Serving and Forgiving = Healed and Strength

I took this picture in the Nauvoo Temple grounds on our family vacation this past summer.  I love this quote by Jose L. Alonso from our most recent General Conference and thought it fits it well.

 It’s so true! When we serve and forgive others it will give us strength to overcome our trials and be healed.



Leaf Mazes – and it’s meaning

Have you ever made leaf mazes? It’s one of my favorite fall activities. You can take a rake when there is fallen leaves all over the ground, and make trails in it. You connect them all together until at last you have a maze, every maze has one exit, and one large room which you can always find. I think is sort of like life, the large room is a church, which no matter your problems, you can always find safety and peace inside it’s walls. I think the one exit, goes along with the trials we face – there is always an end…

First day of fall! 

Don’t you just love the smell of Autumn air? I look forward to it every year. One of my favorite parts of this season is to wear all of my fall fashions…Especially boots! Who does not like to wear them? They are so fun!

I think this season represents getting renewed, and having a second chance. The leaves fall down from the tree, and after winter comes, spring arises! Then the trees will bring new leaves and blossoms! It’s such a wonderful thing isn’t it? 

What’s your favorite part about fall? Put it in the comments below! 


To Be Worthy

Living worthy doesn’t mean we have to be perfect. In Sunday School we talked about ordinances and covenants and the celestial kingdom and the ordinances you need to have done to be able to enter it. Somewhere in our discussion (I think it was when we were reading the First Presidency Message in For the Strength of Youth) we came across something that said 

“We should always live worthy to enter the temple. The Lord will bless us for our efforts”


Marigold Girls has been here for a year! – 1st Anniversary 

Wow. One year has gone by since we opened up this blog…That’s amazing. Me & Autumn opened it up on July the 27th 2016

Each moment is special, and we should treasure it in our hearts.  I am so happy about our progress, and hope that it brings. The world is a wonderful place, created by God. 

We each are a part of a bigger, must more grand picture, which can only be viewed from above, or rather Heavenly Father. 

 When I was little, I loved puzzles. I remember putting each piece in, and looking at the whole picture. Because if one piece was missing, the puzzle was incomplete. Each and every one of us are important, and amazingly gifted.

 Autumn and I made Marigold Girl’s as a place for girls who have faith, & believe in God, who are rising to become beautiful queens, to come together & share our stories, learned lessons, & quotes/scriptures. 

Please share this blog to your friends & family…Let’s make the connection bigger! Don’t forget that we’re also on other social media like:

  • Instagram 
  • Facebook 
  • YouTube

Bye for now!

Who are you & who do you want to be? Marigold – Walnut

For those who study plants, they will know that the Marigold flower helps growing plants around them.  Its bright yellow face is said to be a second sun to the plants, helping them flourish in light and happiness. They are said to heal any physical pain, such as small cuts and bruises. Their happy faces are cheery and uplifting…

However, the walnut tree, (while it grows) produces a toxin that stunts growth and wilts all the plants around it. Eventually, killing its neighbors.

You can choose to help people grow, and help them see their own potential…Or you can choose to be like a Walnut tree,  which discourages, diminishes, and can hurt others. In our family, we call bad words, & acts, poison, because it spreads nastiness all around.

I love this question – are you a Marigold or a Walnut? Because the meaning is pretty much in a lot of books/movies such as, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings, etc. Good or Bad/light or dark is throughout in a lot of stories…Sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives that we forget why we are here on Earth.

Marigold Girls was made because we wanted to make the world a better place for girls like us…

Who are you & who do you want to be?

Be A Candle!

Recently, Jocelyn asked us to be a tree and stand firm for our beliefs. Today I want to ask you to be a candle (even though candles and trees aren’t usually a good combination, today they are!). In Luke chapter 11, verses 35-36, it says:

35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

36 If thy whole body therefore be‍ full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

I also found this neat picture:

Here's a thought I leave you to ponder... Light has no shadow! The Bible says... "God is light; in him there is no darkness at all" 1 John 1:5.:

Isn’t it so cool?

Light has no shadow! So when we have the light of God, there will be no evil in us and that’s what we want, isn’t it?! Another way to say that is: If there is no evil in us, then we have the light of God. People around us notice our light. Many times people have asked a member of the Church how they always have this bright glow around them, or how their eyes have such a SPARKLE in them. When we have the pure light of God, we can share it with others and help them receive that light! (Can you tell I love this topic?) 🙂
