Every mother teaches her children, whether you have just a few minutes a day or 24/7 to be teaching, you CAN and DO teach your Children!

This is just a little notebook tucked away on the web for all the little things I'm learning as I teach my children, but mostly learn from them, and especially the things I wish I could have known 6 children ago! Becoming a Mother is such a beautiful and strenuous process that unfolds line upon line.

Enjoy and please feel free to contribute thoughts, links, and ideas you have or find!

What comprises True Joy?

"Peace, serenity, trust, security, happiness ...

 these wonderful emotions are what comprise true joy... and they cannot exist in a heart that is not absolutely faithful."..."If an individual is not experiencing these sweet emotions, then I don't see how it is possible for him to be experiencing joy."  "And of course the opposite is also true, when such emotions are lacking, then joy is out the window and the individual feels only misery."  Girl at the crossing. ~ Blaine M Yorgason

As Mother's and Father's what more can we hope for for our children?  "men are, that they might have joy" 2 Ne 2:25.  And yet that joy sometimes seems swallowed up in the busyness of life and sometimes men seek after the wrong things that do not bring true joy.  How to get it back again?  Well it seems that a successful business has to "brand" itself with ~3 motto words and then work with those words always in the forefront of all they do.   It seems wise that a successful family would "brand" themselves with special words that make up who they are and all that they want to be.  I think I'm going to make up a nice design with these words to hang up and be able to see everyday, so that I can keep them in the forefront of all I do as a mother to brand these emotions into our everyday lives, so that we might have joy.

Every child and every adult is individual and different! When you are doing your best and seeking inspiration as to what is best for your child(ren) you will be given the guidance that you and they need. It likely will be quite different than what I or someone else is doing, but you need to do what is right and best for your child. I hope that some of my experiences can help someone on their quest to learn how to become all that they can become, I am glad that I have recorded them!

Please join in and share thoughts, tips, and things that will help uplift and enrich mothers, children, and families!
