Thank God for the Rain

Have you been watching Conference?! So many wonderful speakers have shared so many wonderful, uplifting messages, but I think this is one of my favorites.

How much of life do we miss by waiting to see the rainbow before thanking God that there is rain? - Dieter F. Uchtdorf

President Uchtdorf has a way with words. I love this reminder to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness, even when it seems we have little to be thankful for. :) Click on the pic for a giant version, and pass it on!

You Can Get Better!

I had a bit of an epiphany yesterday, and I think I’ve found a new mantra for myself. Just reading it makes me feel optimistic and energized!

You can get better at ANYTHING if you do it often enough

It’s sort of along the lines of one of my favorite quotes – “That which we persist in doing becomes easier” – but it just has a different ring to it. One that’s more relatable to me, and my struggles with inadequacy.

Bring up Your Children in Light and Truth

I had an old canvas that’s spent more years than I’d care to admit languishing in the corner of my spare room (with a half-finished, unsatisfactory painting on it). When I ran across this idea (via Pinterest, love it) I knew that it was just the thing to redeem it!

Instead of “you are my sunshine,” I wanted to put an excerpt from D&C 93:40.

But I have commanded you to bring up your children in light and truth.

I’d just like to say that it’s not as easy to get your children’s footprints in paint on a canvas as you might think…however, it was managed, and I love it. It brightens up my whole dining room.

Don’t mind the black smudges, I blurred out my kids’ names. I hope this is a good inspiration for your own project!
