What service looks like



I sighed. Frank had a fever, and that meant I wouldn't be able to make a short stop to check in on someone for church. I'm beginning to recognize how much true joy and happiness arise from serving others, and so I was really bummed that I wouldn't be able to experience that today.

December Goals + November check-in


I was a little discouraged as the sun set on the last day of November. My PowerSheets did not show much progress, I thought.

The secret about big families


I don't consider our four children a 'big family' (since I come from a family of 11!), but just the fact that I hope to someday grow our family is considered odd to a lot of the people I interact with.

Raising the Righteous Generation



No man knows, even the angels in Heaven, when Jesus Christ will return to the earth, but we are counseled to always be prepared. What if it's our kids that will welcome the Savior when the Second Coming arrives?
