Parental Love

I've been pondering the concept of parental love of a "goodly" parent for the last couple of months. I am learning more and more from day to day that the love of a parent for a child is the most profound because it lasts more than a life time. It lasts for an eternity. It… Continue reading Parental Love

I Need to be Nice for Me

I am discovering more and more throughout life that God does not NEED me to be nice.  I NEED me to be nice. Helping other and being kind to everyone you encounter warms your own heart.  Helping others gives you a fresh perspective and keeps you from focusing on your own problems.  Drawing the focus… Continue reading I Need to be Nice for Me

Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

As we were leaving a Walmart parking lot yesterday, I rolled down my car window and gave a dollar to a homeless man on the corner. He grabbed my hand and genuinely thanked me for the dollar, but asked if I had anything for a headache. It was so hot outside. No wonder he had… Continue reading Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

As we drove along yesterday on a long drive, my husband and I were listening to passages from the book of Helaman in the Book of Mormon for his morning scripture study.  a thought suddenly occurred to me... These people were Old Testament people.   They had not yet met the Savior, even they had firm… Continue reading Finding the LORD of Lords

Refining Moments

I've been pondering an idea for a couple of days... If we will be humble, the Lord will refine us. I am not being refined in some dramatic fashion.  It's on a small scale.  No Saul/Paul or Alma experiences happening here.  It's more like a little every day.  And frankly, though it is painful in… Continue reading Refining Moments

I Believe

A few weeks ago I was helping a student pick a song for an audition for an upcoming musical at school.  As I glanced through the many musical theatre anthologies, my eye fell on the song "I Believe" from The Book of Mormon, the Musical.   So many of my friends love this musical.  To be… Continue reading I Believe

Not My Responsibility

I've been thinking about people who struggle to find happiness lately.  I have my days when life feels crappy and I have my days when life is alright.The more I seek pure happiness the more I understand that those seeking happiness take personal responsibility for their words, their behavior, their actions, their mistakes, their ideas… Continue reading Not My Responsibility

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

Warriors in the Making

I've been thinking today about what makes a warrior woman. A warrior woman is someone who defends core values. She stands up for what is right. She defends children and family. She stand for peace. She stands her ground and, if necessary, pushes for change. She isn't really about glory and is often going about… Continue reading Warriors in the Making
