We're Alive

I thought I would update our readers by letting them know, Chase and I are still alive (currently I feel like I'm hanging on by a thread after waking up at 4:50 am the past two days in a row for school), we just are MIA right now due to both of us starting school this week. Once I recover from this week you will be pleased to read posts covering the past month. Some events we have to share are:

*Me running my 10k
*Our Smith family reunion in Texas
*A night camping under the stars
*My kickin classroom that I've spent way too much time decorating for this year

So stay tuned...and pray that we both recover quickly from our first week of school :)

The Priesthood

As a Latter-day Saint, I believe the power of God was restored to the earth in this dispensation on May 15, 1829 as John the Baptist conferred the priesthood upon the prophet Joseph Smith as well as Oliver Cowdery. As a result, I am blessed today to have Chase hold the power of the priesthood, a power that has blessed my life countless times.

Today I feel so grateful for a worthy priesthood holder in my home who is worthy to use his priesthood when needed. August 17, 2010 is a day that will not be forgotten in our home, and my knowledge of the power of God on the earth has been strengthend. May any priesthood holder that reads this (I know male readers of this blog are few) seek to live their lives worthy of the priesthood which you hold. And may any woman who reads this remember to turn to the priesthood for strength.
