What Does it Mean to be a Woman?

I’ve been pondering the question of womanhood lately. I suppose the word womanhood could be defined as many ways as the word love. It may very well mean something different to everyone. In 2017, does being a woman mean something different than it did in 1917, 1817, or...

Family History 2: Treasure Hunting

Living a Miracle

I love messages of hope. Our hardships give us empathy for others and opportunities to show gratitude. Perhaps the greatest miracle of all is the hope we have in Jesus Christ.   King Nebuchadnezzar demanded that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego worship the golden...

Good or Bad-A Story of How I Burnt My Breakfast

A new notion has entered my universe—Delisa, consider (just consider) that nothing that happens to you is inherently good or bad until your perspective/experience/belief system labels it good or bad.   Is my life really a blank slate that I mold into my expectations...

Loving Your Teens: the Power of Quality Time

Quality time can be one of the hardest languages of love to speak, especially for someone who doesn’t personally care about quality time. My oldest feels loved when we spend quality time with her. She’s constantly asking to do things together either with me or her...

Heavenly Light

A light-year is the equivalent distance that light travels in one year, which is about 9,460,000,000,000 kilometers (or 5,880,000,000,000 miles).  When we see the night sky we are literally viewing a point in time from the past, we are viewing history.  That celestial...

Nurturing New Members

Though I am generally well-integrated into the Latter-day Saint lifestyle and culture, there are times when I am reminded that I was not raised in it. In my earliest months and years, I frequently experienced such moments. I often wondered if I would ever feel as “one...

Clear and Present Danger

We have plenty of worthwhile experiences in our families. I enjoy writing and sharing pleasant, happy thoughts and joyful, remarkable memories. This, however, is not one of those times.   There was an occasion when I was a young man, probably just a boy, really, when...

Why the Mormon Emphasis on Missionary Work?

Ministering to the One

And if any man among you be strong in the Spirit, let him take with him that is weak, that he may be edified in all meekness, that he may become strong also.   Ministering is one of my spiritual gifts. It hasn’t always been a strong gift.   I remember the first time...

#LightTheWorld

This year, I’m sure many of you have already seen #LightTheWorld somewhere on your newsfeed. What a great way to share opportunities to serve each other during this Christmas season!   The Lord works with us one-on-one. We see His hand in the smallest details of our...

Dark Caves

I had the privilege of attending Missouri University of Science & Technology in Rolla, Missouri.  One of the cool things about Missouri, that I didn’t initially know, is that there are lots of underground caves to explore.  For a short period, I was involved with a...

Learning a Preparedness Lifestyle

Part of a preparedness lifestyle includes learning to be self-sufficient. There are many forms of self-sufficiency. Providing for one's family is one of the finest forms of self-sufficiency. How you provide in such a manner can be as varied as there are people on this...

Reboot

Sometimes you just have to reset the status quo and start over. It's like a reboot for your life.   Now maybe that sounds a little extreme, but on occasion, that strategy happens to be the only thing that really works. Let me provide a couple examples.   When I was...

Decorating for Jesus

Dad used to say, “When you’ve worked really hard, stand back and admire your work.” The Christmas season always gives me plenty of opportunities to do that. I love Christmas! I love it so much that I get carried away with projects that are time-consuming and for this...

The Call to Be Holy Women Continues for Two Centuries

The call for women to rise up and be holy has been ringing since the Restoration. I wanted to know if expectations and challenges for women had substantively changed over the years.   Had they? They have not. My research summation? Truly realize your divine heritage...

Personality Clashes and Charity

Doctrine and Covenants 12:8 And no one can assist in this work except he shall be humble and full of love, having faith, hope, and charity, being temperate in all things, whatsoever shall be entrusted to his care.   Every missionary has that one companion where...

The Happiest Place on Earth

Many years ago, B.C. (before children), my husband, my sister, and I were at Disneyland.  My sister wanted to get there when the park opened, so we did.  It was now dark, and we had been waiting 45 minutes for a famous splash ride.  We were in pain and crying (no...
