mrs. is slowing down

"My dear brothers and sisters, we would do well to slow down a little, proceed at the optimum speed for our circumstances, focus on the significant, lift up our eyes, and truly see the things that matter most. Let us be mindful of the foundational precepts our Heavenly Father has given to His children that will establish the basis of a rich and fruitful mortal life with promises of eternal happiness. They will teach us to do “all these things . . . in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that [we] should run faster than [we have] strength. [But] it is expedient that [we] should be diligent, [and] thereby . . . win the prize.”
 -president uchtdorf

i sure do love president uchtdorf. and today this quote was just for me.

i'm going to slow down and focus on the significant.
right now, in the mix of midterms, family, friends and being a wife it's easy to forget this.
so today....i'm going to focus on the significant and slow down.


  1. I love you, Mrs. slowing down. ;-)

  2. i need to slow down too. life is going so fast... ahh! :) cute bloggy btw. love it.

  3. I really loved that talk - I felt like it was written just for me when I heard it too. Isn't it awesome how general conference gives us the opportunity to hear so many of those things that are so obvious, but so easy to forget?
    So while you are slowing down, if you feel like coming up to Lehi anytime soon with your Mr. we'd love to have you over!
