These are a few of my Favorite Things

Well a lot has happened (kind of) since my last post. But that is not what today's post is about! I realized on this lovely Sunday some odd things that just so happen to be my favorite. So here we go.
1. I loved Church this Sunday. The funny thing is, I should always love church on Sundays. Anyone can tell you, no matter what religion, there are just some Sundays that are much more amazing than others. Today, was one of those days. The main meeting was beautiful, and all of my classes seemed to have more meaning to me. I played piano today, and I did well. I get really nervous most of the times I have to play. My legs will be shaking, and my hands will cramp up really bad, but I somehow always manage to make it through. I love going to church, because there I am surrounded by people that I know for a FACT will ALWAYS love me, no matter what.
2. The CrockPot is a fantastic thing. I love coming home on Sundays to that sweet aroma of a nice roast that is almost cooked to perfection. My mouth waters instantly.
3. Championship Bean Dip, I love you dearly. If you have never had some of my mothers bean dip, you have NOT lived. It is the most yummy dip you will ever taste, and I thank Superbowl Sunday for allowing me to partake of this most amazing food.

So there is a little tid-bit of some of my FAVORITE things. Until next time, always remember, NEVER lose the DESIRE to LOVE, even when it seems IMPOSSIBLE (:


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day! I still get nervous playing and I play every week for 2 hours straight in primary. The crock pot is my best friend, as is bean dip. Happy Super Bowl day. :)

  2. You were awesome on the piano! I am so proud of you and your many talents- And you know you will always be my BFF : >

BYU. Westmore. Anxiety. Family. Trusting. MY 5 YEARS IN UTAH.

For me, it’s usually night when all the feels start hitting and I get all sorts of nostalgic. August brings so many challenges for me in many ways. Once August hits it means summer is finally coming to an end and even though I’m usually ready to go back to work, the stress starts to creep in. Going into my 4th year seems bizarre. I don’t feel as if I’m a seasoned teacher, but since I’m not worried about the first day of school I think that says something. August also is the month where 5 years ago I took a big risk and moved to Utah. I left the comfort of my sweet southern home and stepped out on my own. Since 5 years seems like an eternity and a second all at the same time, I decided to write down the 5 most important things that have happened to me since I moved here.
1.Attending and graduating from BYU. I loved my time at BYU. I ran through my experience and I don’t regret that at all. I always knew the college lifestyle wasn’t for me, so getting through it fast was a blessing. I …

A Letter to Asher Rae.

Baby Asher,
Your momma is currently in labor and in a few hours you'll make your grand debut into this world. From the moment I knew you were coming I was in shock and how much my heart could grow. I work with sweet children all day and I love them so much. The love I already have for you is so different. You'll be the first grandchild of my parents, and you'll be my first ever niece. You're coming into a world that is incredibly hard and difficult. With your amazing parents in your life you'll be taught how to be strong and to be valiant in all circumstances. Your dad, my brother, is an excellent human being. He is dedicated, he is a dreamer, he is a hard worker, and he will be the most amazing father. Your mom is so beautiful. She is loving, she is patient, and she loves your dad so much. Your grandma, my mom, is SO excited for you. She will love you and spoil you, but she will also help you when things get hard. Your Grandma Forsyth is a tough woman. The toughes…

The Prayer of a Teacher After the First Day of School.

I cried today. Lately, I haven't been much of a cryer. My mom will tell you that it takes a lot to make me cry. Today I cried. I cried because today was the first day of school. I am exhausted. My feet hurt, my face is greasy, and I'm not sure how I smell. I smiled as 22 brand new students walked into classroom 120. I felt the high energy of the kids who wished summer was at least another month longer. I tried to explain the rules and procedures but forgot how difficult that can be. This year will prove to be the biggest challenge in my teaching career. I miss my kids from last year, still. I hope the impact they've left on me will never change. Today, I write down a prayer for myself and for all my teachers out there. I pray that I will make a difference. I pray that tomorrow when the routines begin that I will give direction with clarity. I pray that I will find something to love about each one of my students. I pray I don't forget the good kids while I'm focusin…
