You know that we love to share an inspiring printable with you the first Sunday of each month and I’m so happy it’s my turn so I can wish you Happy Easter Sunday! I sure hope that your Easter has been wonderful so far. Mine has been spent with family and friends being reminded of the amazing gift our Savior gave to us.
I found this quote:
“At this Easter season we are reminded of why we love Him and of the promise He makes to His faithful disciples to become His beloved friends. The Savior made that promise and told us how, in our service to Him, He comes to us. … ‘Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love’ (D&C 6:20). I experienced the joy of coming closer to the Savior and of His coming closer to me most often through simple acts of obedience to the commandments.”
I loved the scripture quoted and wanted to have it to remind me that I can be encircled in the arms of His love. That thought is so beautiful to me. I hope you enjoy it too and have made the printable available below.

Sharing a little Sunday Goodness today! I love this quote from LDS President David O. McKay. I truly believe it too! I know I feel happiest when I am serving others or striving to make those around me happy.

Back in the day I was the queen of friendship bracelets. I remember spending my summers sitting with my sister and best friend working on the coolest bracelets ever! But this is one style of friendship bracelet we didn’t know about back then – the Jellyfish Friendship Bracelet. It’s call the Jellyfish Bracelet because the embroidery floss hangs down, like jellyfish tentacles while you’re making it.
It’s a little different type of bracelet because it uses this handy dandy wheel. I designed one and cut it of cardstock out on my Cricut Explore (using the pen and cut).
You can download the svg template to import into Cricut Design Space or use in Silhouette Studio.
Tie the strands together, leaving a tail so you’ll be able to tie it once finished, and run them through the center hole.
The wheel has 8 slits, so leaving the one with START above it empty, run 1 strand through each of the slits. Then, beginning with the Start slit, or the empty one, count left 3 strands. Which is the left mint strand here.
Take that strand and move it into the empty slot.
Then rotate the wheel so the empty slot is once again at the bottom, and count up 3 strands.
Move it down to the empty slot, and continue turning the wheel and counting up 3 strands. That’s all there is to it!
Soon you’ll have a bracelet emerging in the center of the Jellyfish!
My cute niece made her first YouTube video showing how to make these. Please hop over and show her some love!
Add this image/quote to any photo album or scrapbook! It is the perfect quote to go with documenting your sweet life! This is also a great gift idea for loved ones. I made this in Cricut design space and cut out the vinyl with my Cricut Explore. It’s the perfect DIY Photo Album Cover!
I think this quote is perfect for the first Sunday in January. Most things in life don’t happen immediately. I know the internet has made us want everything now, but the most important things in life are build, “Slowly by slowly, small by small.” Don’t get discouraged, and don’t be hard on yourself. Just do your best and work everyday and soon enough you can reach your goals.

This is the 4th year we’ve shared the Scripture Reading Chart and many of you have been asking for one for 2015!
You can read Kirsten’s experiences and advice for 2012, 2013, and 2014. If this is your first year using the chart, here are some tips to help it become successful for your family!
SECRETS TO OUR SUCCESS:
BE ACCOUNTABLE: This is the BEST SECRET of them all, I tell ya…use this one page CALENDAR CHART that represents the whole year!!!!!! A gap on our reading chart iss enough to muster up the umph to read each night, and how we didn’t anticipate that we would be motivated by that, but it worked.
USE COLORED STICKERS & make it a game: This was also a main key for us. The child that was the most well-behaved got to choose the sticker for the chart that night. This was a major motivator for our kids.
CHOOSE THE SAME TIME EACH DAY TO READ: For us, the time of day we chose wasn’t exactly at a specific specific time, but right before bed which was around the same time each night. If you can choose the same time each day that works best for your family, you are really setting yourselves up for success.
KEEP YOUR EXPECTATIONS LOW: Ok this is one of those times that low expectations are GREAT. The kids are going to be rowdy, mean, ornery, and not want to do it at times…hang in there :). There should be a level of respect while reading, from my point of view, but it’s not going to be perfect. Sometimes the best things are HARD, until it’s a habit.
Besides daily scripture reading you can also keep track of your Family Home Evenings with the hearts and temple attendance with the months at the bottom.
This post is part of a challenge to #ShareGoodness. We hope that you are able to find inspiration no matter what religion you are. We just want to put more goodness out there. Please be respectful of us and our beliefs as you comment, as we would be for you. After all, we LOVE our readers!
It seems like everywhere I turn these days, someone I love and care about is struggling and going through trials. And they are all different. Some are physical while others are, mental or emotional. Life is just hard sometimes.
There are many things that ground me and the most important one is my faith in Jesus Christ. That he is my redeemer and my savior.
I found this quote, “Don’t let your faith dim in the storm of life.” I then went to read the whole talk given by Bruce D. Porter titled, Beautiful Mornings. It’s is a very inspiring read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Here’s one more quote from him that I loved.
“Trials may come, and we may not understand everything that happens to us or around us. But if we humbly, quietly trust in the Lord, He will give us strength and guidance in every challenge we face. When our only desire is to please Him, we will be blessed with a deep inner peace.”

I love this quote from this month’s Visiting Teaching message. How true it is that we can’t solve problems that our friends may be dealing with, but we can offer our love and support to let them know we care. I love that it talks about different ways we may reach someone and the different effects a that laugh, hug, or helping hands can have.Here are a few other uplifting quotes from friends:
