Why This Spray Bottle Is One of My Favorite Things That I Have Bought Online…

I have had this spray bottle for over a year now and I use it EVERY single day!

I love this spray bottle!

This spray bottle is a continuing mist spray bottle.

Here are ways you will love and utilize this spray bottle:

  1. Little children’s’ hair. This spray bottle is wonderful for little kids hair because it sprays the hair down quickly. I love this spray bottle for my kids’ hair because little kids tend to have fine hair, and wetting the hair down quickly can make the hair more manageable to style. After using this spray bottle, there is no going back!
  2. Watering plants: This spray bottle could also be used to water plants, and it works very efficiently!
  3. Cleaning and Wiping down counters: This spray bottle can be great to use when cleaning and can help the cleaning process be more productive.

Sunday Thoughts: Why Serving Others is Key

This quote is very insightful and impactful in many ways:

It’s interesting that of all the things SERVICE truly does uplift us human beings when we are in the depths of despair.

I have thought about this a lot, and analyzed it for years.

Why Service?

I believe it actually goes deeper than being selfless.

Yes serving others is a selfless act, therefore, service helps us to forget about our own worries and concerns and helps us to re-focus on something else.

And yet, even more than selflessness…I believe service is at the root of who we are and what we are becoming.

What is the ultimate goal?

It is to be Christlike.

Christ served others his entire life. In fact, His entire meaning and mission on this earth was to serve us all—to the ultimate degree.

Service helps us to step into the direction of our Savior. Service helps us to grow and to discipline ourselves.

I know for me personally, service opportunities don’t always come at the most convenient time.

However, I believe sometime we are tested with service opportunities. Are we going to jump at the opportunity to serve when it seems complicated, or are we going to wait ’til service is more convenient?

As we strive to be closer to Christ, we realize that service is truly the key to happiness.

And of course personal growth is important in this life, but isn’t serving others and uplifting others perhaps the best type of personal growth out there?

I believe if the world could have this viewpoint, so many of our world problems could be solved.

Instead of wallowing in our disparities, if we turned to service among our fellow men, what a happier and brighter world it would be.

So I challenge you just as I am challenging myself, next time you feel a bit down, or frustrated, forgot your OWN issue, and think of someone you can serve.

I think you will be amazed and the lives blessed by turning to service.

And I know you will feel closer to Christ as you serve his fellow men.

A Book I’m Excited to Finally Start Reading!

I love to read any type of self-help books.

This book “More Than A Body,” is one I can’t wait to read!

I just ordered this book on Amazon and goodness I’m excited to jump into reading it.

(this post has affiliate links. That means that I get commission from the links you click but of course at no cost to you.)

I have been following the authors Lexie & Lindsay Kite for years and I love all their insight on body image.

The authors have their doctorate degrees and have a vast knowledge on the topic of body image.

I feel like body image doesn’t just have to be for girls .. it affects men too.

This was a book I knew I’d want to mark up and re-read so buying it was worth every penny.

As a mother to young kids , I want to be able to teach my children how to have a healthy body image.

I also want to lead by example by having a healthier body image myself…. It’s a journey I’m on.

You should join me in reading this book! I think this book will be very beneficial in many ways.

Enjoy your reading !

The Best Blender Salsa/Gluten-Free

Salsa is such a great snack when you have to eat gluten-free.

Most salsas are gluten free, even better, when you make it yourself, it can be guaranteed to be gluten-free!

Over the years I have been working on a blender salsa that tastes great, and is quick and easy to make.

I use cherry tomatoes in this particular recipe.

This recipe serves up to 4 people, but you can simply double or triple the recipe if you need to feed a larger crowd.

Even better?

You can blend up this salsa in under ten minutes, which is a win at our house!

Let me know if you end up making this recipe, and I hope you enjoy it!

INGREDIENTS :

-1 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes

-1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

-1/8 onion or 2 strands of green onion optional

-handful of cilantro

-1 teaspoon cumin

-1 teaspoon salt

-1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2-1 jalapeno (1 whole jalapeño will provide medium-hot heat)

Great salsa– and there are many options for gluten-free tortilla chips!

Instructions:

  1. Wash all vegetables well.
  2. Blend ingredients as you go.
  3. Enjoy!

Sunday Thoughts On Imperfections…

I love this quote by Elder Uchtdorf:

This quote is a reminder that mistakes come with moving forward. Mistakes come with learning new things.

I have only been a parent for 6 years now … and goodness I have made some mistakes.

Yes, parenting has been new territory for my husband and me, but we are constantly trying to learn and grow as we raise our children.

I feel like often times we beat ourselves up too much when we make mistakes… when in reality, the mistakes are what form us to be better.

Every baseball player strikes out, every runner loses a race at times, all people make mistakes.

I’m learning to NOT focus so intensely on those mistakes, but to more so, brush ourselves off, learn, and keep trying.

Heavenly Father knows mistakes are part of our journey… he provided the atonement for us to lean on always, and what a blessing it is to be able to pray to our Heavenly Father for guidance.

I hope on this Sabbath day, you can remember you’re not alone in making mistakes. We can all rise above our mistakes, even more, what we learn from our mistakes is truly the Diamond in the rough.
