100 and counting...

So here it is...my 100th post! I can't believe I've had 100 things to post about. Really, is my life honestly that interesting? I'm sure the answer to that is no, but it's been nice to be able to share some things about me and my family.

I've put off posting for a few days because I felt like I needed something big for the big 100. Remember how you always used to celebrate the 100th day of school in elementary? Well, I needed something big like that.

Then I thought I should write about something I never have before on here. It's big in it's own way, but something pretty simple too. So here it is...my testimony.

I am so thankful for my Heavenly Father. It's such a blessing in my life to know that He is there for me. I can't imagine a life where I didn't have some sort of knowledge about where I came from and where I will be going. I've been blessed to have been born a memeber of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints, and I know I have taken that for granted. I know I don't always make the right choices or the best decisions, but I know that my Heavenly Father will always love me and that He has given me the opportunity to repent and He will forgive. I know my savior, Jesus Christ, died for me. I know that He loved me personally enough to do that for me and I know that I need to live my life worthy of what He has given me. I know we have a Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, here on the earth today and that he truly lives and guides us by the Spirit. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and that it is a true witness of Jesus Christ. I love the temple and the blessings I receive from having been endowed and married there. I'm so thankful that I can have an eternal family. I know that the gospel is true.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the Savior.

Janelle, you overwhelm me. I am so lucky to have you as a daughter. Thank you for sharing your testimony. If I accomplish nothing else in this mortal world, I am at least proud that I had a hand in your development (assisted by many others of course). You make me so proud! As I have said before --- YOU ARE MY IDOL!! I am always learning from you! I LOVE YOU!
