Women's Conference

I had the most amazing opportunity to go to Women's Conference with some very sweet women. Special shout-out to my mother for tending my children for six hours while I went. Thanks Mom! I couldn't have done it without your help. Also, thanks to Rachael for inviting me. It was my first time and I didn't even know what it was, but now I will never forget it. The opening speaking was Sheri Dew. Her talk was "Awake, Arise, and Come unto Christ" Some of the things that I took from her talk were that women truly are the influence of the world. We are Heavenly Father "secret weapon" we are the heart of the Father's plan. If the women of the world fall the human race falls. We cannot fail our family, our neighborhoods, our society, our countries. Everyday in our lives as women we need to talk, walk, rejoice in Christ and have our action reflect that. She said that as members of the LDS church we need to be the women that are strong enough to choose holiness above the world. The thing that I think I needed to hear the most was that I need to take time for personal worship. She made a statement "you can't draw water from an empty well" and that is so true. If we are truly to be the key to our Heavenly Fathers plan then we need to have "water" to let our families draw from. I am going to make the time to do that. I know Christ lives and loves me and I am so grateful for that knowledge; it makes life worth living. I am truly happy with that knowledge in my life. If you ever get a chance to go to Women's Conference GO!!! It will be the best thing you can do with your time. Thanks!

Dinosaur Time

We have a dinosaur museum close to our house and just love to go. We went with my parents and Derek and Trisha's family. We had so much fun looking and interacting with all the exhibits.

There were lots of very interesting dinosaur's but
T-Rex is always a favorite.

Emma sure loves to have Grandma and Grandpa
at her side.
