I yelled at Ben pretty bad last night.
My blunt trait is strong to a fault, and sometimes, I have a tendency to overdrive my point too deep.
Like, if he did something that upset me, I’m gunna let him know, but not just know, really know, hahah. So dumb. Not always!!! But sometimes.
(can I blame it on being a virgo….lolololol jkjk). And yet regardless of how I acted, (or overreacted), Ben apologized.
HE apologized, even though I was the one yelling. Which immediately made m
I JUST got baptized, and I still didn’t know much about anything as far as the gospel and how things worked: like prayer, I still didn’t even know if I was praying “right,” haha. And I heard an experience from another member which actively confused me up until recently – ya know, 8 years later. She said a lady and her husband went to the temple and separately, they both received the same revelation that they were pregnant with a boy and they were supposed to name him a specif
😞AHHHHH man, I had a LONG day the other day where–one thing after another, it seemed– went wrong or got worst. I, myself, didn’t do a single thing to try and make it better, I just let it happen and even expected more things to go wrong. I watched the clock, sloowwwlllyyy counting down until the day ended. 8:30 pm, I was sitting at the kitchen table typing some thoughts. Ben grabbed my arm to try and pull me up. I fought against his attempt to make me do anything than what I
I GET IT. I totally, 100% get it. It’s easy to feel on the verge of losing our mind b/c OH MY GOSH, if ONE MORE PERSON posts that they are going to Disneyland for the ump-teenth time— or WHAT ON EARTH, seriously? How are they going out of the country again?….Must be nice, huh. …😒 Seems like everyone else is always out exploring or renovating or up-sizing or accomplishing & you just look at yourself…sitting in your home… with things going very differently than what you’re see
[Don’t feel like reading? Listen to the AUDIO version, HERE.] “I was sitting in a lesson at church and the teacher said that all people with tattoos are bad people.” I have received WAY too many emails like this. This is a quote from an email I got just this morning. WHY? I thought we were past this! I thought we were more intelligent than this? I thought we were more loving than this? I thought we followed Christ better than this? And no, this is not about tattoos, and no,
I WROTE A BOOK WITH MY HUSBAND! Quick Links: Amazon| Deseret Book | Audio | eBook Everything we learned was poured into this thing. It’s a whole lot of the funny, the embarrassing, the honest, and the uplifting. We wrote this with the intention of it being for singles and newlyweds, but we are so completely surprised that almost all of our feedback, reviews, and comments are from marriage veterans of 20+ years, and wow has it been overwhelmingly amazing to read their respons
Don’t let people tell you marriage becomes boring.
Don’t let people tell you kids ruin or take away from things.
Don’t let people’s comments of “once you get married you can’t…” & “once you have kids you won’t be able to…”
Because they simply.ARE.NOT.true. [Don’t feel like reading? Listen to my audio version, HERE] I absolutely love everything about having kids. Adventures have doubled since we had them, because we chose to plan it that way. And I, more than anything, LOVE
PET PEEVE: Forgive me for feeling completely confused, (& hurt) when I get messages saying how they hate seeing my pictures because of coming off that my life is “perfect,” but admitting to never reading anything I’ve written. For the past 6 yrs I have consistently wrote about the times I have felt ugly, when I felt I wasn’t good enough, when I’ve felt abandoned by God, unemployed times, when my engagement failed, family turmoil, times of anguish, times of death and loss, tim
January 2017 Just recently I had a member email me telling me I should end my life because of how I looked. He said I’m a bad person and God could never love someone that looked like me.

Free downloads available, too] And this wasn’t the first or last email I received from someone telling me I should take my life because of who I am or what I’m trying to do.

It wasn't because I was going on a mission, and it wasn't because I was getting married, (not saying those aren't awesome and just as important reasons, just as long as you're going for you and for the right reasons). I went because I wanted to go on my own, I went because I wanted to be closer to God and s
