Today was my kids first official day of school. We are all so happy to be back on a schedule (all but the teenagers)! I got so much done today. I even read my scriptures early in the day but then ran out of time so I couldn't post on this blog.
Here are my sweet children. I am so grateful that our Heavenly Father has a plan where we can be together as families eternally.
I thought I would share a really honest picture. Of course I was sad to see them go but so ready for at least one day to play catch up. My sweet husband even took my 11 year old to work today to do his online home school. The time flew by sooo fast! I organized the kitchen, did TONS of laundry, swept, vacuumed, dusted, and even had a snack and dinner waiting. I did more today than I did ALL Summer! LOL!!
Today we are reading about more the wars between the Nephites and the Amlicites and Lamanites. Verses 25-27 stood out to me in chapter 3.
In Alma 4 many repented of their prideful ways and were baptized in the waters of Sidon. There were 3,500 souls that united themselves to the church of God and were baptized. I am amazed at that number. What a blessing that must have been. I wonder how much of a spiritual feast that was to have been there during that time.
Then we read on and see how some of the people fell into transgression yet again. It seems to be a pattern in the Book of Mormon. They are humble and the Lord blesses them, then they start to acquire the things of the world and become prideful.
I want to close today by sharing two videos from the Mormon Channel. I hope that both will inspire you. Have a wonderful night and I will "chat" with you tomorrow. Please let me know if I can do anything for you or if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
