Family Scriptures of the Week Printable

I have had a couple friends ask me for my list of family scriptures we use as a family every week so I thought I would make up a list of our weekly family scriptures we’ve used the past year or so. By “weekly” I mean sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly, sometimes every other week, sometimes a month and a half. 🙂 It depends how well my kiddos are memorizing the scripture before we switch it, and how well I am remembering to practice it with them. 🙂

Here’s what I do….and, I am super fancy {NOT}. I just write our scripture with a chalk pen on our microwave and whenever we are ready to change it, I wipe it off with a wet paper towel and we’re on to the next one. {thankfully our house we’re in now has a black microwave which is way easier to read}

6 Month Pregnancy Update

Before I know it, baby #4 will be close to his arrival. For some reason, I was thinking I had 4.5 months left and as of a week ago I realized I had just over 3 months. {which I guess makes sense since I’ve been feeling LARGE and IN CHARGE lately}

Now, I am literally 3 months away [well as of yesterday actually]!!!!! I can’t believe it.

Let me give a little recap here…..We are in our 1st year of residency [by we I mean my hubby, I always just say we because we are in this together] and were not expecting or planning on another baby. We weren’t not planning because of lack of desire, but because of some congenital kidney problems I have {to be safe since problems often arise in pregnancy}…anyway, lo and behold B and I went on a hot date and we were driving there and I felt N-A-U-S-E-O-U-S!!!! I told B I just hadn’t eaten for a long time and thought maybe I just was car sick sort of a thing. We got to the top of the town at this restaurant overlooking the city and I told him on the elevator- “I have to eat, like NOW!

Changing a Bad Mommin’ Day to a Good One

I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes I have just a plain hard day [usually my fault I’m sure].

In fact, in December I found that I had about a solid 5 days where I felt I was in survival mode and had the sad and honest realization that I just plain wasn’t enjoying my kids like I normally do for those solid 5 days and felt horrible about it. Perhaps it was the holiday craziness, the 2 cases of strep, the mister being on trauma that month, who knows! However, sure enough it was wearing on me and the kids were sadly the victims of their stressed momma.

So, I decided to do a couple things differently to try and snap myself out of it and cherish the moment. Sure enough, it worked!

Hopefully these little tricks will help you change a bad day to a good one on “one of THOSE days.”
