Holy cow you guys! I fell off the face of the planet. Sorry about that. It’s been really busy traveling, taking lots of pictures for my calling and helping my husband edit his dissertations. I’m just trying to keep up with my kids, cleaning and laundry. There really is a time and a season for everything.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven… Ecclesiates 3:1
I wish I have more time to post on here but it’s just not my first priority. I’ll do the best I can because I have a lot of pictures to share with you all.
I recently participated in the a photography competition in Utah. We had to take pictures of 10 different categories and submit our best 30 pictures within 48 hours. It really pushed me to my limits and helped me advance my skills in photography.
One of my most proud category came from “Architecture.” We traveled to Park City to take picture of this historic barn.
This blog just celebrated our 5th anniversary because we started this blog right after we got married and we just celebrated our 5th anniversary! Over the last 5 years, we’ve posted almost 200 times. It has never been super consistent but I blog in the seasons of life when I can. Thanks for sticking by!
I was called and set apart a couple of weeks ago to be a Church Service Missionary Photographer of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. What does this mean? Well basically… take pictures where ever I go and submit them to be used in Church media. So you’ll see me and my kiddies with a camera all the time. Some people from create.lds.org recruited me back in October at LDS Tech conference. Before that I was struggling to figure out where in the world to take my photography hobby… I felt like this is the best way for me to learn more about photography, officially start a real photography business and share my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ at the same time!! I’m going to need all my friend’s help to fulfill this calling! Yes, I really do get to wear this name tag…
Update 2/22/2015: OK we did it today!! I’m going to try to post an update later with some extra notes and add a few spaces on the game board cause we kept on landing on blank spaces… so I started making them sing a song even if they landed on a blank space. I think the biggest problem is that the older boys got “too excited” and couldn’t calm down. The older boys thought it was “awesome” and the older girls thought it was “dumb”. *sigh* but I still think it’d be an awesome FHE game cause it wouldn’t matter if you land on a bunch of blank spots during FHE…. it’s just that time is pressed for singing time.
Ok… I ventured into researching about Minecraft so I could better understand the youth in my ward.
I made this super simple print, play and sing Minecraft Theme Singing Time or FHE Game with the 2015 Sharing Time Manual Songs. This is meant for older kids in primary because the younger kids probably don’t know what Minecraft is.
While I understand it’s not the most spiritual game, I tried super super hard to include gospel principles and gospel related things in it. I think it can be counted as a “wholesome recreational activity!”
Well… I’ll let you know how it goes! Tell me how it goes for you if you use it! :)
I didn’t make it all by myself. I had help from these sources below:
My awesome friend at Feather Flight blogs was willing to help me out with this year’s Valentines Day card. I realized most of my friends are not UofU fans so it would just be not nice for me to give you a UofU valentine. So here you go… you get to pick your valentine: A, B or C?
