Making these covenants is a big deal, a huge step on the path to living the life that Heavenly Father wants us to. But, on the flip side, once you do - you can’t deny that you weren’t made aware of what was expected of you. One of these things is to repent of your sins - and this isn’t just a one-time thing, you repent throughout your lifeRead More
So, I went through and changed all 300 pages. It was awesome. I think it was the right call to make for the story. My plan was to then go through and do some line editing, make sure I caught everything and I started to do that. BUT… then I got tired. Tired? Isn’t everyone tired? I know, I know.Read More
My special guest for this episode is author Parker Peevyhouse. She has been writing since she was young and is the proud winner of a writing contest held and judged by RL Stine. I’m a little bit jealous.

Fighting with my son over why he needs to eat his lunch and just take one more bite.Read More

It wasn’t until a year or so later that I allowed myself to be completely honest about what I wanted. I ended the very unhealthy relationship I was in and found myself on my own for the first time – really ever. It was then that I realized what was missing from my life.
It was God.Read More
I’m all about self-care. I’ve been about self-care for a long time now. Self-care means a lot of different things to me but the effect of it is always the same. I’m a little less grumpy, a little less tense and a lot nicer to be around.Read More
