From My Thoughts

11 things

I almost forgot to do my 11 things to start off the week, but I have been on a roll so I didn’t want to quit! I actually got scripture study in today! I am not the greatest, but I hopefully can keep it going throughout this week. This last weekend was rough with some medical stuff going on, but I think I am on the mends so YAY! I took absolutely no pictures over the weekend. It was just a super low key weekend! I actually got the house back to normal & actually clean. I am trying to…

11 things

Happy Monday! Here are 11 things to start off the week: We are starting our summer reading chart today! We are doing a little modified one with stickers for how many books we read daily. Hopefully, it makes reading fun during the hot summer months! Currently craving a sweet so I am munching on chocolate…

11 things to start the week

Happy Tuesday! With yesterday being Memorial Day, it is the beginning of my week so I decided to make a quick list of how my week is starting off… Haven’t logged on to my online class so I don’t know what I’m in for for the week yet *nervous laughter*  2. My child now say “taco”…

Christmas in October

Ok, you got me. This isn’t really about Christmas, although Christmas is in 77 days! I am talking about the holiday of “General Conference” among members (and non-members) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Growing up, my mom would always turn Conference weekend into a mini Christmas; the house would be spotless,…

Hi friends!! It has been a hot second. again. But, here I am back again!! I have been reading Rosemary Card’s Model Mormon (you can buy it HERE) and I came across this quote from Brene Brown. (too good not to share!!)   “Belonging is being somewhere where you want to be, and they want…

talk, rejoice, and preach

Happy (almost) Easter! I love Easter and the time to reflect on the Savior. “And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.”…

Thursday Thoughts

A couple years ago, Holy Week (the week before Easter) fell around the same time as it does this year. Easter Sunday is also the first Sunday of April, or in the LDS world that means that it is also General Conference weekend. Back to the story – A couple of years ago, I was…

Prophets & Temples

Yesterday was a pretty significant day in the LDS church. We received our 17th president and new First Presidency. President Russell M. Nelson is now prophet with first counselor being Dallin H. Oaks and second counselor being Henry B. Eyring. I wish I could describe the sweet Spirit that I felt as I watched the…
