I served an LDS ASL mission in Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington from February 2013-February 2014. After The accidental death of my mother, father and two youngest brothers, I returned home. Shortly after, I started my blog, “A New Normal.” I relay my experience with grief and share my experiences, relating to my faith in Christ and how I work through the hard days. I married my high school sweetheart Jacob Hall in May of 2015. I am currently attending Idaho State University and studying English. I love to write, music, and above all, being with my family. Right now, the future is bright and full of options, and so I take one day at a time.
The motto I live by I learned from my dad. “Life isn’t about discovering who you are; it is about discovering who you want to become.” -Bill Parrish
