A Yardsale Fundraiser

Typically when my oldest daughter, Michelle, comes to me with the words, “Mom, I have an idea…” I cringe. Half the time I don’t realize I’m doing it, but you have to understand something. These ‘ideas’ range from putting together her newest recipe (”You take some...

Mitt Romney on the Cover of Newsweek

The Book of Mormon

Since Joseph Smith, Jr. translated and published the Book of Mormon in 1830, a great hue and cry arose across the world and it has not lessened. As a second testament of Jesus Christ it is a record of God's dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. It...

Heaven or Hell?

Latter-day Saints don't believe in a straight heaven or hell. That would be pretty scary if you were borderline. What would tip you over the edge that would precipitate one being kicked out of heaven and straight down to the fiery depths of hell? That's a frightening...

President Henry B. Eyring: Called of God

When the name of Henry B. Eyring was read in the October 2007 general conference as the new counselor in the First Presidency, I had to smile. While we love all of our general authorities, and would have sustained any of them in this new calling, I'm sure many members...

How is a new Apostle Chosen?

Nephi or Moses?

Several months ago I felt impressed to begin reading the Bible, cover to cover, starting at Genesis. I’ve read through most of the New Testament, have looked up various scriptures here and there in the Old Testament, and can even correctly recite the books of the...

How Can a Virtuous Woman Sustain and Support the Priesthood?

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh...

Airports: Love or Hate?

Airports are some of my favorite places to be. Not for traveling. Not at all. Now with all the awful security considerations, traveling has lost its zest for me. But I do love airports. Why? Because there is no place on earth it would seem with as many hugs, tears and...

Joseph Smith, Jr. – The First Vision

Joseph Smith, Jr. was born into a newly formed country, stumbling to its feet after winning its independence against Britain. Religious fervor was sweeping the nation and preachers from all factions of Christianity were calling the people to repentance. Like his...

The Family Cemetery- A Whole New Pressure to Get Married

I Need a Yenta

For several years now I have patiently waited for someone to give me the magic formula for how to catch the perfect man. Many friends, strangers and shoe store clerks have offered their two cents on where to find the perfect man, and what I should be wearing when that...

Jesus Christ, Savior and Redeemer

Jesus Christ. That name evokes such emotion, power, strength and unmatched love. He is known by so many names: Immanuel, Shiloh, Son of God, Son of Man, Prince of Peace, Wonderful, Counselor . . . they go on and on, every one testifying of the divinity of our Lord and...

In the Beginning
