My {5K}

I did it, didn't think I wanted to but after a year and a bit I decide I could and then I'd never have to do it again.  I was the fasted little fat girl out there and I did great for my first run.  There were a few minutes where I had to breathe deeply and calm down and say a prayer but as I was finishing I saw my friend Mandy cheering me on.  I heard the announcer mention that this was my first run and I sprinted to the end in my little fat girl sprint.  It was amazing, running through they said I could stop running and I even received a metal.  So cool.

So recap:  The first two miles were fairly easy keeping a 14 minute mile.  The last 1.1 mile was the kicker, I hadn't practice this part and it was set up as a double helix since that was who was sponsoring the run.  It was up down curve curve all the way til the end with the incline to the finish.

I did it, I didn't let my fears of my looks take over and I did my best.  I now want to do it again.

{Gifts} for Mothers

 So here are three ideas, the prices are for VINYL ONLY.  The first one is {Believe in Yourself}.  You'll receive one 2x6, with your choice of color and two rinestones.  They are $1.50 each and $.55 shipping, for ordering up to 10, over ten will be $1.10 shipping.
 The second is this great quote by President Packer.  It measures 8x11 and the writing is in brown and you choose the color of the flowers.  The price is $10.50  and is for VINYL ONLY plus $1.65 for up to 10.  Over ten shipping goes up to $2.20.
The final one is SIMPLIFY, really how much better than this.  This one measures 4x20 and comes in white but of course you can choose your own color.  The price of this one is $7.00 for VINYL ONLY plus $1.65 shipping up to ten.  More then ten shipping will go up to $2.20
If you are interested in any of these please email me.  At this time I only accept pay pal and checks.  ALL local pick ups are free:)

I love this much love, in the simple words.  Go tell my brethren that I have ascended to my Father which is your Father, my God which is your God. (John 20:17)  I think that is my favorite phrase of this clip. 

I am coming to hate, yes I said hate the commercialism of holidays.  It really hit me this holiday, my kids expect gifts, why, have we been giving them that much, too much all these years.  I don't want the easter bunny to visit.  I don't want to color eggs and hide them.  I don't want baskets full of candy.

I want the  simple understanding of what Jesus has done for us.  I want them to feel it as I do the sacrifice that was made so that we can live with our Father in heaven again and with our family.  The purpose of atonement is to correct or overcome the consequences of sin.  Jesus Christ was the only one capable of performing the magnificent Atonement because He was the only perfect man and the Only Begotten Son of God the Father.  Because of him and the choices I've made, I will live with my family eternally.

Here is another similar video with an Apostles thoughts, sometimes I'm not very articulate.  But I feel this deeply.
