Love at Home

Tonight was the adult session of stake conference and I have to say, once again, that I really enjoy this session. It is just such a nice chance to listen to people talk about the Gospel without distraction.

There were many things I really enjoyed about this evening's talks...but the one thing that really stood out to me was one speaker, a General Authority, who said that if you want to teach your children to respect and obey their mother, you, as their father MUST treat their mother with respect.

I always enjoy it when Church leaders admonish the men to treat their wives well...and as much I enjoyed this (and of course was wishing Troy was there to hear it) was a good reminder that both parents need to respect each other and treat each other with the kind of courtesy and love that they would want their children to emulate.

Sometimes, in the craziness of life, we can get casual in the way we treat each other...and it just reminded me how much I love Troy...and what a good father he is...and how much I want my children to love and respect him.

So, I am going to work a little harder to make sure I have a really loving attitude...and hopefully the children will have a desire to do the same.

I miss you honey. Hope you are safe.

Thank you for the reminder.

We're having FHE on having respect and staying positive tonight... I've been having these same feelings too (esp. when Conner ignores me when I ask him a question, just like his father). :)

I love how stake conference, general conference, and women's conference are scattered through the year to keep us inspired!

I'm safe and sound, and very excited to come home tomorrow to see you and kids!!!
