What Do You Really Know About Hell?

Trials and Blessings–Be Grateful in All

To Your Health

The Magic Mommy Kiss

With so many children I need to be creative in how I use my resources. I’ve decided to start recycling parenting techniques to apply to teens, and I’m thinking one particular technique would be fabulously applied to everyone. The magic mommy kiss. I LOVE the magic...

Lessons From a Samaritan

GOAL: To focus on living the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) for one year. These weekly check-ins are forcing me to sit down at my laptop and ponder the lessons learned from trying to live more as the Good Samaritan. No more putting off writing in my...

Truth

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. — Arthur Schopenhauer The last two years, I have done a lot of writing. The process of writing for me starts with a lot of...

Faith and Agency

I am not sure I have much to add to the current debate raging through the lines of communication of the cyber-world right now regarding the recent amendment to Church guidelines that was recently released. In this new amendment, children in practicing LGBT households...

Effects of Parent and Children Choices

As I walk, I step on scattered palm seeds. The palm trees tower above me. The seeds are tiny in comparison. Crunch. Crunch. Crunch. Seeds are the promise of a future generation. I’ve thought a lot over the past few days about generations, of parents and children. How...

My 593 Turkeys

We arrived in Israel in late summer 1983 with five ingenuous kids in tow. Actually, not one of us knew what we were getting into. Culture shock set in quickly and lasted a long time. Although there was a kindly community of savvy Mormons there to help out (just as...

Focusing On The One

Welcome back, dear reader. I feel like I have been gone so long that I hardly even know where to begin. But in my absence, it is true what they say, my heart has grown fonder, and I have come to truly appreciate our opportunities to sit down and get to know one...

Family Movie Night- Woodlawn

This article was previously published on 54disneyreviews.com Reviewing the new Christian film Woodlawn is tough.  I was thoroughly entertained by it but it definitely has problems.  It is also a marked improvement over many other Christian films such as the recent hit...

Think of Death as a Door

Probably the single most frightening thing in the whole world is death. Every generation since the days of Adam and Eve have had their entire lives to contemplate what would happen to them the moment they stopped breathing. Death does not need to be frightening. With...

The Price of My Birthright

This article was previously posted on Latterdaysaintwoman.com Recently, while unloading my grocery cart, I noticed a small package that had fallen through a space in the child seat. Since all my groceries had been in that seat, I hadn’t seen it, and so I hadn’t paid...

The Holy Ghost: Messages from God

Messages from God.  Wouldn’t it be great if we got these every day?  We can through the promptings of the Holy Ghost.  Our own personal revelation is important in major decisions but the small stuff needs confirmation too. I don’t think I get significant messages...

‘You Don’t Know Enough’

Anyone who has ever lived with a teenager in the house will commiserate with my husband and I, as we constantly remind our 17-year-old son that he doesn’t yet know what he doesn’t know-he doesn't know enough yet- and to trust our counsel a bit more. This week, my...

Be A Friend Instead of a Busybody

Never worry about what I'm doing. Only worry about why you're worried about what I'm doing. — Unknown Have you had experience with busybodies? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you probably have, because they seem to be everywhere. They were always plentiful,...

Seeing Time

How did He do it? How did the Savior get everything done? Technically, His ministry was only three years long, yet John affirmed that “there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world...

Wanting More- Understanding And Using What Motivates You

Energy, unbidden, floods my mind and body with enthusiastic power.  I’m fully engaged.  Action flows freely, almost without effort.  In fact, it would be nearly impossible to hold it back.  I must act, like a wave that must run its course.  Unless it doesn’t. I live...

My daughter had been asked to give a talk in Primary last Sunday.  I was pretty excited for her, though this is not her first talk.  The theme was “Come unto Christ.”  I wrote a blog in the recent past titled, “Come Unto Him.”  When I first started to write her talk,...
