To be completely honest I never had the desire to serve a mission. From the Time I was in 6 grade I wanted to go to College study Nursing, work in a Hospital, find "Prince Charming", and then start my own family. Those were my Plans and as we all know if you want to hear God laugh just tell him your plans. So as a Sophomore in High School I was able to get my patriarchal blessing. I was told during that blessing that I would have the opportunity to serve and would serve a mission. I remember thinking No Heavenly Father I don't want to serve a mission.
That is why I'm I came on my mission to share this amazing Gospel with others so they could experience the Joy and Happiness the gospel brings.
