Changes Are Constent
Changing interests and focuses in our lives make life more interesting and FUN. With that in mind I have added a couple more blogs: Preschool Learning Adventure and Mama's Reading Nook both are linked to Primarily A Mama blog. This will stay as my main page, but the others you can access through the tabs above. I will make excerpt posts here for each post written on the other blogs and link them so you can just click and go. I hope this will help keep things better organized and clean looking for myself and all of you.

I Love My Savior Jesus Christ, and His Restored Gospel. December 2008 week 3
This Sharing Time I will be having many visuals.
The Time Line Info I got from: http://seminary.lds.org/doctrine-and-covenants/index.asp
Make a line half way down the chalk board. One side write Christ's Time, the other side says Joseph Smith's Time. I will also have a table with objects and pictures of Our Time.
