Day 122, April 30

As so often happens, it appears that I'm not finished with yesterday's subject.

"Creativity takes courage."  I would like to reverse that to "Courage takes creativity."

In our ward (congregation) are several families whom I greatly admire for their courage and their creativity.  Each of these families has a large number of children, with the mothers electing to remain at home.  Money is tight, but these families make do.  Could they survive without the courage and creativity they exhibit?  I doubt it.

Living on a modest income isn't easy, but these families make it look so.  Savvy shopping, couponing, bartering, a willingness to do without luxuries--these families do it all, including paying tithing and fast offerings.  And they do it with a willing heart.

Creativity and courage come in all shapes and sizes.

So, for today, I am grateful for families who are courageously creative.


  1. truly a courageous endeavor.

  2. I like this concept about being creatively courageous.
