Hey Beautiful souls :) Tarl and I are moved into our new place this weekend. We're so very thankful to each and every one of you for your love, prayers, support, help, meals, etc.
We celebrated our 3-year wedding anniversary this month * Eternity to go ;) and so excited, feel like newlyweds again. Starting from scratch to get all the things for our home. EXCITING. Utah is amazing and always had a place in my heart. We're in Southern Utah and even though it's hot, it's a dry heat from all the deserts but all the mountains and beautiful scenery that circles around us is INCREDIBLE. We're so blessed and loved.
We love the people here too. Our church family, our own family and friends, and neighbors, etc... I personally have never found a better place for my health, and life than here. Tarl and I are so incredibly happy and blessed.
As we get settled in I will post when I can, As you know Tarl works from home and is very busy with work and his creative projects and books. I am doing my last 2 semesters online for my Family Science degree and working with all my specialists for my health. Along with working on the Jackie Inspires Blog and Shop.. Which has been an amazing dream of mine * Those who are new can catch up with all our blog posts from the beginning.
So, It's going to be busy especially since we just moved in but you know it's such a BEAUTIFUL BLESSING. Each day has its own trials and challenges but always looking at the blessings in all circumstances. Yes, it's stressful and my body lets me know to hahha but I am so blessed to have the energy I have now and keeping food down and so much more.
Tarl and I are so strong in our testimonies of Christ. We were just talking about how angels carried us 1400 miles in 4 days during the middle of May 2023 when I was very sick and had to stop school. We're near family and friends. We have been given so many blessings and know that it is because of our faith in our savior Jesus Christ. That no matter how hard the trials may be from financial, spiritual, emotional or physical, HE LIVES> Angels on both sides of the veil surround each of us and blesses us.
Why we love blessing others in any way we can. No matter how we struggle we can always bless someone else in so many different ways. I am truly truly happy. We love this stage of our life and starting fresh with picking out dishes to furniture etc. We know that everything will come together, just as our love did 3 years ago. Just as jobs, health, finances, life, growth in our savior and so much more.
Enjoy this week. Enjoy each day. Brighten someone's day even if you're having such a bad day. Don't give up hope. Learn and grow and build your talents and passions because that is what can help you build strength to overcome. GOD IS GOOD.
Happy Move-In Weekend to us <3 God bless you all. It will be a busy time but life still goes on and we're so happy for all the memories being made.
Lots of love. Talk soon :) Remember YOU'RE ENOUGH. YOU'RE CAPABLE. YOU MATTER. BE VULNERABLE. LET YOURSELF FEEL. PRAY. CRY. ASK FOR HELP. YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH HARDER. DON'T OVERLOOK YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH MATTERS. LEARN TO LIVE AND SEE THE BLESSINGS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.
I promise you that all things will come together but it's in GOD's TIME. He knows your heart. Please believe and don't give up. Surround yourself with those that support and love you.
Keep shining ~ Be Inspired ~

GRADUATION CEREMONY :
I'm so excited that my ''name '' will be called on May 4th, 2023, at the graduation ceremony (via teams). I have to finish this semester, though, hahaha ...
Thank you to everyone who continues to support me in this dream. Sooooooooo close. It's hard, especially with all that is going on with my health, but I can do hard things.

GRADUATION 2023- Due to my annoying health issues, I will not be attending my graduation celebration & walking on May 4th, 2023, at UVU(out of state) for my family science degree.
Yes, this is very disappointing as I never experienced this from Higschool, Byu-pathway and now College.. I'm a free and creative soul, so I love to experience and grow.
Life goes on. I'm accepting & validating my feelings but also recognizing how BAD -ASS (LOL)
I am to keep going and working on finishing my final semester in Summer 2023. Then , I'll get my bachelor's degree in family science mailed to me in August 2023.
June is my 40th birthday, and along that and my plan for celebrating and achieving my degree, Tarl and I and whoever else can celebrate when I am more stable with health and finances. I am in hopes of the beach & Disney World Mermaid 🧜♀️ party. 🤣🎉 Don't judge, we all have our dreams, I am just one stubborn, funny, resilient, strong, dedicated woman who keeps fighting and overcoming ( even when things are so hard and unbearable)
One of my sisters made me a graduation gift and created a beautiful announcement to help celebrate and a beautiful reminder. This is a blessing, and I'm working hard to finish. I am in hopes my journey in all the feels brings you hope, strength, and inspiration in your own life .
Thank you to all of you in your constant love, support, donations, prayers, and kindness as we continue to overcome challenges. As always, look for the gofundme or Blog for more thorough updates as they come.
Thank you to my love of my life and eternal companion, Tarl, that helps hold my hand and continues to support my dream, as I do him. We got this 👍
Keep shining ✨️ Be inspired ✨️
