Dear friends,
If you read my blog expecting a masterpiece then
I fear you will be sorely disappointed.
I really wish I was a fantastic writer with seamless
 paragraphs, spelling perfection, and excellent grammar.
That is truly something I pray for.  

 I will persist and continue to write and do my best
so my children will know who I am, what we do as a family,
and most importantly what we stand for.
I hope we as sisters, mothers, and friends will keep 
encouraging each other to rise and succeed
even when we don't see eye-to-eye on every topic like
politics, religion, child rearing, or how we spend our time.
I hope we find reasons to support, respect, and love
regardless of our mistakes-in every sense of that word!

Plus, being mean is so exhausting.

Teaching from RMN:
Endure and Be Lifted Up, April, 1997
"You will govern yourself not by someone else’s set of rules but
 by revealed principles of truth.
Your responsibility to endure is uniquely yours.
 But you are never alone. I testify that the lifting power of the Lord 
can be yours if you will “come unto Christ” and “be perfected in him.” 
You will “deny yourselves of all ungodliness.” 
And you will “love God with all your might, mind and strength.”
