"Life is so crazy and unpredictable. Kinda nerve racking but exciting. The important thing is to be humble, to try to follow Heavenly Father's will, to use my agency wisely. Life only happens once and I need to remember to enjoy every minute of it! To be positive."

Hey Eden,
Thank you so much for coming to my young women's tonight. I was deeply touched and I thank you for sharing Merin with us. I've always known that journals are important, but now I have an even better understanding. My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your family, and I think that your photography is just breathtaking.
