Bit by Bit 72/100


Today I'm grateful for the clouds
that are covering the sun
and keeping the sun
from warming up my house!

The Word

Alma 31:31
"O Lord, my heart is exceedingly sorrowful; wilt thou comfort my soul in Christ. O Lord, wilt thou grant unto me that I may have strength, that I may suffer with patience these afflictions which shall come upon me..."
On my heart...

Hello July!

I forgot yesterday to also say
that the three goals
I decided to focus on
this summer have
also been going very well!
I forgot that I was going to
use the hashtag #megzsummertothrive,
but I think I'll try to start using it now.

My summer goals are:

1. Love on and create positive memories with MHG and L
2. Cultivate relationships with family and friends.
3. Immerse myself in the Word!

There's still a lot I get to work on,

with exercising.
I joined a free challenge
I saw on Facebook
that sends a quick 15 minute
workout to my inbox
every morning.
It was a great workout!
I was ready to puke
by the time I was done.
That's a sign of a good

I love my life!
God is good!

Pitter-Patter 71/100

Today I'm grateful for...
(One of the few times we actually put shoes on her feet.)

The pitter-patter of little feet.
L got a little hyper around noon today.
The littler pitter-patter of her feet 
on the floors was music to my ears!

The Word

Deuteronomy 6:5-7
"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto they children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."

It is so important to have the word
of God in our hearts
and lives.
And to teach them to our children.

On my heart...


I can't believe June is coming to an end already.

(There were still a few school things,
but overall I count this as done!)

God is good!

Every Feeling of My Heart 70/100

Today I'm grateful for...

I'm so grateful to be a member
It is such a blessing to
have the fullness of
the Gospel.
One of the books
I was trying to finish reading
this month was a religious
book written by some sweet
women from a different
I had a hard time reading it
because I have a different
perspective on life
because of the things
I have learned and experienced
because of my faith and membership
in His Church.

The Word

Joseph Smith--History 1:12
"Never did any passage of scripture come with more power to the heart of man than this did at this time to mine.  It seemed to enter with great force into every feeling of my heart.  I reflected again and again, knowing that if any person needed wisdom from God, I did; for how to act I did not know, and unless I could get more wisdom than I then had, I would never know..."

Scriptures are so powerful!
Have you ever had a moment
when you were studying scripture
and you read it and it entered
with great force and power 
to every feeling of your heart?

I've experienced this many
times in my studies.
I really like to put a date
next to the verse in my 
scriptures and a little
note about what it was
an answer to.

For example:
In D&C 6:14 I have the date
10/13/01 written next to it.
I had been asking a question
I had been deciding if I should
go to China or not.
I went to the temple to do 
baptisms and look for an answer.
I received an answer.
As many of you probably know
I went to China 16 months later.
During those long months of
waiting, I often would look
back at this scripture 
reminding myself that
I was doing what 
Heavenly Father wanted
me to do.
That choice changed my life
If you ever want to hear more
about that story let me know.

On my heart...

Today I had plans to 
get started on my goals 
for July...
But for some reason
I just had no motivation
to do it.
Tomorrow I'm going to 
do it no matter what.
I know that if I get started 
I will want to do it.

I can't believe June
is almost over!
It has gone by so fast!

I love my life!
God is good!

Love of God 69/100


Today I'm grateful for a fun morning
at the pool.
L loved it!

The Word

Caption: L stole her aunt's apple this morning and 
sucked on it for a long time.

1 Nephi 8:10-12
" And it came to pass that I beheld a tree, whose fruit was desirable to make one happy. And it came to pass that I did go forth and partake of the fruit thereof; and I beheld that it was most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted. Yea, and I beheld that the fruit thereof was white, to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen. And as I partook of the fruit thereof it filled my soul with exceedingly great joy; wherefore, I began to be desirous that my family should partake of it also; for I knew that it was desirable above all other fruit."

1 Nephi 11:21-23

"And the angel said unto me: Behold the Lamb of God, yea, even the Son of the Eternal Father! Knowest thou the meaning of the tree which thy father saw? And I answered him, saying: Yea, it is the love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things. And he spake unto me, saying: Yea, and the most joyous to the soul."

On my heart...

The Love of God.
When we've got it in our hearts
and we're spreading it around,
it feels our souls with joy.
I've been thinking a lot
about unconditional love
lately and how I get to
practice having unconditional
love towards everyone.
No expectations.
Just love people
for who they are in that moment
and allowing myself to
see them as Heavenly
Father sees them.
It changes lives.
I know.

I love my life
and the opportunity
I get to choose love!
God is good!

Hearts 68/100

Today I am thankful for an app on my phone so I can write this post while trying to getL to sleep tonight!

The Word

Alma 12:10-11

10 And therefore, he that will harden his heart, the same receiveth the lesser portion of the word; and he that will not harden his heart, to him is given the greater portion of the word, until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God until he know them in full.

11 And they that will harden their hearts, to them is given the lesser portion of the word until they know nothing concerning his mysteries; and then they are taken captive by the devil, and led by his will down to destruction. Now this is what is meant by the chains of hell.

We were reading these verses in Sunday school today and I found myself evaluating my heart and if I have a heart that is hard or not. Currently I feel like my heart is eager and ready to learn more of the mysteries of God. I've been learn and growing. 

I will be the first to admit I'm not always that way. I definitely have moments when I have a hard heart. I get frustrated or angry. I don't make the best choices for my life. 

But I'm blessed to have a brother who loves me enough to sacrifice himself for me so I can repent often and try again!

On my heart...

Life is amazing. 
Perfect situations come to help you move to the next level of your development. 
Situations that humble you. 
Situations that soften your heart and prepare you for what is coming in your life. 
This week I'm going to be working on creating my week more intentionally. 
I'm excited to see how it goes! 

I love my life!
God is good!

Friends 67/100

I've been so blessed to have this sweet lady in my life from birth. I'm glad God blessed us to be cousins and best friends. We don't see each other as often as we like, but we got to talk tonight and it was amazing. I'm so thankful for her insight and all the things she teaches me and has taught me through the last 33 years. 

The Word

Doctrine and Covenants 121:9
"Thy friends do stand by the, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands."

With God 66/100


I'm so grateful for the library.
In my effort to save some money
and some room in our house,
I've downsized my personal library.
Now I try to find books at the library
when I want to read them.
The best part is I can find them online,
get them delivered to the library down
the street, and pick them up in a quick minute.
It's awesome!

The Word

Rosemary M. Wixom
"As individuals we are strong.
Together, with God, we are Unstoppable."

I love this so much!
I am strong by myself,
but with God I am unstoppable.
I've had the opportunity to learn this
over. And over. And over again.
Sometimes I forget
and try to do things myself, but 
it never turns out the way I want.
When I remember and include God
in my choices and ask for His help,
Things work out better than I ever imagined.
I can also do so much more than
I ever imagined!

On my heart...

Have I ever told you how much I love this girl?
Lately she has been hard.
Very whiny and clingy.
And not sleeping through the night anymore.
But I wouldn't trade any of those things
for anything.

She has given me one of my hardest, best jobs.
Being L's mommy.
She's almost one whole year old.

Every time I look at her
I remember what a miracle 
she is for me.
I used to ache to be a mom.
It used to be this impossible dream,
but now I'm living it.
I keep reminding myself to
love every minute.
She's not going to be little forever.
She's going to grow.
Before I know it she'll be going off 
to college and starting a life of her own.
I'm excited to see the amazing woman 
she'll become,
but I'm not in any hurry.

For now I enjoy (almost) every 
moment with her.
And in those moments where
I'm tired or frustrated.
I'll keep reminding myself
that I'm living my dream.

Heavenly Father entrusted me
with her to love her and
to teach her of Him
and His Son.

When I try to do this
mothering thing alone,
it doesn't go so well,
but if I include
God it becomes
one of the most amazing 
experiences of my life!

I'm not alone.
L has an amazing
earthly father
and a Heavenly Father
who both love her so much.

I love my life!
God is good!

Made 65/100

Today I'm grateful for...

the chance I have to help others out
more now that I'm not working.
I got to watch my nieces
last night and today.
It was fun.

The Word

Psalm 119:73
"Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments."

Heavenly Father made me.
He made you.
He continues to make us.
As he puts us through the
refiner's fire.
Helping us grow.
Helping us learn.
Helping us become 
like He is.
He puts us through all
the hard and good
learning experiences to
help us learn the commandments.

On my heart...

L taking a look at my new beliefs.
I wrote them on post-it notes.
She found them very interesting.

The last couple of days
I have been watching the
livestream for the
Limitless Connection Intensive.
It's all about connecting
with ourselves and others.

One of the messages this morning
came in handy today when
I ran my niece to her swim lesson.
I happened to see a parent
of a former student
who did not like me.

Her student was a part
of my class from Hades
who taught me a lot
and made me want to
stop teaching at the same time.

She was talking to a dear friend
of mine, so I stopped and said
hello to both of them.
I was talking to my friend
and trying to include this
parent in the conversation,
but she barely said a thing.
Obviously there are lots of
reasons she might not
have had much to say,
but my mind was
going back to that year
and the things that had
happened between the two of us.

Then I remembered something
that I had heard from Limitless
this morning.
It was that some people
like me and that's great.
And some people don't like me,
and that is great too.

I realized that it's okay
if she still didn't like me.
I still get to work on letting
go and forgiving the things
that happened between us too.
I'm glad I saw her and remembered
 this great lesson.

I love my life!

Today I am thankful for...

This baby doll.
It is the best thing lately.
L has figured out that it's
called a baby, so I
can distract her when she's upset
by asking her where the baby is.
She then will look around and go get it!
It's the best distraction ever!

The Word

1 Nephi 3:31
"And after the angel had departed, Laman and Lemuel again began to murmur, saying: How is it possible that the Lord will deliver Laban into our hands? Behold, he is a mighty man, and he can command fifty, yea, even he can slay fifty; then why not us?"

On my heart...

So I started doing something different.
I kind of feel like it's crazy.
I decided a couple weeks ago to 
start copying down the Book of Mormon.
Word by word.
It has been very slow going.
I've done a whole three chapters.
I've been learning a lot!
It isn't that I haven't read 
these verses many, many times
already in my life,
but this time, writing them.
It's different.
It is kind of like I'm Nephi.
Writing in my journal about my life
and the Lord's goodness in my life.
When I was writing the above verse this morning,
I found myself asking if I sometimes
do what Laman and Lemuel did.
Do I have amazing experiences and
then the next moment 
question HOW Heavenly Father
is going to make it happen.
I hope that I can start
to be more like Nephi.
He had great faith
and knew that the Lord
will make a way for his
commandments to happen.

I love my life!
God is good!

Tuesday, June 21, 2016


Today I'm thankful for...

It helps us keep
in touch with 
family who don't
live near us.

The Word

2 Nephi 28: 30
"For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have."

I keep having to remind myself
that as I live in my greatness,
I get to see it a little at a time.
Line upon line.
Precept on precept.
Little by little.
It's the only way for 
me to learn and grow.

On my heart...

Today I got some time to myself
when L decided to sleep in 
and actually take a two hour nap.
It was sweet
to have some time to myself
and be able to enjoy 
some time with a good book.
I've recently been thinking about
how I really like my alone time,
but I don't have as much of
it as I used to now that I have a baby.
I love my time with her.
I've been working on finding
little pockets of time
to find time for myself.
It's there if I choose to 
do something that matters
instead of getting on social media
or watching Netflix.
It's all a learning experience.

I love my life!

Deliverance 62/100

Today I'm grateful for...

Today I would have to say I'm
grateful for a computer
that works so much faster
than our old computer.

The Word

2 Nephi 1:20
"...But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance."

On my heart...

I keep planning during the day
on writing these grand posts.
They are amazing!
Then I get to the end of the day
and I don't have the energy to 
write all the things I had planned.
Today would be one of those days.
Someone should invent some kind
of device that takes your thoughts
and just writes the posts for you!

Sunday, June 19, 2016


Today in grateful for my father. He's an amazing guy!

The Word 

Mosiah 27:14
Behold, the Lord hath heard the prayers of his people, and also the prayers of his servant, Alma, who is thy father; for he has prayed with much faith concerning thee that thou mightest be brought to the knowledge of the truth; therefore, for this purpose have I come to convince thee of the power and authority of God, that the prayers of his servants might be answered according to their faith.

On my heart...  

She's getting so big and she's so cute!

All You Need is Love 60/100


Today I am grateful for electricity.
It is a blessing for so many reasons!

The Word

2 Nephi 1:15
"But behold, the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld his glory, and I am encircled about eternally in the arms of his love."

Encircled about eternally 
in the arms of his love.
Beautiful words.
True words.
We are loved.

On my heart...

Love is an amazingly powerful thing.
I was listening to a song in the
car today that was talking about
advice for a couple getting
married, and it was
that all they needed was love.

I can't but feel that that
is the answer to basically
any situation.
All we need is love.
It's simple,
but not as easy as it sounds.
Some days we let Satan in,
but if we can try our best
to focus on charity
and true unconditional
our lives will be
richly blessed.

I have been so blessed
by L and her love.
I love her.
I think of the love I
have for her and then
multiply it by a billion
and realize that my
Heavenly Father loves me
infinitely more than that.

I love her.
That's about all I have to say today.
And it's enough.
All we need is love,

Wounded Hearts and Writing 59/100

Today I'm grateful for...

nap time
Next week, I'm going to 
work on getting us back on
a schedule for naps.
And hopefully
get L to do naps in the crib.

The Word

Jacob 2:8
"And it supposeth me that they have come up hither to hear the pleasing word of God, yea, the word which healeth the wounded soul."

I love that.
The word of God 
heals the wounded soul.
The scriptures are so 
full of comfort.
I know when I'm hurting
the best source of peace
and strength I have
is the word of God.

Satan often gets to me
when I'm feeling that way.
He tries to convince me that
watching Netflix or a movie
instead of opening my scriptures
will help me feel better,
but those things don't last.
The word of God lasts.
It heals the wounded soul!

On my heart...

Today I've been thinking a lot about
the times when I've been almost finished
with something and then felt like
it should go a different way.
That I should do something different.

An online friend of mine has been writing
a book for the last six months,
and this weekend she realized
that she needed to start over.
At first she was devastated.
She had put so much work into
the book she had been writing.
She had written it through with
a lot going on in her life.
She had a baby and then a few
months later adopted another baby.
But she realized that Heavenly Father
 needed her to share a different message.
Her situation got me thinking
that maybe I needed to write a different
message than I had been writing 
for my book.

When I finished writing my first draft,
something felt off about it
and I never could figure out what
it was that was missing.
I tried working on it again,
but it still didn't feel quite right.
It's been in the back of my mind the last
almost two years, simmering.

Maybe there is some other message
Heavenly Father needs me to write
about to help someone?
I'm going to try to spend some
time thinking and praying about 
it this coming week.
Maybe it's time for me to figure it out?

This whole thing makes me think about
why Heavenly Father would tell
us to write about something
and then later be like
"Good job! Now start over!"

It's all about learning my friends!
I learned a lot while writing
my book.
About myself.
About my testimony.
About the importance of
my personal journey.
It was worth every word!

My book was me,
writing about my experiences
with the word of God
and the path He led me on
to live in my greatness.
Writing about it
helped to heal a part
of my heart
that was wounded.
The part of my heart
that believed that I didn't
have any important
experiences in my life
that would make a difference
to anyone else.
I realized in writing
that I have had some amazing
experiences that have taught
me some valuable lessons
that could help others.
It was an amazing experience!

I love my life!

Toilet Seats and Greatness 58/100


This one is kind of weird, 
but stick with me.
Today I'm grateful that
MHG replaced our toilet seat yesterday.

See I told you weird, right?
Back in February when
I was super depressed
I had just gotten back from
a doctor's appointment
where I realized how bad
my weight gain really was
after having a baby.
I sat down on the toilet
seat and the lid broke off
of the seat part.
For the last several months
it has been taunting me 
reminding me of my weight.

Yesterday MHG put on a new
toilet seat and I feel free!
So it's crazy,
but I'm super grateful for that.

The Word

Psalm 138:3
"In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul."

On my heart...

Yesterday I had planned on writing
this amazing post, but by the
time everyone had left my birthday party
I was tired and had a pretty bad
headache, so I didn't write much.
Now I'm not sure I can live up
to what I was thinking about writing.
Let's find out!

Yesterday being my birthday,
I was thinking about 
what has been the most important thing
I've learned in the last 33 years.
There are lots of little lessons.
It was hard to choose one, 
but then I remembered what had
happened starting at around midnight yesterday.

L had  been sleeping so well through
the night this week that I just
figured she would that night too,
so I could enjoy a good night's
rest before having fun on my birthday.
At around midnight,
She woke up screaming.
I went in and got her to sleep again,
but every time I would put her in
her crib she would wake up crying again.

I really let my half asleep mind
get me worked up about it.
I started getting mad because
I was never going to have a 
day to do the things I wanted again.
I was not going to get a good night's
sleep before my birthday.
It wasn't fair.
And on and on like that.

I finally got so upset.
I laid her down in her crib
and told MHG that I was done.
He then got up and spent a couple
hours trying to get her to sleep.
He fed her, took her for a drive
and several other things before she
finally would sleep when he put
her in her crib.
The entire time he was doing it
I wasn't sleeping
because I was laying there
feeling guilty for thinking
any of the thoughts I had been
thinking and to top that off
my sweet husband who
had to be up at 5 to get ready for work
was now spending hours 
trying to get the baby to sleep.
My guilt was on overdrive.
I kept thinking about how
I was a horrible mother
and other not so pretty thoughts.
I really love my daughter
and I love that I get to take care of her
and teach her and watch her grow.

So as I was thinking of what the biggest 
lesson I have learn in my life so far
was, this situation popped
in my head and I realized
that the most important thing
is that we get to make mistakes.
Then it is our choice 
whether we learn from them
and use them to learn and grow
into our greatness.
Or we can bemoan our lives
and feel guilty that we're not
doing as well as we think we should.

The only reason I am the amazing
woman I am today is because
I made a lot of mistakes that
have helped me learn and
grow into my greatness.
I still have a lot of
time here in earth school
to make new mistakes and
grow even more in to my greatness.
I'm thankful for all the hard learning
experiences I've had in my life.
They have lead me to this marvelous
journey I walk everyday.
They have lead me to seeing
myself through my Heavenly 
Father's eyes (at least partially)
and living in my greatness.
My Soulful Brilliance,

I love my life!

Birthday 57/100

Today I'm thankful for all my friends and family. It was a good birthday. 

Random selfie from the zoo. L was not so impressed with the bird show. 

I partied so hard I'm not feeling so good. So I'm going to bed. More tomorrow. 

Tuesday, June 14, 2016


Today I am grateful for burst of energy throughout the day so I could get stuff accomplished. 

The word

Isaiah 41:15
"Behold, I will make the a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shall make the hills as chaff. "

Sometimes hard things take little by little work.

Be of Good Cheer 55/100

Today I'm thankful for...

The crazy weather we've been having the last week.
I love thunder storms.
It's been nice to have a little break from the heat of June.

The Word

Doctrine and Covenants 78:18
"And ye cannot bear all things now; nevertheless, be of good cheer, for I will lead you along. The kingdom is yours and the blessings thereof are yours, and the riches of eternity are yours."

Sometimes life seems rough.
We can't do it alone.
But be of good cheer!
Because the Lord
is leading us along.
And if we continue along
with Him we will be
blessed beyond anything
we can imagine!

On my heart...

Today when I pulled out my journal
and attempted to write,
I saw this poking out.
It's an angel feather I
got at Limitless.
A reminder to me that
I'm an angel.
This whole 100 day project
has been hard for me sometimes,
but there have been a few people
who have thanked me for 
what I've written that
has been an answer for them.
It's humbling to think
that little old me can be
used by my Heavenly Father to be
the means to answering others' prayers.

Some days I feel like I'm very much 
less than in my life.
I have all these grand plans
that I don't do for various reasons.
Sometimes I don't really study
my scriptures regularly.
Sometimes I get into bed
forgetting to pray.
Sometimes I don't pray in the morning.
Sometimes I don't think and pray with
a sincere heart with some real intent.
Sometimes I say things that I regret.
Sometimes I'm not very nice.

I am still here in earth school.
Learning and growing.
And luckily I have
an amazing older brother
who made it possible 
for me to repent and 
start fresh.
To keep trying to get 
things right.
To keep working on believing
in myself.

He also gives me an amazing
opportunity to share my journey
with others.

If I've learned anything while doing
this project it is that I am not alone.
There are so many people who
feel like I do.

When I share my thoughts,
I am sharing them with people
who know what I'm talking about.

So thank you dear reader.
You are an angel too.
The fact that you are still
here reading my blog after 55
days of me writing not always
stellar stuff helps me know
that I have truth to tell.

It helps me know that
I am not alone.
It helps me know that I
have a message the world
needs to hear.

It might not be a message
for everyone, but if
it is a message to give 
hope and strength to even
one person, it is worth
all the time and sacrifices
I make to write.

I'm so thankful for my beautiful life!
I am living my dream life right now!
And while it's not always perfect!
It is perfect for me in my 
perfect growth process.
I love my life!

Today I'm grateful for chocolate.
It's delicious.

The Word

1 Nephi 1:12
"And it came to pass that as he read, he was filled with the Spirit of the Lord."

How many times have I read this verse and not seen how amazingly true it is?
When we read the scriptures,
we are filled with the Spirit.
He in testifies of the truth of what we're reading.
He helps us find answers to our questions in the scriptures.

On my heart...

One week down for this stay-at-home mom thing.
I'm loving it.
I haven't gotten as much done as I wanted,
but what I have done has been perfect! 
It's so nice not to have to worry about
so many different things with work and babysitters.
Everyday I'll get better at managing my time.
With flexibility considering L Time.

I'm so blessed!
I love my life!

Heart 53/100


This picture was on my computer when
I logged in tonight.
I am so grateful for this guy.
I'm so glad my Heavenly Father
saved someone special for me.
It was worth all the waiting!
He's always taking good care of us.
He's also been putting L to bed
basically every night since I started
this 100 day project.
Right now I can hear L talking
and talking to him instead of going to sleep.
He's such a good dad.

The Word...

Alma 5:26
"And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?"

I would like to ask myself
this question a little more often.
I think I get so complacent
with my life and I forget
that I need to be sure
to continue to feed my soul.
To feed my testimony.
So I can continue to sing the
song of redeeming love always!

On my heart...

These grandparents of mine celebrated
their 60th wedding anniversary today.
We had a big family dinner to celebrate.
My grandma isn't doing very well,
so who knows how many more anniversaries
they will be able to celebrate together.

I started thinking about how old I'll
be on our 60th anniversary.
I'l be 90 and MHG will be 92.
It will be fun to look back on
our lives and see how far
we've come and to be surrounded
by our family and loved ones.
It will be awesome!

I love my life!

Here's a cute picture just because.:0)
