I'm Andrea, and this is my personal blog. Thanks for being here! I usually post on Fridays and Sundays, when I share something that makes me happy or a spiritual thought for the week. Sometimes I manage to squeeze in another post or two.

Feel free to leave a comment--I'd love to hear what you have to say! You can also reach me at teachmetowalk [at] hotmail [dot] com.

Cars Capture the Castle

The Boy's toy castle has been overrun with...

LEGO cars, of course. What did you expect?

Purposefully Living

[Faith, by Liz Lemon Swindle]
"I think of our Lord and Exemplar, Jesus Christ, and His short life among the people of Galilee and Jerusalem. I have tried to imagine Him bustling between meetings or multitasking to get a list of urgent things accomplished. 

"I can't see it.

"Instead I see the compassionate and caring Son of God purposefully living each day."

-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

A Little Bit of Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day was busy. Here are a couple of V-Day highlights. (Excuse the photo quality, blah blah blah. It was night time, I had my flash on, and a not-so-good photo is better than no photo at all, as far as memory preservation goes.)

Anyway. The Boy made valentines for his grandparents. We started out with the embroidered card tutorial I blogged about earlier, and we ended up with this:

And the cookies. Oh my heck. Delicious.

I used cherry juice in the frosting. Pink, cherry-flavored frosting is better than red dye #40 any day--and especially on Valentine's Day.

If You Don't Believe

"God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He can't if you don't pray, and He can't if you don't dream. In short, He can't if you don't believe."

Happy Valentine's and Friday! (Or Something...)

Dang it, I meant to blog earlier this week, but here we are on Friday again. Ah, well. Life got in the way, I guess.

Today is not JUST Friday...it's the Friday before Valentine's Day. So, here's a Valentine's Day giggle for you (the Trotsky one gets me every time):

He Is...

"True believers worship that Holy Being who 'made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters' (Revelation 14:7). He is the father of spirits with whom we dwelt before the foundations of the earth were laid. He is our Father in Heaven, who ordained and established a plan of salvation by which his spirit children might advance and progress and become like him."

Happy Friday and Whatnot

Okay, so I've got a couple of things for you today.

First, I just updated my Groundhog Day pinboard. (It used to have TWO pins on it. Now it has...um. More than two.) So click through for some G'hog Day crafts, learning activities, that kind of thing.

Second, it's Friday! Here's a little fellow that made me laugh. He'd like you to join him in wearing a ridiculous hat:

Happy Friday!
