I love thee, Lord; My heart is full. I'll walk thy chosen way.

I feel a constant need to be needed in a world where I have the hardest time asking for help. That might not make sense to anyone but me, but that's okay. The hardest part about life for me is accepting things I can't change. There is a line in my favorite hymn that says, "Silently we pray for courage to accept thy will, to listen and obey." I pray on a daily basis for courage to accept Gods will for my life. I pray to know the path I should be on and let myself go and let Him take control. This past Sunday in church one of the lessons was on letting Heavenly Father have control over our lives and that we should be okay when things don't work out the way we want them to. Heavenly Father has a plan for my life and he has a plan for your life. He knows the greatest path for our lives and He loves us enough to guide us in all that we do. He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die for us so we would never be alone. Christ walked his path completely and utterly alone. He was mocked and taunted and he suffered for us on the cross so we would never have to be alone. Christ will always know what we are going through. He is a constant friend and He is always there. It is up to us to let ourselves become lost in the greatness of the path of life and to let Heavenly Father lead and guide us on this journey. Everyone is at a different point in life, no two people are the same. I know with a surety that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each of us personally. Life is a blessing and a hard journey we are lucky enough to be on. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to know Christ and to have him in my life. "I love thee, Lord; My heart is full. I'll walk thy chosen way."

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…

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …
