This is Alan (he is very good looking and gave me permission to use his name, but asked to not have his picture included).  He is a new friend who lives with his sister and brother-in-law here in Utah having recently moved from Long Beach, California.  I don’t know him very well yet, but I can tell he is a good man who respects women, works hard, and is seeking truth.  Alan is currently investigating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I ain”t gonna hide the fact that I hope he joins, but whatever he decides, I am glad to have a new friend!  Oh, and he sent me the following in an email.  Totes made this girl’s day!

Give me one reason….. that I shouldn’t blog about the first thing I recorded in a professional studio!

I was just 18 when I recorded this.  It was a pretty cool experience at a time in my life when I needed expression and creativity (kinda like now!).  There is a tension, though, as I wanted to sound stylish and slur my words just a little, but then that is at the sacrifice of enunciation.  The Sophie’s choice of singing, I guess.  Take a listen:

Oh, and here’s the email that my guitar teacher, Frank Keim sent me.  I feel comfortable sharing his contact info because he IS still in business.

I wouldn’t be the musician that I am today without him.  Truth!

I didn’t get an email from heaven,

but I still believe that in a way, albeit perhaps small, the Lord’s hand is in this blog somehow.  And I’d really rather not be tried at the Spanish Inquisition for that potential heresy, if that’s alright with ya’ll.   Burn marks just do NOT look good on this girl’s skin 🙂

To my dear followers….

I’m sorry that I’m flooding your inbox.  I know you get an email every time I post, and at this point, I am writing between 15-30 new posts per day.  I think it will slow down eventually, but if you continue to follow me (and please do!!!), know that there will always be notifications.  🙂

I feel like I have pretty good judgment…

(thankfully other people do too!) but every once in a while, I might be a little off.  To my knowledge I have not caused any tears, divorces, or deaths, but I have had a friend ask me to take down a picture that he/she (gender neutrality is the key to anonymity, people) didn’t feel was entirely flattering .  So yes, I will write about the people about whom I care (see what I did there?).  But I will present you in the best light, without putting you up on a pedestal, of course.  And if ever I do cross that line of propriety, just shoot me an email, and we’ll remedy it stat.  Sound good? 🙂

Hierarchy of Digital Communication

There is a hierarchy of what is generally considered appropriate in the levels of communication.  I don’t mind giving my email out to most people.  Then if people know your full name they can find you on Facebook, and depending on how comfortable you are, you can choose to accept their friend request or not.  I along with many others won’t give my phone number out freely.  And address?  No way, Jose!  But yes, email I am quite comfortable with.

But here’s the funny thing:  IT’S EASIER TO REACH ME VIA EMAIL THAN PHONE!  Actually, scratch that, text and email are probably about equal.  Rest assured, I DO pick up the phone, listen to my messages, call people back (employers, I’m talking to you!)  And generally, I do a pretty good job of keeping in touch with people, getting back to them, etc.  I just find it interesting that “phone” kinda seems to be the VIP form of communication, but this girl ain’t that into it…

Not hating this attention thing….

The most important thing in the world (or my life)?  Nowhere near close.

Awesome nonetheless?  Fo shizzle!

Becoming a woman….

BYU Fall of 2006, I spoke the following words with complete and utter sincerity:

“My email is AmericanGirl, but now that I’m in college

Image            I’m thinking about changing it to AmericanWoman.”

And Melissa never let me forget it 🙂

I’m an All-American rebel making my big get-away…

Not a Black (name) Tag, but a Blog Tag

Screen shot 2013-08-21 at 3.20.54 AM

I did not serve a full-time mission for my church.  At one point I was planning on it and even bought a bunch of cute clothes, and we all know that’s the most important part about being a missionary right? 🙂  Some days I so badly wish I had, while other days I feel more confident about my decision not to.  But it’s all good, cuz guess what?  I can use this blog to share what I believe!  It is not my primary purpose in writing and not every post deals with it, but it is a part of who I am, and I wish to share it with others who may be interested in learning ways that they can be happy and have a relationship with God.

Our church leaders recently announced a major change in some of the policies concerning how missionary work would go about.  The LDS Church always has the same purpose of bringing people to Christ, but now there is huge push to utilize technology and social media to be more efficient and user-friendly.  You no longer have to have 2 missionaries come into your home (although you can if you want to) to ask questions.  You can do it online here.  It doesn’t matter if your room is a mess.  You can even do it in your underwear!  Haha.  So maybe I didn’t have a black tag, but I have a “missionary work” blog tag.  Click on it if you want to learn more.  Don’t worry, we won’t dunk you (baptism!) right away 🙂

Oh, and as always you can shoot me an email at anytime if you have any questions:
