I just came home to a very fun surprise. On our doorstep, I found an envelope¬†containing this month’s New Era (the LDS magazine for youth) and MY ARTICLE IS IN IT! About a year ago the magazine let me know they might publish the article, but since it hadn’t happened yet I figured it wouldn’t happen at all. Considering some of the negative feelings I had about myself earlier today, I suspect Heavenly Father wanted to teach me a lesson.

All I can say is…goosebumps!

Read the article here.

    Angelica-This is a wonderful read-so succintly said. How exciting for you!

  5. Congratulations, girl! That is awesome!!! I interned at the Ensign and read tons of reader submissions. Most were relatively short personal narratives, but this is a full-on, dive-into-the-scriptures article! That’s amazing! Congrats!

      That’s right, Ensign intern! They mostly ask for personal stories, so I was surprised (and happy!) they accepted mine.
