Change Is Beautiful


I have never publicly mentioned this to my followers but I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (AKA LDS or mormons). I was actually born and raised in the church. My mother was the first in her family to know of and convert to the gospel. I was practically born in the church as my mom converted to the church when I was about six months old. I was baptized in the church at the age of eight (this is the age you can baptize at). I continued in the church until about the age of 18, around this time I kind of wandered off and started doing my own thing. I became inactive in the church for about eight years, until summer of 2015 when I decided to come back. It has been a year and four months since I returned to the church. I came back at a very crucial moment in my life. I was going through, what has been, one of the hardest obstacles I have had to overcome this past year. However, I have been able to find comfort in the gospel and in knowing of my Fathers love for me. If there is one thing I have learned this year is that every thing happens for a reason. Times get hard so that we may learn; we learn how to become stronger, we learn to overcome things we thought we couldn't, we learn to love better and harder, we learn to understand, we learn to appreciate, we learn how to become humble, we learn how to be more compassionate, we learn to heal and most importantly we learn to forgive and to love ourselves. Through these hard times we learn what true happiness is, what we want out of life and what we deserve. If you learn to look at life from the right perspective you will see that everything you have gone through has helped you become who you are. Everything is a learning experience, your failures in life do not define who you are; use those experiences as fuel to become better than the person you were yesterday. 
Now, I am not sure what religion you are a part of but whichever it may be, I hope you know how valuable you are, as a woman, in the eyes of The Lord. You are a daughter of a heavenly king who loves YOU beyond measure. Don't ever allow anyone to make you feel small or like you are undeserving of greatness because you are a queen, you deserve nothing but the best. I hope you always remember this; no matter who you are, what religion you come from, what color and/or race you are, or the mistakes you have made, HE LOVES YOU! His love for us is unconditional, don't ever forget that. 
One of the greatest goals as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that we can accomplish is entering the temple. In the temples we make sacred covenants with The Lord and receive garments (which we wear underneath our clothing) to remember the covenants made. The road to the temple is not always an easy one, it is a process as we must be worthy to enter the temple. For someone like me who spent years inactive in the church it was a little more challenging. However, it has been a life changing experience one that I would not trade for the world. I have grown and learned to love and know my savior so much more because of this. For that, I am eternally grateful. Well this past Saturday was very special for me because I was able to enter the temple and make these covenants with my father in heaven. I now wear garments, because of their sacredness they are to be worn underneath our clothes to not be seen. You can learn more about the garment through this video here
With all of this being said I will be adjusting my wardrobe just a bit, however, I am excited for whats to come. Being and dressing modest can be cute and sexy too and I will show you how to do just that. Cute and sexy doesn't always mean showing off all that you got. It's being classy and wearing what you got with confidence. As the meme world would say "In a world full of Kardashians, be Ayesha Curry"

Love Luchi <3
