The LDS Primary Theme this year is Choose The Right. A couple years ago I was able to serve in the Primary and loved finding resources for sharing time and teaching our little ones. Even as a parent, I like to know what my littles are learning. Here are a few resources, including an app, for learning the Primary Songs as well as a free Choose the Right coloring page.

Today is our due date from our first miscarriage. In another time and dimension I should be holding my baby today. I sat dealing with the aftermath this morning from our second miscarriage and realized that today I should be dealing with the aftermath of having a baby. I should be holding a sweet child and resting from labor. But I'm not, we lost this baby months ago. And then last week learned we lost another pregnancy. I know I do not go through this trial alone. And I know there are others out there struggling. I share this so other know they are not alone and later some suggestions of ways to speak with and console someone who has miscarried.

So playing off of these elements I've put together this woodland tree.
