President Nelson’s 4 Challenges in

Women’s Session 2018

1. Participate in a 10-day fast from social media

and any other media which may produce

negative and impure thoughts. Notice and

record changes, experiences and impressions

during this time. “The effect of your 10-day

fast may surprise you.”

2. Read the Book of Mormon between now and

the end of the year and mark each verse

which refers to the Savior. Doing so will invite

blessings of increased inspiration, revelation

and miracles by bringing you closer to the


3. Attend the temple regularly and make it a

habit. Time in the temple will “teach you how

to draw upon His priesthood power with

which you have been endowed in His


4. Participate more fully in Relief Society and

study the current Relief society statement of

purpose. Doing so will help women to better

understand their purpose at this precise time

and their role in the gathering of Israel.


Hillary made this 85 day reading schedule and President Nelson’s Challenge.  I washi taped them inside these Books of Mormon and gave them to the sisters I minister to.

Zipper pouch obsession

I am going to start backwards…I just finished this zipper pouch today.  It is my own creation and I am excited how it turned out.  I have been wanting to make something special for Kathy Headlee…she is the director and creator of Mother’s Without Borders.  I am joining this amazing group June 18th and going to Zambia.  This women has a heart of gold and thought that she needed something to do with hearts…so this is what I cam up with.  Don’t you just love this fabric!  It’s from Amy Sinibaldi,  nanacompany. It’s called Paperie.


At this point I am on the hunt for a special zipper pull…any ideas??


This next group are the first Zipper Pouches I made.  I had seen so many posts on Instagram and thought I just needed to see what the excitement was all about…they are pretty basic and there are definitely mistakes, which mad me more determined to make more so that I could stop the unpicking!!

Next I saw a cute pencil pouch posted by a number of instagramers…I ordered the pattern from  Prettybyhand and had such a fun time making it!  I decided that I needed another pencil pouch but not that particular size so I made one smaller.

This smaller one is going to hold my extra camera batteries, cords, and charger…I love this size!!


The next pouch I feel in love with was another one by Kristine Czepuryk.  She is the same gal who created the pencil pouch.  Here is her link again…Kristyne or Google Prettybyhand.  Look for Amy’s Pretty Pockets

I have fallen madly in love with my walking foot during the creation of these pouches!!

Last but not least…there will be MORE!!!

I love lipstick and I carry many lipsticks on me.  The bag I had bought just wasn’t big enough so I stopped using it…until now!  Look how adorable they turned out!!  I made one for me and one for Cyndy, my sister in-law and best friend.  I let her pick which one she wanted first…
