Baby Steps

[Image from Martha Stewart Crafts]

"by small and simple things are great things brought to pass."
Alma 37:6

Have you ever tried to imagine what it must have been like to take your very first step? Chubby and clumsy. Barely able to stand. Being cheered on by a parent and video taped for the whole world to see. How much faith that must have required and how scary that had to have been.

Sometimes I think about that and how brave I was even as a little baby. Suddenly having to confront a fear. This can be so terrifying. Doing what we are uncomfortable with can sometimes give us major anxiety but once we approach it with a determined look in our eye all we must do is step. Just breath and step. Breath PRAY and then step. Pretty soon those small and simple acts, that once scared the jeebies out of us, will bring about some pretty great things.

What are some of your fears?

Oh! And I found a cute blog that had some free tutorials on different baby shoes. If I didn't have a kabillion other things to work on for Christmas right now I would stop and make a few of these.
