Even though Lily is 20 months old, I can hardly believe I can say "my girls". I love having two girls! Here are a few pictures that our friend, Becky took in the park.
Jessica's teeth are starting to fill in. I'm going to miss that toothless grin! She actually let me blow dry her hair and curl flip it out. She hasn't let me do it since, but at least she knows I won't burn her with the curling iron (her dad accidentally did, and now she is totally gun shy!)
Here is little Miss Lily Pie. She has such a personality! I wish you could see the funny faces she makes and listen to her snort like a pig!
She seems the opposite of Jessica when it comes to the hair-thing. She is constantly bringing me things to put in her hair and she leaves it in most of the time. They have very different personalities. Jessica is more shy and not very affectionate. Lily so far, is very outgoing and very affectionate.
They absolutely adore one another! Lily is starting to play dolls with Jess now, and Jess is always dressing Lily up in all of her pretty dresses. They put on the Nutcracker the other day and were dancing ballerinas! I'm so thankful for a sister for Jess. It used to be Andrew and Jacob that she dressed in the ballerina suits! LOL!
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
