Love at Home.

There is beauty all around

when there’s love at home.

A house doesn’t make a home…

(Love makes a home)

And did you know that there was a recent LDS conference address that specifically addresses the unique experiences and challenges of single parents?  It was given by this cool Scottish guy who was himself raised in a single-parent home.  I hadn’t heard anything like it before nor have I since.  Check it out!

Read here.  (It’s a good one!)

(Speaking to single parents:) “[p]lease never feel that you are in some kind of second-tier subcategory of Church membership, somehow less entitled to the Lord’s blessings than others.

      In the kingdom of God there are no second-class citizens.

Friends, how can you cultivate love in YOUR home?

I used to think that most people who cohabitated (lived together without being married) were bad people.

I do not think that anymore.

Still believe strongly in chastity!

Still believe that people should wait to live together (and all that implies :)) ’til after they are married.

In Spanish, “casarse” means “to get married.”  “Casa” means house.  So to live together in the same house means you are married!

With today’s high divorce rates and broken families, I understand why some people would be hesitant to commit to marriage, thus delaying it, or even avoiding it altogether.

Ironically, statistical evidence has repeatedly shown that people who cohabitate are actually MORE likely to get divorced (and have other problems as well)

More to come on these ideas.

Much more.

No other success

Dear Readers:

Let me again express that I never intend to be judgmental or unkind to anyone, not even concerning such individuals as Charlie Sheen (Although truthfully it’s hard NOT to judge such a troubled man).  I wish to emphasize that all of us are children of God.  ALL OF US.  But I just can’t help but think of how badly Mr. Sheen needs Christ.  I mean, we all do, but for some people, it is more obvious and drastically evident, know what I’m sayin’?

2) When have you NOT “caught the bouquet?”

I feel like I have pretty good judgment…

(thankfully other people do too!) but every once in a while, I might be a little off.  To my knowledge I have not caused any tears, divorces, or deaths, but I have had a friend ask me to take down a picture that he/she (gender neutrality is the key to anonymity, people) didn’t feel was entirely flattering .  So yes, I will write about the people about whom I care (see what I did there?).  But I will present you in the best light, without putting you up on a pedestal, of course.  And if ever I do cross that line of propriety, just shoot me an email, and we’ll remedy it stat.  Sound good? 🙂
