What is this blog for?

About a year ago I had an epiphany that I needed to blog intentionally to others. I tried a few different things and even ended up changing the name of my blog. It's been a great learning experience and I wanted to chronicle it here.

Hard makes you happy

In high school I had my first experience with pushing my body to its physical limits.

Where do you find joy?

I listened to a talk recently by Sister Jean B. Bingham. In it she asked, "What brings you joy? The sight of your loved ones at the end of a long day? The satisfaction of a job done well? The light in someone’s eyes when you share their burden? The words of a hymn that reaches deep into your heart? The handclasp of a close friend?" Isn't that beautiful to think about? Just what would you say? What is it in your daily routine that brings you joy? As I thought about my own answers, I wondered what others in a similar situation to mine would say about their own day, and what I could learn from it.

Children have a very special role in our world as bearers of Jesus Christ's light.

March Goals + February Goals Check-in

Happy March! My Powersheets look a little different this month because I ran out of months in my workbook and the Cultivate shop is not getting restocked until May... so.... I'm glad I have a copier!

Frankie the Wild One

Our darling Frankie is just under two years old (21 months). He's changed a lot over the past year from the sweetest baby to (no kidding) the wildest toddler. Because of his sweet nature and infectious laugh, it is so hard to be frustrated with him, but life is so different than when he was a baby. I've been trying to pinpoint some of my stressors lately, and I have to say, the stage he is in is one of them.

How to be Happy

I was looking at a grocery ad the other day that had Valentine flowers, chocolates, and special dinners.

I've got so much I want to share with you!

I'll start today with sharing some things that have been inspiring me lately. When I've got downtime I often spend it seeking out uplifting things on the internet.
