What a Crazy Roller Coaster
…. or sometimes I’d like to know what the Lord is up to…. (but I’ll get to that in a moment) When I last left you the week began on a sad note. That week only got worse. I really do try not to be too attached to things. I promise. But when I was…
Pioneers, Bloomers and Women’s Rights?
Would you have ever thought bloomers, BLOOMERS, were a part of the Women’s Sufferage Movement?! Until last week I had absolutely no clue. I’ve been helping K. getting ready for a Pioneer Trek the youth are taking this week. I was converting some pjs and checking just a couple of details when google turned up some…
Be Still and know that I am God.
Conference still has one more session, but I have to say that I feel as if I have already been so nourished that I might burst. I needed this, more than words can express. With Easter coming I may have other thoughts, but for now I will simply quote a scripture that was quoted in…

I wasn’t prepared for the rush of love that I felt for every single one of those children. And…
Follow the Yellow Brick Road
It’s done and yes, it was insane. It took all week, but I finished C.’s quilt. It was insane enough trying to finish his quilt. While he was at school. One day I spent the day quilting out of the house just to be able to get in more quilting time. It also happened that…
It was the end of the day and the children had been singing for nearly an hour. Everyone had been working hard and the children had been doing a fabulous job. For the last song they were told the Bishop was in his office and we wanted to see if they could sing so that…
First Thoughts and Impressions
I love General Conference. I’ll post more later I’m sure, but the first session was so amazing I just couldn’t wait to post a few of the things that were stand-outs for me. (These aren’t all quotes. Some have to do with the topic of the speaker’s talk) When I was little all of the…
Here’s to Amazing Women
Relief Society is the women’s organization in the LDS church. There is a post on Segullah about Putting the relief in Relief Society that just helps illustrate why I love being a member of this organization. The women are simply amazing.
