I was inspired to create this blog for a couple of reasons. First, while I was on Facebook earlier today, I was reading on one of the home-school groups I am apart of. There was a lady on there who had posted about how she wants to start teaching her children to memorize The Family: A Proclamation To The World. I thought that was a great idea! I want to teach my children to memorize the Proclamation as well as scriptures (the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, and last but not least, the Bible), The Living Christ, General Conference talks, etc, that might help them build a stronger testimony and be firm in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
A few minutes later, a good friend of mine posted about how she is teaming up with another fellow blogger, doing a “Spiritual Bootcamp” for several days. Each day, they would be posting about how we can strengthen our faith and testimonies in the Lord, Jesus Christ, how to come closer to and know Him, being more consistent in reading the scriptures daily, getting more out of General Conference, etc. Today was Day 2. She posted a phrase in The Family: A Proclamation To the World that says,
“Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.”
That sentence is full of eternal wisdom and guidance. It could be dissected into its own blog series! Giving me another purpose for writing this blog! I’m so excited!!
Lastly, I also want to write about the every day life. Cooking, cleaning, DIY crafts / projects, personal mommy vents and successes, activities with the family, and anything else that I can think of!
I hope that as you read my posts that you can find inspiration, ideas, feel the Spirit, understand that you are not alone in whatever you may be going through, and you have a friend in me.
