Today is my 19th birthday being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its been a long road yet successful and blessed. I have always said that I owe my life to the help and guidance of certain “angels” in my life and also the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I would not be here if it wasn’t for them or for the mercy of my Heavenly Father above.

Last night I had dinner with part of my family and while we got some ice cream the topic of Vanilla Ice came up. Somethings about a concert…well Eric was sing ALL the words to Ice Ice Baby. It was the funniest thing I ever saw. I never knew that a professional looking guy like him would know all the words to this song, enjoy. Oh and this is my first time ever watching the music video. 🙂
One day during my mission while tracking my mission comp and I started singing songs. I didn’t know the words to Amazing Grace but she knew them and taught me the first line. It so happen that we hit a street that was a dead end and as we continued down the street snow piles were everywhere and and it was like a big wall of 5 tall deep it outline the street…so when I made her sing it out loud. Holy cow! The echo with her voice was amazing!!! I love it so much that I would even bug her to sing it to me before sleeping some nights. And now I miss her and its not the same but this song still comforts me and inspires me to live! Hope you enjoy it!
