kenziebutler16 It's like a symphony; just keep listening, and pretty soon you'll start to figure out your part. Everyone plays a piece, and there are melodies in each one of us. Oh, it's glorious. 6d

kenziebutler16 Flashback to exactly six months ago today and to what was definitely one of my favorite days...well, ever. It was crazy, terrifying, and absolute chaos, and I want to be a part of it again someday. It's up to you, New York, New York. 2w

kenziebutler16 Never mind that all that's happening in these pictures from the last moments of Heritage Tours is Ashlynn saying to me "Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry" and me completely ignoring her. I love this girl so much and I'm so grateful for what she's taught me in the few months I've known her. She is unfailingly kind and an incredible example of a Christlike person. She will surely be a force to be reckoned with in the mission field. I'm pretty jealous that the people of Chicago get her longer than I ever did, but I can't wait to hear how she changes lives for the better. I'm so sorry I couldn't be there today, Ash, but please know I love you like a sister. Thank you for everything and God be with you till we meet again. 1mon

kenziebutler16 To my friends and family on this last Thanksgiving at home, I love you. Thank you to you and my loving Father in Heaven for the beautiful life I have. "It's up to us to be the change. And even though this world needs so much more...there's so much to be thankful for." 2mon

kenziebutler16 There's no turning back now, my stake president submitted my mission papers to the Quorum of the Twelve last night(: I'm so excited and grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord, but first comes the waiting! Start guessing everyone, my call will be here in the next few weeks! (: 2mon

kenziebutler16 I've definitely posted this picture before, but...a very happy birthday to the genuinely sweetest girl I know. I love you to the moon and back, Mad. You're half the reason I come home for church (don't tell my family)...(; Haha but really you are one amazing young woman that's bound to do incredible things in life. You already have. Thanks for being my daughter, sweet girl. Hope you've had an awesome day! Love you! (: 3mon
  •   m_broph Love you, MaPa! This is really making me miss you! Thanks for being such a sweetheart! 3mon

kenziebutler16 I've said so many goodbyes in the last year and a half, I was sure the hardest one had already been said. Well, I was wrong. Until now, I never would have imagined loving someone like family after knowing them for barely three months. But the Lord puts people in your life that He knows you need. And I needed Angie. I cannot express in words how grateful I am to have met her. She is a breath of fresh air and a light that I've used a lot lately. The next two years without her sass and her amazing way of knowing when you need a shoulder to cry on are going to be some of the hardest. But we're both going to return better servants of the Lord and for that I am thankful. Through Heritage Tours, we were prepared together and now we'll serve together, though in different parts of the world. It will be a joyous reunion when we meet again. I love you, Ang. God be with you til we meet again. 4mon

  •   jlrs6 You graduating made me feel a bit old....a mission is going to multiply that along with how proud I am of you! Keep me updated! Love you! @kenziebutler16 4mon
  •   kenziebutler16 Wow, this is so late, but thank you! Jen, you've been such a great role model for me! Not to mention the best teacher a girl could ask for(: I'll definitely keep you posted! Love you, too! @jlrs6 4mon

kenziebutler16 This General Conference has been one of the most rewarding for me and it could very possibly be my last at home for a few years. In a week from today, I'll start my mission papers and begin preparing in a different way than I have the rest of my life to serve the Lord. It is clear to me that right now there is no other path for me than to serve a mission. I have been blessed with the knowledge of the truth, a gift that so many do not yet have. How ungrateful I would feel if I did not do all in my power to enjoy that blessing with others. It is my duty to share with my heavenly brothers and sisters the joy that has come into my life through the light of Christ. I pray that we all gain a firmer resolve this Conference weekend to follow the example of our Savior and show the world what it is to be a true disciple of the Lord. 4mon

kenziebutler16 I just had to say goodbye to one of the best people I've ever had the privilege of knowing. I couldn't stop crying on the way home and I tear up every time I think about it again. Blake is definitely one of the weirdest, funniest, and most spiritual young men in the world. He's one of those people you just like to be around because he makes you happy. He's given me some memories I'll never be able to replace. The next two years will be some of the hardest in the world, but I am so proud of the person he is. I hope we all strive to follow his example in our everyday lives because the world will be a better place if we do. Thank you for everything, Blake. Godspeed. Elder. 4mon

kenziebutler16 This picture was taken as I looked across the Mississippi River after walking down Parley Street. This is what the pioneers would have seen as they chose to leave their beautiful home of Nauvoo behind in order to follow the Lord's plan for them. Today, I've been thinking a lot about our Heavenly Father's plan for us. Though He knows how our lives will turn out, we still have our agency. It is our choice whether or not we will follow His will. It's a scary thing, going into the unknown, not knowing what's ahead. It would be easy to turn another way or simply stay where we are. But if the pioneers had not taken that leap of faith and crossed the river, they would have missed out on the miracles and blessings the Lord had prepared for them and we would not be here. It may not be this literal, but we still have a question to ask ourselves: will we sit back and choose not to follow our pioneer ancestors' example, or will we follow the Savior and cross the river? 5mon

kenziebutler16 Happy 18th to the girl who single handedly got me through high school. Honestly, I would not have stayed sane without her. I'm so grateful for the countless memories and inside jokes we have. She's been by my side through it all and I hope her life turns out as wonderful as she deserves. Love you so much, Dar! Happy birthday(: 5mon
