D&C 42:61

"If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things--that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal."

I love this scripture. My husband and I just got done reading a lecture from Hugh Nibley about laying treasure up in heaven rather than on earth and it was fabulous. It is really important that we have the desire to learn the mysteries of God because this will bring us peace and joy here on this earth.

The Ulitmate Career

Well, my brain is still having a little trouble thinking and focusing but C.S. Lewis' seems to be working fine...
"The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only-- and that is to support this ultimate career."

Be Inspired to Keep Things Clean

If you're anything like me you might lose enthusiasm in cleaning your house or certain rooms of your house. One thing I have found that is helpful is to have a "pretty" room. Have you noticed that if a room looks really pretty when it's clean you will be more likely to clean it and keep it clean? This is true for me (not all of the time of course).
Sometimes, even if the room looks good it can get boring. If this is the case try rearranging furniture, pictures, and nick-nacks.

I like to keep neutral base colors in the house so that I can change the accent colors when I feel like it. This will give the room a new feeling for very little cost, time and effort. I am always on a very tight budget but there is still a lot you can do with very little. Paint and spray paint are two of my best friends. I paint everything when it starts looking old and tired or even if I just need a change. Another thing I hope to do eventually that doesn't cost a lot, is buy a couple of sets of curtains. You can get curtains for pretty cheap at places like Wal-Mart, Target and Ikea, or you can make you own. You can then change your curtains with the seasons or whenever you get the urge.
And of course there is painting the walls! I love painted walls. This is such a cheap and relatively easy way to change the whole look and feel of a room.

I really find that when things look good I am more inspired to keep them clean.

My Thoughts

I just can't seem to get my thoughts together now that I'm pregnant...does anyone else get this way during pregnancy? I am very disorganized, can't think, can't spell (I'm not the greatest at spelling as is so you can imagine how bad it gets). When I first started the blog I had so many things to write and say, now I can't remember ANYTHING!!! I hope it gets a little better in the 1st and 2nd trimesters. So, I'm sorry that I have been so inconsistent.
