God Loves His Children

God loves His children...he really does!

The past couple weeks I have felt so much love from my Heavenly Father. I'll share some experiences in more detail later, but tonight before I go to bed I just wanted to share that I know that God knows all of His children and what they are going through. He knows what makes them happy, what makes them sad, and everything in between. This past weekend was General Conference for my church. General Conference is something that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has twice a year where our prophet and apostles and other leaders speak on various topics and give us guidance and direction. I  grew up as a member of this church my whole life, so conference has never been something new to me (and to be honest when I was little it wasn't all that exciting), but this year General Conference just hit me hard and was so powerful. I felt so strongly that God is always working to help us all get on the right path to happiness and righteousness through His prophets and apostles, and through the inspiration of those around us. Here is one of my favorite talks from this conference. Even if you are not LDS, and even if you don't have any of these specific struggles, this talk gives so much hope and offers so much peace as we are all battling to be successful in such a hectic world. I'll post more of my favorites later. But for now, enjoy!

Origami Owl Locket Giveaway!

Today I am giving a shout out to my friend Kirstie over at The Semler Life who is doing the most adorable giveaway! This is not a sponsored post...I just think it is really cute and wanted to tell you all about it! Basically these little "lockets" are customizable with different charms inside them. Go check out the giveaway and enter here! The giveaway ends on October 6th, so get your entries in! I'm definitely going to (being on a shopping fast makes giveaways or anything possibly free just that much more exciting).

P.S. I've heard people say that giveaways aren't worth entering. Obviously if you are not that interested in what is being given away it's not worth it... but I randomly won a Shabby Apple giveaway a few months ago (which was funny because at the time I was interning for them so Shabby Apple so I was extra interested in their dresses) and I was like entry 1,050 or something crazy like that. So that kept me trying with giveaways. So go check it out, and good luck!!

P.S. again...Just Buttons & Bows is just about ready to be re-opened so I'm looking for people who would either like to do reviews or giveaways with me with some adorable bows on their blog. Let me know if you're interested!
