:::NieNie Mormon Message:::

Stephanie Nielson is the kind of wife and mother that I would want to be. She isn't just living her life as herself plus a husband and kids, she's living the divine role of a woman who has duties to love and nurture her family.



I love that she doesn't separate herself from the divine roles of wife and mother. What a powerful message. Women are constantly being told that these roles are not 'enough' to fill a destiny or sustain a soul. How untrue that is.

All women, all of us, are these things at the core of our being. It's such a privilege to be a woman. I know this is true. It is one of the only constant and true feelings I've had in my life, throughout the good times, and the very bad times as well.

Beautiful. Thank you Rebekah--you have a way of reminding me to be grateful for all I have been given. I love Stephanie Nielson too, and I hope to be more like her as a wife, mother, person, and friend.

And all that I'll be given, eventually. I'm still down for the 2nd wife role, right?!

thank you.
It is so easy to feel insignificant amid piles of laundry, diapers, and dishes.

You are SO no insignificant, Josephus.

I saw this video a few days ago and it just made tears roll down my face.

Sometimes when you're in the thick of it, it is hard to remember that what you're doing is a divine privilege. Sadly, I need reminders like this at times. Beautiful.
