This morning I was asked to help with singing time in Primary at church. I wasn't really sure I knew what I was going to do.

Breaking Free of the “Self-Pity Party” – Thoughts on Forgiveness
This week I was watching the Hallmark Channel series The Good Witch and I heard this quote, "Hate traps you in the past." This quote led me to ponder forgiveness for several days.

This is usually the case when we are in need of forgiving an… Continue reading Breaking Free of the “Self-Pity Party” – Thoughts on Forgiveness

Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 4
Today, as I studied 2 Nephi 4 for my scripture study, I was reminded of two important principles. First of all, I must say how beautiful this chapter truly is.

Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 1
Let's be thankful to God 365 day in a row. Join me in thanking God when the sun shines down on us and when we find ourselves weathering the storms of life.

Join me for the next year as I ponder on all of His goodness, tender mercies and blessing - large and small - that He showers on our lives each day.
No Other Name
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

More Than Satisfied With “A Savior Is Born -a picture book
I came across the coolest book! 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
LOVE is the Higher Law.
This past week I answered a question for my missionary daughter about the living a higher law. I gave it a ton of thought before I answered her. I decided that living the higher law comes down to the two great commandments... Loving God and Loving your neighbor. We are living the higher law when make… Continue reading LOVE is the Higher Law.
Warrior Women are Ready for the Day
Everyday I send my daughter out into the world hoping I have instilled this principle into her heart. Warriors put on their armory every day. A Warrior protects her mind with the helmet of salvation. A Warrior protects her virtue girt about with truth. A Warrior protects her heart with the breastplate of righteousness. A… Continue reading Warrior Women are Ready for the Day
