He's All Grown Up

Today,  my brother went off to college for his freshmen year. 
It makes me feel old, first of all, but it also makes me feel proud. 

He has been my buddy for as long as I can remember and I am so glad about the man he is becoming. 

Bryant, thank you for making such good decisions in your life. I am SO excited for you to go to Idaho. I have no doubt that you will have the time of your life! Meet lots of people, read lots of scriptures, and make sure to call mom. I know you will do great things, and I am excited to see what those things will be. I love you, brother!

It's A New Year & A New Me!

Yesterday, August 27, 2012, marked the beginning of a new school year on the BYU campus. No longer a freshman, I find myself sitting in the same buildings and the same classrooms as a sophomore. Though surely the the differences between the freshmen and sophomores on campus cannot be that great; this school year feels like a new chapter in my life. 

Stepping out of the Provo "bubble" for the summer made me realize how much I really missed the spirit at BYU. I am glad to be back in a place where even in the classrooms, prayers are said, scriptures are quoted, and happiness is found in abundance. 

Today I am grateful to attend a university that not only teaches things of the world, but things of a spiritual nature; a university where every day students are reminded of their divine heritage, that they are sons and daughters of a loving God.
