The Miracle of Forgiveness-Part 1

Homemade Salsa for Canning

As my garden veggies start to mature, I can't help but get excited about salsa!  This recipe is from a neighbor when I was living in Brigham City in my youth.  I love to smell this salsa cooking every Fall-except last Fall.  I had a baby instead.  So I'm really anxious to make some this… Continue reading Homemade Salsa for Canning

Look to the Past

Dear Baby Enoch

Nine years ago I watched my best friend from my Snow College days and her husband go through one of the hardest things a parent can go through.  That of losing a child.  I had called Sally on the 17th of July 2009 to check on her.  I was planning on going up to take… Continue reading Dear Baby Enoch

Three Rainbows

Today's post is special to me.  I reached out to Steffani on IG and asked if she would share her story.  I was beyond thrilled when she said yes!  Her father, Elder Von G. Keetch, spoke to our stake at stake conference a few years ago.  He was such a great speaker!  My kids even… Continue reading Three Rainbows
