The Battle of Monday Night – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

Chalk it up as a successful Family Home Evening. That’s what I’ve decided to do. It’s after midnight, post-Monday-FHE chaos, and I can’t sleep because of what an amazing FHE we had. Oh yeah. What was so great about it, you ask? Let’s see… Was it when ballet class got over late so the girls didn’t get home until 6:30? Or the fact that my husband had forgotten to order the pizza (bless him!) so we...

The Soul-Garden – By Contributor Mama Heidi Marie

Nature has such powerful life lessons. I adore flowers, blooms and metaphors with these amazing creations. I recently took a few trips to the garden shops with my kids; yes, crazy, but I tried to share one of my happy places with my little ones. Both a sweet and sour experience to be honest, but I love the results nonetheless. The garden shop has lovely growing seeds, the smell of lush dirt and...

Thou Shalt be Favored of the Lord – By Contributor Mama Jennifer

From the time I was a child in the gospel learning the stories in the scriptures, I have been familiar with the characters of Laman and Lemuel and the fact that they were continually murmuring. They murmured about leaving Jerusalem, they murmured when they were asked to return to Jerusalem for the plates and they continually murmured over their afflictions and sufferings in the wilderness....

Obedience – By Contributor Mama Michelle Olsen

Obedience has got to be one of the most important principles of the gospel. It is certainly something that the Savior taught us most clearly. His obedience was not disguised in a parable or a misunderstood principal. It was very clear that the Savior obeyed His Father’s will at all times. Jesus said, “I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me,” and “I do always those things that...
