The Miracle of Pregnancy

I told myself before I was pregnant that I wouldn’t complain about morning sickness or any of the other annoying or painful things about pregnancy. I thought I would be so grateful to be pregnant and to have a child that I could look past the discomforts of pregnancy. The miracle of being pregnant would be enough to get me through. I’m only in the 7th week of this pregnancy and that resolve has already gone down the toilet along with my...

Strength to Submit

It is so hard to desire to do the will of the Lord. I know He knows all things and He will do what is best for me. He knows about me and the trials I am going to face and He can see the beginning to the end. He knows what I can handle and the times I am stronger or weaker. I do not doubt His power. I don’t usually doubt His goodness because I know He loves me and wants the best for me. But even knowing all that, it is so hard to give up my...

Why Should I Care?

Why should I care so much if I have kids or not? Is it really that special and important to have a kid and to raise it? Sure they are cute and can be fun at times, but they are also a lot of work. Instead of worrying about myself and sometimes my husband, there is another little person I have to worry about and who can’t fend for her/his self. I will be stuck with this human being until s/he is at least 18 and it may even be longer than that!...

Trying Too Hard

I absolutely hate when people tell me I’m trying too hard to get pregnant or that I’m thinking about it too much. How are you not supposed to think about it when it’s something you want? How are you supposed to not try when statistically the highest percent chance of getting pregnant is 20 to 25. And that is if you have no known problems and you and your spouse are in your early 20s! Fertility rates decrease after you turn 30 and after a woman...

OK to Really Just Be Me?

I know my title for my blog website is “Ok to be just me” and I am working on making this statement feel true to me, but sometimes I feel like I’m not ok. It’s not ok to just be me and I need to do something and be someone else. I don’t know what to do with my life to make it more meaningful. I have so many ideas, but none of them really seem right for me at this time and it frustrates me to feel this way. I want to be so much more than I am...

Prayer: Faith to Obey

Getting down on your knees and petitioning Heavenly Father for help in this life and knowing that He will and can help is a huge act of faith. Trusting that His responses to our prayers will be the best for us, especially when the answers do not come the way we think they should, takes an enormous amount of faith. And then acting on what He tells is?! Well, you get the idea. It all takes faith! It is easy to think that the Lord has so many...

Prayer: Receiving Answers

You know when you pray that Heavenly Father is listening and He loves us so He will answer our prayers, but how do we know when He does? How can you tell if the promptings are really from Heavenly Father and when they are based on your own wants and desires? I think the first thing to do, is learn how the Spirit communicates with you. You hear people describe it sometimes as a burning/warm feeling in your chest or goose bumps or a tingling...
