I am so grateful for the man I married. I am grateful I can have him forever, and we can grow together.
When I was on my mission, I was worried about my future, and about marrying the right man. I didn't understand faith very well. At the beginning of my mission, when I was having a particularly hard time focusing my heart, I begged for help from my Heavenly Father. I promised Him that I would give all my heart to missionary work, if he would please protect my future.
I gave everything I had in Chile. Initially, I probably worked hard because I needed blessings, and it was the only way I knew how to deserve them. Later, though, I really grew to love my Heavenly Father, and to have a sincere desire to serve Him. I learned that there was nothing I could do - no amount of hard work - that would make me eligible for the blessings He had already given me. I would always be a debtor.
Whether I deserved it or not, however, my Heavenly Father truly did protect my future - in ways that I never would have known to want myself. He has provided perfectly.
I am so grateful for a good husband, and a happy little life.
