I have something to declare!

But I'm scared! Since I haven't blogged for over a year, no one will be looking here, so I feel safe, mostly.

First, mothers need to wake up to what is going on in this country and care about what is being taught to their children. I am not against public school, I am against people pawning off their God given right to educate their children. Public school is flawed, but parents should have a greater influence on what is taught to their children. One great way to increase their influence is to take what is taught at home and add their family values to those teachings. Just be aware, that's all.

Second, its time for me to step up and admit that I am seriously overweight. Obese even. My life has felt very out of my control. I have gained 50 pounds in the last year. I feel like I have been in survival mode. Now, a year later the house is still standing and my family is still here. Its time to take my health seriously. That is how I want to think of it, health, not weight not a number. Healthy living.

Third, I LOVED GENERAL CONFERENCE! I got more inspiration out of Conference this past weekend than I think I have ever in my life! I feel I was given inspiration about what my daily study should be. I am calling it my Daily Devotion; here it is:

1/2 hour scriptures
1/2 hour Daughters in My Kingdom
1/2 hour news
1/2 hour Making of America
1/2 hour exercise

Here goes the next chapter of my life. Fabulous by Forty!

I am delighted to see you are posting again. I am as well. Amen to parental involvement! I second your thoughts on General Conference. It was just what I needed...as always.

You will always be one of my heroes! Good luck with all your goals, you know you can do it, because you have done it before.
