I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

showing support for a fallen officer

This past Sunday, Derek Johnson,  a police officer from our town was gunned down.
Sunday night we attended a candle light vigil at the city hall.
We were asked to leave our porch lights on both day and night
until after his funeral.
Today his funeral was held.
The streets of Draper from the freeway to the cemetery in Sandy were
lined with flags. Residents were asked to show their support by lining the streets
for the funeral procession. My grandchildren were checked out of
school early and we all gathered to show our support.
It was an honor for all of us to join in and honor a fallen officer.

















Thank you Sgt. Johnson for your service.
