A quick shpleal

I'm a fun loving college student attending Westminster College in Salt Lake City. I am double majoring in International Business and Finance with a possible minor in Economics. I love to explore and go on adventures whenever I can. I love Utah and the beautiful scenery all around. I also love to travel and explore, especially out of the country.   I plan on graduating college in Fall 2014 and I cannot wait to get a move on with my career, whatever that may be.
However, recently I've made the decision to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  I have made the best decision of my life.  I know that although I am setting aside my ambition to travel and receive my education and continue on with my career, I am doing the right thing.  April couldn’t come soon enough.  I know that I have a lot to learn about being a missionary.  I know that the plans I had must be set aside because this is where I am supposed to be.  I know that the Lord wants me to serve in Japan and bring His light, His love, and His everlasting and restored gospel to the wonderful people there. 
I know that I love this gospel.  I know of its truthfulness.  I know that prayer works, faith can be developed and that the Book Of Mormon is true.  It is most definitely another testament of Jesus Christ.  I have read it so many times and each time I get the same feelings.  I know that the Spirit testifies of its truthfulness and all you have to do is read it with a pure and open heart, “with real intent,” to know if it is true (Moroni 10:4-5).  I know I have - and it has changed my life.
~I know it.  I live it.  I love it.
