I love getting the Ensign that follows a conference session and every May and November edition I spend the month reading talks while I eat breakfast in the morning. Yesterday I read "Daughters of God" by Elder M. Russell Ballard. I love this talk as it was directed especially at young mothers and it talks about the importance of being a mother. I'm paraphrasing this but I love the part where it says it doesn't matter if you are a "full time" mom or whether you work part time or full time outside of the home. "What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else."
I want to be able to enjoy the time I have with my kids while they are young but I constantly find myself trying to move onto the next thing such as dinner, baths, going to bed etc. that I miss those precious moments in between. I also feel pulled down by the constant cleaning, cooking and other maintenance items around the house.
So my question is: What do you do to simplify your lives to enjoy your families?
