Charles M. Dickenson: "They are idols of hearts and households;
They are angels of God in disguise; The sunlight still sleeps in their tresses, His glory still gleams in their eyes, These truants from home and from Heaven, They have made me more manly and mild; And I know now how Jesus could liken
The Kingdom of God to a child." One of the most amazing things for me is to hear over and over from parents how their children remind them to pray for Kycie. Or how a parent will find their child praying on their own without prompt to say a prayer for Kycie. Pres. Thomas S. Monson said, "children seem to be endowed with abiding faith in their Heavenly Father and His capacity and desire to answer their sweet prayers. It has been my personal experience that when a child prays, God listens." I KNOW that Kycie is able to take those little steps with the help her her amazing therapist(s) because of the thousands of prayers said in her behalf by little children just like her. Just like the poem says, His glory still gleams in their eyes. Children are the closest thing to heaven on earth. I always knew this, but Kycie has shown it to me in a way nothing else could. @jandjterry #beholdyourlittleones #heavensopen #kissesforkycie #yea #no

If the rumpled row of chairs and huge pile of hymnals on the floor is any indication of how church went for us today, multiply whatever you're thinking by 10 and rest assured that we were THAT family. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜© I couldn't believe how uncharacteristically naughty my kids were today! I'm consoling myself by telling me that God was glad we were there, even if we were irreverent, disruptive, and embarrassingly disrespectful. #children #church #beholdyourlittleones

Primary Program Sundays are the best kind of Sundays. I love to hear children share what they believe and belt out primary songs. Just precious. πŸ’™#beholdyourlittleones #lds #sundayfunday #matching

Every single day when Cade gets home from work our little guy wants to be picked up so he can do this. I mean come on. 😍😍
"Next to eternal life, the most precious gift that our Father in Heaven can bestow upon man is his children." πŸ’—
I am filled with gratitude to have this little family of mine and to witness such sacred moments, which I'm choosing to look for each day. I've learned that everything starts with a choice, faith, hope, forgiveness, peace and even gratitude. It's all about me choosing to see it, find it and act on it.

Reef and I on our Mommy/son date. I love this boy! #reef #beholdyourlittleones #allamericanboy #lovebug

Bea got out of nursery today and we got to the door and she realized the picture she walked away with wasn't the one she colored. She broke into the most genuine sad tears I've seen from her in a long time. We went back to see if they still had hers but they didn't. We drove home with her rubbing her eyes whispering "this is the worstest day".
When we got home I scoured the Internet for the picture with very little information to go on but I finally found it!!!!!!! She grabbed it and ran around the house shouting "I feel so happy!!!"
She has been so sweet these past few days with genuine feelings and no 3 year old dramatic nonsense. It's like she's two again and I can't say I'm disappointed. #lilmissbea #lds #beholdyourlittleones

Kids take an evening stroll through the sprinklers. Crazy...but they LOVED it :) My favorite is Felix's enthusiastic whoop right before a face full of sprinkler.

Instead of being fearful about protecting my kids from the terrible evils in this world, I'm trying to focus on how my kids will grow up to change the world. They are strong, faithful, compassionate little spirits. I have no doubt they'll do amazing things. #faithoverfear

My wife is such an amazing woman because she takes time with my 6yr old AFTER her youth activities to teach her HOW to study the scriptures!

{Day 6} Yet again, I have another day to catch up with, but let's just focus on today 🀣 This blanket is my son's favorite. He looks for it when he gets tired or just to drag it around with him. It's his comfort and safe place, and I will miss the day when he no longer drags it out on the lawn or reaches for it to hug while drinking his bottle πŸ’•

{Day 4} As the days pass, I am noticing more of the little things that I am truly going to miss when my babies are no longer babies. Today I watched my son play in the grass as he usually does, without a care in the world as to what toy he has. He can go from playing with a toy car to entertaining himself for hours with a stick. Then, there's my daughter who just adores her brother and looks for him the moment she wakes up. She is amused by anything he puts in front of her and will try to grasp her long little fingers around all the objects he places within her reach. πŸ’• ——————————————————–——{Day 2 / Catch up} Like all parents, I fall more in love with my children when they are asleep πŸ˜‚ but it's also my chance to study every feature and etch it into my memory. As they sleep I see every expression, I can see their features transitioning from being a baby to becoming a child of age and this makes me happy and sad all in one. I realise these moments with them are fleeting. One day soon, I will turn around and my bed will be empty of little bodies. So I hold onto these moments. πŸ’•

{Day 3} I missed yesterday's post, so I'll be playing catch up tomorrow with that one πŸ™ˆ ————————————————––———– Right now, my children don't have a favorite book, however I read to them some of the books I grew up on which are not only classics, but are my most favorite and cherished memories of bedtime stories read to us by my own mother. I use to fall asleep listening to her reading and voice imitations, whilst imagining the scene playing out before my eyes in my mind, till I drifted to sleep. ————————————————————– My babies are young, and aside from trying to instill a love for the scriptures, I want them to also have a love for good, wholesome literature of vast variations. So far my little humans love holding any book that is placed before them, and sometimes they will sit still, wide eyed and smiling as I attempt to read and play out the characters of the story through my tonality and accents🌱

I've been thinking more and more about this, oh how we need to "behold our little ones." Whether they are your own children or others, we need to take time, undevided time with the little ones around us. They learn WAY more than we think they do, just my observing. Let us give them something righteous to observe.
How do you behold the little ones around you?

"When Jesus said we could not enter the kingdom of God except we become as a little child, I’m sure he was urging us to keep our sense of wonder. I’m sure he was reminding us to remain teachable. I feel sure he was encouraging us to keep our sense of accepting faith and our curious search for what makes the world go around. We can learn much from children."

Every Monday and Friday I do all of the house work and laundry. I start the week and weekend with everything done so I don't feel burdened by it and can relax. I like to get it done! However, that's not his plan. He's obsessed with vacuuming and either wants me to hold him throughout vacuuming the whole house or he wants to push it. Do you know how long that takes? For ev errrrrrrr! But I'm trying to be patient and I'm trying to remember that this is the most important work. Not the blog or friends or even housework, but the raising of our children. They are our future and every little child deserves love and attention. Yesterday felt long and I felt stretched thin with everything on our plates. And then I read this during my studies this morning, "Wherefore be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great." Doctrine and covenants 64:33
Ok, bring on the weekend. I'm doing a great work and I plan to take it all in. #parenting #toddler #18months #chores #motherhood #sharegoodness #beholdyourlittleones

More face painting today. I wouldn't have put it on for a second time in a week, but three reactions were like Easter, Christmas and their birthdays had come all at once. Numbers 667- 669 #beholdyourlittleones #sweetchildren #hatp #helpathousandpeople

Sunday morning before church my little Kamden couldn't find one of his toys. After a few minutes of looking for it, he came into kitchen and asked if I would help him find it. Before I could finish telling him to go look some more, Krew jumped right in and said, "Kamden, if you go say a prayer to Heavenly Father then He will help you find it. He is always listening when we pray." So the 2 of us went into his room, knelt down, and said a little prayer asking if we would know where to look. After we finished praying I told him to just sit quietly for a second and asked him if he had any feelings about where to start. He immediately said, "In Bo's room." I thought for sure he would have already found it if it was in there, but I agreed and we went looking. It took us all but 30 seconds to find it in there. We knelt down again and said another prayer, thanking Heavenly Father for helping us find it. I'm so grateful for their examples; Krew's example to me for reminding us to pray knowing that our prayers are always heard and Kamden's example of faith and to not second-guess our answers.
Alma 32:23 reads, "little children do have words given unto them many times, which confound the wise and the learned."
As much as I hope and pray these are the pivotal moments that are building and shaping our boys testimonies, they are also the pivotal moments that help strengthen and nourish mine. Their faith is so simple and so pure and serves as a great reminder to me to have the kind of faith they do. πŸ’›

Matthew 18:3-4 Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
