Architect

My wife loves to go house hunting. Parade of Homes, she’s there. New homes being built in our neighborhood; she has been through all of them. DIY network probably includes some of her favorite shows, and with good reason. She has done a remarkable job both on our home...

Getting the Most out of General Conference

Listen to the Spirit when Taking Notes   When I take notes during the General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I don’t write down what the speaker says word for word. In the age of technology, that information is available to me...

Do You Love Yourself? -Part 1

Couple and marriage relationships are always a high priority in people’s lives. We all want to be loved.  We all want to love our significant other and we like to read about how we can improve that relationship.   We can read about it all over the internet.   I...

Special Needs Parenting– Finding My Footing

When I became a new mother, I was amazed at the instant sorority I joined. Motherhood. Every mother can relate to another by the simple fact that they are both mothers. They know what it is like to put the needs of their baby ahead of their own. They know the deep...

RESPECT

After taking my annual Ethics and Compliance training, and my bi-annual Workplace Harassment training, I always revert to two lines of thought.  1) Have I done anything recently to offend or anything that was less than totally ethical? 2) If we all followed our own...

Learning From The Valiant

Just yesterday I read a story that greatly moved me. It made me ask myself if I am valiant enough.  Imagine with me, if you will, that you are an aristocratic woman born about 150 years after the death of Christ. This would place your birth date at approximately 183...

The Hike

The summit of Mount Timpanogos is 11,749 feet, second highest peak in the Wasatch Mountain Front. I consider the hike from the Timpooneke Trail head to be one of the best hikes in Utah. Reaching the summit will require 4 1/2 hours. The summit is 7.5 miles one-way with...

We Believe . . .

We have a creed, or rather a statement of our beliefs called The Articles of Faith.   In 1836, Joseph Smith was asked by a newspaper editor, John Wentworth, for information about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Joseph proceeded to write about the...

Healing Holes

When I was a child a few kids in my neighborhood wanted to play baseball at a friends house. Kevin, who’s house we were at, was up to bat. We all knew how far Kevin could hit the ball. We backed up and spread ourselves out so we could try to catch his long ball....

“I Never Want to be a Leader Again”

When these things I have not May I recall this Heavenly love When clouds impede my view That raises me to joy unbound And gives me hope anew! ~Zoe Anne Weston   "Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye...

The Cure-All called “Work”

After the school bus pulled away this morning, I stood chatting with several of our neighbors. One of the neighbors owns a landscaping company. Another neighbor works for a large company that analyzes information. Even though the people working for these companies...

This Isn’t Work

When I was Primary President (leader of Sunday instruction and weekday activities for the toddlers through pre-teens), my Bishop once said to me, “Molly, this isn’t work, you can’t just fire people whenever you want to!”  Well, my initial theory about my assignment...

Resentment in Doing Service for Others

Walking through the Phoenix airport a few weeks ago just put a smile on my face.  I was there picking up my son from a week’s vacation back in Alabama and noticed large groups of people gathered in different areas with large “Welcome Home” signs and balloons.   I...

Peace

Occasionally, a bird will fly into our front window. We love birds, so it is always a sad experience when this happens. I don’t wash that window very often to cut down on bird injuries. (That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.) Sometimes the birds aren’t hurt and fly...

Temple Marriage and its Purpose

Marriage is a time honored tradition that dates back to Adam and Eve. “Eternal marriage is a principle which was established before the foundation of the world and was instituted on this earth before death came into it. Adam and Eve were given to each other by God in...

The Lord’s Precedence of What to Do In Days of Trouble

Turmoil and trouble reach critical boiling points and violence occurs daily throughout the world. It’s an “eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth” mentality…get them before they get me.  People are sleeping on their swords and possessions but losing them anyway in their...

Trust in the Lord

I love going to the beach. One of my earliest memories is of my father holding both of my hands as I toddled into the waves for the first time. Even now, the salty taste of the ocean reminds me of this memory when fear mixed with excitement as I experienced the power...
