Missionary Leadership Skills

Let’s have an honest discussion of what makes a good leader. All of us have experienced poor leadership and all of us have experienced good leadership. Being someone who has been both the follower and the leader, I’d like to offer some insights into what makes a good...

Guess What? Obedience Doesn’t Come First

I discovered something, recently, and I feel somewhat ridiculous that it took me this long to discover this truth. In fact, I would say it's taken me about 25 years to learn this, with the most concentrated schooling in the past decade.   Love comes first.  ...

Summing Up Marriage

Tudie Rose sums up a year’s worth of marriage advice–and invites you to apply to write the column as she moves on to a new topic.

Armed With Righteousness

I have really never had a hobby per se.   When I was a boy, my brothers and I at times played war. It was innocuous and all in good fun.   Like other youngsters, I suppose, we would simulate battles with harmless sticks and use metal trash can lids as...

Discipleship with Precision

When I was a little girl, I used to admire hand blown glass figurines in a department store display case. The intricate designs of glass merry-go-rounds, animals, fish, butterflies, and flowers fascinated me. As I grew a bit older and learned how they were made, my...

The Wedding Dress…

Several years ago, on 1 November 2003, one of my best friends from college married my oldest brother in the Salt Lake Temple. This was such a happy event for me, for temple marriage and families are central to our Father's Plan for us.   "The divine plan of...

Your First Sunday Back From Inactivity

Returning to church after a period of inactivity can be scary. You’re not sure how others will receive you and you’re not sure how you’ll feel. You may still have unresolved issues that bombard your emotions as you walk back through that door.   Your first day...

I Was A Stranger

I Am a Stranger   Who is a stranger? What constitutes a stranger? My husband was once a stranger. My now dearest friends were once strangers to me.   Our missionary mailed his first missionary journal home to us this last week. As I eagerly read through his...

How to Sustain Motivation

I love starting new goals and projects.  I also can’t stop myself from finishing them when I smell the completion just out of reach.  But that long marathon of a middle drains my energy.  The tedious, repetitive action part tanks my motivation.     I’ve learned...

Pondering on Choices and Repentance

This article was previously published on Happy Meets Crazy.   Before you start reading, please promise me you'll read all the way to the end and especially read the end! The end is the most important part. In fact, if you'd rather just skip everything and go...

Gospel Math

In gospel math A+B doesn't always equal C. Do you believe that? If you have been a member of the Church for any length of time or served a mission, you know what I mean. The blessings of the gospel are apparent everywhere you look. Do you see it?   Let me give...

My Mormon Experience at a Sikh Service

Speak truth, work hard, live an honest life, and share earnings with those in need.- From the Sikh Rehat Maryada, the Sikh code of conduct   Walking into the Baisakhi Philadelphia Sikh Society, I am immediately impressed with the stunning beauty of the women....

10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before I got Married

You're blissfully happy, having found that special one you want to marry.  He proposes and you say yes. You start planning the wedding.  And the stress begins, and pretty soon you're wondering if all this headache is worth it.  Sound familiar?     It's seriously...

Throwing Stones and Shooting Arrows at the Wall

Those silly, and obviously wicked, Nephites throwing stones and shooting arrows at Samuel the Lamanite on the city wall.  Why were they so blind and hard hearted?  They knew truth. They'd made covenants recently after the life changing famine. How could they have lost...

My life as a Jedi

The latest trailer in Star War trilogy was released last Friday (March 14, 2017) which has stirred up fans for the coming story line in the next movie released December 15th. “What’s going to happen next?” is the question on everyone’s mind.   I have been a fan...

Pearls Before Nice People (or Learning Humility)

Jesus once said:   Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Matthew 7:6)   Many years ago (10? 11?), I was visiting a ward out of state. During...

Are We in Control of Our Health?

So, in my last article I focused on the low fat/fat free myth and how you should eat natural, not man made fats if you want to improve your overall health. I also covered food coloring and the idea of going back to a simpler way of eating without so many prepackaged...

The Interview

It was a particularly difficult time in my life. I had recently lost my job and was fully engaged in a career search. To be perfectly honest, recently is probably a misnomer. As I remember, the interview took place up in Woods Cross, which was a fair distance from my...

Discipleship—Now Is the Time

At the conclusion of April 2017 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I did what I always do at the end of General Conference—I sat down to think about the general theme that seemed to run through the whole conference.  It was clear to...

Homeschooling Adventure Begins

My adventure in Autism took an unexpected sharp turn recently.  It became clear that my son needed to be home schooled.  That's a huge change!  Every home school mom deserves a medal — not including me because I am not doing it right yet.  But I'm trying.   You...
