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.

All is well

In church this past Sunday, we sang a hymn entitled “Come, Come Ye Saints,” by William Clayton. It is a beautiful song of hope that the Mormon pioneers sang as they made the long, treacherous journey across the plains to the Salt Lake Valley: 1. Come, come, ye Saints, no toil nor labor fear; But…

From Weak to Strong

My husband, Jad, has been going through an IT certification program since September. He has taken four certification exams so far. In preparation for each, he has attended all of his classes, done all the labs and pretests, and spent hours and hours studying. He has also refrained from ever studying on the Sabbath Day…

Let the Memory Live Again

As I have been writing this blog, I have felt this bold, and dutiful desire – even obligation – to share my past experiences, mistakes, trials and heartaches with  anyone in the world who would read my words. If you asked me last year if I would ever make a lot of these things public…
