Sœur Summer Spendlove and Her Miracle on a Friday

Sœur Summer Spendlove and Her Miracle on a Friday

I received an amazing miracle story from Sœur Summer Spendlove. I love and celebrate stories of miracles and being an instrument in the hand of God.  I treasure these stories in our lives. This story that Sœur Summer Spendlove shared showed ways she heard the voice of...

Specific Prayers

Specific Prayers

After a few days of sporadic and rushed scripture study, I realized I had not really prayed to ask God for help as I tried to learn more about overcoming fear with faith. Well, I had prayed, but it was more of a general prayer that my heart was not really into. I had...

Hike the Mountain

Hike the Mountain

I am not an avid hiker. So, when my husband invited me to hike Table Mountain with him, I was skeptical. Fourteen miles round trip on a trail rated difficult.    But hoping it would be a fun, shared experience for us, I chose to go.    We began our climb...

Unity

Unity

Many of us have struggled to make sense out of injustice and civil unrest in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. It seems everyone is cranky these days. Quarantine, claustrophobia, record-breaking temperatures, hurricanes, political nastiness, injustice, and civil...

Courageous Parenting: Teenagers Are Fun

Courageous Parenting: Teenagers Are Fun

Teenagers are fun.   That statement draws a lot of attention. Some parents are afraid of their teenagers, while others enjoy the time their children are in their teens. It takes courageous parents to guide their teenage children through the pitfalls and bumps in...

Too Busy to Be Doing Good

Too Busy to Be Doing Good

I remember once hearing someone say that they feel so much satisfaction when they are busy. What is that about? Why do we tend to correlate busy with successful? I have a friend whom I adore dearly who is always busy, always tired, and always overdrawn. When I ask her...

God Wants a Powerful People

Admittedly, if you participated in the recent general conference sessions of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you watched an unprecedented gathering that is still just in its beginning. Millions around the world view or listen in more than 90 languages...

Ways to Make Your Classroom More Autism Friendly

Ways to Make Your Classroom More Autism Friendly

With school starting again I have been thinking about our kids with Autism, Sensory integration disorder, anxiety, and all types of special needs. How can teachers and schools make their classroom environment a better place to learn? This topic came up in discussion...

Crying Out to be Delivered

Crying Out to be Delivered

The kids had been climbing every rock we passed along the trail in American Fork Canyon. We paused and chatted as they scampered up and around and down the huge boulders. Along the trail was a particularly gigantic rock. The sign next to it said, "Sliding Rock." The...

Christ is the Difference

Christ is the Difference

How often does something ordinary or common stand out significantly later on?   That may not sound too amazing now, but I remember when the Internet was first launched to the public. It was small and incomplete. Most of the things you would search for at that...

Opposition Builds Faith

Opposition Builds Faith

We were driving across town this morning to run an errand. I mentioned to my husband that I needed to write an article today—and yet again, I had no idea what to write about. I told him that it’s awfully hard to write articles about “Strengthening Our Faith” in times...

The Second Mile

The Second Mile

Suffice it to say, my life has changed dramatically since the last time I wrote an article. In the last few weeks, I moved out of home, I started school, I started 2 new jobs, and, oh yeah, I got engaged! Can’t forget that last thing! Ha!   In some ways, I look...

How To Help An Autistic Child In The Classroom Part 2

This is a continuation of the article How To Help An Autistic Child In The Classroom, Part 1. And I will continue as if you had read that article as they are both imperative for every teacher to know.   For anyone reading this and not familiar with autism, high...

Same Beginning and Ending, but a Different Journey

Same Beginning and Ending, but a Different Journey

It's Friday—my first Aloha Friday as a former Hawaii resident. I woke up a little chilly in my room in the basement of my parents' house. At 8:00 am, I finally wondered what the temperature was. It was a solid 59 degrees (basically totally freezing to me). Before...
