This photo was taken yesterday when it was in the 30s. But today... oh today.. It was 50° today! If you live in the Midwest you know that this is a huge deal. Tears were shed as we crawled out of our caves and felt the sun shine on our pale, frozen faces. It was

Watch this: Red Thumb Reminder. I saw this today and it struck a chord. The last year or so I've been looking around at what's normal these days. Looking at my own smart phone/social media habits I know I'm worse than some and better than others. But that doesn't matter. What matters is what I

Day 108: Who Am I?

I gave my talk today! It went horribly but I gave it and I think some people even were able to hear something they needed to. Those that could hear me that is. The gist of it was that we all have divine potential and we need to remember to keep an eternal perspective in

So yesterday Dex told me he hates me. I'm pretty sure it was the firstish time. Definitely the first time he wasn't yelling it. My Facebook post pretty much covers it perfectly: Today summed up pretty well: Dex - "I hate you and you are the worst mommy in the whole entire world and all

While we were back in the Omaha area for the weekend to celebrate some birthdays with family we visited our old ward (church congregation) with my sister who lives there. I love Logan but, even though we lived there for two years and I grew up going there, it never really felt like ours.Visiting was
