This year I will not be making any resolutions. No promises broken and no guilt for resolutions not kept.  I will take Ashley's advice and just pick a word. One word to inspire me this year. One word to uplift me when things get hard. My word is Grow. Just four little letters, yet they bring me so much encouragement. I wan to learn so much this year and of course I want to share that knowledge with you all. I want to grow as a photographer because my skills are very little. I want to grow as a cook. I want to be healthy and share that with my family. I wan to be the wife and mother that God wants me to be. I want to be a believer and an example of Christ's love to all those around me. This year I will grow in my love for others, my husband, my children, myself, and most importantly for my Saviour.

Here's to 2013. It is going to the best!

  6. I agree! Beautiful hair. I love your blog! Thank you for all the tips, encouragement, and things you help us learn to be better mothers, wives, latter-day saints, women, etc.

    This may sound random, but is there any way you could share a post about diy hair dying? I think you said you color your own hair, and I would love to try it myself and save some money! :)

  11. just found your site thanks to pinterest and love it! I, too, opted for a one word "resolution" this year and it is- better. I want to be a better person, make better choices, be more engaged with life. So far 2013 has shown me that life can be taken away too quickly so I need to be better at remembering that.

  12. That's so cool! (I'm getting to this post late but loved your featured image so I clicked). I guess we get tired of letting ourselves down when we don't hit everything on our lists? I'm with you on a very simple mantra; my word this year is "Remember". Ii love that you gave this post some thought and shared it. Lynaea @ EverydayBloom.com

  14. I am so encouraged!! Last summer my family and I did an experiment (my husband was gone alot, but he joined in too). We decided to see if we could save money by not buying anything in a can, box, or package. We also watched our consumption of energy in the house(laundry, videos, computer time...) Not buying anything in a box, can, or package really opened up our eyes to our "consumer happiness" Biggest eye opener.... toilet paper, napkin, and paper towels. I know we just met, and this is TMI, but I make my own toilet paper out of 4x4 old flannel. Cloth baby wipes gave me the idea, then I researched it and found others doing the same - family cloth. My husband named ours something else, he's Army and had to dignify himself with a manly name, I'll spare you the details. In the end... We saved over $400 that summer!! We went on a family vacation!! God has blessed me with being able to stay home with my 3 kids. I feel like my job is to make that decision one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made!

    So encouraged this morning-thanks!! Keep up the amazing work you are doing. God has truly blessed you!!
