Commitments


*I will be chatting live from 10:00 to Noon MDT,
 to talk about the Book of Mormon and the Mormon faith.
Come join me!
If I have sent you a copy of the Book of Mormon
and if you have questions about it, lets chat!
Or you can request a copy of the Book of Mormon from me HERE.*

Mr. Nielson and I took Jane on a little winter hike on beloved
 Old Willow Lane near our home. 
It was brisk out but absolutely beautiful. 
 We walked arm and arm talking about school, her violin lessons, friends,
 and her new Christmas presents.  
We discussed in length about her favorite Christmas gift; the 
fairy village, in which we have big plans for come Spring. 
Jane is adorable and I can't to see what she will be and do when
she is older.  I have a feeling it's going to be something amazing. 
I love these simple one-on-one quiet moments with my children.
It's good to catch up with them and have their full attention, 
and they have my full attention.
I think one of my 2016 commitments will be to spend time more
private time with each Little Nie. 
Mr. Nielson and I decided instead of calling them our 2016 goals, we will
simply call them our commitments. I like the idea of committing to something,
It makes it more resolute and reachable.
A goal for me is to someday ski in Canada (Whistler, to be exact)
 and I think commitments are daily actions. 
 Things like; reading my scriptures, hiking the Y, attending church 
every Sunday even if I am out of town, 
and spending time alone with each of my children.
