A reminder

"There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children."
- M. Russell Ballard


A friend of mine mentioned she wanted to start giving "Messy House" tours - a tour of her house just as it is everyday, before the mad-dash-clean-up that happens when we know company is coming.


It does absolutely no good to compare ourselves to any other mother. Some may seem to have it all together, but nobody really does. We all have our struggles, our triumphs, our weaknesses, our strengths. We know if we are doing our best, according to our own circumstances. And that's all we can do.

how true! we always judge unfairly...our worst to others best!.....Book club, we choose a new book every month, I know the R.S do it in the Heart lake ward also. I started it about 2 years ago, it is truly wonderful we choose inspirational LDS books The Cardston book store gives us a deal (we buy in bulk) I think the most gratifying thing is how many lives it has changed, I have had so many sisters come to me expressing their gratitude for the lessons they have learned. I set it up so each month a different sister chooses a book, she then is in charge of hosting the evening providing a discussion panel and treats...sometimes we don't get home until midnight. We have a sister who is in charge of ordering the books and I do all the advertising and reminder emails. - I would encourage you to start one in your can even set it up through deseret tofw book club, we chose not to as it limits you to what books you choose to read! ask around to see who is interested xoxo
