My prayer for a good year… from a camping chair

As I sit in an uncomfortable camping chair—in a million-dollar home—watching the dawning of a new year through titanic tandem windows, I feel an urge to write rather than speak my morning prayer.

How a waterfall will wash away your troubles and trials

While housesitting in South Carolina, I prayed for insight and wisdom on how I might better place my trust in the Lord and in His timing.

I fetch a mason jar, fill it with water, throw on an overthrow, […]

Faith is like a little seed, if planted it will grow

“But we are only eight verses away,” Neil says excitedly as we were about to conclude our family scripture study.  “We have to finish it!” For the first time as a family, we are about to complete the Book of Mormon, cover to cover.  Yes, we have read many times from the Book of Mormon, but for whatever reasons, we seem to always start back at […]

Resting up. Reading. Library visit.

Tuesday is a rest day.  I use the time to read Break Free: The Ultimate Guide to House Sitting.  I took some notes in a Google Doc and shared it with Kyle. In the evening I started reading a book called Your First 1000 Copies by Tim Grahl.  I really like him.  Kyle and I have listened to him in a podcast.  The book mentioned and brought back […]
