Lovin’ These Links

It’s amazing how time flies when you’re home buying – papers, inspections, and more papers.  I’m sorry the blog has been neglected a bit lately.  I promise to make it up to you with a bunch of DIY home-improvement posts after we move in. Here are the two sites featured on my facebook page in the last two weeks.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.  If you do, don’t forget to leave comments for these incredibly talented, hard-working bloggers.  We live for comments here in the blogosphere so share the love...

It’s Great to be 8!  A New Baptism Printable

See this lovely, sweet daughter of mine?  Somehow, she sort of grew up overnight.  She used to be so little and chubby – now, all of a sudden, she’s 8 and ready to take on the world. In the LDS faith (that’s my religion, you can click here for more info on it) an important event takes place around the 8th birthday, their baptism.  Just like in any religion, a LDS child’s baptism is a big deal.  It begins her official entrance into the Church and her commitment to live the gospel and choose the right. I really...

Talk to Me Tuesday: Enrichment Ideas Giveaway

After two years hanging out with the 5 year-olds in Primary each Sunday I’ve got a new calling.  I’m now heading up Enrichment with the women in Relief Society.  It’s been several years since I’ve hosted an Enrichment meeting and the program has changed a bit.  So, for today’s Talk To Me Tuesday post I’m asking for your input.  For those LDS women out there reading this, I could really use your help.  What Enrichment activities, dinners, mini-meetings have you had that were really successful?  What fun...

Talk to Me Tuesday: Fun Family Home Evenings

I hate to say it but I’m a bit of a family home evening slacker.  I seem to go through phases where I’m able to stay on top of FHE for awhile…and then we get busy so we week skip a Monday night or two.  Before you know it, a month has gone by and we haven’t pulled out the FHE box once.  Thankfully, there’s nothing like a weekend of General Conference to give you motivation to get back on track. So for this week’s Talk to Me Tuesday post I’m asking for your FHE input.  What strategies do you use to...

CTR Badges – My Favorite Reverance Booster

Okay, I realize this post will only be helpful to a handful of you guys out there.  However, if you’re like me and are responsible for managing a class full of little kids for 2 hours each Sunday…you might find this tip invaluable. I’ve been teaching the 5 year-olds in my ward (that’s an LDS congregation) for over a year now.  As much as I love the cute little kiddos, sometimes keeping 10 kids reverent for 2 hours of Primary can be a little tricky.  I learned quickly that if I didn’t come up with a way for...

Scripture Mastery and GAK Margin Tags Tutorial

We’ve finally made it to the end of our Scripture Sticker Tutorials.  If you missed the first two, you’ll want to read up here:  Bookmark Sticker Tutorial, Gospel Art Kit Sticker Tutuorial. As I mentioned previously, my Scripture Mastery memory is a little shaky.  I created these simple margin stickers to help me locate those key scriptures quickly.  The bright blue box on the top of the sticker makes it easy to flip through my quad and spot the scritpture I’m looking for.  Each tag includes the blue SM box, the...

Bookmark Scripture Sticker Tutorial

Sorry guys, I know I promised this a few days ago…it’s been a little busy around here.  First off, let me say thanks for the overwhelming response to the Scripture Stickers.  I’ve already had to restock my paper supply to keep up with the orders.  It’s great to know that those ridiculously tedious hours of searching for page numbers and adjusting images won’t go to waste!  If you’ve haven’t ordered your sticker supplies or custom book plates yet, don’t worry you’ve got time. ...

Gospel Art Kit Scripture Sticker Tutorial

As promised in my last post, here are your first set of Scripture Sticker instructions and files.  I thought I’d start with my favorites, the scripture stickers based off of the LDS Gospel Art Kit.  The files were created to be used in the LDS scripture set, but if you are not LDS and would like to enhance your Bible with the beautiful Old and New Testament images, please feel free. The photo instructions demonstrate how to place a full-size, over-text sticker.  However, the same basic instructions would apply for the footnote...

Help Your Family Connect with Their Scriptures with Easy Scripture Stickers

After over two years of creating, testing and refining this bright idea, it’s finally time to post it. Hopefully you’ll be as enthusiastic about it as I am. Two years ago my husband and I decided to purchase scriptures for each of our kids. Although they were pretty excited to have them at first, the scriptures quickly lost their luster for my young, non-reading kids. I needed a way to show them that the familiar stories they’d heard about in Primary and Family Home Evening were actually in their scriptures. I struggled to find an...
