Watch to see WHY they started their blog and WHY they wrote the book...
"FINDING THE LORD'S LESSONS IN EVERYDAY LIFE!"
And I LOVE the lessons they find!
It's hard to stay mad once you realize that you're too blessed to be stressed."
Personal diary entries and fun blurbs of wisdom bring together their views and teach us with humor and love.
Like this lesson:
"For some of us, sometimes life gets rough enough that it feels like we're doing hard time. Each of us with a personal prison of our own, serving separate sentences, but still the same Savior. What we've learned is that you can put yourself in lockup, but God never throws away the key. Ask. Seek. Knock. He'll unlock the lessons.
