Granddad’s Organ Miracle

I was going through old papers on my desk today, and I was so happy to come across the story my Granddad told about the Washington, DC Temple Dedication in 1974. I read it, and tears came to my eyes. I felt that I needed to share it with each of you to show that…

Savior, May I Love My Brother (And Sister)

Sometimes we hurt. We have feelings of loneliness, frustration, confusion, embarrassment, defeat, or ostracism, all wrapped up in a bow of harsh judgments.

Why I Call You Princess

My beloved Eve, you are one year old today. Mommy and Daddy couldn’t love you more. You have brought so much sunshine to our lives. You are our Sweetheart, our Princess.

Brother’s Gonna Take Care of You

My boys are crazy – they run, scream, and fight, and their energy never seems to end. They play bad guys and good guys, and are rough to say the least. Now that they have their baby sister, they are still all those things, but around her they are gentle, sweet, and affectionate. They want…

The Faith of a Child

Bad guys are a hot topic in our house, usually because our boys love to pretend to be heroes. Rigel is a little different, though. He doesn’t just pretend to be a hero – he really wants to be a hero. He wants to be a police officer when he grows up, and he always…

I Love Primary Children

There are a lot of things that set my church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, apart from other churches. One big one is that our church congregations are run by its members. We do not hire our spiritual leaders, teachers, choristers, custodians, pianists, etc. The members are asked to, or called, to do…
