It's fun to reminisce about holiday traditions from our childhood, isn't it? But if you're like me, while you might look back on all of those traditions fondly as an adult, there were probably some that you looked forward to much more than others as a young child. I'll put it this way: the 8-year-old version of Ansen was way more excited about getting presents and candy than going to church or reading Bible passages. My mindset was to get through the boring stuff so that we could get to the good stuff. I'm pretty sure I wasn't alone.
One Easter tradition is getting new clothes to wear. This year my Easter outfit has a bit of a different meaning. I bought a new shirt last week. I know, buying a new shirt is not really blog-worthy; but sometimes it is. You see, six months ago I wouldn’t have bought the shirt. Why? Because “they” might not like it. Who are “they”? Glad you asked.

My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years this year. My husband has a daughter from a previous marriage and we now have a 5 month old little boy! These two gifts from God are our pride and joy. Right before we got married, the mother of his daughter left and gave full custody over to my husband. This was a trial for our marriage, as his daughter was not used to her dad having another woman in his life and her mom had just left her. God helped us stand strong even in the most trying times, when we didn't think our marriage was going to make it. There were some really hard days that I would turn on KLRC and the perfect song would come on. It reminded me that God is with us and we need to be strong and know if we give everything to Him then He will take care of us. Now we have a much stronger marriage, his daughter has accepted me, and she tells me she loves me and her little brother.

I have always wanted to do mission work and hopefully this is just the start of God's Mission Work for me. This May I have been blessed with the opportunity to go to Haiti for two weeks. Please pray that God will provide me with sponsors and Pray Warriors. Also I ask for you to pray for open hearts for the people we come into contact with, pray our medical clinics and water projects go well, and that we have a safe trip. Also I am a senior and have some college choices to make. I've had dreams to attend a Private Christian College for years now, however financially it seems impossible. But I know God will continue to open doors for me, if that be His will. Thank you. :)
