I've been reading about parenting today, because one can never study too much when it comes to raising children in my opinion. We're LDS, so obviously I want to study what the scriptures and our prophets say about parenting. Check out this great resource of LDS teachings HERE. Joseph and I made a goal to live our life as if we had full custody of our children, hence our family theme for the school year (see theme HERE), scripture study, prayer, hard work, and fun of course! We feel if we're living as if we have our children with us full time, it's easier to involve them in our life when they visit, and when we skype with them. We miss our children a lot since having moved to Texas, but haven't missed dealing with their mother! Why do some ex-wives have cause so much drama? I'll never understand it."As we ponder the messages we have heard, may we resolve to do a little better than we have done in the past. May we be kind and loving to those who do not share our beliefs and our standards. The Savior brought to this earth a message of love and goodwill to all men and women. May we ever follow His example."—Thomas S. Monson,
The quote above, was President Monson's closing remarks at this October's General Conference, and I loved it! It's always a good reminder to be kind and loving!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
Have a great week too!
