Good Deed Coupon: Pick a Movie

I was thinking of some ways to promote service and kindness with one another in a family and this is what I came up with. COUPONS, that can be redeemed for good behavior, service, or kindness at your discretion. I thought that you just print off a bunch and then when you see a child do something that you want your children to do that you reward them. I have a page full of ideas for different coupons. If you can think of any, leave a comment! I'm also going to be making some for spouses so be on the look out!
Please leave a comment if you like these, there's no point in making them if no one wants them :)

Relief Society Idea for Birthdays or Gifts

If you haven't seen yet, the winner of the LDS quietbook was Nancy Peterson!! Congrats!

Are you excited for the weekend to be here? I AM, even though I am taking some overtime on Saturday.
Here's an idea that I thought of today while I was a work of just something simple and easy for a great for your RS sisters to have or for new sisters coming into the ward as a "welcome", or maybe even for you Visiting Teachers for your sisters birthday FUN RIGHT!
Now the way I thought of it, was to be able to put on a window or a mirror so that they would see it or just a reminder that they are loved, so I thought why not a window decal, well guess what! You don't have to go have it custom made and it cost a fortune, you can print it off by yourself and do whatever you want! How you ask well, the Avery company sells the sheets for you to print them, I haven't seen them in stores so you'd have to purchase them from the company. Now the size of the wordart is 4x4 and the pkg from Avery has 3 sheets so you could print off about 12 for abt $8 and be able to put them on cars or windows or mirrors COOL right. Click HERE to check the sheets out.
And here is the DARLING wordart for your ladies!

The Church of Jesus Christ in Former Times [GP #16]

LDS.org Gospel Principles Manual Lesson 16

This is a request from Marlene C. from Hurst, Texas. I agree with her that there is a TON of meat from this lesson and what I got out of the lesson is that we are guided today the same way as it was when Christ was on the earth. Marlene, I will still keep thinking of ideas for your lesson, I haven't forgotten about you! Enjoy the handout, I love how it turned out!


Already a Butterfly

Several weeks ago my little two-year-old daughter was playing with her toys and decided to strap on her butterfly wings. She was having a pretty good time for a while, until she got further down in the toy box and found her purple superhero cape. She wanted to put it on. When my husband tried to convince her to take off the wings, she refused. So he Velcroed the cape on right over the wings. It was awkward. She yanked on it for a while to keep it from being so jagged, but she looked like a crooked purple hunchback. She tried to go with it for as long as she could, but pretty soon she flew back over to us and uttered a very profound truth. I only wish I could remember her exact toddler jargon for this. But essentially, she said, "No cape. Alrey butterfly."

Think about it. You don't need a cape if you're already a butterfly! The moment I heard her say it, I knew it meant something. But it has taken a little bit of time for the meaning to unfold for me. I spend a lot of time—too much time, really—trying to fit into a cape. I see my neighbor in a beautiful cape, making incredible gourmet dinners with vegetables from her backyard. It's usually on a day I hardly had time to pick up a pizza. I see songwriting friends writing songs I truly wish I had written. They're so good. I see their capes billowing in the wind. I go to the mall to try to find something that can make me look amazing—and then I notice the ridiculous price tag. Capes I can't afford. I get discouraged.
All the while, I don't remember that I have wings! I have my own set of gifts. My own list of things I do best. If I paid better attention, I might notice some of those superhero ladies admiring my wings, even wishing for them.
Is being a butterfly better than being a superhero? Not necessarily. But is a superhero better than a butterfly? I'd say not. I have to admit that most of the time I feel more like a caterpillar than a butterfly. But I'm starting to remember more often that I really do have wings. I want to use them to do what they're best at, and fill this world with the things that only I can give. I want to quit trying so hard to be someone else. Easier said than done, I know.
I have lots of superheroes in my life, and I'm so grateful for them. I will always try to be more like them. But I'll try to do it in my own special butterfly way, because that's who I am. And I get the feeling that God loves butterflies quite a lot.
