stripling moms

Alma 56:47,48
47 Now they had never fought, yet they did not fear death; and they thought more upon their fathers than they did upon their lives, yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.
48 And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mother's knew it.

in all our many travels our family has been blessed with wonderful friends. i know we have been watched out for from above so that each place we have lived has been home. i have been able to acquaint myself and my children with women who teach their families about the gospel of Jesus Christ and they teach them to live it in all circumstances. it's a wonderful thing to have friends who love righteousness and reinforce the lessons i teach my children at home. tonight during our relief society meeting i was thinking how grateful i am for people who care about me and my family, especially those stripling moms who make an effort to do more and work harder and to give more to their kids, without actually spending any money. especially since they are saving tons of money by couponing till the cows come home.

and then i took pictures of some of those stripling moms.

discussing our love of couponing and klondike bars

"2 for 1 pampers at walgreens? plus $10 back to use toward my next purchase??? couponing rocks my world and makes each day worth living!"

I used to make fun of women who couponed. Really I did. I figured it really wasn't worth my time. Now, I have atleast a 3 month supply of fruit snacks if a natural disaster hits. You can live on those babies!
