Live in the Moment

Author Anna Quindlen reminds us not to rush past the fleeting moments. She said: “The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less”(Loud and Clear [2004], 10–11).

Happy Easter! #becauseHelives

Happy Easter, everyone! I am so grateful for this Easter morning when we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I know He lives, and that #becauseHelives I can be with my family forever. I am so grateful for His Gospel, and the blessings it brings to my life. Easter this year happens to fall on our Church’s General Conference. If you would like to watch conference with us you can go right {HERE}. :)
