Are We in Control of Our Health?

So, in my last article I focused on the low fat/fat free myth and how you should eat natural, not man made fats if you want to improve your overall health. I also covered food coloring and the idea of going back to a simpler way of eating without so many prepackaged...

The Interview

It was a particularly difficult time in my life. I had recently lost my job and was fully engaged in a career search. To be perfectly honest, recently is probably a misnomer. As I remember, the interview took place up in Woods Cross, which was a fair distance from my...

Discipleship—Now Is the Time

At the conclusion of April 2017 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I did what I always do at the end of General Conference—I sat down to think about the general theme that seemed to run through the whole conference.  It was clear to...

Homeschooling Adventure Begins

My adventure in Autism took an unexpected sharp turn recently.  It became clear that my son needed to be home schooled.  That's a huge change!  Every home school mom deserves a medal — not including me because I am not doing it right yet.  But I'm trying.   You...

Are You Enjoying Your Own Spring Yet?

The air is fresh, the sun is out, there’s a light breeze that’s just the right temperature.  Greens are greener. Pinks, yellows, and reds are brighter.  It must be spring again – a time when so many things take the chance to start over.  When I saw the following...

A New Normal

When does the pain stop when your missionary leaves home?   I think everyone has a different response to their missionary leaving home. Some parents are so thankful that their child is able to serve a mission that there are only tears of grateful joy at parting....

Helping Others Get What They Want

It's 2:37am.   I did something I rarely do. I woke up when our dog woke up Anthony to go outside. (In this household, I'm the “parent” that typically sleeps through everything.) Then I couldn't go back to sleep because I started thinking about the book I was...

My Mormon Experience at the Philadelphia Baha’i Center

So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth. ~Bahᾱ’u’llᾱh   A warm, welcome awaited the Philadelphia Interfaith Visionary Women’s Council in the beautiful Baha’i Center. The meeting of our differing faiths would have pleased the...

The Miracle

I wouldn’t really call myself a handyman. Sure, I change the furnace filter and fix the occasional plumbing problems around the house, but my know-how and expertise is somewhat limited in this area. Yet, on occasion there comes along a job that has to be done. Such...

Some Marriage Poems

Marriage It is more than a dance, this thing between us. We are learning and growing simultaneously But never exactly in sync. Our passion is subtle because it is deep. From romantic longings, our shared movement has Risen from frost and ash. Our goal of enduring love...

The Joy and Wonder of Easter

Each Easter as I study about and ponder that first Easter morning and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, I’m filled with joy and wonder. The knowledge of resurrection is both comforting and empowering. I take comfort in knowing that we will all be resurrected and made whole. There will be no pain, nor suffering. Our imperfect bodies will be perfected.

My Mormon Experience at a Jewish Passover Seder

“It is helpful to have new people at a Seder. It reminds us to explain things and to be more thoughtful in what we are doing.” ~Natalie Katz, my hostess for Passover Seder   As a Mormon, I honor those of the Jewish faith. I admire their history and the tenements...

Man Up

This has been amazing. I trod a path this week that I have anticipated yet dreaded my whole life. More on that later. One thing I have learned through the process—the importance of good examples.   We all have them. Stalwart, brave, and courageous men who provide...

Church Reactivation and Social Media

My generation was all about privacy. With the advent of social media, things have drastically changed. Many people, particularly those who have grown up with social media, are putting their lives totally on public display.   This brings transparency to...

It’s Inside Me

I loved Disney's recent film, Moana. I liked it for many reasons, some of which include a fairly accurate depiction of Polynesian culture, great music, a strong female character, no evil patriarchy, no romantic love story (it wasn't noticed that it was missing, nor...

Eggsellent Easter Missionary Package

Every year, our family has a traditional Easter egg hunt with a twist. The plastic eggs when opened each contain a small token reminding us of some aspect of Jesus Christ’s agony in Gethsemane, His death on the cross, and His miraculous overcoming of death.  ...
