kenziebutler16 Well, my friends, tomorrow's the day. I may not be going for a year and a half, but I'll miss all of you anyway(: I won't have my phone during the day most days, so be patient if I don't respond to texts or calls for a few hours. No phone also means I won't be able to post a lot of pictures until I get back, so if you want to see pictures of my adventures or just stay updated as to where I am, like the Heritage Tours page and they'll be posting often(: I guess that's all, then! Thanks for all your support the last year or so and I'll see you all in three weeks! (: 4d

kenziebutler16 Happy Father's Day to the sweetest, weirdest, funniest, strongest man I know. Since day one, you've been my rock and my role model. I'm so grateful for your unfailing testimony and for teaching me what it is to be Christlike. It's because of what you've taught me my whole life that I know I'm ready to go out on my own now. I'm crying just writing this, so I can't imagine how hard it will be to leave, but I know no matter how far from home I end up, I'll always be your little girl. Thank you for the incredible 18 years of love and laughter you've been such a big part of. I love you, Daddy(: 4w

kenziebutler16 I've dreamed of going on a church history tour since I read Work and the Glory in 7th grade. Now, over six years later, I'm about to see all of the sites I read about and could only imagine in my head. In 28 days, I leave for three weeks on this incredible adventure. In 34 days, I'll visit the Sacred Grove. In 37 days, I'll be in New York City. In 43 days, Nauvoo the Beautiful. In 45, Far West and Adam-Ondi-Ahman. I've worked so hard to get where I am now, and I pray that this trip will be even a fraction of what I dream it will be. #HeritageTours 1mon

kenziebutler16 Over the last several months, a lot of people have asked me why I want to go to BYU. Until recently, I didn't have an answer other than 'It's my dream.' The other night, I was reading in the Doctrine and Covenants and I came across section 11 verse 8. I realized then why BYU was where I need to be. I feel a spirit there that I personally do not feel anywhere else. That doesn't mean that everyone should go there. Maybe someone else will have this feeling at USU or the U. But for me, I know I need to go to Brigham Young University because the Spirit told me so. I know that I will never regret this decision and I am so grateful for the Lord's guidance in my life(: 1mon

kenziebutler16 My mom is and always will be my best friend. I know she's on my side no matter what the situation. She's my number one fan and the greatest person I know. She always knows how to make me smile or laugh when I need it. In fact, I think she knows me better than I do. The hardest part about growing up is knowing I'm going to have to leave her, but I'm so grateful for the time I've spent with her. The Taylor Swift song says it best, because every day I'm with my mom really is the best day. I love you, Momma. Happy Mother's Day(: 2mon

kenziebutler16 So, here's my home for the weekend. I have a running count of 27 dead, stuffed things. It's beautiful, though(: And yes, that is a hat on the elk. 2mon

kenziebutler16 I know I'm kind of late...but if any of you ever wondered what mine and Em's friendship is like in a collage, here you go. This girl is, simply (and in the words of Barney Stinson), awesome. A ton of my favorite memories throughout the last 16 years have been with her by my side. I am so grateful for the example she is to me of kindness and love and for the incredible friend she is. True friends don't come around all that often, but I was blessed enough to find one in her. I'm so proud of the amazing young woman she's grown into and I can't wait to see all of the opportunities the future has to offer her. She's my best friend, she's my sister. So here's to all of the years of memories we've had, and to the hope of even better ones to come. I love you, Em. Happy birthday(: 3mon
  •   emeryjane_29 Thanks Kenz! (: Love you so much!! (: 3mon

kenziebutler16 "The Savior's atonement in the garden and on the cross is intimate as well as infinite. Infinite in that it spans the eternities. Intimate in that the Savior felt each person's pains, sufferings, and sicknesses. Consequently, he knows how to carry our sorrows and relieve our burdens that we might be healed from within, made whole persons, and receive everlasting joy in his kingdom."
He lives and loves us. #BecauseOfHim, we are never alone.

kenziebutler16 2014 years ago today, Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem. After His death, the Gospel was taken from the earth. 184 years ago today, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was organized. The only true Gospel of Christ was restored upon the earth. These two dates are probably the most important to my life, even though I wasn't alive for either of them. Without the Gospel, I don't even want to think about where I'd be. I know that it is true and I don't ever want to be without it. I'm so blessed to have been born into a family with the truth. I can't wait to be able to share that knowledge and joy with the people I meet on my mission and throughout my life. The Savior has given us His light and it is our duty to share it with those around us. We cannot forget the mission given to us and the potential we have through the pure love of Christ. <3 3mon

kenziebutler16 It's so sad, yet strangely incredible, to think that in the next few years before I see my home away from home again, so many things will change in my life. I may be a completely different person by the time I'm back at the happiest of all lands, but I will always return as the little girl who loves Flynn Rider and Mickey Mouse. As Mr. Disney himself said, Disneyland will always be our land, my land(: 4mon
