SIMPLIFY The grand and the simple. They are equally wonderful. We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.” ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~ (Thanks to Rebecca at Life & Godliness blog for this quote)

"A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ

I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven."
When I say... "I am a Christian"I don't speak of this with pride.

My love is otherwise.
