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. 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!

safety fair

Yesterday Kim was involved in a safety fair.
I'm pretty sure she wasn't too happy having me follow 
her around with a camera.
I'd say, "Kim, smile..."
and each and every time her reply was.
"Mommmmmmmmmmm   STOP!"
Oh well
I did get some pretty awesome pictures.

Nora even had a cotton candy face.

Kim made some pretty awesome games 
for the children.

It seems that yesterday some were trying to make the world a better place
and others around the country were protesting and spreading hate. 
I think it's time we all do whatever we can do to make our
own communities a little safer for our children. 
It's time to honor our police officers, firefighters and EMS providers.
They are truly making a difference in the lives of others. 
We are so proud of Kim and her efforts.

This statement was released from our church today...

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement
 Sunday, August 13, 2017:
It is with great sadness and deep concern that we view the violence, conflict and tragedy of recent days in Charlottesville, Virginia. People of any faith, or of no faith at all, should be troubled by the increase of intolerance in both words and actions that we see everywhere.
More than a decade ago, the late Church President Gordon B. Hinckley (1910-2008) addressed the topic of racism when speaking to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He powerfully and clearly taught this principle: "No man who makes disparaging remarks concerning those of another race can consider himself a true disciple of Christ. Nor can he consider himself to be in harmony with the teachings of the Church of Christ." For members of the Church, we reaffirm that teaching today and the Savior's admonition to love our neighbor.
Our prayers are with those who are suffering because of this intolerance and hatred. We pray for peace and for understanding. Above all, we pray that we may treat one another with greater kindness, compassion and goodness.
