If you like to help people, try stay-at-home motherhood

Do you remember taking those career aptitude tests in college? They would measure your strengths and weaknesses, your likes and dislikes and tell you what would be a fulfilling career for you.

Sick Kids

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

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.

It's time for Revelation

Last April, President Monson urged us to read the Book of Mormon more. Sometimes when we are given direction and it's not something concrete like "Read the Book of Mormon before Christmas" I have a hard time following through. Are you this way? Anyway I didn't immediately make a concerted effort to change my habits, because I already was trying to read everyday.

Positive motherhood blogs

I have such a love for positivity.

One of my favorite kinds of positivity is positivity from women about motherhood. It seems we are all inspired by different people. Have you found that to be true?

April Goals

I made my April goals a little late. I've been inspired by Lara Casey's recent post about cutting back. It felt like the right message for me this month.

Failure is the best teacher

At my college graduation, 2010

As a young 21-year-old approaching my college graduation, I decided to apply for graduate school. I was excited and felt strongly that I should apply.
