What a Great Quote...


"Our families need the peace of God in their lives, and if we can't or won't invite the Lord into our lives, then our families become a reflection of our own turmoil. Women are asked to be nurturers to their families, but we must also be firm; we must be the hard rock footings on which our homes can stand. Our families need us to speak peace to them, just as the Lord speaks peace to us. Our homes need to be places where our families and friends want to be, where all who enter our homes can draw strength and courage to face the challenges of living in an increasingly wicked world. Our children need to hear us 'talk of Christ, . . . rejoice in Christ, [and] preach of Christ' (2 Nephi 25:26) so that they may know to what source they can look for the peace that 'passeth all understanding' (Philippians 4:7)."
(Kathleen H. Hughes, "Remembering the Lord's Love," Ensign, Nov. 2006, 112)

I just typed a comment and it, like, disappeared. If you get two from me, only publish one. Thanks for the great quote. I needed that reminder today. Cute picture, by the way, is that hanging in your house? Matches your blog!

The picture is from my house. It is right by the front door. It was originally meant for coats (thus the peg coat rack!) but it just looks too cute with other decorative things hanging there as a nice welcome coming in the door. In the winter I put snowmen there. :)
