Vessels of Abundance

Vessels of Abundance

The widow of a good man who worshiped the Lord approached Elisha. Her husband died, possibly killed by Ahab and Jezebel's righteous people purge. The woman told Elisha her plight. She now faced a creditor intent on taking her two sons as payment. I've always wondered...

The Blessing of Missionaries

The Blessing of Missionaries

I have written before about the life changing experience of leaving the city and converging on a piece of ground in southern Utah to build a homestead. That was back in 1976 and both a memorable and momentous time for me and my family. But interestingly, as noteworthy...

What’s Up with This Election?

What’s Up with This Election?

I'm like a lot of Americans.  I need to feel good about a candidate for office before I can vote for them.  And it's breaking my heart, while bringing my blood to a boil, to see the candidates for the two major parties stand up on stage and verbally duke it out.  One...

This is Hard

This is Hard

Caution- this blog post is rather raw.  My emotions are raw, and I am being honest in a way I rarely am.  I ask for forgiveness in advance.   Being a special needs mom is HARD, and lonely.  There are good days and bad days, like everything in life.  But for some...

Weighty Topics and Children’s Tender Hearts

Weighty Topics and Children’s Tender Hearts

Integrity

Integrity

Conference’s Modern Day Parables

God’s Idea of Success is Different Than Mine

God’s Idea of Success is Different Than Mine

When I was 13 or 14 we had a carnival at my church.  Each person earned tickets for winning games.  Those tickets could be taken to the prize table that was decked out with amazing prizes!  I was dazzled!  I found this gorgeous musical merry-go-round with majestic...

When Anticipations Go Awry

When Anticipations Go Awry

My dog and I are creatures of habit.  He calculates what I’m doing next based on the clothes I wear.  For instance, whenever I put on a skirt he knows I’m going to “church.” I’ll be gone for a while and he won’t be going with me.  He barely lifts his head to say...

Falling Through Grief

Falling Through Grief

“My face was in the floor.  I was crying and crying.  I thought it would never end.”  A friend told me of her divorce experience five years ago.  “There was no place in the world I’d rather be than with him, to just hug him one more time,” said another friend who lost...

God’s Great Gift

God’s Great Gift

Define yourselves

Define yourselves

Being an Instrument

The Ghost of Eternal Polygamy by Carol Lynn Pearson

The Ghost of Eternal Polygamy by Carol Lynn Pearson
