In the middle of a worldwide pandemic, great blessings have come to my family. My emotions have been all over the place, but I will try to pull myself together long enough to get some thoughts down. My purpose today is to emphasize how important it is for each one of...

Russell M Nelson’s Global Prayer of Gratitude

How Will You Measure Your Life?

How Will You Measure Your Life?

What makes writing a family history one that others will really want to read? Why should you even consider doing it? I believe it is largely because of the people in your life.   J.K. Rowling, who lived in poverty as a single mother, wrote the initial chapters...

Autism Is Like A Face Mask

Autism Is Like A Face Mask

Did you know that someone with Autism has a hard time reading all the facial expressions that are covered by a face mask? Learning this tidbit has opened my eyes to just how much difficulty with communication someone with Autism must have.   And the crazy thing...

Pleasure or Paradise

Pleasure or Paradise

We are so often confused. Differing political opinions pull us to and fro. The lifestyles of the rich and famous seem to emulate a way to happiness we long to follow, and yet their behavior often leads to what looks like misery and despair. How can we find happiness...

Loving What I Do

Loving What I Do

Love God. Love your fellowmen. We all know that, but have we really acknowledged why we are supposed to be loving? Why we are supposed to do those things? I know that for me, I have often thought that we do what we do because it makes others happy.   That may be...

Silence the Noise

Silence the Noise

I’m writing this on an incredibly silent morning. My husband and my dog are both still asleep. My parakeet isn’t even chirping in my ear. There have been no cars racing down the street. I’ve heard no airplanes overhead, nor trains on the tracks. Whatever small sounds...

Managing Disappointment

Managing Disappointment

We just had elections here in the USA. And no matter who you are, you are feeling a little disappointment about how things have turned out. Some of you had your candidate loose, and some still don’t know.   It’s been a week and things are still in the air in some...

About Death — Brigham Young on “Where Am I Going?”

About Death — Brigham Young on “Where Am I Going?”

Over the last two months, death jumped to the forefront of my mind. An incredible amount of friends' loved ones or family pets have passed away. I've never felt more aware of our collective mortality with its associated death, sorrow, grief, and hope as I have during...

Seek Unity And Civility

Seek Unity And Civility

There is a lot of contention in the world around us. The presidential election for 2020 is only a few days away. And social media is awash in opinion and heated debate as each person makes a case for their candidate. But today in Sunday School I was reminded of the...

The Fragile Gift of Freedom, Pt I

The Fragile Gift of Freedom, Pt I

At the start of the Revolutionary War, Thomas Paine penned these words:   “These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; “but he that stands by it now,...

Places of Security

Places of Security

We all want to feel safe and protected. We all need a place we can go to retreat from the world. I’ve been thinking a lot about what President Russell M. Nelson said about places of security to the women of the Church in the Women’s Session of the October 2020 General...

Peace In This World

Peace In This World

Standing With the Steadfast and Immovable Trees
