Why Mormons Don't Have Monsters Under Their Beds

"Why don't Mormons have monsters hiding under their beds?"

Answer: because of this-

Seriously, every bed in my house has boxes of food storage under it. This summer I got on a big food storage kick and started collecting food storage to go with my flour, sugar, and wheat. Things I added where stuff like powdered eggs, powdered whip-cream, powdered milk, powdered honey, and dried fruits and veggies.

On the same note of monsters hiding under the bed, Kal'el has been really into monsters lately, but I haven't had the same issues with him being afraid of monsters as some families do.

Here are a few things I've done to EMPOWER Kal'el against the monsters hiding in the closet (since there is no room under the bed.)

1. I got him into karate classes.
When he starts talking about the scary monsters in the closet I tell him, "Kal'el, you know karate. If the monsters come near you just show them your moves and they will leave you alone."
He really liked that one and will go through his forms and kiai. He know those monsters where afraid  of him now.

2. I made him a bottle of Monster Spray.

 8 oz of water 
 8 drops of Lavender oil 
2 drops of Frankincense

This solution works wonders and is completely safe for children. It won't stain bedding and its safe to use around animals.

Lavender has a natural calming affect. Frankincense relieves stress and uplifts your mood. This combination is perfect for kids trying to sleep when there are monsters in the closet. 

I let Kal'el spray in the closet (which makes the clothes smell good) and spray anywhere else he thinks monsters might be hiding. He feels so good about himself after he does this.

3. The Darth Vader Sword

Kal'el has been into Darth Vader lately and got a small light up Darth Vader sword for using the bathroom consistently. 
He turns on his light up sword and prepares to fight monsters that may sneak into his room.

4. Just Pray.
Heavenly Father will protect you.

I love these empowering tools.

Here is a WAY CUTE song about why kids shouldn't be afraid of monsters:
