a little pick me up

my sister jen is serving a mission in argentina. we miss her, a lot.
i love reading her emails. she is hilarious. sometime i will post some of her best quotes.

she had a rough time this past week, but she shared something i thought was worth passing along. when she was struggling, she opened up her mtc journal and remembered when elder holland had come and spoken to them. this is what he said:

"This is God's eternal truth. I have not given my life to a fairy tale. This is not a cunningly devised fable! This is God's eternal truth."

because out of everything, that's all that matters. sometimes we doubt. sad things happen, hard things happen, and most of the time we have no clue what's going to happen. but there is a plan for us. and it is real. and it makes everything worth it.
