Thank Goodness for Kids

In the past year, I have never worried so much about anything as I did the kids. My biggest worry was, "How can I do this on my own?" "I'm totally going to screw these kids up!" "I'm not smart enough to be the only parent to these kids!" ... You can probably imagine all the questions and concerns that I have had for my little sweeties.

Then one day I sat down with a very wise friend, and I voiced all my concerns to him. He said, "What makes you think that Heavenly Father loves those kids less than you love them?" Hummmmmmmmmm, well that sort of puts everything into prospective doesn't it. Why would Heavenly Father let HIS children falter and fail just because they had the misfortune to have to grow up without a father in a single parent home? Heavenly Father would give these little people extra blessing to survive in spite of me. In fact, Heavenly Father would send this clueless mother three of his best little spirits to teach her, and help her along her own journey. Thank Goodness for Kids!


  1. You have such a wonderful outlook on life!!! And your kids are stinkin cute!!!

  2. You know how much I LOVE your kids but I have to tell you today Averie stole my heart. She is too cute!! She spent the entire time in primary playing with Matthew. It was so cute. She must have emptied his diaper bag 3 or 4 times which was all good because you know what would be in his diaper bag but toys for him treats for him an extra pair of clothes for him diapies, wipies and a pair of Lindsay's underwear!!! SOOOO FUNNY I didn't even know they were in there till she pulled them out and put them on Matthew's head. I LOVE HER!!!!! And she is very lucky to have such an incredible mom!!!

  3. I love your kids too!! not only do they help you...they are great teachers for the rest of us!!

    I think I've said this to you before, but those kiddos of yours have stronger testimonies of the plan of salvation than some adults I know. They're just so matter of fact about it.

    I remember at first being afraid to say anything around them that might remind them of their dad...but I quickly got over that!! Amazing what kids teach us!!

    oh...and that attitude of mine that you commented on my blog've helped me learn that. Thanks Lisa :)

  4. Those awesome kids have an incredible Mom. Don't sell yourself short. You are doing a great job. And you are not alone on this journey. Our Heavenly Father NEVER leaves us alone.

  5. And by the way, Love the new look!!!
