Friday Freebie: A House of God

Each year before we begin the school year, we have a special night where we talk to our kids about expectations for the upcoming year, remind them about safety issues and celebrate the beginning of the school year with a father’s blessing. This year, my husband shared with our kids this sweet scripture about learning:

“Seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith.”

Doctrine and Covenants 88:118

I love this statement of learning (last year I did a free print of it..you can find it HERE.)..to seek it not only by study, but also by faith. So much of what we learn is by our own effort, but so much is also made up of what we learn directly from God as we include Him in our learning. As we talked about this we then talked about how we can make our home a place of learning this year, to compliment what our kids will learn in school. The very next verse is one of my favorites, so I thought I’d make it into a sweet reminder to look at throughout the year to keep our goal in mind:

Now the hard thing is getting those simultaneously in our home!:)  Hope the beginning of this school year has been great for you.

It’s A Quick Tip: Cooking

One of my favorite things ever are when I have a quick Ah-ha moment. I LOVE reading quick tips on every subject, so I thought adding a few of my own every once in awhile would be fun.

After making cupcakes while in Seattle, I got the job of decorating the tops of the cupcakes. I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to eat are chocolate covered fruit..so this goes right along with it. I had chocolate cupcakes and chocolate frosting, so I added a fresh raspberry and blueberry to the top of each.

The result? Seriously so great! I loved having one of each fruit..it gave you two totally different tastes and both so good.

Do you have a favorite fruit/chocolate pairing?
