Little Man Baby Shower Template

My little sister is pregnant and I'm overly excited. I have two of my own kids but ZERO nieces or nephews.

We are throwing her baby shower in a couple of weeks and she wanted a little man shower. I used this invitation as my inspiration and came up with one of my own. I wanted to make the template available so anyone who needs a quick and easy invite can use it. It is a 5x7 size and you can add text to it on Picmonkey.com.

Here is the file to download:


And here is an example of the invitation wording and format.


Happy partying!

Monthly Memorization: July

If you missed last month's post about monthly memorization you can find it here.

One of our new family goals is to work on memorizing a verse of scripture and a uplifting quote every month. Even if our kids (1 & 3) don't memorize it, we want them to hear us repeating to them in the hopes that what they hear eventually becomes their inner voice.

This month's scripture can be found here and the quote (which is one of my personal favorites) can be found here.



Happy memorizing!

July 2016 Visiting Teaching - Our Potential for Parenthood

The July Visiting Teaching message is "Our Potential for Parenthood". You can find the message here.

I especially loved the section from Elder Andersen's talk in General Conference where he mentioned an article posted on desiringgod.com entitled "Motherhood Is A Calling". It is probably one of my favorite articles on motherhood from a fabulous Christian mother. In it she says:

"Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for."

It was a good reminder for me to appreciate the blessing it is to have my own children and that I need to use that blessing to work good in the world by dedicating myself to my children while I have the opportunity.

All prints are available for free for personal use only. You can find a blank version of the first printable here.


From Elder Dallin H. Oaks talk entitled "The Great Plan of Happiness".




And from the Bible: Psalms 127:3.



Happy Visiting!
