Misjudging

Have you ever misjudged someone? I have. I am thinking about it a lot right now. For much of this school year, I have been so very concerned and upset about one of my kids’ teachers. I have contacted the principal more times than I can count, and have felt so helpless thinking my son…

Challenges That Have Changed My Life, That Can Change Yours Too!

I adore our dear prophet, President Russell M. Nelson. Since he has become president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he has brought so much inspired counsel to the members of the church and the world. This past October, in the Women’s session of General Conference, President Nelson gave a very poignant…

This Is The Desire Of My Heart

    This is the desire of our hearts. (Mosiah 18:11) This little line has brought an abundance of the Spirit and tears to my eyes this afternoon. I was reading about the Prophet Abinadi and the beautiful truths he taught about Jesus Christ to wicked King Noah and his priests. Alma, one of the priests, believed…

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. It is heart-wrenching, and it leads to headaches, depression, and lots of crying. Sometimes the tears are from those who have been wronged, and sometimes the tears are from those who were…

A Full Plate

I think I am a “too much on my plate” kind of person. Is that crazy to say? I have been thinking about it, and even though people I care about tell me I do too much and need to slow down, I just can’t imagine myself ever doing that. I love to be busy,…

Many parents call their daughters Princess. I actually vowed I would never call you that because it was so cliché and 2-dimensional. But then,…

A joyful but difficult year

I remember the day I turned 22. It was only a couple months after my divorce was finalized, and a month after I had moved to North Carolina to live with my parents (along with my nearly 1-year-old son, Casey). At that point, I had been attending the LDS Singles Ward (congregation) in Chapel Hill,…

I almost yelled at my husband yesterday

I seem to always be in a hurry. Yesterday, I had my husband’s car, so it wasn’t nearly as easy to get the baby and my three-year-old into the car. I finally got them, and myself, strapped in exactly ten minutes before we had to be at Kamren’s speech class. That’s okay – that’s perfect,…
