Have you ever listened to the Broadway musical, Book of Mormon? It's one of my favorites. While I wouldn't recommend listening to it in the car with young children (as it was written by the creators of "South Park"), it's witty lyrics along with catchy tunes are sure to delight adult audiences. One of my favorite… Continue reading Turn it ON!
"Morning by morning new mercies I see..." ... Today a new favorite line stands out from the hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness;" from which this blog was originally inspired over a year ago. This morning I recall the many "mercies" (or blessings) of yesterday evening. Really all day, yesterday. Family members brought over supplies… Continue reading Morning By Morning – Benjamin’s Baptism

We as humans are programmed to think about ourselves first, and the others around us second. Survival of the fittest at… Continue reading The Servant
Today was one of the most odd days of "Spring weather" I've experienced in a long time. I woke up early (5:20am) and was surprised when I took Georgie outside for "Morning Potty," that it was a comfortable 65 degrees with little to no breeze. An hour later I'm getting ready and hear what sounds… Continue reading Promises and Pictures
