Tight Like Unto a Dish

Tight Like Unto a Dish

"And they [the vessels] were built after a manner that they were exceeding tight, even that they would hold water like unto a dish; and the sides thereof were tight like unto a dish; and the ends thereof were peaked; and the top thereof was tight like unto a dish; and...

Amazing Promises for Amazing Blessings

Amazing Promises for Amazing Blessings

Every so often I notice something in the scriptures that just rocks me simply by analyzing the wording and promises carefully enough.   Probably four or five years ago, it was Jacob 4:12 where he says ". . . for why not speak of the atonement of Christ, and...

The Things I Wish I’d Said

The Things I Wish I’d Said

Recently, my husband and I took a trip to Idaho to visit family. While there, we took a road trip to Yellowstone National Park. We stopped for dinner on the way back at a little restaurant in St. Anthony, Idaho, called the Idaho Burger Grill. A family heard us talking...

My Brain Is Tired

My Brain Is Tired

Oh my GOODNESS, I am going to lose my mind!   My friends have asked me what it’s like being my son’s mom. I am here to tell you that it’s a LOT of mental effort! If it’s not trying to keep up with his intense interests, it’s a lot of mind work to keep him safe...

Building Unity in Marriage

Building Unity in Marriage

“Unity among the human family is not natural. It’s a miracle and such great miracles require exceedingly great faith and works. It will only happen by God’s unique ways, which are higher than ours.” ~Ahmad S. Corbitt   This quote flashed to my view while...

The Value of Memories

The Value of Memories

Admittedly, I never gave much credence to memories. They were of course in the past and could not compare with the present — or so I thought. It has taken a lifetime to acknowledge the value they embody. Even now, I am trying to capture the magnitude of this...

The Parable of Time

The Parable of Time

With the outbreak of COVID-19, perhaps what I have learned the most about is time.    In days gone by, time was often filled with baseball games and soccer practices, shopping and vacationing, commuting and complaining about commuting. Back then, we all had busy...

The Painted Rock Project

The Painted Rock Project

For the past several weeks I have been working on what I've named “The Painted Rock Project”. It has been so uplifting and powerful. And I wanted to share, because I had no idea something so small could mean so much to me. I hope it will lift and inspire you too....

Here Is Hope in the Depths of Grief

Here Is Hope in the Depths of Grief

We received the call that our dog Stig had two inoperable tumors visible on a CT scan. The masses were in such unusual places in his brain and throat that the specialist couldn't safely take samples to see if they were cancerous tumors. She said we could try chemo on...

The Thin Veil

The Thin Veil

We are often reminded by the brethren that there is a veil that separates us from the spirit world. President Monson, for example, has said, “May we remember always, as we visit and work in these glorious temples, that the veil may become very thin between this world...

A Place of Safety

A Place of Safety

One summer my family decided it would be fun to raise backyard chickens. I went to the farm store and returned with ten tiny chicks. We put them in a bin in the basement with wood shavings and a heat lamp, and I enjoyed their tiny cheep cheep cheeps as I went about my...

Follow Him in Faith

Follow Him in Faith

It is not the big things that bring us joy—not directly. It’s the little things that make us happy. The big things are a result of the countless little things that we do.   We have all experienced missed calls. With today’s technology and our busy lives, it will...

Fences

Fences

The first time I saw the state of Idaho was in 1975. I went with my fiancé to meet my future in-laws. I was awestruck by its natural beauty. Beyond that beauty, there was one thing that really stuck out: there were no fences. Everywhere I looked, one yard ran into...

Prophets on Free Agency, Freedom, and the Constitution

Prophets on Free Agency, Freedom, and the Constitution

We're taught that free agency is a fundamental right inherent in being children of Heavenly Father.  Free agency or free will is the ability to act, but not to dictate the consequences of the actions.  As I studied this principle this time, I primarily searched for...

America Is Beautiful Because She Is Free

America Is Beautiful Because She Is Free

On the first Sunday of the month of July, in the USA, the hymns at church are specifically chosen to celebrate our nation’s Independence. I look forward to singing praises to God and country. It reminds me of the importance of this being a God-centered nation. It is a...

The Touch

The Touch

Over the summer I’m taking a BYU religion course exploring the four Gospels in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This course, as with most BYU religion courses, is taught in a very intellectual way. In order to understand greater spiritual messages and...

Maybe, Maybe Not

Maybe, Maybe Not

It wasn’t the typical setting for a gathering of  believers — or at least not something I had ever witnessed before.   The building was all locked up with the exception of one entrance. Sunday School classrooms were closed. Ushers stood at the door greeting each...

Doing All Things After All We Can Do

Doing All Things After All We Can Do

After great teaching by Aaron, Ammon, and their brethren, many Lamanites accepted truth and repented of "sins and of the many murders which we have committed." They declared their determination to keep their newly made covenants by physically burying their swords deep...
