Scripture Writing Challenge (Feb 2016)

Scripture Writing Challenge (Feb 2016)

One thing I like to do with my children is have them copy scriptures.  You would be amazed how many scriptures they have learned simply by copying them into their journals. Not only are they learning (and memorizing!) God’s word, they are also practicing penmanship.

In a world where everything is done on computers, I find it nice to put some ink to paper. I also have a Bible Journal of my own and write in it along with them. For February I wanted to create a unique Scripture Writing Challenge for myself, my children, and any others who may want to join in. On top of the scriptures we do for school, I wanted to add another scripture each day – focused on one theme:

 Love. 

Here is February’s Scripture Writing Challenge: LoveFebruary 2016 - Scripture Writing Challenge - Love - By Life as a Convert

How to Keep kids busy at Church

We can all pretty much agree that until kids reach a certain age, no matter what you do, they aren’t going to be 100% into the message being given at Church. That is why I am writing this post today. To share with you the things I do to keep kids busy at church.

Headcover Styles… for a Mormon

I just wanted to share briefly some headcover styles that are suitable for a Mormon. Despite what some people may believe, it is not required that Mormon women cover their heads. A certain set of modesty standards, is however, required. Because my hair is so short right now I have been wearing styles similar to these below (think turban), but I also like to wear a style similar to the tichels when my hair is longer.

Maybe it is because I know how life is…
