Decisions and Hidden Treasures

I wasn’t ready. That’s all it really came down to. The family was ready to go, and I wasn’t, so I encouraged them to head on without me. It was my second chance to attend the Provo City Center Temple open house. I had gone already once before with my wife. But...

Sisters, Be Not Your Own Worst Enemy

I may not be a woman, but I have been around women my whole life. I know enough about you to know that if anyone can bring down a good woman, it will be first and foremost herself. Much of what makes life in your own heads so difficult comes from how you think. Men...

Family Movie Night: Penguins of Madascar

Back in 2014 I debated whether to see Penguins because I actually have not seen any of the previous Madagascar films. The first one came out when I was just home from my Mormon mission and wasn’t really in a movie-going mode yet. Then I didn’t hear great things and so I never bothered to see any of them.

Being Kind to the Unkind

Yesterday, as I drove a friend to and from getting minor surgery, Christine shared with me a struggle she’s been having at work. She has a co-worker who has constantly been mean to her—unkind remarks, purposefully knocking over her paperwork—just generally unpleasant....

Calculating Flight Plans for Lightspeed

Long, long ago when I was in high school Calculus I asked my teacher why I would ever need to know how to calculate the area of something he couldn’t even draw. I asked him what calculus is used for in real life. He didn’t have an answer for me. I dropped the class at...

Getting Released from Primary

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com Whether you’re relieved to be leaving Primary or grieving,  there are things to take into consideration when you are leaving your Primary students to a new teacher, especially if you are teaching very...

Sweet Niece, Wedding Cake, and an Eternal Lesson

If ever there was a female version of Cookie Monster, my 5 year old niece is it. She’s obsessed by sweets, much to the chagrin of her health conscious mother. Last Thursday night, I saw her overwhelming sweet obsession in action. And it taught me a lesson. Sweet Niece...

Self Control, and Reacting- Feeling

When do feelings matter? Benjamin Franklin said, “If you are mad, count to 10.  If you are really mad, count to 100.”  Taking action, reacting in any way, even speaking during an overwhelming feeling almost always leads to problems.  If all feelings do is delay or...

The Work and Glory of God

Frankly, I can say with delight that I adore Moses’ scriptural account in Moses chapter 1 verse 39, where we are told that God’s work and glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Read the verse again slowly and think about what he is saying....

The Pathway to Better Health

Our lives are made up of many varied paths, all of which have conspired to bring us to where we are now. If we have at times taken a wrong path, or followed the wrong advice, that is in the past. And while the past cannot be changed we can alter our course.  If we’re...

Shakespeare, Weight-lifting, and Transitions

In order for muscles to grow, you must first tear the muscle tissue. This sounds counterintuitive, doesn’t it. But it is true. It isn’t until one hour after you work-out, however, that your body begins to repair the damage you inflicted on it at the gym. This period...

Why We Are Free to Choose Eternal Life – Part 3 of 3

This is part three in the three part series looking at 2 Nephi 2. In the first week’s post we learned of the necessity of the atonement and resurrection. In the second post we learned about the effects of the atonement and resurrection and the need for opposition in...

Family Movie Night: Dumbo

Last week I told you guys about Walt Disney’s 3rd animated classic Fantasia and today we are profiling his 4th classic Dumbo.  For some Dumbo is seen as a controversial picture but I personally think those concerns are a bit overblown and they shouldn’t detract you...

You Make a Difference

"To the world you may be only one person, but to one person you may be the world." When I first read this quote it pierced my heart.  How often do we feel insignificant, and forget the difference we make in the lives of others?  When I became a mother this concept...

Lack of Faith is not Apostasy

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com Many years ago, I was in a difficult place in my life. My father was dying and a lot of other serious things were going wrong all at once. For the first time in a very long time, I found myself...

Everybody Could and Nobody Would

After writing last week, I felt a desire to do something MORE than just little acts of service as I go about my day—I want to make a bigger impact. So, this week, I re-committed to making a bigger effort to serve. I wish I could give the source for the following...

Not all Natural Substances are Healthy

Our diets influence how we feel on a day to day basis, and in large part determine our overall long term health, but unless you have an obvious allergy, or serious food sensitivity you may not even realize what is behind those nagging symptoms that are causing you to...

From the Ashes

What an incredible week it has been.  I think I shed more tears during the celebration and unveiling of the magnificent Provo City Center Temple than I did the day the tabernacle burned down. “How could that be?” you ask. I know. It surprised me probably the most. But...

Showing Love Through How We Communicate

The Clark’s Grebe is a water bird with a curious mating ritual. When a female grebe thinks she might like to see what the male has to offer, she invites him for a walk. But this isn’t just any romantic walk, it’s...well, it’s a walk on water. With incredible...

Why We Are Free to Choose Eternal Life – Part 2 of 3

This is part two in the three part series looking at 2 Nephi 2. In last week’s post we learned of the necessity of the atonement and resurrection. This week Lehi continues talking to his son Jacob about the effects of the atonement and resurrection and the need for...
