Project Life: Week 14

I finished week 14 tonight. 

I love page 2 of this layout. It summarizes the knowledge and inspiration gained from a weekend watching LDS General Conference. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we gather twice a year to listen to the words of the prophet and apostles. I know that the words these men and women speak are true.  I feel so blessed to live in this technological age where we can listen to the words of the prophet and apostles from the comfort of our living room.

If you follow Deseret Book on Instagram or Facebook they post these cool graphics that relate back to the talks that are given at General Conference. I simply snap screen shots of these on my iPhone and then later clip the screen shot to the masks in my 9 square template in Photoshop Elements.

Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to all of the women who have mothered my over the years. There have been many of you. My own mother, mother-in-law, grandmas (many generations of them), aunts, primary teachers, Young Women's Leaders, Relief Society sisters, and work moms. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures of my favorite moms:

My mom (Madge), with baby Dayna on her lap with me next to them.


My husband (as a baby) and his mom (Dina).


My Grandma Black (my mom's mom) with Mom and Uncle Wayne.


My Grandma Joyce (Dad's mom) with her daughter Echo.



"Mothers are the moving instruments in the hands of Providence 
and are the machinery that give zest to the whole man, 
and guide the destinies and lives of men and nations upon the earth."
 - Brigham Young -

One Year Ago

I wrote this before my mom's birthday, but didn't share it at the time. I thought I could share it today now that all of the firsts are over.

One year ago we were scrambling last minute to make her birthday special. 

This year we are doing the same.

I just ordered sky lanterns. I can now cross that off of my to do list.

Tomorrow I need to make a few phone calls to party guests
(we need to work around Easter celebrations this year).

And a most important decision must be made between cake & cupcakes.

We will celebrate.
We will celebrate her life.
We will celebrate her love.
And we will celebrate that through God's great plan she lives,
we will all live, and we will be together, a family forever, someday.
