blogging!

For Enrichment last night, Michelle Gardner taught us how to blog. I learned a lot even though I already blog. There are so many things about blogging I didn't know how to do and she taught us how to create your own template and back drop! I'm excited to spend countless hours trying to figure all this out! But Michelle also gave us a quote that I really liked - 

At a BYU Hawaii Graduation, Elder Ballard encouraged students to "consider sharing their views on blogs, responding to online news reports and using the "new media" in other ways, share their views through blogging." Because "we cannot stand on the sidelines while others, including our critics, attempt to define what the Church teaches," he said. He went on to say that "perceptions of the Church are established one conversation at a time..." and that Church leaders "can’t answer every question, satisfy every inquiry and respond to every inaccuracy that exists," due to recent media coverage and inquiries. Just remember, “there is no need to become defensive or belligerent,” in our blogging.
I really liked that we can use our blogging for good, besides sharing our life experiences with those we don't see or talk to all the time, we can also share our testimony and share the gospel of Jesus Christ and use our blog to do good.

I love this quote and especially love your support in our adoption process. it is so hard to let go of your natural man and trust heavenly father! we know this little girl could come to our home and be loved, loved, loved! what we don't know is what the birthmom will do. we think she will do what she has said but... who knows. it is so exciting and as you know, very frustrating as you know as well. you can't really plan anything, you can't really do anything and in all you just have to keep the faith and hope.
thank you for your prayers... i wish you could help me with my blog. i don't know how to do anything and wish i did...
