Our daily trials—our losses and our pains—are not just to keep us humble . . . they are gifts and opportunities for us to show that we choose grace to get us through. Sometimes we don’t turn to Him until our spiritual crutches are taken away. If Bostyn would have had the day she had always planned, with Emmett and me by her side . . . I honestly don’t believe she would have fought to see what the greatest gift was. It wasn’t until she stood at the crossroad—alone—and choose better over bitter that she could see the true purpose of her baptism day. Without someone else telling her how great her decision was, she was blessed to receive that still small voice telling her it was right. It was then that she was able to receive her own inspiration straight from her Father in Heaven.

The winner of book 2 on the blog is Jamie Lloyd. Please send me your contact info. Thanks everyone for the support and sweet comments.
My kids were watching videos this morning and this one was perfect for the first day of summer . . . for all the parents who are beginning summer vacation. Sometimes it seems little, unappreciated, and very hard . . . but we never know how much good we are doing with these little ones. Maybe we are missing out on many other things, but at the end of it all there are some things that will matter a lot more than others. Hope I never forget to put those things first. Happy summer!
You never know how much good you do
