what happened when i prayed

I recently wrote about how I was going to pray like I never have before for the Christians in Iraq. And I want to tell you what has happened to me since I began praying. The first thing I noticed was a feeling of absolute peace. I was driving on my way to meet my...

I just need to write about everything that’s been on my mind lately. Very sad things are happening around the world. I think that’s been happening ever since people had the ability to choose evil over good. In my faith, it is our belief that the children...

It’s been a little over a month since Joy’s Day. It’s been six years now. We were going to celebrate in Idaho, but instead we drove back from Idaho that day because Noah was sick. It doesn’t get easier. And it was hard because Noah wasn’t...

back to the beginning

I am back in Utah. Back to the beginning of when I started to really write. It feels strange. I think it’s funny how I kept feeling like everything was different–but it’s not Utah that’s different–it’s me who has changed. Going back...

I wish she would grow up. She wasted all her school time wanting to be the age she is now, and she’ll waste all the rest of her life trying to stay that age. Her whole idea is to race on to the silliest time of one’s life as quick as she can and then stop...
