t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


I am a Child of God

I am a Child of God.

There is so much in that simple phrase.

A lifetime worth of teaching moments for my children.

I am so grateful for a religion which helps me understand I am a daughter of God. We are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. Families are eternal. The gift of temples ensures I will be with my family through the eternities.

My sister and I spent an afternoon at the LDS Church History Museum. Our children ran around wildly.... and I hope gleaned a bit of these glorious truths.
Emmett snuggling with the little lambs surround the manger scene, where the children relive and place themselves in those first precious moments of the Saviors life.

Callista with Aunt Amy and cousin Noelle. Building little temples.

Ellery and cousin Elizabeth. Caring for the little ones....as mothers do, as the Savior did.
