While taking just a few moments during my day on the computer I saw an email come in from the Church.  My inbox is never empty, and there is always something to do. For some reason I took the moment and clicked on the email, and found the blog post Come as you are; Bring … Continue reading Our imperfect self is good enough

A Friend’s Voice – Seth – Understanding Scrupulosity

I have been blessed with the friendship of fellow littles (AB/DL) in my journey to understand myself, and the journey my wife and I are on incorporating diapers into our lives.  The first, real connection and what I now consider a friendship comes from a friend we’ll call Seth.

Principle 12 – I [was] desirous that my family should partake

*Sorry for missing my Sunday post.  I have been unavailable, and have been playing catch up with my study of the last principle.  I also didn’t realize how much I would have to write about this last principle, but I feel like I am using it to wrap up my study of this book.  In … Continue reading Principle 12 – I [was] desirous that my family should partake

It is a struggle every day, every day, every day

This morning I began the day feeling off.  I had the prompting to open my laptop and write something.  I didn’t know what I would write, but felt that being able to type out what I was feeling would help me get my day started off better.  I had previously put a few notes down … Continue reading It is a struggle every day, every day, every day

Principle 11 – Counsel With the Lord in All Thy Doings

While studying for this chapter I found some quote that spoke about the future, and how business leaders and innovators look to the future. "Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards." -- Søren Kierkegaard "A person can change his future by merely changing his attitude." -- Earl Nightingale "Always remember … Continue reading Principle 11 – Counsel With the Lord in All Thy Doings

Heart to Heart – Principle 10, Retain A Remission of Your Sins

My thoughts feel more like notes this week. My studies were different than that past few, so how I recorded my thoughts about this principle definitely feel like they are reflected in these words. The process becomes cyclical.  We begin to see a pattern in behavior where we must return to earlier principles and reapply … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principle 10, Retain A Remission of Your Sins

Heart to Heart – Principe 8, They Buried [Their] Weapons of War, for Peace

How hard is it to be a peacemaker?  How hard is it to WANT to be a peacemaker.   Recently, I’ve found myself in the middle of some family tension that I did not create.  Also, I have found tension and issue at work that is the same. I do not believe that I caused the … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principe 8, They Buried [Their] Weapons of War, for Peace

What do we resolve to be?

During this time of the year there is an abundance of gym memberships, goals, and fad-dieting brought into people’s lives.  We want to make changes, but do we commit? Do we resolve to change ourselves?  The definition of resolve uses the words “firm determination” more than once in its various definitions.  We all want to: … Continue reading What do we resolve to be?

The Gift, small yet precious acts of service

A simple act of kindness causes and endless ripple.  So often in our lives as Adult Babies we find ourselves looking in, shamed of ourselves and what we experience daily.  The knowledge that we are aberrant does not escape us.  Knowing can compound our feelings, and push us deeper inside ourselves.  Most, if not all, … Continue reading The Gift, small yet precious acts of service

Heart to Hearth – Principle 7, And never, Until I did cry out

This principle opens with making examples of external and internal controls.  We must learn how to live eternal principles while battling internal and external forces. It speaks of having all desire to do evil removed, and not because we have some external force assisting us or controlling us to behave. One thing that I have … Continue reading Heart to Hearth – Principle 7, And never, Until I did cry out
