I Want To Get To Know You

I have been completely obsessed with reading Biographies!!
Usually I am a Christian Fiction kind of gal,
But I think I've actually read every book in that category,
Come oooooooooon,
Everyone loves those sappy love stories where John saves Katie from a near death experience,
And then they get married and live happily ever after!!
(p.s sappy is my middle name, LOVE that kind of stuff!)

So as I have been diligently searching for a
Good book to read,
I have come across so many I would love
To share with all of you:)
Look down at your hands!!
Make sure you see spare time all over them,
Because you wont be able to put these books down!!
Little Green Apples:)
This first book was written by a wonderful
Lady in my ward!
This story is of her son Justin,
Who battled Evan's Syndrome throughout his life.
This book truly shows the tangible evidence of God's love for us:)
Heaven Is Here:)
This book has been very popular ever since it came out,
And it's actually my second time reading it,
And defiantly not my last!
Stephanie Nielson writes about an airplane crash her husband and her were in,
And leaves you with an incredible message of hope, joy, and a new perspective on life!
If you want to read a book about a truly amazing woman,
This Biography of Camilla Kimball should be at the
Top of your list!
There are so many wonderful women in the LDS Church
That we can turn to, to learn from!
The Burning Within:)
Another story from a woman who was in a
Fatal place crash.
Sometimes these books are so hard to read,
But the message you are left with is lasting and unforgettable!

So those are some of my current favorites:)
As Fall is approaching,
I hope you all can find a good book to curl up with:)

Stay Classy;)

I'm a Homemaker

Sam and I have been gone from our
Apartment for the last little bit,
And I have missed our tiny hole in the wall.
As we have taken the time to dress this little apartment with pictures and things that say
"Family" all over the walls,
This little place has slowly come to feel like home:)

When Sam and I were first married,
I tried out a new recipe that I had loved
Devouring as a child!
My Mom gave me the goods,
And I worked hard to prepare a top-notch dinner
For Sam and I.
When I finished,
And took the first bite of that delicious casserole,
I was pleased:)
I later messaged my Mom a picture of dinner and told her how delish the feast had been,
And how excited I was that I could actually cook something besides a frozen burrito!
My Mom responded back,
"I knew you had it in you all along,
Maybe you just needed your own kitchen to start creating."

I have almost been married for eight months now,
And I can truly say that I have enjoyed every second more than I thought possible:)
I have enjoyed diving into this new role people call,
A Homemaker:)
I am excited for the dreams I am pursuing,
And for the college degree I will soon hold in my hands,
But nothing will ever top the happiness of being a homemaker brings to me:)

Cooking in our small kitchen,
Doing the endless loads of laundry,
Cleaning and tiding up the apartment,
Anticipating Sam's arrival through the door,
And dreaming endlessly of the day babies will allow us to expand what that word, 
Truly means as it hangs on our walls,
Is what I live for and strive for each and every day:)

I love being a wife.
A homemaker.
I love that this is the role I get to indulge in:)
I am happy to be Chelsie Cannon,
And to call Sam my Lover:)
