Happy Pink Saturday! – Pink Summer

Happy Pink Saturday!
It is hard to believe another summer has come and gone.
School will be starting soon and these hot days will soon be a memory.
I really love the simple joys of summer.

Parenting: Touching the Hearts of Our Youth

I know for a while now I have not been "there". With my ever daily battles with my physical body and health, I HAVE BECOME DISCONNTED IN SO MANY WAYS. Lost and lonely I would have to say have been the feelings I have been feeling lately. I know I need to do better, this was a great reminder.

"When suffering, we may in fact be nearer to God than we’ve ever been in our entire lives. That knowledge can turn every such situation into a would-be temple.

Regarding our earthly journey, the Lord has promised, “I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up” (D&C 84:88). That is an everlasting declaration of God’s love and care for us, including—and perhaps especially—in times of trouble."

Oh how dreamy it would be to be in New York with all the other Women/Mommy bloggers. But the reality is I'm not. Really my efforts in growing my blog has really just happened recently. I have found so many amazing blogs!! I love entering the giveaways and have started having my own.    

Here are the questions we want you to answer:

When did you start blogging?

Jan 2008

Why did you start blogging?

I really started to share events with my family. Then I soon found out it was a way to share my thoughts and feelings, share great ideas and meet other great women/mommy bloggers. We are all doing the best we can, I love learning and sharing with each other.

What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
