"We must... understand the rules of the game of life. First, none of us is exempt from facing life’s trials, and the fact that we are faithful does not assure us of a life without tests. This is exemplified over and over again in the scriptures as we review the lives of the prophets. Job… Continue reading Enduring to the End
I let yesterday get away from me. And I'll admit, I was being lazy and spent the day reading. 🙂 I do that every so often. I love to read and sometimes get wrapped up and refuse to put my book down. That was yesterday for me. Today, I'll put up yesterday's post and today's.… Continue reading Motivational Monday: Even though it’s Tuesday
Yesterday, after nearly 19 years of living with my oldest baby, we took her off to college. My baby is smart (graduated Valedictorian, got full-ride scholarships to her college), kind, loving, and beautiful in every way. She's a hard worker and takes her talents and increases them. If she wants to do something she may… Continue reading Big Changes…Big Blessings
Part of me would love to live in fall year round, but then, I'd miss out on my son's summer birthday. I'd miss the family summer camping trips. I'd miss Christmas and Easter.

The other farmer prayed for rain each morning, and while he prayed, he tilled his fields, readying them for seed. Then he planted his seed and prayed… Continue reading Are Your Fields Ready for Rain?
This week I read an article on the blog Voices in Bioethics titled: Transitioning From Who You Were to Who You Must Become: A Necessary Mental Switch, by Priya Misra. While I find the article extremely interesting, I'm not writing about medicine or the importance of good doctors in the world, which, even though I am… Continue reading BECOME WHO YOU MUST BECOME!
Okay, men, this is a post for women, but feel free to read it and discover what kind of woman you want. This is not to say that we are weak and cannot stand up for ourselves and others. Nor does it mean that we can't be popular with those around us or even have… Continue reading What Kind of Woman Are YOU?
Today's post came from the comments on my Humility and Pride post. It was written by one of my team members, someone who has become a dear friend and sister to me over the years, and someone I hold in high esteem and am grateful to God every day He put us in each others… Continue reading As He Dwelt in Tent
What do you think of when you think SELF-RELIANT? Do images of eating bark, readying for the apocalypse, or driving until you run out of gas and footing it across the country, possibly being followed by zombies come to mind? It may simply bring to mind images much like the ones above. Working hard, gardening,… Continue reading Self-Reliance
