The Holy Ghost Can’t do it Alone

As members of the Lord’s church, sometimes we act as though we feel like just showing up to meetings on Sunday is fulfilling our obligations to God. When people start to talk about our need to participate in missionary work or temple work (same thing, just on...

Family Movie Night- Captain America: Civil War

By the time you read this post most of you will have probably seen "Captain America: Civil War" and I hope you enjoyed it. I certainly did. You can see my review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XS-SLDSRS1I So instead of repeating what I and other critics have...

I’ve Changed

There are moments when you realize you've become a different person.  I had a couple of them today.  We are away from home on a company-sponsored retreat.  It was harder than usual this year to come.  My seven year old son was heartbroken the night before we left,...

Be Still and Know That I am God

I wish I was one of those people who seem to take life calmly, accepting with a minimum of stress the curve balls that life throws at them. But I am not a patient person by nature, and it seems the more that I try to restrain myself, bottling up my emotions so that I...

Stop and Listen: The power of Prayer and Revelation

I have been struggling with yelling lately. It seems that certain times of the month I am worse than others and its during those times I find it extremely difficult to control myself. I have poured over articles on-line about how to “Stop yelling”, and have been quite...

Why Primary is More Fun than Relief Society

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com A few years ago, I sent the following email to the parents of my Primary students: Hi Parents, I was so nervous about getting a new calling (I’m not being released from old ones) that I forgot my Primary...

Freedom

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Agency is one of the greatest gifts we could ever be given: freedom to choose our own path, freedom to become anything we hope...

Grow

We are eternal creatures. We have always existed, and we always will. Living with our heavenly parents, who are the ultimate in the definition of steadfast and accountable, I imagine there was a lot we could count on staying the same in our home before mortality. My...

Family Movie Night: Iron Man

Because it is constantly evolving in front of us I don’t know if most moviegoers appreciate what Marvel has done with their movies in the last 8 years. I mean how often is the very concept of cinema reinvented?  That’s essentially what Marvel did with their cinematic...

Don’t Judge so Fast

A few summers back, a tattooed, young woman with multiple face piercings stood in line at a fabric store, waiting to get her fabric cut. As she waited, a mother with a young child cut in line in front of her, arms full of red, white, and blue fabric. While giving the...

Identity

What is my identity?  What is yours? Genetically, I look like my parents and their ancestors. I act like them. I can flare my nostrils like my siblings and my dad. We all find ourselves hysterically funny. I subscribe to the tribe and feel I belong with them....

Integrity

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say...

The Pattern of the First Vision

The account of Joseph Smith’s First Vision, found in the Joseph Smith History included at the back of any Triple Combination worth it’s salt has a wealth of information for the avid scriptorian. We can discover so much about the boy prophet, our relationship with God...

Principles of Prayer

Richard G. Scott gave a wonderful talk about the principles of prayer in General Conference. I’m not quite sure how I missed it or what I was doing at the time, but almost three decades later I stumbled across his talk and it now speaks to me. Hopefully my efforts...

Family Movie Night: The Princess Bride

The funny thing about The Princess Bride is I feel like I have seen it a lot recently but when I actually sat down to watch it for this review I realized it had been many years. It’s just such a popular film and so often quoted that it kind of has a life of its own. I...

Time Passes

There's a song titled "Time" by Chantal Kreviazuk that is one of my favorites. It's so well written and really speaks about the importance of time. I love the message and I suggest you all to give it a listen when you can. That's what I wanted to talk about; Time....

Mother’s Day Challenge: A Positive Self-Esteem

Motherhood is best done with a spouse but if that has not been an option then we do the best we can as a single mother. Single mothers face more challenges than sometimes we can bear but one that is particularly difficult is keeping a positive self-esteem. Many times...

Going to Disneyland

This past week our family had the amazing opportunity to go to Disneyland!! Baby Girl will be 5 years old in June and for us, turning 5 is a big thing to celebrate, so we celebrated in a special way. We decided going now would be a lot better than fighting the crowds...

In Tune with the Spirit

Though my melodic inclinations are limited, I live among many who are gifted musicians and adeptly familiar with song and musical scores and the importance of being in tune. Harmony brings great joy and peace into our home and calms difficult storms that inevitably...
