Little girls become teenage girls, and teenage girls are complicated. They have strong feelings and opinions. They dream […]

    Maggie Nelson - Good advice, beautifully said!

    My teenage daughters are no longer teenagers, but I find that teenage angst extends beyond the teen years, and your advice still applies!

    Katie Clark - Yummy! I need to get some of this smart candy for my Jack. He has a sweet tooth like no other, even though he doesn’t get a lot of sweets. This might be a good compromise.ReplyCancel

I would never claim to be well versed in the ways of politics. I hear this and that on the news, but have never been involved with campaigns, but our friend invited us to his fundraiser for Senator Mike Lee the other day – so Jon and I thought we would enjoy a night of […]

    Valerie - A couple of months ago, my home teacher actually shared with us a movie coming out, The Abolitionists, about this. I’m so glad there are people who are brave enough to go and do hard things to rescue so many people. I am planning a blog post on the film. I would like to include info from O.U.R. so others can know how they can help, even if they aren’t the ones going out to the rescue.ReplyCancel

      Janae - Valerie, Yes – thanks for sharing. I can’t go with them – even though they asked who would want to, but I can share the information so people can help in their own way. Thanks for doing all you can do.
