My newest love

I am taking German 101, and I love it.

It's so fun to learn a new language. And we have so much fun in our class. It's a small group and we meet every day, so we are getting really close. I really hope I can use the language to serve someone in the future. I don't know how that would happen, but I hope it will.

I bought a German hymnal the other day, and I've had so much fun learning my favorite hymns in this beautiful language. It really makes me want to go on a mission to Germany or Austria or somewhere German speaking.

And I'm still loving music too. I'm so glad University Chorale has started back up again, because singing is such a blessing to me. It takes me away from my worries into the middle of something beautiful. It's marvelous focus on creating something beautiful, and to have the success of learning something new. It's also a powerful way to testify of Christ.

Thank goodness for general ed classes which have introduced me to the many wonderful things Heavenly Father created for me!


  1. Das ist sehr gut. Meine Mutter kommt aus Deutschland, aber ich spreche nur ein bischen deutsch.

    Enjoy the class! I loved learning how to pray in German in my BYU classes. And I highly recommend a mission! Yeah! It was nice to see you at Disneyland - if only for a minute!
