Blessed are the Piece Makers: How Handmade Pieces Bring Me Peace #PRINCEofPEACE

This past September, my handsome husband, Jason, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Over the last six months of chemo-filled craziness I have learned something incredibly valuable about peace. Real, lasting peace isn’t found; it is fought for. To keep a firm grip on the peace that is so generously extended by my Savior I have to be an active participant. I have to use whatever energy I have for good and surround myself with reminders that I am not alone. Thankfully, in my house, I don’t have to look very far to find comfort (see the the video below).

My house is filled with art, sewing, woodwork and countless other gifts designed to bring me comfort. If yours is too, I hope you’ll share it! Take a picture, make a video, do whatever you can to celebrate the piece maker in your life and share the message of true and lasting peace.

January Come Follow Me – Why is Jesus Christ important in my life? – FREE printable

Hi friends,
I wanted to share with you this BEAUTIFUL printable that I have created for the January Come Follow Me lesson, “Why is Jesus Christ important in my life?”. I made this printable last year, but decided to update it will the testimonies from 2016 October General Conference.  And decided to give it to all of you for FREE! Download it here.
Out of all of the printables that I have created for the Come Follow Me curriculum, this printable had the strongest spiritual impact on me personally.  It has been so humbling to read the simple but profound testimonies of the leaders of His church.  It has brought a sense of purpose, direction and peace in my life as I have read and re-read these testimonies, and I hope you and the young women you teach can have a similar experience.

Help #LIGHTtheWORLD with Service Stars

December 1st is the official worldwide day of service. To kick things off, I thought I’d share my simple solution for encouraging service at home. I call them service stars. They’re quick, easy and pretty darn adorable. 🙂

MeckMom Service Star DIY for #LIGHTtheWORLD

I’ve never been much of an advent girl. We have three birthdays and a ton of family/school events throughout the month of December so I inevitably fall behind on any daily plan. I designed these service stars to help my family remember to #LIGHTtheWORLD this month without the pressure of daily projects. Watch the video below for all the details.

To make them, you’ll just need some paper, scissors and a hot glue gun. You can find the cute, little free fortune strip printable here on Sugardoodle by clicking here. This 5-min instruction video will give you all the tips and tricks to making your own set.
