Our Mothers Always Taught Us

You know, growing up I always thought my Mom knew everything. Heck, she knew when I was getting into something before I even had a chance to enjoy whatever it was I was getting into!  ;)  I watched my Mom cook, clean, serve, study to teach lessons and pray with our family. I paid close attention to how she did things...even tho I acted like I didn't!



There were some things that my Mom did that I was SURE I would NEVER do when I was a Mom... like turning into a wild woman when my brother got lost at the swap meet. And then, yep you guessed it...Pam Campbell popped right outta my mouth one day when I least expected it, and on many occasions since! (YES, I was the wild woman frantically searching for my son in Mervyn's a few years back!)

I am so grateful for a Mom that has lived and loved the Gospel. My Mom continues to set a good example! Today she is serving a full time mission with my Dad. They are in the Mississippi Jackson Mission right now, and loving it there....except for the humidity!  ;)  Now she gets to "Mother" young Elders and Sisters... gosh, aren't you glad that there are Senior Couples out there keeping our kids in line!?!?



I sure hope that I am the kind of Mom that when my kids look back, they will feel blessed for the things that have been taught in our home! I am not nearly as good at cleaning, cooking or crafts as my Mom is, but I love my kids with all my heart!!!

PS A note to my kids: Running around like a stark raven lunatic does not help you find a lost child any quicker!  ;) ~MoM

  7. Such an emotional video and music. Such a special time in my life when my stripling warrior was serving with all of this heart, might, mind, and strength. Thanks Heidi :)

  8. Guess what! Ian's first companion/trainer was Elder Austin McDonough whose mother emailed me soon after they became companions and she and I have been sporadically emailing ever since and President & Sis McDonough just came home from the Mississippi Jackson Mission in July AND I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT'S WHERE YOUR PARENTS ARE NOW! What a smaller world than I thought! Have they been there long enough to have known the McDonoughs? And another side note: Because our daughter, Erin, in Provo has a lot of classes on the day Hannah arrives in SLC, Sis McDonough is going to pick up Hannah and be her companion for the day, then drop her off in Provo at Erin's. (Hannah is going two days prior to reporting to the MTC)

  20. I just love this group! Thanks ladies for all your efforts to keep us sane and distracted from mission our missionaries!...Especially on Mondays when it's 3:46 pm and we still haven't heard from them even though they wrote at 8:30 am last week!!!

  24. Heidi I either comment the same thing three times or I post nothing and think I have lol. So I'm going to try again. My Dd would love to see these videos but they can't click on any links besides lds.org. Not even Dropbox. I haven't even been able to email it because it was too big.. So--I finally chopped it in two segments and sent them as separate emails!! Any ideas for a better way? That one was the sisters one and she has been showing it all over Sacramento lol. So many she has served with were in that one even if only in passing at the mtc but they had such fun with it!! Maybe I should burn a disk? Thanks.
