Joy’s birthday is October 2nd. I don’t think I am ready. This is the ninth year she would have been on this beautiful planet earth. I think this year I am realizing something very difficult. This is it. It’s not going to get easier. It’s not...

in Christ alone

A friend of mine posted a Christian hymn sung by one of my favorite singers, Adam Young (Owl City). One of her friends commented, “Adam Young doesn’t believe Mormons are Christians.” Well, we are, but sometimes I think it’s hard to tell. I...

hello, september.

Hello, September. It’s the 17th and I feel like I am just now realizing you have arrived. I don’t know what I would do without you. I hate to say it, but the past few years you have just been a reminder that it’s almost October. Almost Joy’s...

I’m sitting at the dentist waiting for the kids. It was a hectic morning. I have a headache. I stumbled one too many times today when I tried to go down the stairs. My left side didn’t want to do anything. It protested in pain and I tried to act like I...

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...

dear new homeschooling mom

It’s been a long time since I was where you are. Even then, 20 years ago, I was the oldest of ten and had been homeschooled, so it had always been part of my life. But, you, you are a pioneer. You knew public school wasn’t right for your children. It may...
are you a cast member?

are you a cast member?

Whenever I was “on property” (that’s insider talk for being somewhere at the Walt DisneyWorld Resorts…), I would always get a thrill when people would say, Are you a cast member? Sometimes people wouldn’t even ask that. They would just...
