Before I do my Choices-Thought I want to wish every mom out there a Happy Mother’s Day!

Today is the first day of school here so…I want to wish all of you mothers out there an unofficial Happy Mother’s Day!  I used to call my sister every year on the first day of school and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day…and I kind of feel like a young mom today, because I am sending one of the kids that I tend on a regular basis to school all day today!  He is in first grade and I have been tending him since he was 6 months old!  It is a bittersweet feeling, because you miss the baby/toddler stage, yet you are happy for their future!  I am not sure what I will do with my time now, but I do have some fun plans for the next couple of weeks to celebrate!  (I could clean house or work in the yard, but that is no fun!)

Now on to today’s post!

I thought that it would be fun to do a quote from our 40-day conference reading.  It is from the talk by President Monson on choices:Choices-thought-000-Page-1 Continue reading

Aug. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout

Are any of you out there melting as much as we are here in Utah?  It is definitely the dog days of summer!  Maybe that is why I have had lemons and lemonade on my mind all week…and that is what I have chosen for the theme for the Aug. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!Aug 2016 VT handout Continue reading

Jan. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout

Happy New Year Everyone!  

I hope that you are having a great day.

Here we are at the first of a new year and another month…so it is time for the Jan. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  The theme this month is  “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.

I chose to go with a “Frosty” theme, since it is winter here, and what a winter we are having!Jan 2016 VT handout Continue reading

July 2015 Visiting Teaching

July 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout

Here is my July 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout.

I cannot believe that it is July already!  I am having a hard time keeping up with summer and trying to get in all the fun activities that I want to do!  :)   I took last week off and I spent one of those days with my foot on ice!  I do not know exactly what I did, but I pulled a muscle or tendon or something in my foot.  (I know…I’m terribly coordinated!)  It is doing much better now, but I still have a bit of a limp.  I had better get it better real soon because I am going to be chasing a 2 year old around the rest of the week!  Well, so much about me…

This month the visiting teaching message for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is:  Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ:  Forgiving and Merciful.  You can read the entire message here.   I chose to focus on President Uchtdorf’s message.  I absolutely love this message…because after all aren’t we all in need of forgiveness??

4-Wheeling Weekend

Happy Monday everyone!  

I hope that you all had a great Easter Weekend and got to enjoy at least part of it with your family and those that you love.  I really enjoyed watching General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints this weekend and I feel renewed and ready to go forth again!  I also enjoyed watching the mini series-“AD The Bible Continues.”  I loved the first show…what do you think about it?

My husband and I have a property in Upton, Utah.  It is a hunting property that has tons of roads and trails to explore on!  Our family loves to go up there to look for deer, go fishing, hiking,  having picnics, exploring, hunting for horn sheds, and to ride the ATV’s!4-wheeling in Upton-spring 2015 Continue reading

General Conference Packets

I love to print packets for the grandkids and for myself for General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I thought that perhaps it would be fun to share a round-up of some of the ideas that I found! 

I love these packets to help keep the kids attention to the speakers and to keep them entertained so that the adults can enjoy conference at the same time!  Sometimes this is very difficult to do…but you can also use these packets when studying the talks later!

Some of these ideas come from Sugardoodle, which is a wonderful site for ideas for all of the church auxiliary programs!  If you have never checked it out, you might want to take a few minutes and look around…I am sure that you will love it!

This first link is the one that I love for my own personal use!  There are many pages and you might not want to print all of them, but pick out the ones that you want and put them in a binder!  This packet is a wonderful guide and great to use when the talks are being given, and again when you study the talks later!

Women’s Conference

We had a Stake Relief Society Women’s Conference at our church this past weekend.  It is an annual event that the  Stake Relief Society puts on.  The Relief Society is an organization for the women in our church.  There was a keynote speaker and then we broke out into different classes.  After all of the classes there was a luncheon.  I was asked to be in charge of the decorations for the tables and the cultural hall, for the luncheon.
