I feel like death surrounds me intimately. Not my own death, but the death of loved ones and loved ones of friends. My heart aches for us in our losses, for the Lord told us that we would live in so much love that we would mourn the passing of those we loved (D&C 42:45). … Continue reading Death is not the End!
State of anxiety So... I've been in a state of anxiety ever since this summer when I conceived the idea of a group of people using their God-given gifts (Which sounds silly, but is accurate: they are gifts God gave us after all!) and talents to uplift the lives of others. Then someone challenged me … Continue reading Just when you think you aren’t making a difference…
It goes like this: Zeke: I sick. Me: I sick. Dad: I sick. Wait a couple minutes... Me: I sick. Zeke: I sick. Dad: I sick. Repeat. It is also texted and IM'ed when it hurts too much to talk or if you're in different rooms and can't move. Email also works. Instagram isn't recommended...
I've been in bed a lot lately so last week I watched the entire Anne of Green Gables series. After successfully persuading a grouchy old lady to her point of view, said old lady tells Anne: Yet man is born unto trouble as the sparks fly upward.

When I was little I bemoaned to my sister Liza that no one ever wrote me letters. I mentioned it a few times, especially every time she got a letter when I did not. She then asked me something that changed my life: "Nancy, have you written anyone any letters?" After pondering it for a … Continue reading Have you written anyone any letters?

Which leads me to the stuffs I love to create the most which are the stuffs that cause the creations of laughs and loves from … Continue reading My Christmas wish for you
This is a follow-up post to It's okay. Read that one first. It's short like me I promise. For a recent post on overcoming fear I wanted to link some of the content to a post I wrote on fear a while back. So I did a search on my site and there was my fear … Continue reading Love wins again!
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of all the BS flying around at super sonic speeds about how if you just think positive, meditate, and act (though the action part is hard to hear in all the commotion of "just think positive") then everything in life will be peachy and easy.
