These images are Visiting Teaching quotes for all those Mormon gals out there. Feel free to print it out and use it for your visiting teaching pleasure. Use it to share the love.
This is the last day of July! I can’t believe how fast time is flying this summer! I blink and weeks have gone by. I go to bed at night completely exhausted and my to-do list is just as long as it was that morning, sometimes longer. But in reviewing the Visiting Teaching message this month, I am feeling a bit of relief and allowing myself the rest of a job well done. If there’s one thing I’m focusing on, it’s my family. I have been tirelessly thinking of my children and working to make sure they feel loved and protected. I have been trying to teach them the beauties of having a personal relationship with God and show through example the rewards that come through living with integrity.
Obviously I’m human, so I make mistakes all the time. But. It is in my thoughts and intentions and I am trying. And it is a LOT of hard work! The most important things are always a lot of hard work—the things that bring the most joy, that give me that sweet sense of peace, that allow me to look myself in the eyes and not waver. So all the grumpy moods and forgetfulness, all the negatives that I have swirling around me and myself don’t matter anymore. I’m teaching my children. I’m doing my best at bringing them up in light and truth (along with myself as well). I’m showing them my version of love and we’re finding out what service is all about. What a crazy blessing motherhood is in my life. There are moments when I think I might go mad! But then there are moments I can stand back and recognize the truth: Family is the best, the most, the biggest. It is the most important thing. And I am so blessed that it scares me.

On a different but related subject, I’ve gotten lots of good feedback about these messages from my fellow Mormon gals, but some people are having a hard time downloading the images. I’m thinking of starting a VT mailing list for anyone who is interested in receiving the images directly in their inbox. If you would be interested in that, leave a comment of shoot me an email at brittany [at] cottageroaddesigns.com and we’ll work on making it easy peasy puddings’ pie.
I took these pictures. I made this stuff with my own two hands. I wrote these words. It's just a bunch of craziness, but it's what in this noggin. If you're going to use any of my stuff for your own stuff, just ask me. (I'm sure I'll say yes. I'm nice like that.) And a little linkie love never hurt anyone if you know what I'm sayin;)
