Jesus Christ Family History Skit

Shared by Kristina M: “We did an activity focused on Family History, but we decided to do it with a twist.  The kids practiced and then acted out the “Family History Tree of Jesus.”  It was fun for the kids to learn stories from the Old and New Testament – but to make the connection that all those stories have to do with Jesus’ Family Tree made an impact.

Loving Words

Lately, I have noticed an unfortunate trend in our society–-so many people are eager to say something cruel, harsh, negative, or controversial. They want to be the first to gossip about, make fun of, or criticize others and their decisions. Especially with the ability to hide behind a social media profile, people are saying anything that comes to their minds. It is definitely a trend that I do NOT want to be a part of.

When I think about the Savior, I think of all the good and kind things He had to say. He taught truth and lived truth. He kept His mouth shut at times, reprimanded in love at other times, but mostly told people how much He loved them and desired for them to return to live with Heavenly Father. Christ spoke with charity, setting an example for us to do the same.

Next time you are itching to post a negative comment on a friend’s status update, share your opinion about an outfit a certain person was wearing, or even speak with your children who may be frustrating you, remember the words of a familiar hymn: “Perhaps today there are loving words which Jesus would have me speak.”

You may never know how much good you will do by sharing a kind and loving word. But I can almost assure you that you won’t ever regret choosing loving words over unkind words.

House of Order – Time For Christ

Do you ever feel like your life is so crazy and your home is so chaotic that you can’t even function? That has been my story for the last month and a half. This morning I finally got some important projects around the house completed (they have been haunting me daily), and I already feel like my home is more peaceful. I’m trying to get everything in order from our move last month, but it’s proving to be more difficult than I expected. Hopefully it will be done soon!

However, I know some of the chaos will continue despite my best efforts. I am running three blogs, I take care of my two busy kids, and I am helping my father build some new businesses. I am also in charge of my whole household, as my husband is in school full-time and works two jobs, which means he is rarely home. Add church callings, family, grad school applications, and a few sicknesses in there, and we’ve got a whole bunch of craziness in our place.

Today’s printable quote is a great reminder to me that I need to have more order in my home and in my life. It reminds me to have a balance in all things, but to have a greater priority.

“Our house is to be a house of order...Let us provide time for family, time for work, time for study, time for service, time for recreation, time for self—but above all, time for Christ.” – Thomas S. Monson (Click here to read this talk.)

I feel like all of the stresses in my life have been overshadowing my time for Christ. I still read scriptures, pray, try to read/listen to Conference talks, attend church, etc., but I don’t have a lot of down or quiet time to just sit and think or study of Christ and reflect upon His role and influence in my life. I need more of that time. I need to prioritize better and focus on the things that truly matter most.

I am grateful for living prophets who testify to us of the simple truths that we need to remember to live happy lives and prepare ourselves to return and live with God again someday. I know Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet who leads the true church of Christ on the earth.

How do you keep your house and life in order?
