Crepe fete video and recipe

Will brown rice flower ruin the Morey’s weekly traditional crepe fete? Come find out. To experiment with a healthier flour, I replaced wheat or white with brown rice.  It didn’t quite turn out the way I had hoped. The kids thought it took too long to cook.  They were right.  But, in the words of my daughter Casey, “The insides are tasty!” Just as it […]

Story Story: The essential part of any journey to success

My events leading up to finishing the book Story Story I awake from a dream I remember not.  I spy the alarm clock: 5:44 am.  “Yikes! It’s time to get Kaelyn to seminary!” I say as I strategically bump Denielle with my hand feigning a stretch.  She doesn’t budge.  My turn to get up. 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 […]

Because all of us who ever have, are currently now, or […]

The mind of God revealed in a weekend

My current vocabulary is not equipped with the right words to convey my joy of writing to you today.  The Spirit is strong right now, and what I mean by that is I can feel the fruits of the Holy Ghost: kindness, charity, joy, righteousness, peace, a desire to do good works, a desire to share my good feelings with others, and a motivation to […]

My purpose-driven blog post and its potential to drive you crazy

Living life with intent by prioritizing those things that matter most “I thought we would have more time to study together,” I commented to Denielle this morning as we exercised by walking the hills of a nearby neighborhood.   “How are we busier now than before this new adventure?” It is an interesting phenomenon that a worldschooling, blogging-podcasting-publishing-business husband could find very little room on his calendar for his wife.

How a hotdog, bounce house, and a pastor had an eternal impact

This planet is bursting with good people doing good things for good reasons.  They say hi when you walk by.  They share a kind word when you most need it.  They pick up trash in the park.  They pray with you in an Aldis parking lot.  They even offer hotdogs, chips and  cookies to a family hungry for lunch and friendship.  That’s just what we found […]
