Life is busy. Always. You know, with four kids, statistically speaking, it just is. It will be. And that's that. And it's crazy, but I love them so much. I'm doing it and most days, I'm still smiling.
Lately, I've been smiling more. Why? I want to share with all of you one of THE best things I have ever done.
What? THE best thing ever? YES.
It may sound a bit dramatic, but it's 100% true. I wonder why I waited so long.
Such a simple thing can have the most profound results.
As a mother of four, I spend a lot of time in the car each day driving from school to school and errands in between. I get a bit impatient with other drivers and I get tired of watching the clock and going back and forth throughout the day and loading kids in and out.
A few weeks ago, I started listening to scriptures in my car. Specifically, The Book of Mormon. I'm sure this is no "WOW" thing for you, but have you tried it?
I tell the kids, "Mom needs her 'scripture power' for the day" and well, it has been absolutely AWESOME!
I feel more calm, more in tune with the Spirit, more settled, more confident and less frazzled at the end of the day.
It's nice to have the scriptures read to me as I'm driving around and waiting at stop lights. It's so much easier for me to focus on the sound of the scriptures than it is for me to read the words at my house with so much constant noise and bussle going on. Life changing!
