Every week I do a post on something inspiring. Something that might touch your soul and inspire you in some way. Sometimes people link up with things that motivate them, and that’s okay. There’s no wrong way with this carnival and I just wanted to throw that out there. You can link up motivating or inspiring…. either way it will move us
I believe that we as women should stand and be an example for the things we believe in. I believe that the way we present ourselves to people, and the way we treat people should reflect a woman of faith, of passion, of love, of respect for self and respect for God.
I personally have a very strong Faith that I hold inside. Do I always present myself with this? No, I don’t. I should, and I strive to, but sometimes being a human gets the best of me. Sometimes I say things I shouldn’t, sometimes I do things I shouldn’t, but I have my own personal goals between My Heavenly Father and I and how I achieve these are between Him and me.
We as woman hold such a strong key to our eternity. There are very successful men and women, but in the beginning what makes them succeed the most is if they have a mother who followed Proverbs 22:16 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” In order to train up a child in the way he or she should go, don’t you think you need to be the best example to them?
You don’t have to be religious to hold a certain respect for the woman that you are. Why not be an example for other girls in your life. Why not show them that you are a respectable woman, you have a great purpose on this earth and you are rocking it as a mom, because you are striving to be everything you can. It takes no more and no less to be that awesome.

So very true Amanda! I have tried so very hard to make that my main focus with my girls, and I hope that it's making an impact.
Prior to having my daughter, though, I had a Brownie Girl Scout troop. I was amazed week in and week out how these little girls looked up to me, and for that matter, still do. Whenever I am at school, or at the grocery store, or at the ball field, I have them running up to me and giving me hugs.
It's one of the most rewarding feelings to have when you know that you have had a positive impact on another little girls life, as well as your own daughters.
LOVE this post! And it's so true.
Why are you so awesome! Your faith amazes me sometimes…even without the needed support sometimes from others you never give up on your beliefs… lets be friends.
I'm just another mom that's stumbling through life trying to figure it all out and learn and grow as I journey through the twists and turns that life tends to throw my way. I spend a lot of my time devouring the words of others. I'm an addict of reading, photography, and essential oils. I spend whatever free time I have trying to record our life for our descendants, reading books that will help me to grow into the person my children deserve to have as an example. A good, juicy, good for not a single part of my brain yet tears into my soul book is a guilty pleasure as well. I'm a Latter Day Saints member, and am finally at a point in my life where I'm yearning for all the information I can get into my soul.
This blog is a scattered mess of my mind, but it's my little place to throw it all out there.
