Men (and Women and Children) Are, That They Might Have Joy

This past year has been rather intense in our household with many financial, career, educational, and even emotional concerns.  Granted, there are many around us whose situations in life are much more stressful than ours, but earlier this month I decided that my theme for 2012 is to bring some more balance to my life and find ways to slow down, learn new things, be more creative, relax, have more fun and more joy.  I haven't yet bought my new paint by number set that I promised myself, but last night the girls and I (keep in mind that the youngest, DD4 is now 16) had a few joyous moments singing fun songs and creating snowpeople. 

Have you done anything lately to find Joy?

"Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy."
2 Nephi 2:25


  1. I think that I am in the same boat...just looking to live the "more abundant life" and take a breather! Love the snowman. It's fun to just...have fun sometimes! (And necessary!) To everything...there is a season, right?

  2. I loved this one. Yes, we are to have joy. I find great joy in reading the Book of Mormon.

  3. I love the word Joy, I find it hard to put into words, but love finding it and appreciating feeling it.
