Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald
Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew
Nathan and I publish a family blog, not very well kept up but present nonetheless, at our .mac address. I've decided to post a few of those here. I thought that a blogspot address would be easier to pass along to friends and family, and I wanted to be more accessible to others who might be looking for information about things that make my world go 'round. Things that will regularly show up here will have to do with the life of a military wife, motherhood, homeschooling, politics, leadership education (more specifically: A Thomas Jefferson Education), weekly colloquium topics, self-education (more specifically: A Mother's Educational Course), organic foods or those that are just better, health, things related to religion (probably mostly to do with mine: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), and things that I think are humorous no matter how random, and all of the above may or may not be considered "pc" to everyone. With all of this in mind just try to sit back, enjoy the ride, and lighten up enough to laugh with me for a minute... it'll help you live longer! I promise!
