One More Valentine

One More Valentine

In Kindergarten, Valentine’s Day was pure fun. We decorated cards with construction-paper hearts and doilies and wrote “I love you” in crayon across the top. I can almost smell the paste used to smear on the back of the hearts, the kind that would clump in so many...
A Love Story for Eternity

A Love Story for Eternity

Everyone loves a good love story—one that tugs at the heart strings and makes you hold your honey a little closer.

Families Can Be Together Forever

As we approach this last week before Christmas, the energy in the air is unmistakable—family is at the center of our minds. “Do I have the right present for my husband? Did I get my Christmas packages for my brother’s family to the post office on time? Will my children be happy with what they find under the tree? Are there more people I could have written Christmas cards to, thanking them for their service to me and my family?” If we could read the thoughts of our neighbors and friends, no doubt they’d have the common thread—have I done enough for my family this Christmas? Putting aside the stress this may cause, ponder the deeper meaning—the Christmas season is a transformative time for those who believe. It takes us out of our own self-centered world and opens our eyes to what matters most—family. And families are forever.
