Do you See What I See?  Loving the Divinity Within
What do you think about yourself?  Our minds are full of self-criticism, self-loathing, and self-sacrifice.  And yet  Elder Ronald A. Rasband has taught, “[the Lord] values the divinity within us, and so much we.” Using principles of mindfulness and the gospel, let’s rewrite the stories we tell ourselves and fill our minds  with self-awareness, self-compassion, and selflessness.  Only then can we begin to love ourselves the way God does — perfectly. 

Experiencing Joy in the Messiness of Motherhood
"Is this all I'm meant to do? There must be more to this life?" A common question is heard among mothers in our culture.  Though desiring to be mothers, we might also yearn for something "more."  How do we find joy in the seemingly mundane tasks of motherhood while also developing our individual identities as women?  What are some ways we can truly embrace our roles as mothers, women and daughters of God?

The Power of Personal Prayer
Matthew 7:12 tells us if we ask, seek and knock we shall find answers to the questions in our lives.  What does it mean to ask, to seek and to knock?  What are the promises directly related to each action?  Through meaningful, personal prayer we can build a deeper relationship with our Father in Heaven and truly feel our prayers being answered.  

Ministering With Heart
Even the word “ministering” has become a stumbling block for many.  What keeps you from reaching out to those over whom you’ve been given stewardship?  Oftentimes, it’s the fear of something that keeps su stuck.  When we discover that love is at the center of our ministering efforts, our interactions become genuine, natural, and effortless.  For “perfect love casteth out all fear.” 

The Power of YOU (Especially for Youth)
What would the world be like without YOU?  Pause and really think about it, take this question seriously.  In this world of constant change and various voices, we are often afraid to be ourselves.  And yet, the world truly is a better place because YOU live in it.  The greatest power lies in finding your center and being who you are meant to be! 

A House of Learning: Philosophies, Fun, and Mindfulness
Homeschooling can feel overwhelming with many options available already busy moms.  With over 13 years of experience in home education, I can break down several different philosophies of homeschooling so you can decide for yourself what will work best for your family.  We will also discuss ways to keep the fun and joy of learning alive in your home and focus on mindfulness techniques so Mom can stay sane in the process.  

Leading Our Children to Christ
The life of a mom is unlike any other as we struggle to meet the many demands placed upon is each day.  Sometimes through all of this we forget the most basic and simple principles that truly have the power to show our children who Christ is and how He can be a part of their lives.

What is Perfect Love? 
The Lord has high expectations when He states, "Be ye therefore perfect."  This invitation can often leave us feeling overwhelmed.  Does the Lord really expect us to be perfect?  To answer this question we will contrast the world's expectations with the Lord's definition fo perfection.  As we do so we will come to understand that by accepting grace through Christ's atonement and learning how to love one another we can be perfect today.

*Mentoring Mothers was a group I started a few years ago (with the encouragement of a great friend) wherein we discuss principles that guide our families; such as order in the home, inspiring our children, family work, managing time, etc. We then use time to report on how we achieved our goals the month before and set new individual goals for the upcoming month.  This is a great tool for strengthening one another as mothers in a smaller setting and for those who have a like-minded purpose.  For more information or wanting help to start your own Mentoring Mothers group, please contact me.
