Are you having a good Monday so far? I loooove Monday mornings! One of my favorite times of the week. I get my kids off to school and then get down to business getting my house back in order after having it DESTROYED over the weekend! LOL! I am actually going to play tennis this morning at 9:00 am with some friends and then come back and get my laundry done. BLAH! Laundry is no fun at all!
I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Sunday! Mine was GREAT! In the morning we went to church and I got to hear my 12 year old give a talk on Service to the entire congregation. Do you want to hear her talk? Here it is! Can you believe she wrote this by herself and then got up in front of over 200 people to present it?? Here we go.....
MY DAUGHTER'S CHURCH TALK
"For those of you who don't know me, my name is ____________ Cardon. This is my first time giving a talk in church, so I'm a little nervous. I was asked to speak on service. The definition of service is the act of labor to benefit another person. It can be as easy as opening a door for someone, or even smiling at someone. When my sister broke her arm and was in a long cast, I helped her out with the things she was unable to do. Almost every Sunday, me and my mom, mostly my mom, make a treat for our friends and neighbors. When I do an act of service, I feel really good inside to know that I had helped someone, usually during a rough time. Every Saturday all of the kids help my parents out by cleaning all the bathrooms in our house, along with some other small chores. In the scriptures we read that if you have spent your days in service, you have been in the service of your God. And that means when you do service for other people, you are doing service for Heavenly Father. I know that we are all able to serve, and that if we do, we will be blessed."
Didn't she do a fabulous job? I was one proud mama sitting in the church pew!
Last night I wanted to make more cards to use in my church calling. I get to work with the women in my ward (congregation) by checking on them and making sure they are taken care of. I realized that I am getting low on fun cards! I thought, what about a cute owl?? This is what I came up with. What do you think?
I used the Cricut Lite Hoot & Holler cartridge. I also used Biggie Punnies (which will be gone forever soon, so get them while you can!)
