A Mission Call
This weekend just keeps getting better!  In addition to Scarlett's baptism and lots of time spent with grandparents who we only see about once a year, we got a phone call last night from my nephew saying that he just got his mission call to the Marshall Isl...

A True Story.
To say that something special is happening this weekend would be an understatement.  My oldest daughter is getting baptized, which is sort of the culmination of everything we've done as a family together over the past 8 years.  Every conversation, every tea...

Music of the Gospel FHE
My two oldest children, aged 7 and 9, started taking piano lessons this year, as did I at their age.   One of my children loves music and always has.  At her recital, she even sang while she played the piano and had more than a few parents tearing up with h...

Grateful for the Glue
I am so grateful for the glue that General Conference has become for our family.  This week, we had to make a decision about our travel plans which included an option that would have us away from my husband over General Conference weekend.  My children prot...

10 Blessings of Studying General Conference as a Family
General Conference really has transformed our family.  Last night, I wasn't sure what to do for FHE, so we did a GC review.  It took me all of five minutes to prepare, and we all generally enjoyed it.  Which, come to think of it, we do these types of mini-r...

a True Friend
This is one of my dearest friends in the whole world.  Her name is Sarah.  She is moving to a galaxy far, far away (Idaho), and I'm very broken up about it.  In fact, when she told me she was moving, I bawled like a baby and thanked her for ruining my Chris...
Let's pretend this isn't happening for the next week or so, ok???

The Baptism of Scarlett True
On the ole' blog here, I just don't always have the words to express the specialness of some moments. Or the will to share.  So perhaps I'll just share some pictures and say it was a wonderful come-and-get-it day (as my Mom would say!) You can see more phot...

I know He knows.
Someone asked the question in Sunday School yesterday about why women aren't mentioned much in the scriptures.  Actually, I think it was the teacher who brought this up for discussion.  Some people in class gave ideas about why this is so...they had good an...

What Did Your Children Learn from Conference?
I hope you had an absolutely wonderful General Conference weekend!  My children amazed me with their ability to sit and listen this time around. I guess that's what NINE years of practice watching all of the sessions together will do for ya!  Either that or...

A Very Merry UN-birthday to ME!
Earlier this year, I mentioned that my sister had given me a very special UN-birthday present with the instructions to only open it when I was having a gloomy, rotten day.  I loved the sentiment, but I vowed not to open it all year...and thus never give in ...

Loving Others and Living with Differences by Elder Oaks
In my last post , I told you guys how my dear, dear friend is picking up and moving to Idaho--off for new adventures in midwifery!  So, last night we had them over for dinner and had a rip-roaring good time. I really love her kids too!  So while they were h...
What do you do when you and a friend just don't agree on matters of importance? Elder Oaks reminds us to be kind and show love.

Scripture Study is More Important Than Sleep?
How important, would you say, sleep is to you? I am a person who tends to need sleep like I need oxygen...a lot.  I love sleep, I crave sleep.  I should probably learn to live on less sleep, but it is my thing! So when I heard Elder Scott say in General C...
