The start of the new school year

           I would like to blog about how Heavenly Father brings you peace and happiness at school.
 Well its that time of year again, where school is starting back up. I was pretty excited for this school year to start until I actually got to school, and then it hit me that this year was going to be pretty tough. Junior year is the year that usually gets the most homework. Just hearing people say that, made me discouraged. I thought, there is no way I am going to be able to get though this year! But, as I was reading my scriptures one night, I had this peaceful feeling that this year is going to be okay and that He will be here to help and guide me though the year!
  The one wonderful part about school starting, is that I get to go to seminary!! This year in seminary we are learning about the Book of Mormon!! I can't express how excited I am for this year in seminary!! For those that don't know what seminary is, its a class that our church has and for most people, seminary is in the morning. Its a class that helps us strengthen our understanding of the scriptures! I look forward to seminary everyday, even if it is early in the morning! Seminary brings the spirit with you and will stay with you the whole day. The first few days of school, we didn't have seminary and I realized how different it was not going to seminary those mornings! Seminary has made a difference in my life and has helped strengthen my relationship with Heavenly Father.
  I would like for just a minute, to talk about the blessings of seminary. Seminary requires you to sacrifice something! For most, its an hour of sleep. But, the blessings that you receive by going to seminary, is worth loosing sleep! Some may think that you are alone in going to seminary, but know that you are not alone! There are tons of people around the world going to seminary! Don't be discouraged feeling that you may be the only one! I can't express how important seminary is and how much it will bless your life if you go! In Matthew 6:33 it says, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." I know that as I have put the the Lord first, he has blessed me by making sure that I feel well rested especially during show choir season and helps me find time to do homework! That's not even close to what I have been blessed with by going to seminary, but those are a few!
  I'm hoping that seminary will help make this year go well! I'm excited to see where this year takes me and the things that we have the opportunity to learn in seminary! I would like to bear my testimony that I know that this is the true church! I know that if I go to seminary, he will bless and strengthen me in the gospel and especially in the scriptures! I'm so grateful for my family and all they help me with! I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and all that he has helped me with! I know that He will always be there and will never be alone!
