This Is Just a Phase

Jesus Christ, Savior and Redeemer

The Marathon

Have you ever run a marathon?   For many families, participating in a marathon is a relatively rare opportunity. I know there are a number of folks that would like to run the St George marathon for instance, but for one reason or another, they have been unable to...

When Did Following The Prophet Become Bad?

I’ve seen a disturbing bit of action going on around the blogosphere and social media. People who call themselves good Latter-day Saints are attacking people who stand up for the Church or announce that they follow the prophet. They try to paint them as people who...

A Butterfly in the Ecosystem

I'm captivated butterflies and moths.  When working, I sit facing exterior windows. Butterflies and moths flit about my yard, sometimes not landing on anything, but just diving and rising in a dance before my eyes. Sometimes there are groups of butterflies.  But most...

Choose the Lord’s Way

Does the Lord care about the individual? I see how the Lord moves people and uses their experiences and strengths to bless others’ lives. These individuals are making a tremendous impact in the world around them.   But what about regular people?   Like me.   What...

Part of Your Family

I was in the check out line at Target chatting with the woman behind me and the checker.  The checker was sharing that she would complete her 8-hour shift, go home, and still stay on her feet, to make macaroni and cheese for her family.  At first, I thought she meant...

Helping Kids Keep the Sabbath Day Holy

If your kids are anything like my kids, the first thing they want to do on Sunday morning is turn on the television. At our house, cartoon exposure tends to stop at our two local PBS stations, meaning what they normally watch is all educational. Unfortunately when...

Every Step of the Way

One of the premier privileges of living in the western United States is the opportunity to delight in the mountains and to take occasion to enjoy them from afar and up close. Every state I have lived in has unique and wonderful mountains that to me are incredible....

Twelve Months of Christmas

As a senior citizen, I sometimes find myself asking the same question children ask on vacation, “Are we there yet?” I try very hard to be a good disciple of Christ, but am I really? I feel like I’m progressing, but taking baby steps. At this point in my life, I should...

Change/ Mortality

Change   Slowly drifting far away within the wood of bonded clay breaking bands with public light which skews amongst the cabin's fright   "take me on (I want to stay?) it won't be long before I say that moving forward, back to sea was simply where I had to be."   But...

Surviving Dumb, Cold Mistakes

I shivered constantly as I huddled on the ground asking my handcart pioneers to help me survive until morning. The temperature dropped into the 30's and I wore a T-shirt, shorts and a light jacket my cousin lent me. I'd never been so cold in my life.   The daytime...

Amelia Earhart

I don’t read very often for pleasure, just not my thing.  However, I have always been interested in Amelia Earhart.  A few years ago, I read two biographies about Amelia, back-to-back.  One appeared to be sponsored by her family, and the other by her husband or...

Treat Others with Kindness

How we deal with other people has always been a big thing at my house. At least once or twice a day the kid’s will hear something to the effect of, “Be nice to each other” or “Treat each other with kindness.” If I could open up my kids’ heads and cross-stitch this...

The Great Hunt
