I have had some hesitation on what to share and not share on this little blog. On one hand, I want to be genuine and real and share with you my insecurities and vulnerabilities with every day life. Then, there is the other side of me- the counselor side- who wants to keep things private and protect my personal life and just give you general uplifting messages.
But I am coming to find out that in order to be completely honest with you about who I am- I must share a piece of me that is the pretty much my foundation.
It is my belief in a Heavenly Father… who wants nothing more than for me to be happy and grow as a person…much the same way I feel as a mother towards my kids. I also believe in his son Jesus Christ who I call my savior and am striving to become more like…slowly one day at a time. I feel like he wants us to call upon him for everything. And as silly as this sounds- In hopes to find direction, I have been praying for advice on what direction to take with this blog and to find my inner and outer voice.
A few weeks ago, I was feeding my baby in the middle of the night as I had the impression to check my daily scripture app… and it just so happened to be this scripture 2Nephi 25:23, 26:
“For we labor diligently to WRITE (this is where it caught my attention) to persuade OUR CHILDREN, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God, for we know that it is by grace we are saved, after all we can do. And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ and we write according to our prophecies, THAT OUR CHILDREN MAY KNOW to what source they may look for remission of their sins.”
I felt that I needed to have more courage in sharing my personal beliefs, particularly about Christ to those around me but most importantly to my children.
So I have decided on Sundays I’ll post a little letter to my children with an inspirational thought- a Spiritual Sunday letter if you will- starting next Sunday. I hope to put them together one day for my kids to keep and know what their mother felt in her heart.
For now, have a great rest of your weekend!
