A Free “To-Do” list printable I’m sharing to bring you light and peace.

Just this last weekend, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints had its General Conference and it’s always so uplifting.

After I hear such wonderful speakers I always want to motivate myself to do better everyday… I particularly … I want to motivate myself and my family to find more peace in life.

I created this FREE printable to encourage my family and anyone else to find that much needed peace we all need.

I hope you enjoy it.

What else should I add to the list ?

One day at a time, one step at a time…. You got this mama!

As a mom to bow 4 cute children, I’m constantly reminding myself “one day at a time.”

It’s easy for me to look at the big picture and get EXTREMELY overwhelmed.

For example, I always have lots of laundry to fold now.

And yet, I’m realizing if I just stop and fold 6-8 items throughout the day…. That pile slowly gets put away.

Baby Kai (3 months old)

Some days I get thinking about how many dinners and lunches I need to make … but one day at a time I can get through each meal and it works out.

I’m currently in survival mode. My 3 month old is adorable but of course needs my constant care, my three year old toddler has many needs too, and also my six and eight year old need mamas help.

However, if I focus on one item at time… one task before the next … things work out.

I’m realizing the feeling of being “caught up” doesn’t always happen. Especially in this season of life for me, and that’s ok.

One step at a time and one day at a time… it all comes together.

Don’t get too overwhelmed mama… you got this!

All This Time Our Hearts Weren’t Ready For Our Kids To Grow!

I was reading my friend’s post about her daughter moving away to college.

It hit me hard as she wrote that she had done all she could to prepare her daughter to grow up and move away, and yet, she herself hand’t prepared her heart for WHEN her daughter moved away!

Cue the tears!

It’s so true.

Mama’s work hard day in and day out to teach their children how to grow and develop in every way, so that one day the child can leave the nest and grow on their own independently.

However, mother’s can never quite grasp the reality of their children not being under their own roof.

It’s hard to process.

Especially since, for most mothers, they cared for their babies while in the womb.

Then of course, they took care of their child as a helpless and innocent little baby, then a toddler, then a child, then a teenager, and then suddenly….. they are grown and on their own.

No my children are not grown up yet (and I am grateful).

However, my oldest son just turned 8 years old and I can tell you that was the fastest 8 years of my life!

I have watched time and time again how fast children grow up.

And yet, as a mother it seems that children truly do grow up faster than ever.

So can we really ever prepare our hearts for when our child grows up and moves away?

I don’t think so.

Because our job as a parent is to love and protect that child.

With that love and protecting, a separation of any sort is extremely difficult.

It always will be.

However, it’s what we know to be best for the child as well.

And perhaps, with high hopes, when that child is grown and moved out, they will call us mama’s up, and they too will miss us.

It will never be the same, but there will be that hope, that the child will understand, that their mama will never stop loving them, never stop guiding them, never stop encouraging them….because a mother will always be a mother.

Near or far, that mother will continue to shower their child with love.

So my hope for those that are dealing with their kids growing up and leaving their home, my hope is that that mama will know she is loved. And more so, that mama did all she was supposed to do, to help that child reach a level of independence that must take place for that child to grow.

The love never ends, no matter the age or the distance, mama will still have that mama heart that will always care for her children.

These Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Bars Are A Family Favorite!

Recently our little family of 6 went camping.

I always try to make a home made treat when we are going camping, and this time I wanted to make sure they were gluten free.

My 6 year old daughter has had trouble with gluten so right now she is eating gluten free and my goal is to make it easy for her!

A Kitchen Item I Recommend to Everyone.

Whether you are buying a gift for someone or if you don’t have these items yourself, I believe that these 2- piece glass measuring cups are a “MUST-HAVE” in every kitchen!

These glass measuring cups are able to go in the microwave and are dishwasher safe which I love.

Whether you use these measuring cups for dry or wet ingredients they are handy.

I love using these measuring cups and I found them on for just $32.14 for the set of two.

If you enjoy cooking, or know someone that does, make sure they have these glass measuring cups…they are a kitchen essential in my book!
