I think I need to go plead my case to my Biology Professor and see if he will let me take my final early. My friend just had her friend back out of going with her and it would cost me next to nothing. She really needs my help to help move her daughter out of her apartment.
So today while studying I got a confirmation on my heal condition and the more I studied it the more I have learned that it is probably going to be with me the rest of my life -
so we had better become friends. Funny thing is that I thought I injured it during Zumba a few years ago and now I come to find out it is inherited. From who ? I am not sure. My dad may have had this, but may have thought it was related to his arthritis.
Just a little photo update on the lives of those I love . . . . These are just photo's of the littles. My big boys are not that cooperative. I am going to have to sneak photo's at baseball this week . . .

What a wonderful service we had today on this beautiful Easter morning. Michelle D. gave an amazing talk and quoted the words of one of one of my very favorite primary songs.
A long time ago in a beautiful place, Children were gathered ’round Jesus. He blessed and taught as they felt of His love. Each saw the tears on His face.
The love that He felt for His little ones I know He feels for me. I did not touch Him or sit on His knee, Yet, Jesus is real to me.
I know He lives!
I will follow faithfully.
My heart I give to Him. I know that my Savior loves me.
Now I am here in a beautiful place, Learning the teachings of Jesus. Parents and teachers will help guide the way, Lighting my path ev’ry day.
Wrapped in the arms of my Savior’s love, I feel His gentle touch. Living each day, I will follow His way, Home to my Father above.
I know He lives! I will follow faithfully. My heart I give to Him. I know that my Savior loves me.
He is real to me. No I have never seen him or touched him. But I have felt the spirit. I have felt the spirit when I have studied his words. I know that the peace I feel when I fully live the Gospel of Jesus Christ is greater than any other feeling that I have ever had.
I am just your average mom, who sometime gets so busy with life that I am guilty of neglecting the things that are truly important. I make mistakes, I make alot of mistakes. Each day I am learning and growing. And I am so grateful that each week I can partake of the sacrament and
get a fresh start to a new week.
I feel as though I have always had a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But 8 years ago when I faced the death of my first true love, my dad, I felt a warmth that is indescribable.I know that I was the only person in the room with my dad and yet I know that the room was filled with the spirits of his loved ones who had gone before. They had come to bring him home. And it felt as though they had wrapped a warm blanket around me and filled me with their love.
And I can testify to you that I heard a voice as my dad passed from this life.
It was real. I don't know how else to describe it. But it is the concrete that will cement my testimony until I see my dad again.
And it said "Kristan, the Plan of Salvation is real, the gospel is true, and you will be with your dad again. Families can be forever. Just hold on. It will all be worth it"
I really cannot fully explain the feelings I had on that day. But I do know that on this Easter Sunday I am reflecting on my relationship with my Savior, my older brother Jesus Christ. I am reflecting on the things that I was taught on that day 8 years ago and the progress I have made and the progress I have lacked since.
It is like I need to be reminded daily that the atonement is for everyone.
And each day, even many times a day, I can get a do over.
I can continue to gain peace in this life and be washed clean from those things that weigh me down.
I can get help with my challenges.
Jesus Christ brings hope to our lives. Because of Him, our past does not
dictate our future. We can gain strength to overcome anything. As I taught my little primary kids today, he knows and he loves each and every one of us.
He is risen, and He
guides and directs His church today!

Currently I am at my grandma's house. But we are not here for long. Tomorrow morning we will be getting up and driving to Salt Lake. On Wednesday, my grandma's brother in law, Uncle Bob Tingey passed away. His funeral will be Monday in Salt Lake. My grandma is almost 91 and suffers from Macular Degeneration and is legally blind. She has a really hard time traveling. What a blessing that I am here and can drive her down to her sisters for the services. I am sad that it takes a funeral to see so many family members, but I am thrilled that I am here and can accompany her.
Needless, to say, I have seen so many tender mercies of the Lord in my life and I truly believe that there are no coincidences.
Well my mind has been spinning with lot's of Christmas projects. The list's are long and the funds are low and so it is time to get creative. I love making homemade gifts - I just need to find the time to create. So I am scheduling craft nights with friends and hoping that will help me to get it all done.
Do you see all these chairs ? I think we have officially outgrown the Phoenix Convention Center
It sold out and there were over 4000 women there. Not an empty seat in the house.

This weekend I went with a group of friends from my ward to
and my heart was filled. It was the 10 year anniversary for TOFW and I was actually at the very first one 10 years ago.
Over the years I think I have attended all but 2 and each time I walk away feeling a sense of renewal.
What an amazing weekend it was
one of the best parts was when I was standing in line this morning at the crack of dawn and who do I see but my sweet dear friend Connie that I adore so much. You know those friends that you can go long periods of time without seeing or talking to and the minute you see them it is like your hearts connect. I love this girl.What a sweet reunion and what an amazing weekend we had.
