With Real Intent

We are promised if we pray, with real intent, we will receive an answer. I can testify this is true...just don't always expect the answer you want to hear ;).

I was commanded recently in a Priesthood blessing to start this blog. Well, not exactly, but after further prayer and inspiration, this is what I know I am supposed to do. I'm not sure why I am supposed to do it though, and quite honestly, I'm not even sure I want to.

To give you an idea of what this blog is, it's a summary of my experiences, and what I've learned from them, what I can gain from them, and most importantly how they have helped me become closer to the Savior, my Savior. Don't worry, I will try my best not to bore you with my day-to-day stuff, because it really is quite boring. It will be more of my life experiences, the big ones. As a warning, there are some not-so-pleasant ones, ones that until this blog, I don't think I've ever verbalized to anyone except my husband. I'm still not sure what I will share or when I will share - but I do know why I will share....because I'm prompted to.

I sincerely pray that this blog can help me overcome some of my fears, insecurities, and short-comings that have derived from these experiences. I also pray that I am not the only person to learn, and benefit, from these experiences. That those who read this blog will strengthen their testimony as I do.

In any case, please feel free to comment and share your own experiences as you feel prompted so we can all grow together.


  1. I love the term "real intent." To me, it means that whatever the answer is, you're willing to change your life for it - even if it isn't the answer you were hoping for :) Thanks for the invite :)

  2. I look forward to learning and growing together. I am grateful that you are so willing to follow the promptings of the Spirit even when you aren't sure why. Thank you.
