#bethelight – Day 201-202

I missed yesterday because I was so busy.  I think my act of kindness was to simply do my job.  Today I painted faces at a yearbook party at school and I played with my grand-kids so that their parents could go to the movies.  On top of that, I am hosting a scary movie… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 201-202


#bethelight – Day 200

Today I was really looking for that surprise act of kindness I could perform. The thing is, when your days are rather routine with work and stuff, it is often hard to find the opportunities to do meaningful acts of kindness. Then, at the end of the day, I remembered that my co-worker/friend had put… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 200

Warrior Wednesday

Warriors See Roses

Years ago I learned an important lesson... Be glad the thorn bush has roses. A Warrior sees the roses. In the past, I have been known to see the negative in things... maybe even everything. I don't remember when, exactly, but one day I woke up and realized that the only thing I could change… Continue reading Warriors See Roses

Adulting 101: Crisis

I hear a lot of whining these days.  It seems that many young people believe others are out to get them...  Or, they believe life isn't fair.  Dude!  The fair is in August. I don't get it.  I keep hearing the same childish behaviors from little people, teens and even young adults; behavior such as… Continue reading Adulting 101: Crisis


#bethelight – Day 199

Today I was nearly overwhelmed with the need of light and kindness in the world. Seriously! There are so many unhappy people in the world. I am learning for myself that little acts of kindness go a long way. However, the person that is impacted the most by random acts of kindness is me! If… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 199

Week 4 of Intermittent Fasting and 60 Week’s as a Nutritiarian

Is this a habit yet. Actually... no. Everyday I make a choice. Some days the choices aren't as good as other days. There are those busy days where a lack of planning bites you, or those days you attend a party and the best you can do is to eat a piece of cheese pizza… Continue reading Week 4 of Intermittent Fasting and 60 Week’s as a Nutritiarian

#bethelight – Day 198

Today I had a lovely drive to the airport with baby from an uddermudder.  We talked all the way.  I realized, well remembered, that sometimes all a person needs is a listening ear.  I don't need to give advice.  I just need to listen... and then give a little advice.  (cheesy grin).  Love you Sis!

Scripture Sunday

Pondering Revelation

I have been pondering the subject of increasing my ability to receive personal revelation. I have read President Nelson's recent address several times. I have read other materials on the subject. I have written my thoughts in a letter to my missionary daughter. I still have much to learn, but I have decided that I… Continue reading Pondering Revelation

Family Friday

What a week!

Last weekend Ben and Freya spent the night.  Lilli and I took them to the park on a walk.  We had pizza and watched a movie together. Lillian worked all day at the dance studio.  She taught class and helped withe picture day at the dance studio.  Meanwhile, I worked at the school for the… Continue reading What a week!
