I have been thinking a lot lately about my family and about the gospel and about all the people in my life that have had an influence on me in one way or another. Sometimes I sit and think about my girls and if I am teaching them what I am supposed to or if I am teaching them enough. It crosses my mind quite frequent about my girls. Here I am....I am given two of the most beautiful girls as a gift from our Heavenly Father and all He expects in return is that we teach them of Him and help them return to HIM!! What a great example of LOVE and TRUST!! I am so thankful to have a knowledge of the gospel and KNOW and be able to FEEL the love that Christ has for ALL of us. I am so thankful for my mom for raising me in the gospel and for her amazing example. I am also thankful for my mother/father-in-law for the perfect example they are to us every day. Most of all I am so thankful for my wonderful husband. I am so blessed to know he is worthy and able to attend the temple and recieve those blessings. There is no other feeling that can outlast a knowledge of being together FOREVER as a family!
Now after thinking about all of this....especially with my girls...Emma gave me the BEST answer to my prayers. We were driving around and everytime we would pass a church Emma would get all excited and start yelling, "LOOK MOM...THERE IT IS!!" Then she would turn as far around in her seat as she could to make sure she could get a good look. Then as we drove past the St. George Temple she says in a more revrent voice, "Mommy...it's Jesus' house. Isn't it so pretty?!" I was hit so strong by the spirit. It was exactly what I needed at that exact moment. I have been asking if I have been doing enough and if I need to do more to teach my girls about the gospel. Small and Simple, but I got my answer(for now at least).
I LOVE THE GOSPEL!!
