Drowning in Kid Clothes!? Time to Minimize!

So recently I went through my girls' clothes. They had so many, their drawers were bursting and they still had a laundry basket full of folded clothes to be put away. Clearly we had too many. Lots of our friends have older girls who give us their too small clothes and we LOVE them for it! My girls love getting new clothes, especially when they are from people they admire and lo...

Then, we went to church and a ...

Somewhere in all of that, he was supposed to spend time with Bear (who was 1 1/2 years old at the time) and me. Needless to say, it didn't happen very often and it was often difficult. During the following four years, we had another child (Miss...

Ponderize Isaiah 1:18!

Lately I have been thinking of snow. We got our first real snowfall really late this year and the whole topic of snow has consumed me. So, when I read Isaiah 1:18, I knew it'd be a good scripture to work on for the week. It's also a good reminder as to the power of repentance and what the Savior has done for me. Even if I fall into sin, my Savior can help me return to a pure ...
