Hey All!

I've created a new special blog for the mission trip. I'll still be using this blog, but probably not until I get back. So for the time being, go to: imonamissionforgod.blogspot.com. I'm actually on my way to the airport right now! Eek!

On a Mission for God,


Happy Birthday Mommy!!

Today is a very special day! My Mother was born 40 years ago today! Although, I think that she doesn't look a day over 29! :)

See for yourself: 

Mom, I love you with all my heart! You are such a great Mom and Best Friend. Happy 40th birthday!!

On a Mission for God,


I'll Take Semester Grades for 500, Alex.

DISCLAIMER: The above title is pretty dorky, I know. But what can I say? I am a dork. You'll understand once you read the full blog. :)

So, I got my semester grades in! They are as follows:
A - Structures of Math
A - Technology for Teachers
C - Fundamentals of Literature
P - (stands for Pass.) Walking Fitness

Yeah, not the best grades in the world, but not the worst considering my other semesters! I do have to say that I was very proud of myself though! 2 A's! That has to be a record in college for me! It makes me feel like I actually am smart!

You see...I've been stuck in a rut this past semester...Here's why:
I went from a 4.0 in High School and being Valedictorian to a 2.3ish in College. I felt completely down about it, until I got the grades from this semester. I wasn't expecting one A, let alone 2! I CAN DO IT! I'm smart enough to make A's in college, I just have to BELIEVE in myself! I mean, do I think I could win Jeopardy (where title comes into play.) or go to Harvard? NO! But I'm smart enough to do good in college make A's. I haven't lost my intelligence from high school, I still have it. I just needed to be reminded of it!

With all of that being said and now that I've had an epiphany, I wanted to discuss something a little more serious. I'm leaving on my mission trip to Germany in 5 days! 5 days, crazy right?! I'm going to try my best to update my blog with reports while I'm there, but I think e-mail would be easier, so if you want a report while I'm gone, send me your e-mail and I'll send you a report, probably about once a week. That's my goal! Also, please pray for myself and the campaign group as we are over there spreading God's word through song and pray that God uses us to change lives!

On a Mission for God,


Happy Mother's Day Mommy!

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful and "close to" perfect mother! :)
Thank you for all you do for me. I couldn't of asked for a better mother. Thanks for being my best friend!!

I love
Thanks for being a great example for me!

Happy Mother's Day to all the other mothers out there!

On a Mission for God,


Goodbye 2nd year of College!

I finally finished my second year of school today! This semester has been a long and trying one.
I've done good in some classes and done terrible in classes, but that is all part of your college career.
I've gained friendships and I've lost friendships, but as I always say and firmly believe, "Everything happens for a reason".
I've also lost 3 of the best roommates a girl could ask for! I had such a great year living with these girls!
You can probably tell from the picture what great fun we had! There was NEVER a dull moment in our apartment!

There goes a chapter in my life, but I am excited to see what the next chapter brings.

God, take the rest of my year and surprise me!

On a Mission for God,

P.S. I leave for Germany in 11 days!! Eeek!
