"Even as you try to cut out the extra commitments, sisters, find some time for yourself to cultivate your gifts and interests. Pick one or two things that you would like to learn or do that will enrich your life, and make time for them. Water cannot be drawn from an empty well, and if you are not setting aside a little time for what replenishes you, you will have less and less to give to others, even to your children. Avoid any kind of substance abuse, mistakenly thinking that it will help you accomplish more. And don't allow yourself to be caught up in the time-wasting, mind-numbing things like television soap operas or surfing the Internet. Turn to the Lord in faith, and you will know what to do and how to do it."
-Elder M. Russell Ballard
April General Conference 2008


  1. nice thought. We did have a good new years. Also to many kids it gets a little crazy. I tried messing with the blog thing for a while in the beginning it gave me a headache and took up my whole day. I ended up really frustrated. Let me know if you have any luck. There are a lot of tutorials online that will walk you through a lot of it if you havn't tried that. Good luck C:

  2. I'm so jealous of you nice clean desk! I clean ours every day but it just doesn't seem to want to stay clean. I also love that quote!

  3. I know look at your clean desk!! I am so guilty about surfing the net...but it really has gotten a little better! :) Thanks for sharing the thought though :)
