Tips and Tricks:
When putting sprinkles on cupcakes it is easiest to frost the cupcake and then dip it into a bowl of sprinkles, rather then trying to just sprinkle it on the top of each cupcake.

On my mind:
Everything I still need to get done around the house today

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
I have been thinking a lot of the story of Samuel the Lamanite. He was such a brave & courageous prophet. Samuel began preaching in the land of Zarahemla. He preached repentance for many days, but he was thrown out of the city. He was about to go home, but then God told him to return and prophesy to the people. He returned to Zarahemla, but the people would not let him into the city. So he climbed up on a wall and prophesied. Samuel said that within 400 years heavy destruction will come upon the people in the form of the sword, famine, and pestilence unless they repent and have faith in Jesus Christ. What an amazing person to know what God wanted you to do and even when faced with arrows he stood on that wall and shouted Gods word. Oh how I wish I can be more like Samuel each and every day. I found this picture while googling and it absolutely displays his act of absolutely faith in the Lord.

 and on that note...may we be courageous today and have faith in Heavenly Father to provide for us. Happy Monday Everyone!


  1. Thanks for posting my blog! <3

    That's a cute picture of Libby, lol.

    I think I might take this and repost it on mine (with different answers, of course ;-)

    Have fun with the home schooling! I'll be sure to check back and see how it's going (sounds like it would be really fun, actually)

  2. Oh, and I wanted to add -- it wasn't hot this morning! It's BEAUTIFUL outside! I can't wait until I can quit because it would have been a wonderful "let's go to redrock and have a picnic" day :-D
