make old things new

so school has started, again.
And what a long first week of school!
(thank goodness for holidays to make the second week shorter)
But I feel good about this year! It's a brand new start.

new classes
new professors
new subjects
new challenges
new growth
new people
new campus route
new routine
new ward
new calling
new bishopric
new goals

It's going to be nice. Looking back on my blog, I remember talking about how much I dreaded change. I won't lie, I still have a hard time with it but now have a better understanding that all change is good if you have that attitude. God truly knows that is best for me and that's why he puts change into my life. His timing is the right timing. I'm glad I finally have my eyes open to see Him working in my life.

I feel so good about life! I am confident and so incredibly happy. I know it is because of the church in my life. I would be lying if I said that I didn't have a foundation of Christ. That is why I am so happy. He makes me happy. And through Christ and Heavenly Father, I am able to receive so many blessings when I obey them. Blessings of wisdom, friends, talents, happiness, light. I owe everything to them.

I actually got the calling of Relief Society 1st Counselor and couldn't me more nervous. Although I am really excited, I also felt very inadequate. Going into a whole new ward with new members and people would be a big wall if I didn't have the knowledge to rely on my Savior for help. Luckily I learned how to do that really fast this summer through EFY. I'm grateful for every experience, good and bad, that I have had to lead me up to this point in my life. They have shaped me into the person and I am and will continue to do so the rest of my time here on earth.
I love my Savior and Heavenly Father.
