"There is no better time than now, this very Christmas season, for all of us to rededicate ourselves to the principles taught by Jesus the Christ. It is the time to love the Lord our God with all our heart — and our neighbors as ourselves. It is well to remember that he who gives money gives much, he who gives time gives more, but he who gives of himself gives all. Let this be a description of our Christmas gifts." (Thomas S. Monson) #Mormon#LDS
Our trials can make us better and stronger people. They may be hard and seem impossible at times, but if we lean on Christ we can do all things that strengthens us. Philippians 4:13 #lds#mormon#sharegoodness
Injured my MCL on Saturday so I’ve been laid up, eating taquitos and watching daytime TV all day, which isn’t as awesome as it sounds. BTW Did you know that Dominos is now offering insurance on their Pizzas?! How weird is that?
So magical to come back to Utah and enjoy these sacred grounds. Loving this trip and my amazing man! ❤️❤️ @ericwestoverdc #lighttheworld#lds#babymoon
“I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.” ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• It has been one of T-H-O-S-E days around here. These 2 babes of mine keep my hands full during the day and on some days suck the life straight out of me. Not usually, usually they fill me up and give me all the “feels” and happiness overflowing when my big kids are at school; BUT, let’s be real some days are just plain tough. And that’s o-kay. Today was filled with my wild and crazy 2 year old struggling to share and screaming to manifest his disapproval, he began running around the house naked because he apparently learned how to take off his pants and diaper off and was trying to go potty secretively as I chased after him🤦🏻♀️🙄, and my mild babe was not so mild today and was screaming his head off fighting sleep from a late night last night which threw him off....as he started to fall asleep in the car my wild and crazy would scream to wake him up.😡 To top it off, my house looks like a bomb exploded and I had no motivation to lift a finger and feel like I cannot get on top of it all. 🙃But, then I see these 2 besties in the making and think it’s oh so worth it. You ladies with close babes are my heroes. Anyway, these random hard days thankfully aren’t every day and remind me of all the hard work I usually do 🤣and how much I am grateful for the good days and even the mediocre. Here’s to getting through today mommas. We got this. Love my babies. Good thing they’re cute 🤣💙💙. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#reallife#motherhood#momsofinstagram
Only Shylee...the Master, the artist, the genius...can turn my frumpy greying self into a blonde bombshell! Thanks for ridding my roots of all the salty greys and making my hair all shiny and new! You’re the best, Shylee!!!
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more” ✨ we didn’t leave this house at all this week. Not once. A full week of nursing my kids back to health has brought more of Christ into our Christmas than outings, shopping, shows, craft activities, and field trips I had planned for. We snuggled, kissed, prayed, read scripture, lots of read alouds, giggled, and slept A LOT! ✨ His love is here, and it feels just like this room looks. Calm. Peace. Cozy. Quiet. Still. Warm. Beautiful.
Another fun framed Scrabble box going down!
I finally have time to myself, and instead of showering and getting ready for the day. I am listening to Christmas music and practicing my calligraphy.
How cute is this new top? Just listed in new arrivals. PS- you still have a few more days to order in time for Christmas delivery! But hurry... The last day to order is December 18! 🎄🎄
When I was unlovable, he loved me. When I didn’t think I could be rescued from the dark, he saved me. I have peace. I didn’t think it was possible. It’s so sweet. I’m relieved because I know that he loves me no matter what. Peace, he offers it to all that come unto him. #lds#templosud#ldstemple 💜 throwback lindo de semana retrasada!
#LightTheWorld Day 15: "Blessed are the Merciful." Matthew 5:7
I must have asked her at least 1000 times to stop doing "gynacsticks" in the house. Flips on the couch, near misses with lamps, a close call with the TV... She is well aware that this is outside play. Today she did a rolling handstand from her bed, and landed smack hard on her back. The look on her face was instant, and clear. Despite the obvious physical pain she was feeling from the spill, she was mostly scared she was going to be in big trouble for disobeying me once again. She heard the initial annoyance in my voice, and I could see the remorse cross her face. This time though, I decided to be merciful ❤ I scooped her up, and kissed all her bumps. She had already learned the lesson, and now it was time to help her understand and heal. My hope, as we move forward, is that choosing mercy over anger she will learn to trust me. She'll know she can come to me when life starts the hard lessons, and I can be the one to help her understand and heal once again.

The Quran asks: “What is harder, your heart or the mountain?” The Book of Mormon asks: “Are you sufficiently humble?” and “Are you ready to stand before your Maker?” The Bible asks, “Is God your first love?” and “Shall I present something other than my heart to Him?”
