Dear Friends and Family,

Andrea, my friend, and I bumped into each other a few weeks ago. She and her family are working towards adopting a young girl from Haiti. It is an amazing story click here to read! As Andrea shared with me the chain of events to how this all came to be--we both were relishing in the tender mercies of God! God is the one who has been guiding Andrea's family to adopt Kethia and the things He has already done in preparation--have been nothing short of a lot of miracles!

For this month only - ANY comments posted on the SixSeeds CLICK HERE website--the site will donate $2 dollars to Kethia's adoption. That is awesome!! SOOOO if you will just take a min to post an encouraging word to Andrea's family, you will be the means of "doing much good"(D&C 6:8)!

Read this quote last night-- AMAZINGLY PROFOUND and true!
"No matter how difficult something you or a loved one faces, it should not take over your life and be the center of all your interest. Challenges are growth experiences, temporary scenes to be played out on the background of a pleasant life" --Richard G. Scott
Love you all!

The church is true! Jesus is the Christ! We can go "boldly" before the throne in mighty prayer (Hebrews 4:16), for our Heavenly Father hears every sincere prayer (Moroni 10:4).

Today the spirit world was privileged to receive fully one choice daughter of God. A woman of great faith, kindness, service, humor, fun, and love. An aunt that would let me make no bake cookies every week for months with her kids and when driving to a church to go sing, she let me pull over at least seven different times to shoot the eagle in the passing tree. Never mind that it was freezing outside. And never mind I made she and I late for the little program we were apart of. She just laughed at how exited I was to see an eagle. A woman that loved deeply and didn't let the world stress her out. Today the spirit world received Becky Cloward. An amazing wife/lover. A wonderful mother of four kids. I surely don't understand God's ways for they are not my own. But even in the Dark--God has a plan.

Oh you lucky spirit world... You just received our angel.
Love you Beck. Love you.

I have a habit of singing a hymn all the way through before saying my morning or night prayers. Today was "Rejoice, the Lord is King". In such a real personal way, this spoke to me and I wept. Lift up my head, Lift up my heart, and REJOICE. Today I am rejoicing in family ties. For good Aunts and Uncles in my life. For the gospel, for Jesus Christ and his never failing love--for me.

I went to go date the top of my hymn book to symbolize that the song was an answer to prayer... and then I looked at my watch. Today is 11.1.10. Exactly 7 years ago I was in the temple Timp Temple--taking out my endowments. I always try to go to the temple on my anniversary--but this week will have to wait until tomorrow morning.

... My heart is full. My head is lifted. And I AM rejoicing in MY King. Whatever God wants, His will be done.

But I do believe in miraculous miracles.
