I have to say we enjoy our time in the library as much as we enjoy the books we check out to read at home. Next time you’re in need of a time-filler, or even a Friday night activity hit up your local library. Find a cozy corner with a stack of books and just read! Then get another stack to check out and take home with you. So many books, so little time!! Happy reading!
In the story of Alice and Wonderland, Alice comes to a fork in the road. She asks the Cheshire Cat, “Which way shall I go?” The cat asks her in return, “Where are you going?” Lost and wandering, Alice simply said, “I don’t know!” Listen to this wise council from Cheshire Cat, “If you don’t know where you are going, then it doesn’t matter which path you choose.”
Don’t wander through life like Alice. With a goal in mind, we are able to travel to the places where we want to go and achieve things that were never before possible. Think about where you want to be and who you want to be! Set goals that will take you there.
This is the first year in many years that I’ve had a child at the public school. 5 are at home with me, being homeschooled, but my 8th and 10th grader are now attending the public school, and it’s going great. I love homeschooling, but it’s also been a perfect time for both of the oldest to transition. A lot of things are new to me, such as having to think about their bodies being fed, outside of the home. Most of the time they eat school lunch, but they’re already getting burned out and have been itching for something new, or something from home. So, I’ve been looking into making lunches for them, at least for some of the days, and I’ve found some awesome top-rated school lunch products that I’ve been contemplating.

We may not always know when our friends or family are feeling sad. People are good at pretending and putting on a show of happiness. Remember, we don’t have signs up declaring to the world what troubles are going on inside. Here is a little object lesson that helps to demonstrate the need to show kindness always.

I wish I could tell you that I have some great ideas to take all of the stress out of planning and packing school lunch…I don’t. What I am offering is a few ideas of how to use their lunch to reconnect with your kids. Once a day, your child will open that box or bag from home to fill up on the nutritious foods that you’ve packed for them. You can use this opportunity to not only connect with their stomachs, but also to reconnect with their minds and hearts.
When faced with a job, chore, or trial, we can choose to be like Nephi. He was a man who would “Go and do.” He didn’t murmur or complain. Because he made a habit of being a man of action and faith his life was blessed with joy and prosperity. When we look at our wooden bows, we can remember to emulate the Nephi the Book of Mormon prophet.
Take a moment to use your powerful words to remind your family how much you love them. Point out their strengths and thank them for participating. Bear your testimony about how clean, positive, and uplifting language can invite the Holy Ghost into your life and make a positive impact for good!
