We know it. We live it. We love it.

Have you ever been to  
Or maybe you've seen some Mormon Messages on YouTube?  
If not, click on the links and check it out!

Well, my stake at BYU-Idaho is starting their very own campaign to spread the gospel through the internet :) and I have the privelege of giving this project a little kick start!    
It is going to be amazing. 
So far, I've been able to meet with a few students to hear their testimonies and take videos of them.
It is so fun! Just look at how cute they are!! Honestly, everytime I have met with them, it has made me SO incredibly happy. I loving hearing my peers' stories and testimonies!    
It makes me happy to hear them talk about their belief in Jesus Christ.
After only a few minutes with each one of them, I felt like I knew them and already loved them so much.
I know, I are probably pretty jealous of this cool assignment I have! And for good reason!  
What a blessing.
You can watch their stories here.

me time

Ya just doesn't happen very often that photos are taken of ME. It's probably good for me. It reminds me of how totally awkward it is to be the one in front of the camera and not hiding behind it! Anyway, my good friend and mission companion, Bailey took photos of me this past week. We had so much fun doing it! Even though it was soooo cold and Bailey's fingers froze :) It was in preperation for my new website! I'm so excited for it to be ready! But as for right now...I have a lot to learn about CSS, HTML, PHP, XHOSA (ok just kidding on the last one) but for real, making websites is learning a new language.  
I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.

PowerPoint Power

I've been studying a book called slide:ology this semester. 
Ever heard of it? Well it is by Nancy Duarte. She is powerful.  
I've also learned A LOT about PowerPoint in the process. Actually, I have learned that I love it!  
But it must be used with great care.
I probably sound so silly to you. But I honestly am so passionate about PowerPoint right now! It's the best! My Professional Presentations class has taught me so much. It has been an adventure. And, on Thursday, I give my very last presentation! Yay! And it just happens to be about cognitive overload in slide design. I bet you are just dying to see it...huh? :)

If you want to watch Duarte's TED it is! It just might change your life.
