Hi I'm NaDell.

I'm a wife, mother of four, a crafter, a PTA mom, a daughter of God, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to take pictures of my kids and put them on my blog and keep our own history of our life with four kids and the funny things they say, as well as the things that aren't so cute sometimes (like potty-training!) I like to make crafts and give them to friends. I like to bake. I like to go on dates with my husband too.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to church with my parents and brothers and sister and my ancestors have been members of the church for generations; however, that is not the reason I continue to go to church. I go because I believe that it is true! I believe in Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. I believe in a living Prophet who guides us today. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know that I am a child of God (just like everyone else) and that families REALLY can be together forever in the Temple. These are some of the core principles of the gospel. These are such important things to me because I love my family and I do want to be able to go back to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. I know that by choosing the right while I'm on the earth, that I will be able to do that. I can feel the Spirit of the Holy Ghost confirming these things to me as I pray and read the scriptures.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending the meetings that we have each Sunday or the meetings that we have occasionally during the week. The ones during the week are a little more social and help us to be stronger together because we really know each other and our personalities. I enjoy planning events, like our Harvest Social that is coming up this week where everyone will bring some pie to eat and friends and we will have a tour of our church building where some of the people who teach our classes after our main meeting will explain what they do. I also live my faith by teaching my children WHY we do what we do. I want them to be strong in their decisions and to choose good friends who won't try to get them to do things that we don't believe in.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

I think that it's important to teach our children while they are young to cover their bodies and for them to value their precious bodies that God created for them. I want them to KNOW that they are children of God and that their bodies show modesty. When they are not modest, it makes it harder for them to feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost. Being modest (in both clothing and behavior) helps to prepare the way to go to the Temple and to make and keep covenants with a spouse and God. Show more Show less
