Hi, my name is Misty, and I am just like you trying to enjoy and survive life to the best of my ability. I am the mother of 2 beautiful children, RJ and Twila Mae, and a wife in a marriage that is trying to heal from some intense damage.
I work at Dixie State University as the Marketing and Communication Operations Coordinator and am also a dance educator and choreographer, but most importantly I’m a Mom. I am the founder and owner of a professional dance company called “God’s Messengers,” and run a small design business with my husband called Frisbey Designs.
I started this blog a few years ago to share my two cents in hopes to help others with life’s nonsense, but my life became an active volcano that erupted shortly after starting my blog, and the lava is still burning deep. As I go through immense amounts of therapy, writing, and dancing I have felt the need to write again and share with others to educate about my life’s nonsense. I am not a grammar guru at all, so I apologize for bad grammar, but I write from my heart not from my head.
I have played several roles in my life’s journey and have been able to learn from each road I have traveled. I do not always learn the right away, but sometimes through humility, I was open and willing to learn. I have been the victim, the culprit, a pessimist, an optimist, a rescuer, the counselor, the counseled, a referee, on the offense, on the defense and a mediator.
Even when the going gets tough, I try to find love in all my situations even the ones that enter me into the deepest darkest places. I say try because I don’t always succeed. Those dark places make me very aware and grateful for the light places I have been and remind me of somewhere I never want to stay. I will share many of these situations with you throughout this blog.
I do believe with all my heart in what I know to be the true gospel as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I believe it because I have faith in what it is and what it stands for, and I have had my own personal conversion to this gospel. I will often write about the teachings and discoveries I have found through my conversion to this gospel. It was through my sins, trials, and mistakes that I fell away from my gospel, and then it was through larger sins, trials, and mistakes that I found my conversion back to my gospel, and what it means to me.
I am more insecure, scared, and anxious than anyone knows, but I am always trying to battle those habits of Satan with love and perseverance from God.
Do I fail? Yes, every day but even through the hardest times I never stop trying.
Love is a powerful tool and one that has helped me conquer a lot of life’s nonsense.
