I wasn’t surprised when I read the news this morning that “American Idol” was ending it’s run after it’s fifteenth season, next year. Just a little melancholy because it signifies the end of an era and where I was first introduced to David Archuleta.
I know that there are people who still watch, even David fans. But I haven’t watched the show since Season 7 except in bits and pieces. I lost my faith in the show’s premise, to find the best singer. I mean, come on. Really??
The show declined in ratings after Simon left and I understand why. He’s as sharp as a tack at what he does and provided a lot of zingers and “did he really say that?” moments. But, in my opinion, there’s no excuse for degrading and belittling contestants for the sake of entertainment. It got old.
Apparently they are planning a big hurrah for the last season. I will watch but only to see glimpses of David.
Here are links to articles, to read more.

Today marks 1 year since I left Chile where I served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 2 years. Tomorrow will mark 1 year since I finished my full-time mission. This weekend has brought many memories of mission experiences in Chile, and the wonderful people that I shared my time with there. The memories have just come flooding! I've taken some time to ponder over what the mission has done for me, and keep other missionaries in mind and in my prayers as I think of them experiencing the same things. We went for some Chilean empanadas de pollo, pino, y queso to commemorate the Chilean mission experience. #mission #LDS #empanadas #Chile #missionaries #mormon #food #1year #memories
David Archuleta Mission Return: One Year Later
by Kristin, Guest Writer for The Voice
Today, March 24th marks at least one year since David has returned from serving his two-year mission. Like everyone else, I was so happy to see him back and thankful he got back to his family safely.
It’s amazing how much time flies sometimes. From heading or transferring to a new college, weddings, graduations, birthdays, whatever else may have happened to all of us in the past year, we aren’t the same as we were prior.
For me, 2014 was a difficult year. Lost weight, lost my cat, a second episode of depression…so much heartache and pain. David being back didn’t seem to alleviate all of my struggles, but it gave me a distraction from everything for a while.
Regardless of those struggles, none of us are the same since David came back a year ago. Some of us have stayed to wait it out; some of us have left or moved on for whatever reason. Some of us chose to believe and have faith when, to others, it just seemed impossible.
I’ve been reflecting the past few days as I write this. Having my spring break last week and taking some initiative with where I wanted to go in my life, I’ve seen how much I’ve grown and changed in the past year. I am definitely not the broken girl who had hit rock bottom with her faith and with everything around her a year ago. Just like David has grown, adjusted, and taken time to reconnect with himself, with his life. Not just his life, but his music, what he wants to say to his fans in that music, what he wants to say to the world…and what he wants to say for himself.
At times we got frustrated with him; I’ve had my moments too. Other times, we were excited for him, wondering about where he would take his career next after being away for two years. We worried about if he’s changed so much since those two years away, and if, due to his silence, if he even still wanted a career.
Well, I know one thing from what I’ve observed of David.
He doesn’t give up so easily.
In today’s music industry where we have—people who shall remain nameless—we need people like David to give us hope in good people, to make us feel good and inspired, and also to give us a chance to grow and change from what we learn from him or learn about ourselves.
I know, for me, and people who know me probably know this part of the story, but David was my light in a dark place. That unexpected/unanswered prayer who…
…switched something on in me again. Lit up something in me again that was snuffed out prematurely.
For a lot of us, life changed the very first time we saw David. For me, it took him going away for two years to make me really take a step back and realize what I was truly blessed with, what God placed in my life when I didn’t even ask for it.
A young man around my age, shy like me, who just wanted to do what he loved to help people. Someone that actually cared about the platform he was given, someone who wasn’t afraid to stand up for what mattered to him, and someone who was willing to take a step back himself with his life, and learn something he had to learn in order to move forward.
I’ve been afraid of disappointment, of being let down. Some people have thought that of David during the past year, and I can understand. When going through my personal demons, I struggled with my connection with David, letting other people bother me and letting doubts run my life…
…until I realized enough was enough.
Now, on this March 24th, I am still Kristin. I haven’t changed that much, but I’ve been healing. Taking it one day at a time with myself and with what David plans to do with his career and music next. The news last night of an announced concert has gotten us all hopeful again, excited for the future.
For me…it feels so close in this battle of personal doubts and fears from the past five years, trying to gain the courage to finally see, for myself, a man who has been such a gift in my life, who made me wake up and see where I was and the potential I have to do good, just as he has even before becoming famous.
To look him in the eyes and say, “You got me through the toughest years of my life.”
To hug him, have a picture with him, and see for myself that this has been worth it all this time.
Just as David is worth it…and was worth waiting for, and fighting for.

No snow shovel, so had to use a garden shovel to clear the snow today in Tennessee. The neighbor kids were sledding down the streets. The schools and the library are closed today from snow. Something new for me coming from Utah where I guess everybody is used to and prepared for snow days. I wore my scarf that my cousin got me for my birthday. My cousin just left to serve a mission in January. No shame, because I still love Pokemon, and I love my cousin. 👍. #snowinNashville #snow #shoveling #Pokemon #gottacatchemall #cousins
The scarf he mentions looks like this one?

“I’m really loving the Mexico love and that has triggered a ton of requests for meet & greets, and concerts from other Latin countries such as, Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Honduras, Panama, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, including a slew of cities in Mexico. Which then triggered a what about us from all the Asian countries, and Canada :) Great stuff.”
“It is so good to see David moving along in his career and that he hasn’t lost any fan admiration! Can’t believe this time last year we were counting the days for his return. It’s a fun ride trying to keep up with David’s travels!”
“It fills my heart to see that wherever David goes he has fans. He makes quite an impression on anyone he meets! He can’t hide his charm; it translates into any language!”
These comments from our posters echo the feelings I had last week, watching the coverage of the Roots Tech and Meet The Mormons Mexico events. It seems David has a home wherever he may roam. He is so loved. Fans appear even at a moment’s notice to welcome him. The reluctant star cannot escape stardom.
