a "been-there" mom of six offers encouragement
to wives, young mothers, and those not so young,
and simple common-sense approaches to
the "ings" of life:
child-rearing (hints and helps), homemaking (all areas),
cooking (simple, cheap, and do-it-yourself)
making (toys and gifts), preparing (for the unexpected),
maintaining (sanity and peace in this increasingly crazy world) and more---
all aspects of making the most of making do on little---
and having fun in the process.

We Start Early to Teach Our Children Respect . . . for Heavenly Father, Jesus, Others and Self

    and Jesus said,
     "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not;
     for of such is the kingdom of God."
    Luke 18:16
  • I am a child of God.
    • I know Heavenly Father loves me, and I love him.
    • I can pray to Heavenly Father anytime, anywhere.
    • I am trying to follow Jesus.
    • I will remember my baptismal covenants and listen to the Holy Ghost.
  • I will be honest with Heavenly Father, others, and myself.
  • I will seek good friends and treat others kindly.
  • I will dress modestly to show respect for Heavenly Father and myself.
  • I will only read and watch things that are pleasing to Heavenly Father.
  • I will only listen to music that is pleasing to Heavenly Father.
  • I will use the names of Heavenly Father and Jesus reverently. I will not swear or use crude words.
  • I will keep my mind and body sacred and pure, and I will not partake of things that are harmful to me.
  • I will do those things on the Sabbath that will help me feel close to Heavenly Father.
  • I will choose the right.
  • I know I can repent when I make a mistake.

especially in these troubled times.  Wishing (real hard) that we can all
learn to be like Jesus and love one another regardless
 of race or religion or circumstances.
  • Until next time. May there be peace and gratitude in your heart and in your home.
  • I am Simply, Gail
