Wife, Mama to 5 kids-ages 3-8, business owner, YouTuber, Blogger, Licensed Esthetician, and Birth Doula! I love coaching and empowering women through the Birth experience. We are building a farm with our five kids in order to help them learn the value of work and to ground ourselves from the busyness of the world! On my blog and various channels, we also talk about Anxiety and PPD, and I am passionate about helping others not feel alone in their journey! Thanks for being here, I love getting to know you!
If you get to the end, tell me if you agree!♥️ “Remember well the Book of Mormon account of Helaman’s two thousand stripling warriors and how the teachings of their mothers gave them strength and faith. These marvelous mothers taught them to put on the whole armor of God, to place their trust in the Lord, and to doubt not.”-Ezra Taft Benson
The WHOLE armor of God. I know. That’s a big responsibility. It can sound overwhelming. Half of the time, I’m yelling out the back door for the kids to just put on their bike helmets.😅
I believe it’s the little things that can be mighty for our own little warriors. The small conversations over dinner, taking time to answer that question in the car. Reminding them of what we believe and participate in, while keeping love for others.
The WHOLE armor of God can feel overwhelming, when you can’t even see past the dinner dishes and bedtime.
The Spirit whispers to me: “Small Things.”
Bringing in Christ to their minds and hearts daily through prayer, even if everyone’s eyes aren’t closed. Apologizing for being snappy. Smiling when they walk into the room. Bringing them with you to check on an old friend. Choosing a positive thought instead of a frustrated one. Giving someone grace instead of bashing them. Teaching them that people have hard days. Reciting a scripture over breakfast.
Small moments. Small conversations. Small facial expressions. Small acts of righteousness. Small, small, small.
THAT may be what the “WHOLE” Armor of God means in this season of small warriors.💕
On this month’s segment of Good Things Utah, we chatted about the benefits of taking your kids with you when you travel! I also loved having 2 of my babies at the station with me! You can find the video segment here:

My husband and I love taking time to travel together, but we also REALLY love traveling with our kids! It can be a lot more work and isn’t always “picture perfect” for sure, but we have seen many benefits to it as well! I grew up traveling to different countries to my family, and I really believe the world was an amazing “classroom!”
Traveling as a family can feel overwhelming or expensive, but it doesn’t have to be fancy! Hopping in the car and going on a staycation, camping, or even just doing a day-trip, especially in our beautiful state, can be an amazing experience, too!
-Helps kids adapt to change and be flexible.
-It helps them stay curious and adventurous.
-It exposes them to new cultures, food, and how others live.
-It can foster gratitude. We have seen people living in many different and unfavorable conditions, and it helps put into perspective many things you can be thankful for.
-Teaches responsibility and how to be capable. There is a certain accountability that comes with a child learning what they need to pack, how to behave on a flight or in a restaurant, and how to be safe in a new place!
-It creates AMAZING connection and special family memories! We always leave trips with inside jokes, photos to look back on, and more in common than when we left.
