A few Sundays ago President Nelson asked the youth of our church to take a 7-day social media fast. I decided to join in. I wanted to write down what I learned and what I've decided to do next.

June Goals


I intentionally/unintentionally took May off for making goals, but I am back on track for June! Here are a few things I learned:
-I need to cut back on my goals. Less is more.
-Goals don't need to be perfect. You won't accomplish anything if you're forever waiting for the right time and the right words.

Our kids' sickness this week allowed me to appreciate the service we get to give as mothers.

Sons


I'm grateful I get to have sons.

I remember when Ephraim was born, I experienced a whole new level of motherly love. Love between a mother and a son is completely different than between a mother and her daughter.
