From the Beginning

Howdy ya’ll!  I’m the Revival Girl!

How many times have I thought I want more?  I want more, I know I do, but these thoughts having been slowly changing over time.

There was a time I wanted more stuff, now my home is cluttered from wall to way in organized chaos.

There was a time I wanted a partner in life who shared my faith, and after prayer and adventure, my best friend came into my life and not only has he brought the priesthood into our home, he’s my husband.

There was a time I wanted money.  We all know that would be nice, but we can make due with what we have and learn to save more and spend smarter.  Though I wouldn’t begrudge a raise in my future if one came my way after nearly eight years of hard work in the video game industry.  But, in the long run, i don’t necessarily need it, neither does my amazing husband.

There was a time that all i wanted was to be on my own, but well, being alone and having a husband and our menagerie of puppies and kitties does not go hand in hand.

But still, despite the blessings in my life, I still want more.  While wanting children will be answered in time, my other want is to be closer to Heavenly Father.

I think it sounds a bit crazy as we are all as close to or as far away from our Heavenly Father as we allow ourselves to be and at the same time, becoming closer takes a lot of work.

This is my journey.  My approach, and my adventure to becoming closer to God himself.  It is a part of me and I am placing it before you, unchanged.  Even though it may leave me feeling naked before you, it’s all of me.

I hope that you enjoy this journey and who knows, you may even come along for the ride.

  1. Nothing could be a better desire to have than to be closer to our Heavenly Father. Imagine how different our world would be if instead of chasing after worldly desires we chased after the Lord? Be blessed today and find a way to bless someone else.

  2. This is Bonnie from hamiltonhoneybees.wordpress.com. I’m very flattered that you’re following me. I hope I can post something of worth to you. I’m a Mormon grandma. I think you too are Mormon. I hope I can be of assistance to you.

    1. Hi Bonnie! I am a Mormon! 🙂 I just finished moving all my friends from my old blog on WordPress to this new one and I’m happy to see you again! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

  3. Hey Thanks for finding me. I’m super excited to follow your blog. 🙂 You have a fun writing style. 🙂 I love finding fellow mormon bloggers. 🙂

  4. Hey! I don’t know if you’re interested – but I couldn’t find your blog from your “like” on mine. Since you don’t have your blog listed on your gravatar profile, no one will be able to find it either. 😦 So, just wanted to let you know that if you were interested. Thanks for the like – I’m going to follow you. I don’t think I have anyone I follow who writes who is LDS too!

  5. Hello, Revival girl,

    I’m so glad you found my blog today. I love how you communicate so openly about your spiritual yearning. Pursuing the Lord is time well spent.

    Blessings to you.

    Lori 🙂
