The Many Faces of Prayer

How complicated are the relationships you have with loved ones in your life? You have friends in varying circles and family members of differing degrees of closeness. You may temper your conversations with them according to their age, maturity, or social and religious...

Liken The Scriptures

Jack was the youngest of twelve brothers. As the youngest and most favored of their parents his older brothers hated him. His parents doted on him, giving him expensive clothes and electronic games which really caused a rift between brothers.  While on a family...

Conquer Your Fear

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. — Nelson Mandela I don’t deal well with life changes. I find them stressful on several levels. I have learned...

A Prophet’s Voice

This last weekend, our family snuggled in pajamas and blankets as we curled up to watch General Conference, to hear the words of the living prophets—it is one of our favorite family traditions EVER! We clear the weekend of plans and we watch every session together. As...

How to Weather A Crisis

The threat becomes clear in a moment, perhaps by a phone call, a letter, or a realization.  Ours came in the form of a letter.  Our homeowners insurance was dropping us.  No big deal, right?  But our home was underwater (meaning we owed way more than we could sell it...

Life is an Extraordinary Gift

I watched a program recently. It reflected on the sacrifices of the early saints and handcart pioneers who suffered so much that we could have the blessings today of the gospel in its fullness.  It’s called 17 Miracles, and I highly recommend it. Perhaps it was...

The Benefits Of Music In The Home

I was having one of those days.  You know, the kind where the kids are running in circles around you, and the noise level is so out of control that you can't even hear yourself shouting?  Yes, it was not a good day.  I was about to yell and ground and punish every...

My Secret’s Out: I Was A Victim Of Abuse

I was born into a strong LDS family. Both of my parents had pioneer ancestors. My father and mother respected one another, worked together, supported one another and raised our family in the gospel. My dad would open doors for my mother, his daughters and all women...

Our Story of Conversion

I have always felt a little uncomfortable reading about the Apostle Peter. I think it is because there are parts of his life that remind me of myself. As we look at the account of Peter’s life we should look at the pattern he set for us. In a way, Peter’s life is a...

Family Movie Night: Robin Hood

It’s Monday so that means it’s time for Family Movie Night! In truth I would pick a Disney animated film every week for Family Movie Night as that is my first love.  The problem is on Netflix the selection is somewhat sparse and that is the basis for this series.  And...

Why Do We Do What We Do When We Know What We Did?

We've all had those moments where it feels like our words are hitting a wall and bouncing right back to us. People will ask us for help and our opinion. We offer to the best of our knowledge an answer and solution and then those people go and do exactly the opposite...

Power To Make A Difference

Sometimes I can’t even listen to the news. The state of the world is so horrible, and it is getting worse. I cry over the turmoil in the Middle East and Europe, I ache over the disregard for life at its earliest stages, I suffer over the confusing signals our children...

Worst Day…

It was a rough night’s sleep with a recovering, but still coughing baby. A little after five this morning I was woken by my 17yo daughter who was getting up to go to seminary. She woke us with the words “There is a mouse or something swimming in the pot in the sink.”...

Top 10 Reasons to Watch General Conference This Weekend

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are given words of wisdom every six months from our leaders in Salt Lake City. It’s that time again in October and today starts the first session. There are many wonderful reasons to watch General...

Learning From The Pope

I live in the suburbs around Philadelphia, or "Philly", as we locals refer to our beloved city. This means that I have strongly held opinions about where to get the absolutely best Philly Cheesesteak—Pudge’s, is our family’s favorite! Living near Philly also means...

Striving for Perfection

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. — Antoine de Saint Exupery The quote above is something that I personally need to remember. Of the many things I need to “take away,” the biggest thing I need...

Unfair Comparisons

Feel like quitting?  If you feel like the treadmill of life is just too fast and you’ll never get ahead, I want you to know that I understand.  It is so hard to feel like doing better when just keeping up seems impossible or hard enough.  Most of my articles are about...

3 Ways Covenant Women Enrich My Life

In his letter to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul taught Saints of Ephesus that through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, they could be saved.  Before their conversion, Paul said, “That at that time ye were without Christ, being…strangers from the covenants of...

My Opus

  I recently watched Mr. Holland's Opus again, a 1995 classic staged in the era of 60s starring Richard Dreyfuss. You may or may not like this flick. I was surprised how partial I was to it—I really enjoyed the movie, and the memories. I don’t recall appreciating...

Personal Reflections

I realize that I am supposed to be writing a relationship blog, and somehow my writing has morphed into more of a free-for-all, but sometimes there are so many thoughts and opinions swirling around in my head, I just have to get them out. So again, another day,...
