We Write According to Our Prophesies
In addition to building, we've done a lot of writing this summer break.  My children have been really, really sick for the first week of vacation, so we've been doing a lot of things at home out of necessity.   The first thing we've been doing is writing da...

Hill Cumorah Pageant #Come2Cumorah
I'm happily spending my first morning in my own home in about 11 days!  We returned late last night from a most wonderful vacation...and for the first time in a long time, I'm returning from a trip feeling completely renewed and refreshed, instead of happy,...

Not the creative type.
I've been doing a lot of creating with my children lately, and since I see in them a great gift for creativity, I try to teach them skills that I never developed.  For most of my life I have believed that I was not good at art...I didn't have the knack for ...
