The Funniest Thing Happened While I Shared My Testimony…

I love girl’s camp.  I’ve loved it ever since attending as a Beehive where we dug latrines and boiled water from the river so it was clean enough to drink.  I loved it as a Mia Maid when we hiked six miles to our campsite with packs full of freeze dried food.  I loved it […]

Can You See It?

I talk to  my plants.  They hear me.  (At least I pretend they do.)  I believe my plants like hearing they look pretty and are doing a great job of growing.  During a recent plant-whispering moment, I found a beautiful surprise!

Can you see it?

















How about now?

















There was a beautiful (and huge) moth resting in my flower pot!  It didn’t […]

Defining Moments

A year ago we moved from Lehi to Woodland Hills.  It was a tough decision to uproot the family and plant new roots in unfamiliar soil.  But this has been the most beautiful, fertile soil and lovely blessings have come from the decision to make a change.

Parents always worry about their kids making good friends.  […]

Leather Cuff Give-away June 2

This post is birthed from a very random thought I had this morning on the way to pick up my daughter from tennis.

The radio was off.

The car was quiet.

Thoughts were floating through my head like a leaf down a slow-moving stream, when this one stuck. “I want to do more good in the world.”  I began exploring how […]

Favorite Quotes – Women’s Broadcast

For the first time in as long as I can remember, I forgot about the Women’s Broadcast.

Naughty, I know.

Fortunately, I have responsible daughters and one of them said to me, “Hey isn’t the Women’s Broadcast on right now?”  We raced to the television and turned it on, listening to the last two talks.  Since then I […]

Last Friday my husband gave me beautifully stunning roses for our 25th wedding anniversary.

I posted it on Facebook. People seemed as shocked as I was at these uniquely giant roses. My Facebook page lit up with comments, shares and likes. As of last week the post reached 133,892 people. (Close to the number of Oreos […]

Going Home

Eight stars of gold on a field of blue –
Alaska’s flag. May it mean to you
The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes, and the flow’rs nearby;
The gold of the early sourdough’s dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams;
The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The “Bear” – the “Dipper” – and, shining […]

It’s a Good Day Today!

Do you ever have Eeyore-type days?  You remember Eeyore, right?  He is the gloomy, depressed, old grey stuffed donkey who is a friend of Winnie-the-Pooh. Once in a while I have days like that.  Sometimes the world just seems sad, like if you looked at a globe it would have a frowny face.

Yesterday was NOT one of those […]

Never Run Out of Hope

Last Thursday was the annual Author/Artist banquet hosted by Deseret Book for people who have published through them in the previous year.  I look forward to it every time!

One of the best things about the dinner, besides dessert of course (you know me and my sweet tooth), is we have the privilege of hearing from an […]

Carolyn Can

Dear Friends,

I have a big favor to ask.  I’m going to ask it right up front and then explain why.  I have a dear friend named Carolyn who is going through cancer for the fourth time.  She has battled it since she was nine years old with several years of remission in between.  She currently […]
