Being a homemaker and conference

This past weekend we had conference. Every 6 months we watch/listen to our prophet, apostles, and other church leaders as they give talks about inspired topics. I always walk away from the weekend feeling uplifted and ready to try and do and be a better person.

One quote that I really loved by Bonnie Oscarson from last conference is below. Being a mother and a homemaker I pray every day to create a home that is a refuge from the world. I want my husband, kids, friends and family to feel relief when they walk through the doors. I will however, defend my home from things that aren’t uplifting or that threaten my family and their spiritual growth.

As the world changes and becomes increasingly more evil, I want my family to be strong in their beliefs and stand tall even if that means standing alone at times. Home is where children are taught right from wrong and how to treat others(among many other things). My role as a mother is important and lately I feel so overwhelmingly grateful that I get to be a mom to 2(almost 3) sweet kids. I get to be home. Today after I picked J up from preschool he was chatting away(like always) and he mentioned something at preschool(nothing bad, but he was concerned). I’m so grateful I’m the one that gets to address his concerns and be there to comfort him.

Conference means all the snuggles while we watch haha.

I want to continue to try and be my best, to never give up. There are hard days, and I’m grateful to my sweet husband who picks up where I lack.
You can watch or listen to the recent conference here. Happy Monday!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
