Be the Difference

We have been so blessed this school year because my son has an exceptional teacher.  He is in first grade, and has hated school since Preschool.  In the USA, preschool is optional, and in Utah (where I live) Kindergarten is optional also.  But he went.  This year as...

Play and Wait

My 3 year old is considering potty training. That would have a wonderful impact on my life. She’s not totally ready. I can reward and chart and beg and do heaps and heaps of laundry. OR I can offer and wait. Keep open to it and be willing. Imagine if we decided at age...

Keeping Personal Commitments

There is, most likely, someone in your life you are not being completely honest with.  I say that because I was unaware that I lived a double life.  I love honesty, but I was not always honest with myself.  I kept commitments to others, but when it came time to put my...

Surprises and Sunshine

Last week was my birthday—yeah! I’m now 41 years old!!! I used to complain about getting older, until a good friend bluntly (I prefer my friends to be the blunt kind!) told me, “Why are you complaining, it’s better than the alternative!” She’s right, so I enjoyed...

Relationships of Siblings in the Scriptures

So after last week’s post about how the Lord really gave Laman an opportunity to step up as a leader, I’m now obsessed about looking at the older siblings in the scriptures. ☺ Cain and Abel. After the scripture mentions his birth, Cain’s story picks up with him...

Angels Among Us

Hello Friends!!! Me again! Happy New Year! Oh how I have missed you!! I‘m sorry it has been so long! I took a brief hiatus to take care of my two kids and take care of myself, but I am hoping to be back to writing more regularly. A quick update, Baby girl is doing...

He Tries Us Because He Loves Us

We generally focus on the positive aspect of growth in the kingdom, the gaining of a testimony or the learning of new talents and abilities. These things are necessary and wonderful, but they are also the back end of a process that often starts with having to tear...

Family Movie Night: Annie

When you become a movie fan you start to notice certain things can sink or save a movie.  Sometimes it’s a great performance.  Other times it’s a beautiful setting.  Sometimes it’s great dialogue.  In the case of 1982’s Annie it all comes down to the music. Without...

Euphoria and a Loss for Words

Since its 2003 debut, Wicked has broken box office expectations around the world, currently holding weekly-gross-takings records in Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, and London. In the week ending January 2, 2011, the London, Broadway, and both North American touring...

212֯—Give the Extra Degree

We’ve all seen the motivational posters posted around schools or our doctor’s offices: At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And with steam, you can power a train. One extra degree makes all the difference. This...

Stepping Up to His Righteous Leadership Role, or Not

In Gospel Doctrine class while talking about Laman and his murmuring, I really noticed that before he angrily criticized Nephi’s leadership role, the Lord had given Laman the same opportunity to step up and be the leader. Laman’s dissonance began after being...

Family Movie Night: Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue

This week we enter Pixie Hollow once again and talk about the 3rd and one of the best in the Tinkerbell films- Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue.  Because it is straight to DVD, I feel the Tinkerbell franchise does not get the credit it deserves. They consistently...

The Finer Points of Gossiping

Ask anyone what it means to gossip and they can give you an answer. What I am shooting for today is an understanding of gossiping that goes beyond the definition of repeating “dirt” about someone out of turn. To help me in this quest I have enlisted the help of...

Old Ladies In The Nursery

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com In most wards, the nursery seems to be filled with the mothers of toddlers, the very women I feel don’t belong there. They are with toddlers all day every day. On Sundays, they deserve a break. To my...

Cleaning Out and Helping Out!

I absolutely love Pinterest! I was a Pinterest-er even as a child—cutting out magazine pictures and pasting them into various notebooks when I was really small, before graduating to file folders when I became a young adult—stuffed full of ideas that I was sure I would...

Early Intervention Increases Quality of Life

When you give birth to a handicapped child people start coming out of the woodwork from government agencies, the county health department, experts of various kinds . . . I think the hospital has some responsibility to let them know about the birth.  When my Down...

My Sweetheart

The love of my life was born in Washington DC, though she was reared in Ventura, California. Not raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she and her family regularly attended another denomination. However as an adolescent, she came to...
