Inspiring Friends

I am so grateful for friends who inspire me to do better, be better, try more and to think positively.... look at this example from a few of my girlfriends; Tasha...."I just finished my Conference Packets for the kids. Click on the link on the sidebar of our Home Page. Or you can get it on" you really need to check out her blog, She has encouraged her family to take on the 21 days closer to Christ challenge, which they WILL successfully complete!
Then of course there is Cassandra, who I wish I would have known when I was a young mom, she has my little family plus one more... she is so amazing with these kids! ( note - they are great kids ) She is always taking time for 'teaching moments' with them. She gets right down to their level, looks them in the eye and quietly lets them know whatever council they need in that moment.
Cheryl, who is quiet, yet strong in her convictions, she and her husband are a major reason why we moved to London! We were living in Brampton about 10 years ago,praying for a change, friends that would inspire and uplift our little family....& who moves into town on a whime? The Davies, We thought they were a little strange, they would just pop by, no judgment,just fun,good, clean, uplifting fun! They were an answer to our prayers and we knew it! They have continued to be dear, supportive and uplifting friends...and a constant reminder that the Lord is aware of us!
Amiee, who is one of these women, the more you get to know her, the more unbelievable she is...Her desire to show others love is inspiring...
I even find the 'newest' of my friends inspiring, Kelly who is a new move in to our area, encourages me to strive a little more in everything I do. Through her example and strong testimony of the gospel ,she teaches others the importance of 'enduring happily',and trusting in Heavenly Father's plan for you!
The most amazing thing about these wonderful women, is their equally amazing husbands! All these men hold their priesthood responsibility dear to their hearts. You can tell through their actions....My daughter Emma once noticed this," men in the church are different then men in the world.... they treat me differently." For this I am grateful!
I have many other inspiring friends and women I associate with who all help me to become a better me, I will forever be indebted to these women for helping me,encouraging me and showing me the way.....

Oh, Adrienne, I am so excited that you are blogging. Now I can see EVERYTHING you are doing.

I'm so glad you have a great circle of friends. (What a wonderful comment by Emma--she is so right ; )

(The Peacegiver is one of my favorite books, too)
