Inspiring Lives

There are some amazing women out there who have lead incredible lives and also write uplifting blogs.  You should know about them.

1. Heather at Women in the Scriptures, (never met in person) who is a co-author of a book: the gift of giving life, presenter at a holistic conference, mother of 3. http://womeninthescriptures.blogspot.com/

2. Laurel at Just Around this Corner, my mission companion, VP of something at Deseret Book, produced Time Out for Women, not-married (yet), speaker at girls camps, friend to many, and funny!  http://justaroundthiscorner.blogspot.com/

3. Megan, my cousin who I rarely saw growing up and as adults, but who I've gotten to know due to her blog.  She's the mother of 5, two twin girls on the other side of the veil, 2 boys here now, one through adoption, one through birth and one little girl in the tummy!  http://marcandmegan.blogspot.com/

4. Jennifer, who I met only once, who is a single mom to 4 boys, who works 5 jobs, is fun, a fashionista,  and a talented writer- even on her Facebook posts.  http://theboysquad.blogspot.com/

5. Jocelyn, who I've never met in person, journalist, mother of 3,expecting baby #4, champion of The Book of Mormon, The Proclamation on the family, and bringing the spirit into her home.  http://beinglds.blogspot.com/

6. Shannon, who also I've never met, new mom, skin cancer survivor, publisher of scripture study journals and the like, paid seminary teacher for over 10 years, very visual learner, owner of an ice cream store, home decorator.  http://www.theredheadedhostess.com/

7. Michaela, lover of the scriptures, thinker extraordinaire, writer of 2 on line books, one for teens about things they can learn from Isaiah, and one about the things the Savior has said that are puzzling. Also never met in person.  http://scriptoriumblogorium.blogspot.com/

I was going to stop at the first 4, but more kept coming to me. There are so many great women out there, I hope you stop by and learn from them. Although they have different lives, they have the same thing in common; they are righteous, praying, commandment keeping, trusting in the Lord, Spirit seeking women.  I would do well to live more like them.

Thank you so much for the blog loving! I am equally as impressed by you after one meeting. I love how lives bump into each other for whatever length of time, and how we can all influence one another for good :)

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.
