From Where I Stand

1) What does a typical day look like for you?

I am a stay at home mom with two adorable, spunky toddlers, trying to keep them happy, stimulated, educated, safe. I am not going to lie. Being a stay at home mom is the hardest thing I have ever done and will ever do. There are definitely rewarding moments but it’s still SO HARD. What gets me through each moment and day is that I try to have an eternal perspective in mind. Knowing that life here on earth is literally a glimpse of a moment in the the spectrum of an eternity, I can’t help but to take a step back to reassess my life and each and every situation.

2) Tell us about something that has been essential in your personal conversion to Jesus Christ and His gospel.

It is only possible to think in eternal perspective because of my Savior Jesus Christ in my life. There would be no point of having an eternal perspective if it wasn’t for what the Savior has done for us. It is only through relying on my Savior’s atonement that I can allow myself to let Him take care of the rest.

3) How does the restored gospel affect your life on a day to day basis?

Each day, through the knowledge of the restoration of the gospel, I can safely and comfortably tell myself that it is okay, I can hang in there, we can try again later, and it WILL be better.
