"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.
As you create a home, don't get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don't dwell on your failures, but think about your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your children. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful for the journey."
~Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Did you know?

Are you looking for a good book? Did you know Provo City Library will make you your very own, personalized book list? If this is something you wanted to do go here and answer a few questions and within a week or two they will email you 3-5 different books that they think that you would enjoy. I thought that it was a pretty neat thing, so I though I'd share. :)
