It's in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped. -Anthony Robbins

Today, Dustin made the most important decision of his life...He was baptized a member of the church, and I could not be more proud of him. It was so neat to see the power of missionary work in our home, and the great affect it has had on our life! Not just through the Missionaries, but through all of those that have set such a great example for Dustin.

Dustin is such a strong person, and I always knew this day would come! My testimony has grown so much by watching this wonderful person that I have the priveledge to be married to, and to one day be sealed to. I could never tell you how much he has helped me grow as a person physically, mentally and spiritually.

One thing that I admire about Dustin, is he makes decisions that are best for him and for his family. He takes the time to study, and learn about things before he commits. This being the same with the gospel... I have learned so much from him about doing things for yourself despite what others may think. He waited until he was ready, and it made today that much more special...

My mom waited outside in the car so that she could get pictures afterwards!;) Thanks for all you do mom, we lOVE YOU!


Considering the fact that Dustin is EXTREMELY stubborn and wouldn't let anyone come, or let me have a dinner after the baptism, my mom and Jerry were so sweet and took us to lunch at our beloved El Mexi to celebrate;)

Bridger and Court were able to join us! We love these two to death, they have been such great friends!


I love you babe, you are such a great example to me, and to everyone around you. I look forward to spending an eternity with you...
