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...

Proud to be an American

I love love love the 4th of July.
We have been partying since early this morning.




We love to go the cemetery to watch the fireworks.
I wonder what the fireworks look like from heaven.



Thanks to these guys!



On days like today I find myself reflecting on the important 
issues of faith, family, and freedom.
 These three issues are intertwined. 
One cannot be struck without impacting the others.
 I cannot adequately express the tremendous gratitude 
I feel to Heavenly Father for allowing me to
 live with my family in a time and place in which 
we have the opportunity to freely worship Him.
