2 Corinthians 7:16

I rejoice therefore that I have confidence in you in all things.

I love this verse.  To me it says our Heavenly Father loves us, no matter our faults, he has faith that we are strong in making good and right choices.  It says that I don't have to be scared that he has my back, no matter what happens, if I make a mistake I can repent.  If I do something good he is happy.  That is just as we do for our family and children, love them unconditionally and cheer them on to be the best.  Our Heavenly Father is doing the same.  This truly hit home for me this week and it reinforced my decisions that were tough ones to make and I made them, not on my own and I feel I did the right thing.  What a blessing  this is to know what I did and see that he has confidence in me.  So the next time you doubt or wonder.  Remember it says it right here in the scriptures...I can touch it and see it.  What a blessing that is for me.

REL 212 week 1, Apostle Stephen

So I have started another class.  A summer class which means it is religion and this is a continuation of my religion class of 211.  But this means this is my last religion class, last summer class and one class and semester closer to graduating.


So this week our lesson focuses us on Acts 1-18.  In those chapters lots is going on.  Naming of the apostles, death of apostles and new apostles all preaching the gospel through out the Mediterranean Sea areas.  This week through out of what I read I keep going back to Stephen in Acts 6-7.  I struggle with reading it not because it is hard but because they stoned him.  It is so sad and I don't understand why they didn't listen.  Then I relate it to now, now we have people who just don't listen.  That is their priority I guess they have that freedom to not believe, and most of the time we are not condemned to death for our beliefs and that is a good thing, so I guess we've moved forward on that end.

At lds.org it shows a video of these scriptures and shows it so lovingly and makes better sense.  I'm still not certain what happened for Stephen to be chained in the first place and who the person was that brought him in but the story is so touching and sad and in the end he asks the Lord not to condemn them, Stephen was at peace.

Final week {B250}

I am getting excited.  It has been a rough few weeks.  But my website is almost ready and I only need to do a few things.  I have a blog for my stuff at www.bizzymommagifts.blogspot.com.  It tells me not to use separate blogs for it.  So I will need to incorporate it into my website.  That is a pain in the bum, I just want to link it.  But I am told it is very good for business.  So take a look around my site and let me know what you think, what looks good and where I can improve.   www.bizzymommagifts.com

Only two weeks left {B250}



Not that I haven't loved this class because I have.  I have had to step out of my comfort zone almost every week.  I have to deal with things I don't know anything about and learn things that I'm still learning.  I've had callers asking me for their business, no way, not yet. 

I am so excited for all my classes to be over truly because I miss my family.  I miss going to have lunch with them, or going on field trips.  Picking them up early because I miss them or having a clean house.  I miss going on vacation. 

So I'm excited to have this class over because it is one class closer to being done.  Fingers crossed I  will graduate end of spring semester 2018.

What have I learned this week?  Optimizing, still learning, I had a call from someone in Oregon and they talked me through a few things on my Adwords.  I was so grateful, sometimes I don't feel that I understand things and really don't know who to ask the questions to.  He gave me a walk through.  So I understand how to make an ad a bit better.  Also we talked about media networking and it is crazy, a bit scary, I am not a twitterer...is that even a word?  I understand the benefits but I wonder how much it would benefit my business.  I love Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest and with my business that would work great since Instagram works many aspects of media with one publish.  So I'm willing to try to get outside my comfort zone and try Twitter,  Lets see how this goes.

Two weeks, only two weeks and I can clean my house again and two weeks and I can sit outside and play in the garden and go have lunch with the kids and do nothing and take naps and relax before those two blessed weeks are over and I start this all again with another class.  Thankfully it will only be one and not three.

Here is a pic of my recent work.
