Welcome to a new series I am starting where I share a little motivational thought every Sunday. I hope that this quick little read will help motivate and inspire you for the new week!
You will read this multiple times here on Pennies Into Pearls but I am all about FREE printables! I love to print them off, frame them, and put them up in my house as a reminder to stay happy and motivated.
This past week I have been preparing for a lesson I am teaching at church today. I chose the topic of being grateful since this month we get to celebrate Thanksgiving. I ran across this video that shares the idea of Thanksgiving everyday!
I have recently been trying to make Sunday a special day where I refocus and rest from my normal weekly tasks. Doesn’t that sound nice? It really is, you should try it!
I am a Mormon and believe that Sunday is a special day referred to as the Sabbath. By setting apart the Sabbath as a special day we can “show God our willingness to keep our covenants.”
Through doing this I know that we will be blessed and our minds and bodies will be rejuvenated for our upcoming week.
One of my favorite and frugal ways to refresh my décor is to frame cute printables. Having these motivational thoughts throughout our home is a great way to remind and encourage our family to always be striving to do better. I want to share these with your family!
If you haven’t been, it is a must see if you are ever in town for a visit! The interactive show tells the story of the Mormon Battalion’s journey to San Diego. These families were faced with many trials, which I am not sure I would have been able to handle.
Despite the sickness, physical pains, and discouragement they faced on a daily basis, they always decided to “choose to be happy.” Don’t you love that? I love that it’s clear that it is a choice to be happy. No matter what your circumstances, you can choose to be happy!

What a great example of being optimistic and positive. I don’t know about you but this attitude is one I would love our family to adopt.
Enjoy your free printable and I hope you have a great Sabbath!
One of my favorite things about Sunday is that it is a day that I like to use to refresh myself and be uplifted. I want to share that with you!
Today I am going to be sharing an uplifting thought that I love along with a free printable. So go ahead and print it out, frame it up, and display it somewhere around your home to inspire you throughout the week.
With it now being June I was in the Father’s Day spirit and decided that this week’s motivational post would be focused around our Heavenly Father and a quote about faith in Him.
I know that we do have a God in heaven who is our Heavenly Father. I know that He knows each one of us on a very personal level and He has love for us as individuals far beyond anything we can comprehend.
I know that our Heavenly Father knows and loves you!
Let’s say you woke up this morning and realized you had an extra $500 in your bank account! What would you do with it?
An extra $500! This could be your reality!
Do you know how much your family spends on food each month? That includes all the stops for snacks or fast food. If you don’t know already, you are going to be shocked when you tally up the numbers!
On average, a family of four in America spends $800-$1,000 a month on food. That is probably even a little conservative! If this happens to be where your spending falls, I have the perfect solution for you!
Meal planning is how we reduced our family’s food spending from $900 down to under $400 a month and that is for a family of 5!
I love taking the time at the start of a new year to write down a couple different goals. It’s such a great time to reflect on the past year and look for opportunities to improve. There is always room for growth, right!
The first Monday of the year my family likes to take the night to sit down together and plan out some simple goals. Since we were in need, I decided to put together this cute little resolution sheet. I made them 4×6 so I can put them up in a group picture frame, this way we can have something cute but also a reminder of our goals up in our home. We will see how long it takes before I make it to the store to pick out a frame… But we did fill them out already, so step one, check!
Like I said, I created them at 4”x6” but you can download and save the image and resize it in pretty much any program, I have used Word to do this. So here you go you can download it here.
Happy New Year! Let me know on Facebook or Twitter how your family used this!
Happy Friday! This year I have been feeling like I need to spend a little more time focusing on the reason I celebrate Christmas. So I decided today I wanted to share some Christmas spirit! So here is a free printable for you and let’s be honest, it’s for me also. It’s for all of us, just a little reminder of the reason behind the season!
You can download it here, print, and frame it for a simple and frugal way to bring a little more Christmas into your home.
I hope you are taking the time to really enjoy this Christmas! Trying not to get caught up in the “hustle and bustle”. Today is a reminder to myself to make time to play with my kids, hold my husbands hand, look for opportunities to serve and refocus my thoughts on what really is important.
