Family Quotations

I am so excited! I have been nominated to do the 3 day quote challenge and I think it’s going to be tons of fun. I love quotes because they so eloquently put into words exactly what I am thinking or feeling at any given moment, much like a song.

Since family is so incredibly important to me, today’s quotes will focus around family. Words are used as encouragement, to express most any emotion, and to just hold conversation. They can build a person up, tear a person down, and can have connotations beyond the understanding of some while others catch the meaning rather quickly.

Before I start with today’s quotes, I’d like to thank Good, Beautiful and True for the nomination. When I got it in my inbox this afternoon, I was super excited! Good, Beautiful, and True is a very inspiring blog that focuses on incorporating fitness into her life along with her family and her faith. Again, thank you for the nomination.

Without further ado, here are my 3 quotes of the day:

As I said, since our lives are led by God and we live in a Christ centered home, my first quote goes to God. Without him, nothing in our life is possible.

God is in the sadness and the laughter, in the bitter and the sweet. There is a divine purpose behind everything — and therefore a divine presence in everything. – Neale Donald Walsch

Beyond God, family is the most important thing in my life and since I happen to be a wife, my husband is the focus here. He’s my friend, my lover, my childrens’ father, and the leader of our home.

A home with a loving and loyal husband and wife is the supreme setting in which children can be reared in love and righteousness and in which the spiritual and physical needs of children can be met. – David A. Bednar

My vocation as a mother is what takes up most my time and as to be expected, the kids get all of my attention during the day. So, this quote if for them.

We aren’t perfect people, but with the grace God supplies, we’re doing our best to raise our children in an atmosphere that is heavily seasoned with grace, mercy, compassion, structure, wisdom and love that we believe find their source in Christ. – John Stange

Such words of wisdom and truth that encourage me to be the best I can be in each of these areas: Child of God, Wife, and Mother.

My 3 nominations for today are:

366 acts of random kindness

Shell’s Shizzle

FINDING OUR WAY THROUGH THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLINESS OF MARRIAGE AND PARENTING. WITH GOD’S GRACE AND LOVE, WE CAN CONQUER IT ALL!!!

Side note to the nominees: Please don’t feel obligated to participate if this isn’t your thing. It’s fun, but not required.

    1. Thank you. It hasn’t always been that way. For a long time, my perception of truth was skewed. By going to church consistently and studying God’s word daily, I have learned that God should always come first, the husband and then children. For many years, I couldn’t wrap my head around putting anyone before my children because children need someone to take care of them. However, since learning more about my faith, I see it a little differently now. I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for commenting.
