Ministering has always been a part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus, as our perfect example, was a friend to all. He was inclusive and spent time to reach out specifically to individuals that needed love and care. He was a minster. He took good care of his friends and family. We can become more like him, as we learn how to minister as he did.

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.

There are lots of ideas online of ways to ask to school dances, but what about ways to ANSWER to school dances?? ‘Or so she says…’ to the rescue! My oldest son is a sophomore and just got asked to his first school dance, the Fall Ball. The girl that asked him did it in such a cute way. Now, it’s his turn to answer. It sounds like the ‘answering’ part isn’t a tradition in all states, from what I’ve gathered. But, it definitely is a tradition here in Utah. Simply saying ‘yes’ is way too boring. It needs to be clever and fun, and we’ve had lots of fun coming up with these 25 creative ways to answer to school dances.
