i have had a ton on my mind lately: it has to do with the future. i whole-heartedly believe that the past should be in the past & we should not dwell. as well as we not look too far into the future. however, gazing toward the future every once in awhile is important to me.i was talking to my friend natalie the other day & couldn't help but think a little bit about how evil the world is becoming. after the boston marathon bombing, i couldn't help but think..."this world is just getting worse." think about it. there is something tragic that happens every few months. bad things have always happened. but nothing like this! there is no doubt good in the world. i mean, you can take a gander at all the good around you, and there's countless acts of kindness. however, the world is still getting worse. more & more are falling. 

a few days ago, mr. schroeder were talking about how the future is going to be hard. really hard. for many many reasons. i truly believe that so many things are going to be happening & that everyone, everyone, must be ready. i think we need to prepare ourselves for the worse. we must pray. we must develop a solid testimony & faith of jesus christ. preparation is key. 


it makes me grateful for the opportunity to be where i am at in my life! i am grateful for supportive parents.  & as crazy happenings keep coming up in my life, i am so blessed & thankful to know that i have mr. schroeder to guide me when my faith could be shaken a little bit. i suppose it's just a reminder that the times are comin. & we must be prepared for the worse.

  1. I agree! I just got called to Young Womens, and this is their theme for the year, so I've been thinking a lot about this too. Couldn't be more important to stand in holy places :)

  2. I agree. Brandon and I were talking about having kids and we are really hesitant because I don't want to bring a kid into this crap. I know that sounds dramatic but the world scares me now.. It's only going to get worse I can't imagine how it will be raising a kid as it goes down hill. People are so detached and have sick minds. It's scarey but at least we have our faith in knowing The Lord will protect us in his way. Still scary :(

  3. I like this. I was actually thinking this morning while I was getting ready for work and Joe was listening to his talk radio, that the world in the future is going to be a scary place, and I'm scared for my future children, but I REALLY like what you have to say!

  4. My husband and I were talking about how much we worry for our kids. Especially after going through our OWN trials, we would never wish our kids to go through anything like that! You are right though....our testimony is key. Thanks for sharing

  5. This is great. Something I have thought about for awhile myself. If you google "Is the world getting worse or better," though, you will find some really thought provoking answers! That may give you a little more optimism about the future, too :)
