The Gift of Living Prophets

As a member of the LDS church, we are blessed and privileged to hear the words of our loving and living prophet twice a year.  This is called General Conference.  When I was a wee lass, we watched it on the television, and I admit, I thought it was boring!  But now...

The Joyful Gospel

I recently attended a stake conference (meeting of several local congregations in a geographical district) which kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire meeting. This article is the product of that enlightening, delightful, and joyful conference.   The...

Moments of Choice

These moments are ones I cherish.   Without irony or Abuse of the word; The ones where the house smells of apple And is vacuumed.   All of the children are home and I am in the Kitchen, cooking dinner, hearing: Laughter from outside, Tutoring math problems...

A Tool With Greater Purpose

“My companion is the biggest tool I’ve ever known!”   My overly loud laugh rang out with our congregation’s as we processed through this missionary’s double meaning, when he finished his thought, “He’s a tool in the Lord’s hands!” All of us listened as he shared...

Our Joy

Dear Family,   We struggled selecting each of you children’s names. How could we not? Having all of you and raising a family was the most significant undertaking of our lives. But the amazement doesn’t stop there. I knew rearing family would be my premiere...

Do We Know What We Are Eating?

Why are there so many foods in our diet that are bad for us? And how is this affecting our overall health and how well our bodies function?   This article is going to be more of a series of questions for readers to think about than an article where everything is...

The Love of My Life

She likes to watch "Chick Flicks." Her favorite programs usually involve puppy love. She is unusually emotional. Her faith often exceeds mine.   When I put on my best clothes and combed my hair in preparation for the dance that evening, I had no idea that my life...

What Do You Know?

"What's this nameless book of yours about, then... if it exists?" "It's... about... the end of the world. As seen through the eyes of God."  "Oh, dear. Did no one tell you to write about what you know?" (Conversation between Katie and James in The Decoy Bride.)  ...

Doing Hard Things

I had the most wonderful opportunity last weekend to take a hike with my oldest and my youngest. There is an 18 year span but you would never know it as they are close. This hike was on Camelback Mountain: one of the most popular places to hike in Phoenix, Arizona....

The Burdens that Remain – Carrying the Lord’s Yoke

Matthew 11:28-30 28 ¶ Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light....

Make Your Companion Laugh Game

Pranks. Practical Jokes. Dastardly deeds of trickery. What to send our missionary for the First of April in two weeks? Hmm …   After brainstorming for a bit, I decided to create my own “Make Your Companion Laugh Game”.   First, I searched online for the...

Spiritual Tornadoes

We have lived in Kansas for just about one year. In that time, we have experienced several tornado watches, and a handful of tornado warnings. The first time I heard the tornado warning sirens go off, I was surprised at my panic. How could we have come to live in a...

Blind

Seeing but do not see   Ever wondered if you would have accepted the message of Jesus Christ had you been living in Jerusalem in those former days? How would things be different?   I would like to think that I would have been a faithful disciple and walked...

A Woman’s Role in the Church in the Last Days

I come from a long line of strong (and opinionated) women. We are not marshmallows. On the contrary, we might be described as prickly cacti. While the prickly pear cactus has warts of deadly thorns, it also produces gorgeous blossoms and contains luscious liquid that...

Chasing Away the Winter Blues

With all the political drama from the news and several winter storms passing through our country, we need a little lighthearted pick up as daylight saving time starts and we move into spring. Sometime we need a break from the world and cannot always get away because...

Missionary Left-Overs

Over almost two decades of married life, we have had the missionaries over for dinner a lot! We’ve collected quite a few memorable moments during these wonderful meals together.   Like the time a missionary got up from the table in the middle of our spaghetti...

And it Came to Pass

One of the greatest pieces of motherhood advice finally clicked for me in the middle of the night.   I was nursing my sixth child. He was still nursing two to three times a night, even though he was reaching the age where most babies learn to sleep for much...
