Ponderizing- Alma 30:44

“All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it; yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.”

Oh my word how I love this scripture. This has really hit me since becoming a mother. First as I watched my stomach grow bigger and felt something moving inside me; then as he came into the world as a perfect, individual soul with a look and spirit all his own; and now as he grows everyday and I see his personality shine through. It truly makes me want to shout this scripture! 

There is a GOD! He knows who we are and He sent us here for a reason! It was not just by chance or accident, but as an opportunity for each of us. When I look at my baby it is undeniable!

ALL things denote there is a God! What a wonderful truth.


{My First Pregnancy}


I wondered my whole life about the day I would be pregnant! I’m sure every girl thinks about it- What will I look like? How much weight will I gain (hahaha)? Will it be easy for me to get pregnant? Will I be really sick? etc etc… you just wonder!

After ALL that, Joe (now semi awake) reached over, grabbed my hand and said “Goodnight, I love you” and went back to sleep.

I laid there holding his hand and wondering what my response would have been in his situation. I probably would have said something rude like “geez, could you be any louder?!” or maybe I would have grumpily turned away from him when he got into bed (I’ve been known to be a little evil when half asleep).

Becoming a Mama


On July 6th, Joe and I are expecting a new addition to our family. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are. Just looking at that ultra sound of his little profile makes me giggle uncontrollably. I have always dreamed of the day I would have a baby. Because it seemed so far away, I imagined feeling like a completely different person, but I’m the same old me and its pretty weird that this whole bringing a human into the world stuff feels so normal and natural.
