President Thomas S. Monson is one amazing man! I find strength and courage often in his words. Although my trials do not even compare to others i know that he is very aware of ALL that I am going through and will go through. He is aware of all of us and that brings me such great comfort. I hope whoever reads this will find the same comfort that I did. Read here
My Sis in Law Becky is one AMAZING women!!!! I've always known this but on this trip it was only magnified by her example!!! When we were sitting at Denny's the first night we got there Kiersten started crying cause her fingers were literally turning purple from swelling and they knew they were going to have to take her to the hospital but didn't know what to expect. Kiersten was worried as you can imagine and didn't want to go for fear that it would hurt or the dr.s would be mean! Becky consoled her and told her something that changed my way of looking at being a mom FOREVER!!! She told her that it was her job as the mom to help Kiersten not be afraid and to tell her that she would be ok cause that's what the mom does, they help their kids know it will be okay even if they really don't know! that the Dr's worked for her and she could fire them if she needed to and also the nurses! as she sat there in Denny's holding Kiersten even I felt better about the situation, and I was about to take 7 kids back to the Hotel, I really wasnt worried about that, but just prayed that all would be well with Kiersten and I knew with her mama by her side it all would be! I love you Bec

Blessings Will Come When We Make Our Home a Sanctuary
"Let us make our homes sanctuaries of righteousness, places of prayer, and abodes of love that we might merit the blessings that can come only from our Heavenly Father. We need His guidance in our daily lives."
“May we . . . demonstrate kindness and love within our own families. Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns and peace dwells.”
Thomas S. Monson,
