#4 Seminary!


Sorry it has been such a long time since my last post. I have been very busy!


Anyway, as you can tell this post is going to be about SEMINARY!

What is seminary?

It says on lds.org

The seminary program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a four-year religious education program for youth.                                                                                                                       In seminary, hundreds of thousands of students and their teachers meet to study the scriptures, including the Bible (the Old Testament and the New Testament), the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.

Seminary is truly a blessing in my life and also in other peoples life. Like this guy:

When I was younger, I could not wait to go to seminary. I loved the idea of waking up early (in Costa Rica it starts at 5:00am) and learn more about the scriptures. 

On my first day, I was the happiest person in the world. Now that it has been 2 months and a haft, it is harder to wake up and go. I have not missed one day yet. Wait that was sort of a lie. I missed it one day. The Tuesday we were at the Termales Del Bosque. But i did do the homework. I have not missed a day that I could have gone. I am not going to miss seminary without a real excuse, like a trip or bad illness. That is my goal for this year!

Truly seminary has changed my life too. Waking up early is super good for you, and the prophet said to wake up early and go to bed early. I do that! I wake up at 4:30am to get ready and we leave the house at 4:45 am to pick up a young women. Then we start seminary at 5:00 am and finish at 6:00 am. I go to bed at 8:00 – 9:00 on weekdays. We go to bed at 9:00 when we have watched BYUtv on Wednesdays.

Our favorite shows on BYUtv are:

Relative Race

Random Acts

Paint the Town

Story Trek 

OK, now back to seminary. 

Here are some pictures of seminary:

Sometimes we walk home. It only take 30 minutes, and i have a better day the next day.

So that is seminary and more. Thanks for reading.
