The Laie Hawaii Temple and visitors center are breathtaking. Enter to win a trip for 4 to this amazing place here.  In this picture we capture the visitors center Sister Missionaries standing in front of the temple.  Over 60,000 visitors came to this visitors center this summer, nearly double previous summers traffic average for the past 20 years.  Why you might ask?  Elder and Sister Swinton shared with us the inspiration they received to invite buses full of Tourists from Mainland China to stop and visit instead of stopping on the road out front for a quick photo and then driving past.  Hear the full story from Elder Swinton and the sisters serving at the visitors center regarding missionary work being done in the following videos:

 

3×4 Cards… Perfect for Gift Giving

I feel blessed to be Mom to my five daughters. I have spent many years being involved in YW and loving the girls of all ages and enjoying every moment of it. I also understand our kids (all of us really) are fighting tough battles and I think it helps to surround ourselves with messages of goodness whenever possible.

That is why I love these handy little 3×4 cards that can be attached to a card or a sweet treat to let them know you are thinking of them or they were missed from an activity. The cool thing is each design can be printed in 3×4, 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, 8.5×11, 11×14 too, making them perfect for framing and gift giving to help remind them of our Heavenly Father’s love for each of us. You can find the downloads in the Sugardoodle shop here.

Enjoy your day! Brenda

Take Your Family to Rootstech Family Discovery Day – It’s FREE!

Have you noticed how busy our temples have become? Don’t you just love it when you see   youth from your ward or your children’s friends there?

My  eighteen year old son likes to go bright and early Saturday morning. He often returns home to say that he ran into several of his friends there. Seeing his peers serving in the temple increases his desire to serve there.  I’ve seen his service do this same thing to some of his peers. There is power, synergism and increased joy when we do things together.

If you children have not caught onto how fun Family History & Temple Work can be, consider taking them to Family Discovery Day at Rootstech — February 6th. {You will need to register online but it’s FREE!}

This year Rootstech is doing a fun “Armed with Power” Treasure Quest. Imagine your children along with 1,000 other children finding excitement and joy as they hunt for different activities around the event center that perk their interests into their own family history.

Hope to see you {and your children} there.  Be sure to stop by the Sugardoodle booth for your children to play “Find-A-Grave.”  It’s part of the treasure quest and is a fun computer hunt where the youth have the find the graves of 8 famous people. How fast can they find them?
