My name is Carrie Groneman and I LOVE people, families and daily trying to become more Christ-like.
As a young person the direction and guidance was not always available to me of how to live a life of high morals or correct principles. Later as a new mom and raising children, it became even more apparent to me the importance of having a strong Christian foundation in my own life, as well as providing virtuous teaching to my family.
The world has a constant shifting view of what is right and what is wrong in standards. Unfortunately, that provides a shaky ground to stand on, one much like quick sand.
Quick sand is not sturdy and cannot support weight. So when trials come and times are difficult, we and our family members have no grounding to hold us up if we are only standing on what outside ever-changing forces tell us – quicksand advice.

These are the reasons I have this blog!

It is to help us sink our feet deep onto solid ground based on true principles that have proven over time to withstand the winds of hardship and storms of difficulty in life. That will help us hold fast through the burdens we carry, even feelingjoy!

My goal is to help us become our best self; one we can be the most proud of.

Looking at the names and faces of those who have gone before us, do we have an example to follow? Can we be one of the faces that is regarded with love, thought of as leaving an honorable legacy and setting a righteous example despite the effects?

We can Become that pattern for our loved ones and so much more, here together as friends.

What I Believe

I believe we are all children of a Heavenly Father, which gives every one of us infinite worth and value beyond measure. I believe each of us have a unique purpose and mission to fulfill here on earth, meaning our divine gift of agency is to be used with gratitude and care. I believe the family can be together forever, and that it is ordained of God.

I believe in a living and loving God and in our Savior Jesus Christ. That they are involved in the details of our daily life; always there to comfort, lift and help. I know we will have the most peace, joy and happiness if we follow and pattern our life after Jesus Christ.
