Thou Shalt Not SWEAR!......or say naughty words!

So, did you know in the scriptures it says we, you, me, us should ..."swear not at all........." "hold your tongue....." So, I have been trying really hard when I get mad or frustrated NOT to let one little tiny BAD word come out of my mouth! Well, it's NOT working! I mean, good hell, sometimes there is nothing better than letting out a blue~streak of profanities to vent your mental melt down! :) Just Kidding!! hahhaaaaa!

Really, for FHE one night we decided that we all call too many names and say too many naughty words.....you know, like idiot, butt-hole (thanx Keith), retard, dip, dinkus, stupid....and so on..... WE decided to write all of our bad words on a piece of paper, put them into a jar and bury them away, NEVER to think about them or use them again! It has only been a couple of weeks, but we are doing awesome! Sometimes we slip...but, for the most part we just say .... "ugh" and walk away and sing our favorite song! Hopefully we can keep this up and put smiles on each others faces!

Wow...I'm so impressed. One..that you have family home evening, and two that you don't call your kids little shits. What do you call them when you're chucking things at them?? :) I'm quite impressed..really...good work. I might try that around here.

K, I don't know if I am laughing harder at your post or at Mandy's comment. You know, she brings up a good point. Way to go with the FHE lesson. I love it.

Mandy, I don't know why you are shocked....we DO TRY to have FHE and read our scriptures and talk about Jesus and say our prayers! That does NOT mean we don't get mad and loose control and have "mommy-dearest"~ "devil-children" moments!!! ....I mean, we can't all be as sweet as Stacey can we?

Great idea. Like burying your weapons of war. Way to go.

Mandy said...

No...we can't, and I'm the first to admit that I have my share of mommy dearest moments....but yours always seem to take the cake. Remember when you threw 1/2 gallon of frozen ice cream at Kaden and Alec in the car? Classic, classic memories! :) I really am proud of you. :):)
