“Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns & peace dwells." ~ Thomas S. Monson

~Happy 17th Ashley

To Our Daughter
From the first moment we looked in your tiny, perfect face, we have loved you. Through diapers and bows, to barbies and braces, you have grown. You are a Young Woman, sometimes needing us, and sometimes not. We are so proud of you, in awe of you, and so grateful for all that you have taught us. Stretch, grow, dream and soar, beloved daughter, knowing that we will always be the first to cheer you, the ones to wipe away the inevitable tears. And we will always and for eternity love you!
Happy Birthday Ashley ~ Love Mom & Dad xoxo

~Kelsey & her YW Medallion

We are thrilled for Kelsey receiving her
"Young Woman Medallion". She has worked so hard to finish her Personal Progress. She said her favorite Value was Integrity because it was very personal to her.
She was so cute as a Beehive. When I would check her book she would have done ALL of the experiences instead of choosing the few that were required. She went above and beyond in many of the Value Experiences. And she is also wanting to work on the new Value "Virtue" when the new Personal Progress book comes out. We are so proud of you Kelsey xo
I can't believe we have our third and final Young Woman Medallion recipient in our home :)
