December is a crazy month. I feel so much pressure to get stuff done. Now "stuff" includes finishing my ever-growing must finish Christmas movie list, drinking a cup of hot chocolate while sitting on my porch in 75 degree weather, and finding the perfect gifts for e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e. Finding THE perfect gift for someone can be... 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. On Sunday, I attended Sunday School and the lesson was on "Good Leaders." We began discussing good leaders throughout the church, from... Continue Reading →

When it comes to the Mormon Temples a lot of people have questions and think it is a bunch of secrets. I have written about it before and you can read it here. I know this subject is sacred and so I will do my best to maintain that. I also am not pinpointing anyone... Continue Reading →

Single Adulthood-It’s a Thing.
My first encountering with a working woman wasn't until I was older. I was a lucky kid, my parents had it worked out so that my mom could stay at home and raise the six hellions. She was with us constantly, and I wouldn't change it for the world. Growing up, I thought that I... Continue Reading →
