Letters to God

I used to think YSA was incredibly lame. How dumb of me. I love it! It's one of the things I most look forward to each week. Last night some buddies and I decided to go over to a friend's house afterwards and my incredibly impressive new friend talked about how cool the spirit is. We both agree that someone with the spirit is 10x more attractive than someone without it. He was telling me about how he prays to Heavenly Father at night and then writes a letter to God. The next morning he reads his letter, prays, and then does his best to answer his own prayers. After doing this for a while he felt like he knew what God was trying to say to him as he prayed and his letters became conversations. Now, it's his favorite.
IT IS AMAZING how good it felt to talk about cool, inspirational, uplifting things like prayer and journaling in my little car for 20 minutes. I love how my new friend completely opened my heart to better understanding the wonderful blessing of the spirit in my life. If it wasn't for YSA we wouldn't be buddies and I wouldn't be trying this new way of communicating with my Father in heaven. So far I really like it. I challenge you to try it too. Lets all be pen pals with our Dad!


  1. Kari! Congrats on your call. I am so excited for you. And that is a cool idea about letters to Heavenly Father. I like it. Also, are you still in town? I can't tell from your blog. But I now have a working camera (finally) and wanted to do some pics...let me know.


  2. Thanks Erika! Yes, I am still home and I would love to do a shoot! I work for my dad during the day so either an evening shoot or a Saturday thing would be best for me. I'll be out of town next weekend and the weekend of the 24th (weddings) but other than that I am home till October!
