of old can still teach us about everything that we need to do in order to come back to live with our Heavenly Father. I am happy that they dont change they have even the power to change us. Have you ever wonder how old the scriptures are from the time that they were writen?  Its even hundreds of years before Christ and we can still learn from them. Its never old enough to leave behind with the other old Books, and the best thing is that they dont change.

    " For He is the same yesterday, to-day, and forever..."

       " For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal Round."  1 Nephi 10: 18-19

The rock inside my heart

   When I was little like nine years old or more my mom taught me the greatest lesson I could have receive in all my childhood. The lesson was based on a imaginary ROCK! that's the part that I love the imaginary things but for me was a real thing. The first time that my mom told me about this was in a day that I was not a very good girl and I wasn't obedient so she took me in to the room and sat down with me in her bed and after talking for a while I said sorry and that I would be better and then she said: " I want to trust in you, from now on I am going to give you something and you need to make sure you don't loose it." And then with her hand close to her heart she took a little imaginary rock from her heart and put it in my heart, she said that the rock that she gave me means trust and that now I was 100% trusted, but it was my responsibility to keep that trust and if I failed the rock was going to fall down and she would take it back. Of course eventually it fell again and for me was a terrible thing I would cry so much when I knew I had failed, but Her love was always there to help me get the rock back into my heart.   

We have a loving Heavenly Father that in order to trust in us we need to keep His comandments and when we do we are 100% trusted. But He knew that we would all make mistakes so He gave His Son to help us to repent and gain back His trust and follow Him. I know that He is there for us always and I want Him to continue trusting in me I know its hard sometimes but its possible with His help.

" For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever beliveth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life" John 3:16
