A Familiar Name

My third child's name is Lydia.  My husband and I have always loved that name, so we knew one of our daughters would be named that.  Here she is just a few hours old back in 2008.:) It wasn't until after she was a couple years old that I realized we had an ancestor named… Continue reading A Familiar Name

Project AirTime

Today's Wednesday story is a little different.  I learned about this amazing organization by reading about it in the Outside Magazine in this article (there is a little language in here, so read at your own risk).  The article is about a man named, Matt, who became a quadriplegic and his friend Joe, who for… Continue reading Project AirTime

My husband and I are graduates from BYU, and my husband also graduated with an MBA from BYU's Marriott school.  So, we are lucky and get their magazines.  I love reading them.  I love learning about people going forth and accomplishing great things, serving many people, and finding joy in their journey. Today I want… Continue reading 40 Seconds of Compassion

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

Why I grow Sunflowers

This month marks eight years since a dear friend passed away.  I was blessed to serve with Shelly in my church with the young women for a couple years.  We grew very close in that calling. In my journal on July 16, 2010 I wrote about Shelly being diagnosed with a brain tumor and how… Continue reading Why I grow Sunflowers

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
