Don’t Ignore the Miracles

The sun came softly through my bedroom window as I tried to focus on the alarm clock to see the time. Deciding I had a few minutes before I needed to move, I looked out the window and watched a squirrel run back and forth from the fence to the tree. A second squirrel...

3 Apocryphal Nativity Stories

My Mug of Enlightenment

Have you ever had thoughts about something you have pondered for years and years and had done nothing about it?  “One day,” we say to ourselves, “One day we will accomplish that thought.” When will it be that day?   For me that day had arrived.  I write...

My Wrestle With the Most Horrible Story in the Bible

Spice Up Your Holidays

When it comes to seasoning our food there are many herbs and spices to choose from, but first it is important to understand the difference between them.   Herbs are the fresh and/or dried leaves of plants and are usually green in color. Spices are the flowers,...

More Records Equals Better Genealogy

I remember, as a novice family history research, the thrill of finding a record that told me more about my family and immediately adding the information to my family history.  Back then, my family tree was on paper and only available to those with whom I personally...

Monumental Decision

So my daughter came to me and asked “Do you have any personal stories about praying and not getting the answer immediately, but it actually ended up being better?” She was planning to teach something in seminary in that regard. We went to grandfather’s personal...

Rest, relax, enjoy the Christmas season. Seem possible? Of course it is! Christmas is a celebration of the Savior’s birth. Any stress involved with Christmas is of our own making. I love Christmas, but I had to learn as a child that expectations need to be realistic....

Caves of Providence or Peril

Are You Hiding?

I see Nephi carefully approaching Jerusalem's city gate, cautiously entering and looking around to gauge his surroundings before walking the dark streets towards Laban's house.   The angel had just commanded him and his brothers to return again to get the plates,...

When We Have To Wait

God answers prayers.  And we pray in faith, knowing He hears us.  But what happens when the blessings don't seem to come?   I have a younger sister who greatly desires her own Prince Charming.  She has met and dated many potentials, but none of them panned out....
