You're why I do what I do

Our relationships filter the way in which we see the world. Enhancing our relationships will enhance our lives.

We can learn from every single one of life's moments and relationships

Life is made up of a collection of moments. These moments can teach us if we allow them to. More specifically they can teach us to be happier and to fill the full measure of our creation.

My life has been a collection of moments. Moments that continue to build my faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ and continues to teach me and those around me. Moments that have meaning because of the relationships I’ve developed with them.

...by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.

Alma 37:6

Stepping out of what's comfortable

For a larger part of my life I would shy away from attention or speaking up. But time and time again, in the moments I’d choose to open up, I’d be encouragement to stop hiding and share the valuable perspectives I had on life with others instead of just keeping it to myself.

As I continued to push myself out of my comfort zones I developed a love for exploring and trying new things. I built a successful handmade business, built an amazing marriage, formed new relationships, increased my faith in Christ, increased my confidence, and developed a passion to share what I was learning with others.

Even when it’s scary, I continue to push myself to step out of what’s comfortable; to be more outspoken and speak out. My courage stems from the realization that my voice is not my own. It does not belong to me, but to those I can inspire, teach, and, motivate.

"Adam fell that men might be; and men are that they may have joy."-2 Nephi 2:25

I’ve made it my mission to seek out ways to more fully experience joy and understand what too often holds us back.
 
Reflecting on life’s moments and the relationships we form, I’m passionate about finding and experiencing greater joy in life and helping others overcome the excuses and limiting beliefs that may be stopping them from doing the same.
 
As I follow my curiosity and allow new experiences to teach me, I blog and make videos each week about those experiences and what they can teach us about living a life of joy.
