A Little on the Wife

My name is Maggie and I am the wife of an American hero. We have been happily married for almost  10 years, we married in the Houston LDS Temple back on May 21st of 2004.  My life has only been richly blessed since I have been married.  Marriage has been a learning experience for me and I have come to embrace it with open arms, I know now that the second smartest thing I could have done in my life after accepting the gospel of Jesus Christ was to get married in the temple as the Lord would have wanted me to. Even though I have taken  the proper steps to follow the Lord's will I can't say life and marriage has been easy but it certainly has been easier. And though we are constantly face with opposition in our life we still get to see great blessings in our lives. Although I am always learning and growing in my marriage we decided to take on another challenge, having children. Motherhood has been a bit of  learning curve, I have learned that my children make be a much better person. I want to be the parent they need  to help them  feel the Savior's love in their lives and have them know that I am doing the best I can to help them return with our Heavenly Father. I stay home with my kids not because I want to save money, but because I love being with my kids, it took me a while to actually learn how to love spending time with them but now that I know I don't want to leave their side. Kids are awesome, fun people. I truly enjoyed the whisperings of the Spirit in my home, and the laughter and happiness my children bring me. Our family has grown so much in the last 10 years and I it has been beautiful!! We are happy to be a family forever!!
