New Year's Resolutions-Study our scriptures consistently

Studying our scriptures consistently has been something that we have struggled with our whole marriage. So this year my resolution for Scott was for him to remember to pull out our scriptures and read while I nursed Penny before bed. A lot of times we have the Mormon Channel read to us from our phone, but we're getting it in more often, and I think that's an important first step. We still have a long way to go, our goal being that we are studying instead of just reading, and that we have individual scripture study as well as family scripture study. But one small step at a time.

New Year's Resolutions

I realize that today is the 21st of April, but this year we as a family really tried hard to make realistic goals that would make our family better:
1) Study our scriptures every day
2) Pay our tithing on time
3) Keep a cleaner house
4) Have a meal plan so we eat out less and nourish our bodies
5) Exercise more
6) Pray morning and night
7) Keep learning about the best ways to raise our baby and nourish her body and mind

2013 is also going to be the year of graduation! Scott defended his thesis in early January, and now he is working on his dissertation grant and research.  I will graduate with my master's degree in December.

As a general update, we are doing great. Penny is growing "like a zucchini plant in July" as Amanda would say. Email me if you would like to be a flickr buddy and see WAY more pictures of Penny then anyone thought possible.
