Long time no see...

So life has been pretty busy and we have moved back to North Dakota. A while ago actually. Anyhow, life is crazy and wonderful and crazy all the same. It seems like we are always on the go and never a dull moment and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Hopefully we can get back in the swing of things and keep updated a little more often!

Busy...

Doesn't it seem like we are always busy. Too busy to add one more thing into our lives. I love this message.

It seems I am always telling my son. Just a minute, mommy's busy. I'll get to it in just a minute, I've got to do this right now. Not now, remind me later, I don't have time.

I'm going to try to bet better at being less busy.

You are not alone.

Though it may seem that you are alone,
angels attend you.
Though you may feel that no 
one can understand the depth
of your despair, our Savior,
Jesus Christ, understands.

He suffered more than we can 
possibly imagine, and He did it
for us;
He did it
for you.
You are not alone.

Reading, reading and more reading

So I've been keeping plenty busy this summer with swimming lessons, my Step-Daughters wedding in Washington, another session of swimming lessons and preparing for the annual Harvest Hoedown. But I have also had some time to read. Most of the time I download a book on my phone since it's always with me, but a lot of times I grab them from the library.

I've read some really good books lately.

This past year I've read

The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials & The Death Cure by James Dashner
(I haven't read The Kill Order yet, it just came out last year)

Divergent and Insurgent (waiting for my library to get Allegiant) by Veronica Roth

Matched,Crossed & Reached by Ally Condie

Uglies, Pretties, and Specials by Scott Westerfield

Prodigy and Legend (waiting for the library to get Champion) by Marie Lu

Next on my list is Leviathan, Bohemoth and Goliath by Scott Westerfield

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

I am looking for some good non youth books, but keep getting drawn to them. They don't have all that gushy lovey-dovey x rated romance crap. I don't care for that, just give me a good story line :)

What have you read lately?

Priorities...

"We become so caught up in the busyness of our lives. Were we to step back, however, and take a good look at what we're doing, we may find that we have immersed ourselves in the 'thick of thin things.' In other words, too often we spend most of our time taking care of the things which do not really matter much at all in the grand scheme of things, neglecting those more important causes."
-Thomas S. Monson

Adversity...

"To those who stagger or stumble, he is there to steady and strengthen us. In the end he is there to save us, and for all this he gave his life. However dim our days may seem they have been darker for the Savior of the world."
-Jeffrey R. Holland
