i'm a mormon

every april & october my church holds a special conference where we get to be taught & counseled by the prophet and general authorities of our church.

i look forward to this all year.
this spring's sessions were uplifting & amazing.
{*they always are.}
take a peek here if you are interested in watching/listening to any of the talks.

my fam also had a combined birthday party for my dad & chloe this weekend.

as a birthday gift for my dad, i compiled: the dixon siblings' & our spouses' + a few of the grand-kids' testimonies & put them into a {very} simple scrapbook.

the pages of this book are special & not mine to share, except this one:

i have such a desire to share these things that i know as truth.
*shouting from the rooftops-style.
i like to share it because it is truly the greatest source of my happiness.

i choose to be, and am humbled by the blessing it is to be, a mormon.

Oh Angie ~ I love this! I love the gift and I love your testimony. I wish I had been a fly on the wall to see your Dad's reaction when opened it. Everyone can purchase a shirt or a gift card, and those are nice; but to share your talents and your sweet testimony with someone ~ well that is the most priceless and wonderful gift of all!
