A new uplifting song recorded by Mormon artist David Archuleta is being enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

Politics

  Tonight I am sitting here in a “Meet the Candidates” forum.  The idea is for the community to come together and listen to the platforms of the candidates in our local races.  I find it interesting how diverse the opinions are in such a small community.  But even though I find this interesting, I [Read On]

21 Principles-Principle 21

Last year I started a personal challenge to share one of the 21 principles as covered in the book by Richard G. Scott.  I took a short break from the challenge off and on as I was afraid these posts would get lost in all of those other posts and challenges.  I didn’t want that [Read On]

This past weekend I  had the enjoyment of listening to the Semi-Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  It has been a weekend where the Spirit has filled my soul and warmed my heart.  I have been touched by many of the messages that have been spoken during each session.  [Read On]

Chicken Fajita Tortilla Casserole

One of my very favorite recipes is my one for Chicken Fajita Enchiladas.  But sometimes, I just don’t have time to do all the rolling and folding that enchiladas require.  Sometimes I just want the goodness and the flavor and would like to only do about maybe 1/3 to 1/2 the work.   And so I [Read On]

Windows

So I had planned an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes things happen that just beg to be the topic of discussion.  Today is one of those days. Today it is 27 degrees.  It originally wasn’t supposed to be nearly this cold.  But some weird front came through and the weather forecast changed practically [Read On]

Cold Showers

I have a strong love/hate relationship with our hot water.  When we moved into this house, we put in a supposedly top of the line tankless boiler system that would give me all the hot water I could possibly dream of and also heat our home.  It would be cheaper than electric and gas and [Read On]

Menu Plan Monday-Week of September 29th/2014

It is supposed to be chilly and rainy for the first half of the week.  My menu this week reflects that.  It is nice to have some colder weather foods again.  Though I am not ready for it to stay cold for long.  I do love my warm sunshine. It’s going to be another busy [Read On]

3 Things Sick

3 Things Thursday–The Sickie Files

Time for another 3 Things Thursday.  This time I am devoting this post to being sick since I’ve been sick all week. 1.  I hate being sick.  I mean utterly despise it.  I have never liked it or wished it upon anyone.  Ever.  2.  When I get super sick and run a fever, I hallucinate [Read On]
