Controversy can overshadow talent and achievement….

There are SOOOO many examples of this, but here are just a few:


1)  Kanye West- (um, Taylor Swift incident, anyone?)

2)  Eminem (If CNN has a top 10, that’s pretty bad Marshall)

3)  John Mayer (You know I love you Johnny, but don’t be spilling your secrets about women! Plus, chastity is where it’s at, anyways.)

And countless, countless others.  These people are often UNBELIEVABLY GIFTED, but when they get brought up in conversation, unfortunately that all often just gets forgotten because of mistakes they’ve made.

Just one more reason to keep my clothes modest.  That and I haven’t hit the gym in a while.

PS.  I do believe in repentance and redemption.  I do.

My Shadow Days are Over Now.

9 months ago I was in a deep, dark black hole. 

Lyrics here. 

I’m a good girl with a good heart.

Had a tough time.  Got a rough start.

But my shadow days are over now.

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I fear no evil, for thou art with me.

~Psalm 23:4

Core Beliefs:  Christ, expression, beauty, kindness

(Even if you don’t like John Mayer or my taste in music, just listen to that song!!!)

Readers: If you are in a dark shadow of any kind,

there just might be light at the end of the tunnel.

Ernest’s Granddaughter, but also so much more :)

Screen shot 2013-08-08 at 10.45.10 AM

My grandfather Ernest Wilkinson was a famous, important man.  President of Brigham Young University from 1951-1971, he put the school on the map.  I could write a book (figuratively speaking of course) about all his accomplishments, but there have already been literal books written about him, plus I’m too lazy.  Shoot me an email if you wanna know more, or even a quick google search will give you some decent info.  ANYWAYS, I love, revere, respect him, and hope to meet him in the after-life (he died before I was born).  I am his grand-daughter…but I am more than that too.   I have my own life to live and my own story to tell.  So do you.
