Lost!

I Can’t Find My Baby!   You know that feeling when you can’t find your young child?  Did you flinch and begin to feel that sinking feeling as you read this title?  Everyone knows that first jolt of alarm when realizing that they’re unable to spot their little...

Rescued

I am an avid sports fan. Perhaps you are, too. Sporting events are fun to watch and I believe can be beneficial to all those involved. So I would like to pose a question for your consideration:   When is the game or contest won? Is it when one team doubles its...

There is Good in Everyone

My dad used to tell me that you can learn something from everyone you meet. You don’t have to like everyone you meet, but if you have respect for that person as a fellow traveler on this planet, I submit that Dad was right. He was right because there is good in...

One More Valentine

If you didn’t get a valentine this year, it doesn’t mean you are unloved. Your Heavenly Father and your Savior will always love you.

A Cat’s Tale

About six months ago, life was crazy hectic. I felt pulled in a thousand different directions and as though I was pretty much failing at everything. Then my youngest daughter came crying to me, “Mom, something is wrong with Belle.”   After scooching myself under...

Thirsting after Knowledge

Question: What is one thing we can take with us after we leave this earth? Answer: Knowledge. It is one of the few things on the list we can take with us to heaven. (ok, the other things are developed virtues and family/friend relationships).   As the Chinese...

All We Need is Love

Don’t forget that it isn’t just those you are romantically attached to who need to be loved.There is a whole whole world there waiting for loving kindness.

Still Snowing

We had a snow storm last week. It was the biggest we have seen this year—probably 8+ inches in the valley. My wife and I started up the snow blower and used it to make one pass down the driveway. Its swath was significant, because the fallen snow that had accumulated...

I Built My House Upon the Rock, Now What?

The wise man built his house upon the rock The wise man built his house upon the rock The wise man built his house upon the rock And the rains came tumbling down. The rains came down, and the floods came up The rains came down, and the floods came up The rains came...

Behind The Scenes

I sat in the darkened movie theater and tried to catch my breath.  The movie I had just seen was so gripping that I had been holding my breath for what seemed like hours!  My husband, sitting beside me, exclaimed "That was SO COOL!!"   I had just seen the most...

To Obey or Not To Obey?

“One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” ~Eleanor...

Surviving “Fails”

“Oh!” I hear my children yell.  “Augh!!” They holler.  I hear laughing with loud exclamations as I hurry to the family room to see what is going on.  They are watching “fails” on the internet and enjoying the death defying mistakes of others, some that make me hurt...

Getting the word out

Times have changed. Shifting   I remember when spreading your message meant an expensive advertising campaign or public relations strategy. Now blogs, Internet, Twitter, Facebook, texting, and other social media phenomena allow us to reach dozens, hundreds,...

Sleep….The Sequel

In my last article I talked about some of the reasons it is important to get a good night's sleep. We can understand this need a little bit better by going over some sleep basics.   When we sleep we usually go through stages of sleep known as stages 1,2,3,4, and...

Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy

The past couple of years, I’ve really be concentrating on trying to keep the Sabbath Day holy, as this is something I have struggled with for a long time. I’ve made some progress, but I’m not there yet. I don’t think I’m the only one who struggles with this, so I...

The Affects of Service

The last segment of this series on service will mostly be quotes from the Brethren that were too long to put in the previous sections. They are powerful lessons on how service affects our lives.   Service is the fluid art of touching another person’s life with...

Perspective

I just had a conversation which has shifted my perspective. My neighbor and I were sharing bus stop chatter about life. Her experience as a black woman living in a very vanilla suburb of Philadelphia compared with my own experience as a Mormon living in a very...

My First March

In watching the equality marches this week, I reflected on the causes I've passionately joined over the years. This is not a post for or against the current marching, just a few musings about a time I stood up against a grievance.   My First March for Equality...

The Grand Picture

If we could be lifted up out of our life to look down from above to see ourselves, what would we see? What would it be like if we had a good look at our life from birth to when we left this earth? What would we think of ourselves? What is the grand picture of our...
