Scripture Sunday

“I Will Go and Do…”

Today I have been thinking about an old scripture mastery... I think it may still be a scripture mastery, but I'm not sure because I am no longer teaching seminary.  This scripture may be the first scripture I ever memorized... way back when I was in seminary. "And it came to pass that I, Nephi,… Continue reading “I Will Go and Do…”


#bethelight – Day 141

This morning, as I was cleaning out the fridge for breakfast before our small road trip, I started to think about Jack Johnson's song, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  It is an act of kindness...  sometimes to your pocket book, sometimes to the environment, sometimes to your neighbors.  It is easy.  Turn of the light when you… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 141

I've been listening to meditation type music to fall asleep lately.  At first, I used regular headphones.  However, they hurt my ears.  I started searching for something I could sleep in and listen to my music that really was helping fall into a deep er sleep.  I found these: These things… Continue reading Satisfied with my SleepPhones

This week I mustered up a little energy and… Continue reading Approaching Spring


#bethelight – Day 138

Today I decided to  make the little things count.  Little things like holding the door open or letting someone go before you all count.  We are all so busy.  We are all rushing around through life.  We often don't consider the feelings of others.  A simple little gesture is a good reminder for me to… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 138


Learning Over Product

I just wanted to remind myself of these thoughts. In two weeks, kids around my state will gather for the State Thespian Conference. I hope they remember to focus on what they learn, not on the competition.

Resigning as the General Manager of the Universe

This past week I had the opportunity to attend Regional Thespian Competition and to give feed back to all of the tech entries of aspiring young theatre artists.  Most of the students attending Regional Thespian Competition enter acting and musical theatre pieces for the competition. Well.. I guess, technically the high scores qualify for State Show Case auditions.  What we all truly want for the students is an enjoyable learning experience, a chance to learn and improve.  While the day is structured around competition, the spirit of the day is focused on recognition of quality student work and constructive feedback from qualified judges.  The student experience is so much more important than the outcome of the day.  This was such a great opportunity!

The technical events I gave feedback to included costume design, lighting design, theatre marketing, scenic design, short film, sound design, and stage management.  It took me most…
