"Motherhood is not a burden to be borne, it is a privilege to be enjoyed. It is not a trial of endurance, it is a time of celebration." Winnie Dalley


Small Things

"As you create a home, don't get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don't dwell on your failures, but think about your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful for the journey." - Marjorie Pay Hinckley

"...Behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass....and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls." -Alma 37:6-7

I was thinking of this in relation to the very small and simple things like.... loving and playing with a child, creating a clean and lovely environment, kind words said, choosing patience and charity instead of anger and selfishness. I am so grateful for the Lord's help with the 'small' things I do everyday, because I need it!

President Gordon B. Hinckley said of us:
"If anyone can change the dismal situation into which we are sliding, it is you. Rise up, O women of Zion, rise to the great challenge which faces you."

I know we can change the world because Heavenly Father has told us we can!
