cure for depression

This post is sponsored by Mormon.org. All opinions are my own. Last year, for the first time in my life, I felt depressed. I'm not talking about for a day or a week at a time, but persistently. Like most days sucked. I didn't mope, stay in bed all day, or cry endlessly, but I sure was angry. Mad even. Unhappy. And most of my ire was directed at my family. For the first time in my life, I understood the term "Mom guilt" and definitely felt like I was failing my children, and failing my husband by failing our children.

Great ideas on how to celebrate Easter as a family! Love these family Easter tradition ideas that are about DOING and memories.

And honestly, we all know what the best part of Easter is right? Jesus' atonement, death, and resurrection! But, after that, it's probably the food, in particular the awesome seasonal candy that only comes out around for this fantastic Christian holiday. My favorite Easter candy? Cadbury creme eggs. Yum! My husband's are the Robin's Eggs. Although, we both love the Jelly Belly jelly beans!Every year (but 2012) my husband and I have made an ...

Easter bunny cake with coconut shavings and licorice

Today is Easter and what a glorious day it is! It is the day we celebrate our Savior Jesus Christ rising from the dead, redeeming man from death, and saving us all! Thank you Jesus! You are so wonderful! We are grateful for the sacrifice you made of your very own life to save all man-kind! We know that your atonement is eternal and allows us to repent and be forgiven by our Heavenly Father, thereby enabling us to return to live with Him again someday through his grace and mercy. And we know that Christ lives, that He is, and that He will be forever. In celebration of this great Holiday, we went to church this morning (like we do ...
