Proud I'm a Latter-Day Saint...I go to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Some of you may know it as being Mormon. Well in my church, you aren't supposed to drink Caffeine. Well there is DEFINITELY Caffeine in Red Bull! haha my dad let me and my brother split a Red Bull...and it was a BIG Red Bull...It was probably a 12 or 16 oz. Can. I was excited! I LOVE Red Bull! So my brother split it equally into our own cups and we sat down to eat dinner. I took a sip...YUM....but when I took another sip...something felt wrong.......I felt like if my parents looked at me I was going to get in HUGE trouble....well kinda like that...but I also felt like it was...I don't know, wrong maybe....and also like I should NOT be doing it. so I got up...walked over to my brother....and said,"Here." and went and sat back down again. I felt the Spirit sooo strong at that moment...I felt like I did the other day when I used $2 and bought one of those balloons to write my name on and Donate Presents for Kids who needed them or for Kids who didn't get presents on Christmas. I felt sooo good, and my eyes filled up with tears as I looked at my brother drinking it...and I was thankful for the gospel being in my life and for being strong enough to resist the temptation of Caffeine. I am truly PROUD of myself...I feel sooo good STILL... :)


  1. =) this is just like you, so sweet and generous!

  2. If you feel this good turning down a can of Red Bull, just think of how good you'll feel if someone offers you drugs and you say no. You should be very proud of yourself, you made a good decision here.

    Love this post, it made me smile.
