Graceful Receiving

Graceful Receiving

There he stood, scrubbing so diligently, making sure not to miss a single spot. Farther and farther along the floor he went until any possible mess was gone. The floor was sparkling clean, and my boyfriend had the biggest smile on his face. He was so happy to have...

The Little Robin’s Lesson

The Little Robin’s Lesson

We are commanded by Heavenly Father to be charitable. Charity should be a way of life. The scriptures contain many teaching on why and how we can practice charity. One of the most helpful to me is found in the Book of Mormon in Moroni 7:   46 Wherefore, my...

Challenges as Preparation

Challenges as Preparation

Phew! What a time to be living in!   The protests happening these last few weeks have been pretty intense — more intense than many of us expected, I would say. They’ve eclipsed the state of the pandemic for a moment! That just shows that one issue inevitably...

The Brotherhood of Man 

The Brotherhood of Man 

With the recent chaos of events throughout the world, I think there are many people looking for hope, solace, and a return to normal. Fear is strong and prevalent.   Yet this is an article I have written a million times. OK, maybe that is a slight exaggeration,...

Handblown Glass and Testimony

Handblown Glass and Testimony

Since I was a little girl, I’ve been fascinated by handblown glass and glassblowers. Glassblowers are fascinating artists. This week I’ve been watching a show where glassblowers compete for scholarship money. They are given a specific assignment with a time limit to...

Live Together In Love And Peace

Live Together In Love And Peace

This last week has brought so much new awareness that it feels like it has been many weeks instead of just one. My whole life I have tried to see the insides of people when finding and choosing friends. So, I have friends of every orientation, nationality, color, and...

We Can Walk the Path Where Jesus Walked

We Can Walk the Path Where Jesus Walked

When I was 14, I listened to someone who experienced Brigham Young University's Jerusalem Study Abroad Program. I sat spellbound as she mentioned places she saw and described the paths, smells, and culture that infused such life into her story. I couldn't get...

The Importance of Eternal Covenants

The Importance of Eternal Covenants

As I was writing in my journal recently after Collette clocked into work (she works from home on the phone/computer), I overheard a second or two of some very muffled comments about the concept, "Oh, yeah, my last name is Pulsipher now!" I could hear the smile on her...

Combatting Negativity

Combatting Negativity

Fires, racism, and violence across the nation are pulling at our attention. Coming directly off a pandemic, people are not in a very strong place emotionally and feel as though they cannot handle all that is being thrown at them. It is easy to get caught up in the...

Feel Like a Million Bucks

Feel Like a Million Bucks

I have a lot of friends I want to write about. They impacted my life for good when I needed it most. Many have migrated to their homes in different states of locations over the years, and though they are not forgotten, our connections are limited and communication is...

Meaningful or Mundane?

Meaningful or Mundane?

A Siberian husky was not at the top of my list of desired pets. If we were going to get a pet, I would have preferred a cat that slept on the couch twenty hours a day. But instead of a sedate feline, life brought me a puppy with more energy than an over-caffeinated...

Where Can I Turn For Peace?

Where Can I Turn For Peace?

Where can I turn for peace? Where is my solace When other sources cease to make me whole? When with a wounded heart, anger, or malice, I draw myself apart, Searching my soul?   The questions of the soul posed in Emma Lou Thayne’s stirring hymn "Where Can I Turn...

The Gift You Are to Me

The Gift You Are to Me

Some years ago, I was scanning through the internet (which can sometimes be a mind-numbing thing to do). You know how one link can lead to another and another... and another? The next thing you know, you’ve uncovered a gem, read it, and with a single click, it wanders...

The Parable of the Parachute: Choosing to Be Uplifted 

The Parable of the Parachute: Choosing to Be Uplifted 

When I met my husband in 1996, he was serving in the US Army as an Airborne Ranger in the 2nd battalion in Ft. Lewis, Washington. We like to say that Bryan had three lives while in the Army, not the customary nine. Nearly losing these lives guided him in his decision...

We Are Not Alone in Our Battles

We Are Not Alone in Our Battles

We are engaged in a fierce battle. Does that surprise you? It’s true. No, I am not talking about national security or the COVID-19 virus. Even with all the uproar in the homeland, it is much more serious than that. This clash is not just a life or death situation....

Remembering the Goodness of God

Remembering the Goodness of God

While studying the recent general conference talks, I was struck by something Elder Dale G. Renlund said about remembering the gifts of God. I love studying the talks after the fact, because I often learn things that I missed while listening to them live. Elder...
