  • The Enemy of My Soul

    Why should I give way to temptations, that the evil one have place in my heart to destroy my peace and afflict my soul? Why am I angry because of mine enemy?  Awake my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, O my heart, and give place no more for the enemy of my soul. 2 Nephi 4: 26-27   I know that there is…

  • Being Happy in Your Season of Life

    I recently had to return some things to my local Hobby Lobby.  I walked into the store and was not prepared for: scarecrows.  Pumpkins.  Home decor saying "Give Thanks".  Turkeys wearing pilgrim hats.  Now, I'm used to seeing Halloween decor come out after Labor Day, or even as early as Independence Day.  But here it…

  • A Letter Myself in Junior High

    A few days ago, I went to the junior high track across the street.  It was a nice day and I wanted to go for a run.  Apparently, the junior high girl's PE teacher had the same idea.  I was about half-way through my run when I was soon joined by at least 20 girls.  As I…

When I tackled potty-training with PJ, the first day was hard!  I tried timers, stickers, stories, etc. - anything to help him feel motivated.  I did more loads of laundry that day than I do in a week.  However, each day gradually got better.…

  • Don’t Stop Dreaming

    The other day I thought "I am almost to the point where I won't have to focus on weight loss.  What will I do then?  I've been in the weight-losing business for so long that, once it's over, I won't know what to do with my life."  Being The Princess Bride fan that I am,…

  • Taking Time to Set A Good Example

    Take the time and think about what kind of example you are setting. Watch What You Say A member in my congregation had a death in her family, and I volunteered to make a jello salad for the funeral dinner.  PJ, of course, wanted to eat some of the ingredients (like the Cool Whip).  I had…
