The People I Find: Gaza

There is a lot going on around the world right now. Last week, I received a message from my friend in Jordan who said she had found someone who wanted to share their story. Armen shared her story a few weeks ago, and it gave great perspective on what it is like to live in... Continue Reading →


Obama and Mormons

I am in no way a political wiz. I should probably be more involved in what is going on in the world, but for me it has become to contentious of a subject.

I didn't know any of the victims, but I remember the places.  I went to one of... Continue Reading →

The People I Find: Premature

The People I Find started back in February and the very first post was about Whitney. She shared her thoughts about being on bed rest, and how hard it was. I have followed her story of infertility and miscarriages on her blog, and always kept her family in my prayers. Whitney is a fighter, and... Continue Reading →

The People I Find: Comedian

It is not every day you meet a comedian. Last fall I attended a social media seminar put on by the well-known Thubten at Hotel 43 in Boise.
