This month, we are doing a series on strengthening families. 31 days to a closer family is what the series is called. During this month, I have been reflecting on what it is that makes a family strong. What makes my family strong? What makes my husband’s family strong? What makes OUR family strong? I know that there are a few key things that bring us together.  Forgive me for speaking boldly. I know that some people don’t like it, but I feel like I have no other choice. I must tell others what I believe, because I believe...

This month, we’re sharing 30 different ways to grow closer as a family. You can see the other ideas we’ve shared here.  Family counsel is something that I’d never really heard of before I married my husband. It is a weekly ritual in his family. It is a tool they used each week to keep the family on the same page. It is different from Family Home Evening, although it could be combined into the same night if needed.  Basically, family counsel is a time for the whole family to get together and plan the week, talk...

During the month of October, Traci and I are publishing a post everyday that has something to do with families. Since today is Sunday, I wanted to focus a little on my religious beliefs and what they have to do with families. Please feel free to ask me any questions you have about the church. If you would like to receive a Book of Mormon, free of charge, please  fill out the contact form at the bottom of this post and I’ll get it sent out to you right away.  I have made no secret that I am a member of the Church of Jesus...

I realized the other day that I hadn’t really introduced myself super well before I wrote my first Sunday post. This post will be a bit short, and sweet. But I hope to explain a bit of my beliefs to you as best I can. Please note, that I am not very eloquent in speaking, obviously 🙂 But I hope to share some of the sweet truths I believe. {You can check out this video for a short introduction to what We Believe} First, I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and has a purpose for me, and sent me here to become like Him....

My son just turned three, and is WAY into superheroes. It’s a lot of fun, and I love zooming around the room with him saving the world. But at the same time, I really want him to have real heroes to look up to in his life, you know what I mean? I am so lucky to have married a wonderful man who I know is my Son’s ultimate hero and man he looks up to and strives to be. I am so grateful to have the Bible and Book of Mormon, to teach my son about heroes that lived long ago, and have their life stories to share with us. They don’t...

Each month, on the first of the month, I try to write a religious/spiritual themed post. The purpose of that is to help my readers (that’s you) understand a little more about who I am and what my beliefs are. There are a few other bloggers of my religion (Mormon) who do this same thing. You can find links to their posts at the bottom of this one. If you’d like to read other religious type posts I’ve written, click here.  I wrote this post on marriage a little while ago, and I was hesitant to post it because of some...

Hey! Happy Sunday to all of you fabulous readers. As some of you may know, the first Sunday of every month, I, along with a few other bloggers, publish a post that has something to do with my faith. In the past, I have talked about the Atonement, conference, and how to have a peaceful home. I try hard to mix it up and talk about all different aspects of my beliefs,...

Every month, on the first Sunday, I dedicate my blog post to a spiritual subject. I feel that my belief in Christ is a fundamental part of my every day life, and you cannot know who I am and what I believe without knowing about my church and it’s teachings. I spend more time on these first Sunday posts than I do on five or six normal posts. I pray about them,...

A few other bloggers and myself have decided to dedicate the first Sunday of every month to a spiritual/inspiration post. I hope you enjoy this one. Click here to read the other church related posts I have written. Please remember that the things I talk about in these posts are special to me. If you chose to comment (which I would love!) please keep it positive! Thank you! If you are familiar at all with the LDS (Latter Day Saint) church, chances are pretty good that you have heard the term “conference” before. It’s...

**Update: I can’t believe that I had two huge mistakes when making these printables. Thanks SO much to my reader who pointed these mistakes out. I have fixed them and they are all ready to go (hopefully). Please let me know if there are any other mistakes! Today is the annual Young Women General Conference. Every year, in the spring, the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints hold a conference and speak directly to the young girls of the church. It is such an amazing opportunity for them to talk specifically to...
