Pssstt.... did you miss the FREE birthday design pack I gave away a while ago? It'a a secret pack that loads into my
#RhonnaDesigns app? You can get it no where but HERE on my IG RN!
In case you didn't get it-
➑️TAP ON LINK IN PROFILE ➑️ it will take you into the #RhonnaDesigns app- LOAD & enjoy! ➑️ create something with the pack that makes you happy & tag #RhonnaDesigns.

I've been obsessed & inspired by @elliecashmandesign since the first time I saw her gorgeous wallpapers. The Old Dutch artisan feel is so soothing to me- so opulent. One of my fave ways to kickstart my creativity is to go on an inspiration trip & gather ideas. Since I've been sick in bed, I haven't been able to do my daily Creativity Exercises, but today I grabbed my #DesignYourLifeWorkbook & picked one I could do in bed. With technology right in our hands, you can take an inspiration trip at anytime, anywhere. What's YOUR fave place to glean inspiration?

#DidYouKnowRhonna Designs app is one of the EASIEST tools to create DIY #illustratedrecipes? You guys- it's crazy simple! The app has 100+ designs/word art/ recipe cards that are chock full o' food & cooking related goodies! I've got some along w/ @akimball_studio! They are RAD!
So: ➑️STEP 1: Decide which recipe you want to illustrate. (This is the hardest step! 😜) ➑️STEP 2: Use the SEARCH feature & enter "food" or "recipe" or "Thanksgiving" or "cupcake" (any food you can think of) to bring up a bunch more options to explore & start adding the ingredients to your recipe. ➑️STEP 3: Use the Text tool to add the font & instructions you want & ➑️STEP 4: Remember to get creative. You can design in traditional 3x5 recipe cards or create a cookbook, or how about an 8x10 illustrated masterpiece to print out & give as gifts! I loooove mine I printed @persnicketyprints! βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•
Families gather around food & sharing those recipes in a creative way is one of THE best ways to keep those recipes & memories alive! Be sure to load it up on @FamilySearch's new recipe section in the Memories tab! The possibilities are endless! I get so excited thinking of an illustrated cookbook filled with my family's faves. Mmmmm! TAG #RhonnaDesigns so we can see YOUR illustrated recipes!

A bowl of popcorn w/ a glass of orange juice. 2 simple things that conjure food memories like crazy. Not a gourmet family recipe, but a treat rich with memories. β€’When I was growing up, one of my dad's fave treats was popcorn & orange juice. I can hear him say- "Hey, Rhonna- why don't you go make me some popcorn-and-a-lil-orange-juice?" I'd get some for him & we'd sit together eating & talking. Or we'd watch a show together. The combo of the 2 brings a flood of warm, loving memories. I knew my dad loved me. I loved being with him. Food does that, huh? Every family has memories attached to food. Whether it's a traditional family recipe, or a simple treat like this: families gather around food! βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•
Did you know @FamilySearch now has a way to share recipes in the Memories tab? We can now share recipes & food traditions/memories & attach them to those family members who have passed away. (If they are already in your tree)
Grab those handwritten recipes, take a pic with your phone & load them up on #familysearch site or the #familysearchMemories app & tag family members.
How fun to share living memories, too!
I tag my family to share YOUR food memories of dad's #popcornandorangejuice & I'll get them on #FamilySearch.
NOTE: when someone is living- the Memories attached won't be seen publicly until they have passed away & a death date is attached to their profile. So, it's important to have one person add all the memories on the same person so you're not all creating lots of profiles of that one person which leads to "duplicates". (OR make sure you all add the memories to the correct person/number)

My story is my story. All of it. The good, the bad & the ugly. Remember when I told you my vision statement for this year is:
I AM A WOMAN OF VISION, GRIT & LOVE
????
Wellll....
I've been given the chance to build grit this week! I was blessed to be healthy & do what I needed to do last Sat & Sun & LITERALLY, when our last guest left Sunday night, my body crashed. Hard.
I've been in bed alllll week- deliriously sick. Bronchitis. Ugh. One of my challenges these past 6+ years has been health.
We all have ugliness in our stories, but guess what? It's part of our stories. Now, I do not believe this gives us license to be negative & murmur--- that doesn't help anyone or anything. (We can always find a silver-lining. )But I do believe we can share our stories to strengthen others! As I've been in bed- (and after 5 days of being really out of it) I'm finally able to pick up my phone & read. I opened up the PDF version of my Great grandma's personal history & guess what I read? How illness was something that she, her mother & grandmother all experienced--- in bed & even sick for YEARS! Yet, her whole personal history is filled with HER joy, cheer & hope in Christ that she learned from her mother & grandmother.
I'm learning that instead of beating myself up & questioning- Did I do too much? Instead: I ask God if what I've done is acceptable. And He answers. Then comes the peace. So, I lay here, reading, pondering & feeling so grateful
to slow down & find JOY, cheer & HOPE in Christ. He suffered. He knows my pains. He is with me. He will strengthen me---just like the amazing, strong, stalwart women who came before me.
P. S. Happy Valentine's Day- I missed you all!

So hard to find the words to describe my experience at #Rootstech this year. These women I serve with as a #globalsocialmediamissionary are rockstars! I love them dearly. Speaking with them has to go down as a highlight in my life. And all who stopped to say hi, take pics & share your journeys with me- I LOVE YOU!!!! #familysearch #familyhiSTORY #heartbeforethechart

Is it possible to find JOY in trials? I'm here to tell you YES! We are HERE to have joy! We see so much of the good or even seemingly "perfect" parts of people lives on social media. So when we have trials sometimes we are tempted to think WHY ME? Or have a tendency to get bitter!
My challenge to you: STOP THAT!
EVERYONE has trials! They may not share that on social media so it's hard to remember that you are not alone... we ALL have trials. And we can learn from them! βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•
I've struggled with health issues for many years. It's been a long, painful, humbling road. I've learned so much from this trial (that I can now call a blessing) But guess what is the NUMBER ONE thing I've learned?
I.
CAN.
FIND.
JOY.
IN.
MY.
TRIALS.
And gratitude is the key. I've been so so sick today that I couldn't move or walk. I was in bed all day! (Missing out on #rootstech) & instead of falling into my old ways of feeling sorry for myself, asking WHY? & just feeling sad or mad- I've been laying here praying// thanking God for allll the miracles I've seen this past week, thanking Him for my countless blessings, thanking Him for a glorious body that can heal! Thanking Him that my daughter @fairjaya is here with me- I studied scriptures & words of Christ & PLEAD with God that I could be given JOY! And guess what? I'm finding joy even here in bed! So grateful for this lesson I've learned & am still learning! Tomorrow is another day. I have faith I will feel better, but even if I can't go to #Rootstech, I know that I can still feel JOY! This quote is what helped me today--- maybe one of you need it, too; βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•
"How...can we claim...joy? We can start by β€œlooking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” β€œin every thought.” We can give thanks for Him in our prayers and by keeping covenants we’ve made with Him and our Heavenly Father. As our Savior becomes more and more real to us and as we plead for His joy to be given to us, our joy will increase.
Joy is powerful, and focusing on joy brings God’s power into our lives. "- Russell M. Nelson

Taught 2 classes today at #Rootstech. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all who came or watched live-streamed. I've received so many texts, emails, DMs & i'm seriously humbled & grateful. You guys are catching the fire!!!! Thank you for sharing your journey with me. You guys are amazing!!! βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•
One thing we talked about in our "Family History is anything but boring" class is: bringing your HISTORY & memories to life! I shared this picture of a bunch of ideas & have had so many questions about them! Such amazing things w can print to make #familyhiSTORY come to life! @pinholepress offers
these Notebooks, puzzles, memory games, dominoes, stickers, board books, calendars, & more! Great way to really make it fun! β€’

As a #globalsocialmediamissionary for @FamilySearch #heartbeforethechart is our hashtag that has come to mean so much to us! This week we are at #Rootstech2017 teaching, motivating & (hopefully) inspiring others to see #familyhiSTORY in NEW WAYS. We hope to instill in hearts
LEARNING
CREATIVITY &
SHARING
& to begin with the heart,
through stories and memories. This process will produce life-long family historians.
You guys- Tonight we filmed our class about fortifying our homes with the power of #familyhiSTORY & I'm so excited --- I felt it soooo strongly!
If you are here at #Rootstech, I'd LOVE to meet you!

Going to pick up our oldest daughter from the airport RIGHT NOW! She's been serving a full-time #LDS mission for the past 18mos &
SHE.
IS.
COMING.
HOME.
this mama gets to hug her so soon & couldn't me more GIDDY! It's better than Christmas- birthdays- anniversaries & every other happy occasion ALL ROLLED UP IN ONE! βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž•βž• For those who aren't familiar with this missionary experience - young men & women in our church choose to dedicate themselves (& pay for their mission) to serve God for 18-24 months in an area of the world where they are #calledtoserve. They leave their homes to preach Christ's gospel & share how families can be together forever. Their goal is not to increase the number of Church members. Rather, to teach and baptize to bring joy to the people of the world! Since they focus on the work 24/7, there is very limited communication & no contact with family. We got to Skype with her for Christmas & Mother's Day & then letters/emails once a week. But that was it! So see why I'm soooo excited to hug my Jaya? Happy Happy day! (@jutmade you've made my day! Loving your magnetic wood letter boards!)
