Welcome to PB and Joy...trying to spread some joy onto motherhood. I am a stay at home mom with a wonderful husband and 4 beautiful kids...Kaylee (9), Aaron (7), Nathan (3), and Travis (1).
I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS, or Mormon). My family and my faith are the most important things in my life.
One of my favorite scripture stories is when Peter tries to walk on water to get to Christ. At first Peter was fine, but as he noticed what was going on around him and saw the waves and wind he became afraid, began to doubt, and sank. He called out for Jesus to save him. Christ reached down and brought Peter out of the storm. I love this scripture because life may be going along just fine, but then the "waves" start crashing in around us and we may lose our focus on the Savior for just a moment as we get caught up in our problems. When we pray and ask for help, our Savior will be there to lift us up out of our stormy times by giving us strength and courage and comfort to calm our story seas. When you feel like you are sinking; reach up!
