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...

birthday and baby blessing

I think of and miss my dad daily. 
He's kind of like my own personal north star.
He was constant in his thoughts and actions.
When he was alive I would always look to him and try to follow
the path he had outlined. I respected him and his opinions.
There are many days that I wish I could ask him for his opinion.
Many many times I just sit for a minute and ask myself,
"What would my dad want me to do?"
I continue to try to live my life in a way that would
 make my dad proud.
So I guess, even in death, he continues to be my north star,
my guiding light. 
Happy Birthday Dad!
p.s. you would LOVE all of these precious 
great grandchildren that keep coming.
So far there are 12 with 3 more on the way!
We continue to tell them about you and the
wonderful life you lived and the example that you were
and continue to be.

This baby boy was blessed at church this passed Sunday.
He is such a happy smiling baby boy.
He is a joy.

You would never know Katy is 38 weeks pregnant.
We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of another baby boy.

Happy Summer
