It has been a week since I wrote last and I have to admit, I am a tad bothered that no one has commented. Not that I write to get comments, nor is this the reason I started blogging but I have become used to the friendly banter! So where is everyone?!!!

I just finished the 10th book of the "tennis shoes among the Nephites". I love this series! I have read all of Chris Heimerdinger's books. I feel so inspired to study the Book of Mormon and it makes me excited about it. The first book was the one that got me excited about the B of M before my mission. Some people may think they are silly or for kids but I guess I just don't want to grow up.

I am running 25 minutes straight now. It is a first in my life. For those of you who love to run who have ever had to start over or even start at all, you know how much this means to me. My goal at this point is to get to 30 minutes without dying. Thank heavens for my Birks. It is because of these shoes I can run. I wish Heavenly Father would have mentioned this about 3 years ago but then I wouldn't have learned the patience and perserverence or level of commitment that I have learned. It is a wonderful thing to add to my testimony experiences.

I hear I have been tagged my Jewel so I will go there now and say hi to her! See you all later!
