(picture from facebook.  not sure who the photographer is)


Thank you to all that lost their lives defending our freedoms.  You will never be forgotten.

Scripture Sunday

Today's talks in church were about the following:  Progress and growth for the gospel within ourselves helps to share the gospel with others and The love of God motivates us to do missionary work. 
One of the scriptures from today references one of the hymns we sang during sacrament meeting:

"Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice." ~ Philippians 4:4

A Secret


Here it is!!!  My daughter's first self-published book :)

"Jane and Ben Geographic are your typical sister and brother. One morning, they happen upon a treasure map that leads them on an incredible adventure. What will they find and who will they meet along the way?"

I would tell you more...but it's A Secret.

In our own Backyard

Although this picture was taken a couple of years ago, it is amazing what we are able to see in our own backyard.

Scripture Sunday

Today was our Stake Conference.  The kids and I stayed home and had a nice quiet day.  The scripture that I am posting is from last week's Sunday School class...

"And we ask thee, Holy Father, that they servants may go forth from this house armed with thy power, and that they glory be round about them, and thine angels have charge over them;
And from this place they may bear exceedingly great and glorious tidings, in truth, unto the ends of the earth, that they may know that this is thy work, and that thou hast put forth thy hand, to fulfil that which thou hast spoken by the mouths of the prophets, concerning the last days." ~ D&C 109:22-23

There were many good talks during sacrament meeting today...mothers, charity and heavenly mother.  Here is one of the reference scriptures:
