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
When my kids were little, I did my best to teach them to live a good life, to be nice people. I tried my best to show them the difference between right and wrong. I did my best to teach them to be their best self. "Train up a child in the way he should… Continue reading No Other Name
So many things to think about... it's exhausting. It is super cool that someone creative makes these little pictures that will now go in my electronic picture frame, reminding me of the many lessons learned this General Conference.

Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas A Savior is Born, created by Patti Rokus (don't you love how even her name includes rocks?) has given me a new perspective on rocks. https://www.amazon.com/Savior-Born-Rocks-Story-Christmas/dp/0310764963/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1533757608&sr=8-2&keywords=a+savior+is+born&linkCode=sl1&tag=rockstellstor-20&linkId=018660172ab1aecedcc921aed82af1c4&language=en_US She used rocks she picked up along the paths of her walks to create stunning pictures of… Continue reading More Than Satisfied With “A Savior Is Born -a picture book

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
Today my heart is overwhelmed with awe and thanks giving because of the greatness of God. I am inspired by the song, How Great Thou Art. A young Swedish minister, Reverend Carl Boberg of Monsteras, walked two miles along the southeast coast of Sweden in the rain and then was inspired to pen the words… Continue reading I Will Praise Thee Forever
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.
