My stake along with three other stakes invited the group "Fight The New Drug" to come present to all the youth ages 12 and up. I was really glad my older two boys had the opportunity to go to this along with over a 1000 other youth. This groups message was very powerful. They explained how porn harms in 3 ways: It affects the brain, relationships, and society. One of their main slogans is "Porn Kills Love". At the end of their presentation they invite all the kids to sigh a banner with a pledge to abstaine from porn. They also offer resources for those youth who may already be addicted. This was a great event and I encourage others to check out their message.

So sometimes my boys are silly. Every night we have family scripture study in my room and we all sit or lay on my bed. Well the other night my boys started wrestling and dog piling on each other. In this moment I knew I had two choices I could get inpatient and upset with them or I could just embrace the silliness and have fun with them. I'm so glad I that I did not get upset or frustrated with them. Yes family scripture time took longer but as I sat there taking goofy pictures of them and laughing with them together we created a fun family memory. I love these moments together as these are the ones they will remember.

It's been a long while since I have updated our family blog. A lot has happened over the past several years. Our little family was hit hard with some trails three years ago which ended with Kevin and I separating and then getting a divorce which at the time I did not have the heart to even look at our family blog as it was too painful of a reminder of happier times and the promise of a bright future raising our three boys together. Now I don't want to dwell on the past as what's done is done. All I can do now is move forward with finding ways for the boys and I to strengthen our family and find a new happiness.
