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

Service for Service

Happy Fourth of July!  I love this holiday.  It always makes me cry to sing our national anthem at church the Sunday before this holiday.  I am just forever grateful for those men and women who give so selfishly to serve and to keep us safe.  I hope that I can teach my kids to… Continue reading Service for Service

Do with Determination

In my scripture studying this morning, I was reading a talk from President Henry B. Eyring form October 1999 entitled Always.  I was struck especially by this one phrase "Do with Determination". He said " I plead with you to do with determination the simple things that will move you forward spiritually.  Start with remembering… Continue reading Do with Determination

A Reason To Do Better

I don't believe in coincidences.  Last year on President's Day, my sister-in-law signed up to feed the families at the Ronald McDonald house here in Salt Lake City.  I was so excited about that I asked if we could join her family!  So we went.  And it was such a neat experience.  I highly recommend… Continue reading A Reason To Do Better

One More Day

A few years ago, I started searching for a good podcast to listen to while I did dishes, laundry etc.  I wanted to use my time better as I did my mundane house chores.  I wanted to fill my mind with good things.  I came across this amazing lady, Kat Lee.  She at the time… Continue reading One More Day

His Quiet Strength

Sometimes it's crazy when you sit down and ponder how much time has elapsed since an event.  Today's post is a very special one by my friend Kelli.  I first met her when we moved in next door to her family.  She is part of an exceptional family.  They are all so kind!  Really truly! … Continue reading His Quiet Strength

Honoring A Hero

This Wednesday I'll be doing something a little different.  Instead of sharing a story, I hope to connect with you to create a story of your own.  This past December, I came across a wonderful family that donates items to refugees.  During December, the items they collect are pillowcases.  They had to be 100% cotton,… Continue reading Honoring A Hero

The Story of my Father’s Birth

Since this is June and the month to celebrate fathers, I hope to honor my father and share the story of his birth.  It is amazing and a miracle.  He was born in the winter of 1951.  He was born six weeks early.  At that time in our country, there wasn't much knowledge yet as… Continue reading The Story of my Father’s Birth

A Plea for Baby

With technology the way it is now, when you get an ultrasound in a pregnancy they can tell you exactly how many weeks and days old your baby is.  It's simply amazing to me!  When I felt so strongly that we needed to have a sixth child and that she would be a girl, my… Continue reading A Plea for Baby
