On Prayers v2

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for inventing Saturdays! Please bless mommy, daddy and…{long pause}….{deep sigh} and my sisters.

Please teach Big C how to be a bucket-FILLER, ‘cause she really needs to learn how. And bless my other sister M to play Littlest Pet Shop WITH me, instead of by herself, especially when she “borrows” MY pets.

I know they {sisters} are not perfect, but I thank you for giving them to me. Well, most of the time.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

On Stupid Questions

There’s no such thing as a stupid question.
Unless you’re a man.

{Activity} Making Book of Mormon Covers

This week’s fun activity for Family Home Evening (FHE) is creating beautiful covers for the Book of Mormon using scrapbook paper and materials.

My older daughters have scriptures they received when they were baptized, but my youngest still carts around a missionary copy and *really* wanted something prettier. I thought this tutorial might be useful for new converts as well who might still be saving up for a lifetime set of scriptures 🙂

On Spelling OK

Mommy? How do you spell OK?
It sounds like you say the ‘A’s name, so it *must* have one of those tricky silent ‘E’s!
