I've been doing a lot of this lately.

I'm trying to make a very important decision and
I want to know God's will for me.
Is my life complete with four "nestlings" or
is there another child yet to join our nest?
I always wanted four children,
beyond that has always been a question mark for me.

I was blessed to have two girls and two boys.
I like my even number.
My girls share a room. My boys share a room.
It's perfect.

Why have another child then?
Well, while I feel content with my four "nestlings," the "husbird" wants more.

We both desire to know what God wants for us.
I'll let you know when we figure it out.

"As you submit your wills to God, you are giving Him the only thing you can actually give Him that is really yours to give. Don't wait too long to find the altar or to begin to place the gift of your wills upon it! No need to wait for a receipt; the Lord has His own special ways of acknowledging."
Neal A. Maxwell, "Remember How Merciful the Lord Hath Been," Ensign, May 2004


  1. I know exactly what you are going through!
    We are at that crossroads ourselves.
    I think you are doing exactly what you should be doing...praying and seeking!

  2. Oh...forgot to tell you...I signed up to "follow"! :)

  3. You're so sweet Emily. I know you'll find the right decision.

  4. Such a sweet post. You have it exactly right though... God will show you His plan! Just found your blog and I am lovin' it!


  5. Hi there,
    I found your blog yesterday and was reading alot of it today. I originally found it from the laundry soap recipe (I use the powder version!) I can so relate to this! We have twin boys that are 9 and we have a 21 month old baby girl. We both want another one, praying it is in God's plan for us! :)
