Finding Joy in General Conference

Spring is upon us, which for everyone else means flowers blooming and gardening! For me, it means snow. As I sit here and write it is pouring down snow and has been for the past 2 hours. Whether it be raining or snowing or gardening or shoveling, spring also means one...

What I Learned Studying Sweat

In searching for insight into the Savior’s suffering in Gethsemane, I did a word search on lds.org for sweat. The results actually were enlightening! The word “sweat” is used in only three scriptural scenarios with a total of five references. Sweat of thy Face Three...

If I Let Him

With the event of Easter, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released another Easter message as it did last year. This season’s airing is entitled #hallelujah Find New Life. Missionaries had access to the video on the missionary portal prior to its...

Teaching above my Knowledge Level

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com I had only been a member of the Church for a few months when I decided to graduate high school over a year early, under a special new program that had just begun in my state. Since I hadn’t been in Young...

Becoming Mulekites

We don’t hear a lot about the Mulekites, mainly because their name is primarily used by the prophets as a cautionary tale to warn people what happens when people don’t have scriptures in their lives. Let’s look at what happens to people who are without scriptures in...

Family Movie Night: Batman vs Superman

Hi guys!  Hopefully some of you have had the chance to see the new Batman v Superman film. I saw it and you can see my spoiler free review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiKBzj35MsI It however is not a family film and I would not recommend taking children to...

Kites, Christ, and Kindness

March is considered a windy month, as it's Spring in the northern hemisphere. Sometimes the winds are strong, and sometimes they aren't. Pleasant memories of kite flying with my father and then with my own children still bring joy to my heart but also a lesson learned...

Our Thoughts Influence our Behavior

This last week, I had two particularly humbling experiences. The first occurred as one of our local church leaders was released from service due to an upcoming move to another state. I was thrilled! This leader had often snubbed me when walking past me in the hallways...

Grace Revisited

About a year ago, I wrote an article entitled The Case of the Mysterious Gift: Sherlock Holmes on Grace. After doing some research and doing some writing, I felt that I had come to understand grace just a little bit more. Yet, it still remained somewhat of an...

David Ssejinja

Rubbing shoulders with great leaders in our day is a privilege I never expected. I met David Ssejinja through a mutual friend. David is the founder of the Ssejinja Children's Foundation. The noble activities I have seen it do and the excitement generated among my...

The Power in Unity

In the Church we hear about the need for us to become a Zion people. We need to become of one heart and one mind. But why? The Lord would not require that we become united unless there was a distinct advantage or power in that unity. The Command to be One As early as...

To Really Learn the Gospel, Teach Primary

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com I have discovered that people assume women my age–in my fifties–don’t want to serve in Primary anymore, so their names are seldom even offered up to God. As a result, when I move, I simply alert the...

Family Movie Night: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Today I am doing a bit of catch-up.  Over on my channel I am reviewing a Batman film this week and Superman next but I wanted to combine those for an article next week.  It will coincide with Batman v Superman opening in theaters, so I hope you will enjoy it. Anyway,...

Remembering Ancient Tabitha

Recently, our Relief Society teacher talked about women of faith in the scriptures.  She read verses about a woman (omitting her name) and the class guessed who it was. For one woman, the teacher read all of the verses and nobody answered.  When it was clear nobody...

What is Greatness?

I have always loved reading biographies—wonderful histories that share the traits and choices that make someone … well, SOMEONE. I’m fascinated by greatness in people. What, exactly, makes someone great? According to the dictionary, to be great is to be distinguished...

Finding YOU

Ok, so I am a Disney fanatic (even before kids) and I am so excited for the upcoming movie Finding Dory. Finding Nemo was and still is one of my favorite Disney/Pixar movies and they just released the newest trailer for Finding Dory. I am excited to see where Dory...

Achievement

What does my Down syndrome son know of achievement?  It’s a fair question since he doesn’t speak words that communicate his feelings and he turns away for the most part if anyone tries to shine a spotlight on him.  He hasn’t had many opportunities to have applause...

A Standard Bearer

Throughout history, symbols have been used on the battlefield to represent rallying points. In the Bronze age, field signs were used. During the iron age, war flags emerged in Asia. The first known standard used in ancient Rome is said to have been a handful of straw...

Remembering Floyd Johnson

As I have said before, when we are influenced for good by the exemplary men and women around us, it can make us want to be better people and share that euphoria with others. In light of that exhortation, I want to share a story as related to my children. These...
