7 Days to Better Communication

One of the things that I have found to be difficult since I have gotten married is to find time to talk to my husband. This isn’t because we have nothing to talk about, nor is it because we don’t want  to talk to each other, but with everything that we constantly have going on (and that is not even counting all of the added distractions), communication seems to get tossed to the side.

In order to for us to communicate, we have to make the time and put in a little bit of effort! Here are 7 things that have worked to help us make time to communicate!

So let me just start with the obvious… what is Visiting Teaching?

I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Within the church there are many different organizations, one of which is the Relief Society. As a part of the Relief Society we are each given the names of a couple of sisters in our ward (or congregation) and asked to pay them a monthly visit where we share a message, get to know them on a personal level, and see if they have any needs, either spiritual or physical, that we can help them with.

DIY Heart Backdrop

One of the first things that I decided that I was going to do once I became a mom was document everything. And by everything, I mean EV-ER-Y-THING! Of course, it is a no brainer that I would do my best to make sure to capture every Holiday (big, and teeny tiny).

When it came to Valentine’s day I wanted something cute but simple. That day (actually a few days before) was born the heart backdrop. The best thing was that I only use a few materials and I had them all on hand!

Okay, so I know that there are a ton (and I mean a ton) of different lists and registries that tell you the things that you absolutely must have for your new bundle of poop joy.

As a first time mom I was completely overwhelmed because it seemed that in order for me to survive I would essentially need to buy up Babiesrus and Buy Buy Baby. Turns out, that is not the case.

Here are the four items that completely saved my butt in my baby girl’s first month of life:

  1. NoseFrida

This product is the bomb. It sucks the boogies out of your baby’s nose, and by it I mean you.

The Fourth Watch

One of my favorite biblical accounts is when Peter walks on water.

But… that’s not what I want to write about today.

Anyone remember what happened right before then? Anyone, anyone?

Well I’ll tell ya.

We might find ourselves earnestly struggling, doubting, in fear, and maybe even ready to abort ship because it seems like the safest option. When we are at this point we needn’t worry, chances are the fourth watch is near.

Right before Christ appeared unto his disciples they found themselves in a “sea”-rious situation (yes, I know… bad joke). They were right smack in the middle of the sea, which just so happened to be teeming with waves, oh, and not to mention the wind wasn’t cooperating.

 

It is right at this point, amidst the waves and blowing wind that he appears. And this is where it gets good because do you know when he came? During the fourth watch (which essentially is right before dawn).
