Good Morning, Everyone!

I recently set this photo our trainer captured, as my screensaver. It’s my favorite🩷

Last week, my family and I had the incredible opportunity to spend nine days barrel racing in Texas. It was an entirely new experience for us and turned out to be one of the best experiences we've ever had! On the day we left to come home, emotions ran high, and tears were shed by all of us. The girls, especially as it was their first time in Texas and they LOVED it there! For my middle daughter, this entire trip was like a dream come true.

But there's a reason I'm sharing this with you today.

As amazing as the trip was, there were many new and challenging experiences that were outside my girls' comfort zone. These experiences challenged them, and I remember Josh saying something that really hit me.

"Girls, challenging moments are a part of life, and it's my duty to guide you through them, help you learn, and encourage your growth. Similar to school, I cannot keep you stuck in 2nd grade, 6th grade, or 8th grade forever. You need to move forward and continue to learn."

This makes me so tearful, because I don’t do well when things get hard. But it comforted me and reminded me of how our Heavenly Father wants the same for us. He doesn't want us to stay in the same place spiritually; He wants us to learn, grow, and become better versions of ourselves.

So when you look at this picture, I know not everyone is facing barrels in an arena, but let it be a reminder that each day is like stepping into an arena where we have opportunities to learn, overcome obstacles, and come out stronger.

And just like I tell my girls before their run, I want to say to you: "You've got this! I believe in you!"

And remember, every challenge you face today is a chance to grow stronger and wiser. Embrace those hurdles like barrels in your arena, knowing that each one you conquer brings you closer to becoming the person you're meant to be. So go out there, face the day with courage, and keep pushing forward. You're capable of amazing things!😘
