Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported. I guess that's the main thing - for them to have a sense that this is an important step in their spiritual growth, and that people they know, love and respect have taken the time out of their lives to let them know that!

Works for me Wednesday- The Firm Upper Body Shape Up rotation.


A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the Compendium for ALL of the Firm workouts (except the newest ones with the Wave). It really is a wealth of information for all of the tapes, but my favorite part is the tape rotation section towards the end of the document. This month I am doing the Upper Body Shape Up Rotation found on page 334. I picked that one because I already had a lot of the tapes and was able to purchase the rest of them on Amazon at very low prices.

These just rotate through the  five weeks and most of them are used in other rotations.  I estimate through Amazon you could probably get all of these together for under $50 and your highest costs would be shipping!

Since I still have younger kids it's really hard for me to find a way to sneak out of the house to run or bike and I find when I take my littlest with me to do either of those things I don't get much of a work out, though I do have a lot of fun!  So for me, being able to work out at home while my children are playing or sleeping is the best.

Works for Me!
