  101. I am expecting baby #3 in a little over a month. Babies #1 and 2 will turn two on SUNDAY! Needless to say, I've had my share of struggling mommy moments. And I have struggled with the birth of this new little one. So I am feeling right now like this will answer prayers and help me keep my focus, quiet my fears, flood my heart with peace and excitement instead of anxiety about all the changes and how we are going to handle them AS A FAMILY. So, thank you! I only wish I had been a part of getting it started somehow! What an example!

  115. What part of the Proclamation don't I LOVE? My two favorite parts of it are the man and women being created equal in the eyes of God, and the part of Husband and Wife, being together forever with there families, raising there children together with good values and beliefs.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I entered in Coco's as well!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I'd like to see some discussion regarding the separate roles of mothers and fathers and how they are obliged to help each other as equal partners. :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. I'd like to see a lot on this next month-

    Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other...

    -because I'm not seeing enough of it in the world and I can see the hurt from the lack of it.

    So glad it's almost September!

    ReplyDelete
  119. What of the many aspects of the Proclamation could be talked about. In our family we are going to focus on the plan of our Heavenly Father starting with the preexistence and the creation of the world. It is an essential part to the plan. Without this beautiful world we wouldn't have the amazing bodies and experiences to make choices. Another aspect I think would be interesting to learn about is how as a mother or a father we can believe what we are doing is approved of by our Father in Heaven. From listening to mothers and knowing myself, I doubt that I do enough or what my children need each day and feel guilty at the end of the day for NOT doing enough. There are my 2 cents.

  129. I love my family, even all our extended family, and ward family. I think it is only when you truly feel in your heart that we are all brothers and sisters, no matter where in the world we live, that you start to appreciate what "family" really means. I really like reading your comments, and they often give me food for thought.
