Sometimes you just need to whisper these words to yourself ❤️
I LOOOOVE this session with the GORGEOUS VIVAS FAMILY! 🌻🌻🌻
Every morning (well, almost 😉) Jon and I do yoga together. Gradually the kids wake up, roll out their mats, and join us. Edwin especially likes to get in on that savasana adjustment. 😉 As I was stretching in a few yoga poses today at our pediatrician’s office while we waited for the nurse to come back in and administer some back-to-school shots, Kate said, “mom, are you doing yoga?? 🙄” 😂😂 6 years old and I totally embarrass her. 🙈 I wondered what it must be like for them growing up with a mom who is doing yoga all the time? Or waking up to parents who are playing chill acoustic guitar music in the living room and starting their day together with some breathing and meditation while you wander in, blankie in hand, and sit on the couch and watch and listen, then join in yourself. Such an interesting way to lead into breakfast. 🤔 Whatever their perceptions now, I hope they grow up and at least think we were a little cool. 😎 Sometimes. 😉🧘🏻‍♀️ #StephDoesYoga #yogafamily #yogawithkids #TuesdayThoughts #peace #unity #LDS #ShareGoodness #Savasana #stillness #someoneispeeking ! 😂

I think we all know that humans are imperfect. That's easy. Sometimes I forget though, that God knows that I imperfectly fail to see it sometimes. 💗 That even though I am confident and love myself and where I'm at, I still find myself putting a few people so high on a pedestal and thinking, "some day I'll have it together like she does" or "I should be a better parent like she is". Sometimes it's good to remember that there IS someone who knows the imperfect people so much better than I will. If I get close to him, I can remember that He loves us right where we are and start seeing people as HE does. Just a thought for you on a Tuesday. #meggetsdeep 👈🏻 #thatsnotathing . . . . . . . . . . . #selfcare #selfworth #comparisonisthethiefofjoy #sharegoodness #journey #loveyourself #selfhelp #bekind #lovedoes #everybodyalways #perfectlyimperfect #begood #loveeachother #childofgod #healthymind #healthylife #healthymom #womenempoweringwomen #womensupportwomen #womensupport #moms #dontcompare #youdoyou #beyourself #liftothers #inspireothers #lovealways #colormequotes
So nasty here from the fires we’re having 😷😷😷 I know California is probably worse, but oh my word. It’s hell here.
Hello friends! There's some new people here, so I thought I'd show the face behind the camera and introduce myself a little bit. So, hi! I'm Mindy 😊 I am married and have 1.5-year-old twin daughters who are the joy of my life! 👭 I'm the copyeditor for the Liahona magazine (plus I help plan the young adult section), hence my always being on Temple Square. I went to BYU and served a mission in New Caledonia (aka paradise). I speak French but don't get a lot of practice with it. My only hobbies are taking pictures, watching movies, hanging out with my husband and playing with my babies, and staying up way too late every night (I almost said working, but that doesn't really count as a hobby, does it??). Tell me a little about you in the comments! P.S. yes my eyes are open in the picture 😂😂 #squintyeyes ➖ "My dear friends, you are a royal generation. You were preserved to come to the earth in this time for a special purpose. Not just a few of you, but all of you. There are things for each of you to do that no one else can do as well as you. If you do not prepare to do them, they will not be done. Your mission is unique and distinctive for you. Please don’t make another have to take your place. He or she can’t do it as well as you can. If you will let Him, I testify that our Father in Heaven will walk with you through the journey of life and inspire you to know your special purpose here." --Bishop H. Burke Peterson #templesquare #saltlaketemple #LDS #sharegoodness
Do you ever find yourself with a piece of furniture you keep debating to paint or not to paint? This rocker, was used by Grandmother to rock my Momma and my Momma to rock me. Being the sentimental sap I am, I never could bring myself to change it. So, I shoved it in a guest room out of sight. I am so glad my stubborn twenty something ass didn’t go and mess a perfectly beautiful thing up. It sits prominently now in my living room - and I feel lucky to have something that’s seen three generations of babies in our family.
Oh my sweet Dara joon, your tati joon loves more than you’ll ever know. 💕 I’m so happy I was finally able to meet you and smother you in snuggles + kisses!!! 😘 I’m stoked to watch you continue to blossom. You won the family jackpot, you know that? Especially with Zehra as your mummy. 🤱🏻 You both are my heart. 💖 Watching you grow up with your future cousins (Inshallah) is going to be the greatest blessing! I miss you already and I’m counting down the days until you’re drooling on my face again. 😹😻

In His church, you have nothing to fear. He knows you better than you know yourself. He understands. He has been watching you your whole life. He was watching when you were born. He was watching when you took your first step. He watched you on your first day of school. When you lost your first tooth, You can't leave His Gospel. You belong here. With Him. 🙌 #wordsoftheprophets #elderballard #jesuschrist #lds #mormon #gospel #thetruth #stayintheboat #ldsconf #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #heisrisen #efy #byu #ldsquote #ldsquotes #planofsalvation #helovesme #christlives #byui #ldsfamily #ldslife #lds4life #ldstemple #mytestimony #churchistrue #onetruechurch

Can we just take a second to be real? I am in what they call “the thick of motherhood”. My kids are 18 months apart, and learning about what this world has to offer and the adventures that lie ahead,They keep my SO BUSY and there are days I just want to crawl in a hole and never come out. I sit here in front of my computer, trying to get some work done, and my daughter cries in the next room, for God only knows what?! 🙄 it’s probably a piece of food from her play kitchen out of place. 🤦🏼‍♀️ They drive me crazy and I’d be lying if I made it look otherwise. But at the end of the day, it’s their smiles and hugs that keep me going. I am so grateful that God chose me to raise these two, and I would do it all over again 100 times. So, just know, if you’re in the thick of motherhood like me, I got your back. And you can cry on my shoulder. I’ll be there. I promise! 💕

<< I am a mother of 4 little boys, ages 5 years old to 4 months. My days are filled with laundry, changing diapers, cleaning up messes, dishes, making food.... but also a lot of cuddles, smiles, kisses, and giggles. I’m very grateful for everything Heavenly Father has given me.... • • Lately, I have been feeling like something is missing. My personal scripture study has turned into a few verses a night, trying my hardest to keep my eyes open, before falling asleep. I have decided to challenge myself to have a more meaningful scripture study... • • I grew up in beautiful California. We had early morning seminary and being a seminary teacher is a calling in the church. My wonderful dad dedicated 8 years in teaching all his children in seminary. What an incredibly special experience it was for us. I remember watching him study for hours faithfully preparing for his seminary class. He was famous for drawing on chalkboards. And his NOTES! My dad’s seminary notes are sacred in our family. • • On September 1, 2018, I am going to start reading a chapter a day while studying along with my dad’s notes. We are told to ‘feast upon the words of Christ.” Join me in reading a chapter a day! We can have a more meaningful scripture study!>> • • • • #ldsquotes #lds #ldspowerquotes #ldsleaders #sharegoodness #ldsyouth #ldsyoungwomen #ldsprimary #ldsyoungmen #bookofmormon #imamormon #thebookofmormon #wordofgod #scriptures #ldsliving #ldschurch #familyhomeevening #fhe #feastuponthewordsofchrist #futwoc

Full disclosure....I have had some recent setbacks with speaking. Hitting some snags with travel or not being a “big enough name” for a fireside. It’s been frustrating, even down right depressing. But, I will press forward because I believe in my story, I believe in myself and, most importantly, I believe that my Heavenly Father wants His children to hear my story. . . . It’s definitely not “light” subject matter and I know that makes a lot of people nervous. I get it. It’s not a subject we all want to hear or get excited to hear. I make it as fun as I can, but I also know just how important it is right now for so many people. . . . Seeing this pop up today and their description of what my fireside will be, made my heart explode! 😍😍😍 . . . Regardless of how “big” my name is, or how many credentials I have next to my name (ie. no college or awards), I can honestly say that if I can reach those few that need to hear my message it is WORTH it! If those few can walk away knowing that they are not only not alone in their struggle, but that there is ALWAYS hope and Christ will NEVER leave them alone, then that is all I need. . . When I first started speaking, I was going to share very little about my depression, kind of just skip over it. The spirit spoke so strongly to me that night to share my suicidal plans experiences and I had a beautiful young girl come up to me, give me a hug and fall apart in my arms. She said she was thinking about ending it that week and that she was so grateful she came. She knew Heavenly Father made her come that night. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ THAT is why I am doing what I am doing. And why I won’t let some setbacks stop me. Believe me, so many times the darkness takes over and tells me I’m not enough, that no one wants to hear what I have to say and that I’m not going to make a difference. I know where those feelings come from and I am fine with making a small difference with even one! ➖➖I was that one so many years ago and wish I had had someone that understood. ➖➖ . . **See more in comments***
Is the weather in your area hot, humid, or both. We’ve been having a bit of monsoon action lately and it is causing more humidity than we are use to. In turn this causes me to feel-like I need to snack more often. When you are dehydrated you may feel light headed, fatigued, or headachy. Dehydration often overlaps with feelings of hunger which can cause you to sabotage your diet thinking you need a snack. So next time you feel hungry you may actually just be thirsty. Try adding a drop of peppermint and lime to your water. It makes plain water more fun without the calories. #doterra #essentialoils #drinkmorewater #stayhydrated #naturalsolutions #tasty #dontbeboring #nosoda #momtips #healthylifestyle #essentialoilsforthewin #sharewellness #sharegoodness #livebetter
God’s mercy is grace in action. God’s judgment is truth in action. God’s glory is holiness in action. God’s revelation is love in action. ********************************************* If you believe religion must conform to your ideals—religious, political, moral, etc.—then start your own. You obviously do not believe the religion contains authoritative inspiration if you believe you know all its rights and wrong. Truth is inherently going to contradict your sheltered opinions. <>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<> There is great religious hypocrisy in frequently attending the temple and infrequently attending to your ministering duties to love the unloved. There is great religious hypocrisy in wanting to take the sacrament, and believing that only those who conform to CULTURAL norms should be loved at church.

Helaman 3:35 This scripture is one that I find myself re-reading more and more. Sometimes life can be hard, but as we focus on being humble the Lord can fill us with joy. #sharegoodness #lds

Today’s #tarotcardoftheday is the #nineofcups . 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷 . This card speaks of emotional fulfillment and satisfaction that’s right around the corner. It’s so close you can taste it- and there’s a sense of excitement and anticipation that accompanies it. . Perhaps you’ve been planning a wedding and the big day is almost here. . Or perhaps you’ve been dating someone and an engagement is on the horizon in the next few weeks to months. . Or maybe you’ve finally seen through all the B.S. stories you told yourself in the past and you’re finally validating your own experience, stopping the people pleasing, and freaking loving YOURSELF. 😍😍😘 . This card speaks of anticipation, joy, and fulfillment. See how he holds one cup closely to his chest? This is some deeply held value that is being seen, heard, and validated. And it feels so f**king good to have this emotional need met or being met in the very near future. . Your deepest desires are close to manifesting- but you need to take that final step- receive it. . . . #happiness #joy #fulfillment #satisfaction #tarotreadersofinstagram #fountaintarot #tarot #divination #inspiration #wordstoliveby #emotions #positivevibes #newage #spiritualgrowth #higherconsciousness #consciousness #lawofattraction #wordsofwisfom #exmormon #sharegoodness #goodfortune #guidance #manifest #manifestation #spiritual #signs #relationshipadvice
”Each of us is precious and loved by the Lord, who cares, who whispers, and who watches over us in ways unique to each of us. He is infinitely wiser and more powerful than mortal men and women. He knows our challenges, our triumphs, and the righteous desires of our hearts.⠀ ⠀ [...]⠀ ⠀ When we are righteous, willing, and able, when we are striving to be worthy and qualified, we progress to places we never imagined and become part of Heavenly Father’s “divine design.” Each of us has divinity within us. When we see God working through us and with us, may we be encouraged, even grateful for that guidance. When our Father in Heaven said, “This is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man,” He was talking about all of His children—you in particular.”⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #worthy #youareworthy #challenges #potential #divine #divinepotential #progress #nocoincidence #nocoincidences #coincidence #jesuschrist #jessusfollowers #faith #believe #trust #churchofjesuschrist #christian #mormons #sharegoodness #ldsquotes #mormonquotes #ldslife #mormonlife #ldsyouth #fsy
My daughter Kylie and I have been talking recently about how we seem to remember and focus on negative things a lot more than the positive things. 🌿 If someone is sassy or unkind we remember it. But, kindnesses seem to melt in and not be remembered! 🌿 In the past few days I had a few small and simple kindnesses that I wanted to take note of! 🌿 A dear friend dropped by unannounced and gave me this succulent arrangement she made. She said it was just because. 🌿 Yesterday I was leaving early from an exercise class and a friend I hadn’t seen for awhile ran out and hugged Kylie and I and said, “I haven’t seen you for awhile and just wanted to give you a hug!” 🌿 Both were small and simple, yet they had a big impact on making me feel loved! 🌿 Let’s not shy away from doing simple little kindnesses and let’s not shy away from noticing kindness! It’s easy to remember, notice and dwell on the negative and hurtful! 🌿 It’s more challenging to let those things go and to be and feel positive!
„Jeder von uns ist von großem Wert, und der Herr liebt jeden Einzelnen. Er sorgt sich um uns, flüstert uns zu und wacht über uns, und zwar auf ganz individuelle Weise. Er ist unendlich weiser und mächtiger als sterbliche Menschen. Er weiß um unsere Herausforderungen, unsere Errungenschaften und unsere rechtschaffenen Herzenswünsche.⠀ ⠀ [...]⠀ ⠀ Wenn wir rechtschaffen, willens und fähig sind, wenn wir uns bemühen, würdig und bereit zu sein, machen wir Fortschritt und gelangen an Orte, die wir uns nie vorstellen konnten, und werden Teil der „göttlichen Vorsehung“ des himmlischen Vaters. Jeder von uns trägt etwas Göttliches in sich. Wenn wir Gott durch uns und mit uns wirken sehen, mögen wir es als Ansporn betrachten und sogar dankbar für diese Führung sein. Als der Vater im Himmel sagte: „Dies ist mein Werk und meine Herrlichkeit – die Unsterblichkeit und das ewige Leben des Menschen zustande zu bringen“, meinte er alle seine Kinder – und Sie ganz besonders.“⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #wertvoll #dubistwertvoll #herausforderungen #potenzial #göttlich #fortschritt #kein #zufall #gott #jesuschristus #jesusfollowers #glaube #glauben #vertrauen #kirchejesuchristi #christen #wirsindmormonen #mormonen #sharegoodness #ldsquotes #mormonquotes #ldslife #mormonlife #ldsyouth #fsy

Have you ever physically felt the promise of Elijah? I do more and more lately. Today would be my Grandpa ❤️’s 113th birthday. He died when I was 11, so I don’t remember much about him 😢 So I hopped on @familysearch and looked at old pictures and read about some memories. I miss all my grandparents and wish I had known them better. My heart is turning to them and I can’t wait to see them again! • • • #familyhistory #familysearch #templework #eternalfamilies #sharegoodness #ogdentemple #becauseofhim #faith #christianblogger #ldsblogger #ldsmoms #ilovetoseethetemple #happytuesday #beckysquire
"Christ walked the path every mortal is called to walk so that he would know how to succor and strengthen us in our most difficult times. He knows the deepest and most personal burdens we carry. He knows the most public and poignant pains we bear. He descended below all such grief in order that he might lift us above it. There is no anguish or sorrow or sadness in life that he has not suffered in our behalf and borne away upon his own valiant and compassionate shoulders." - Jeffrey R.

At 11 months old, he had his right kidney removed and went through chemo. Nine month later they found the cancer had spread to his remaining kidney, which they are now treating. We can tell he’s a little fighter and can’t wait to ship this little blanket out! ❤️ #welovejudah #lucysloveblankets • If anyone is interested in donating $10 to cover shipping, please leave your paypal address or you can send it directly to mine. www.PayPal.Me/VeronicaBlaylock OR you may use the Venmo: www.venmo.com/Veronica-Blaylock.
