“I will stand as a WITNESS of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places.”

Screen shot 2013-08-03 at 11.20.58 AMThis was a significant part of the theme I would state every Sunday in Young Women’s.  It comes from this passage in the Book of Mormon.

I am not an official spokesperson or representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  (But check out more about Michael Otterson here-he’s one of my faves)  But I still do believe it is important (AND GREATLY DESIRE!) to stand as a witness of God, even, and especially when it comes to this blog.

Now I am not perfect by any stretch.

And is there sometimes a bit of possible tension between my 3 fold identity of Mormon, woman, and human?

Absolutely. 

But has there ever been a clash that I believe could

hurt the image of the Church or cause major confusion?

No. 

And if there ever was, I don’t believe I would expose it, at least not completely.

Plus it’s not like I’m super famous anyways so even if I did I’m not sure anyone would care.  🙂

I’m only one voice in a million, but you ain’t takin’ that from me!

it is from this wonderful waving woman…)

love this song, it reminds me of Fiji.  It will change your life. 

LISTEN TO IT!

Girl, get back to your thesis

ANYWAYS, just wanted to express that I am conscious of the fact that this blog in some small way represents not only myself, not only my family, not only my friends, not only the LDS Church, but also Christ himself.

Christ!

Is that blasphemous or arrogant?  No way, Jose.  Peace out!

PS.  I’d give my bangs (first picture!) a B+ that day.

What are you a witness of?

And please don’t stop reading my blog because I

ended that last sentence with a preposition…

Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, and Katherine Wilkinson

Jesus Christ had his hell in Gethsemane, Joseph Smith had his dark place in the Sacred Grove, and I had my rough (garden) patch as well.

But all 3 of us pulled through to see the light.

I usually don’t like to state the obvious:

but I just wanna  be very clear here:

If you are experiencing trials, take a lesson from these 3 people:

Although gardening is great and black and white photos can be very beautiful, you want your life to be in Color and NOT in some Secret Grove of Golgotha.

AND IT CAN BE!

Yes I am aware that I just compared myself to the Savior of the World and the Prophet of the Restoration.  And yes, I am expecting a thunderbolt of blasphemy any minute now…

Not gonna lie I’m pretty proud of this one, ya’ll…
